    I'm a collector in the USA and my wife, who is Thai, will be visiting near Bangkok in November. Does anyone have any suggestions of places she might look to find me a Thai Star Wars collectible that I might not know about? Are there any items unique to Thailand that she should be looking for?

    Hi Sabacc. I also have a Thai wife who tolerates my collecting ;)

    On recent trips to Thailand she's found some knock-off figures which although non-licensed have some novelty value. A couple of years back I saw a stall in the Mah-Boon-Krong (sp?) selling some ordinary action figures. I also got some Ep IV-V-VI videos produced for the Thai local market with variations on the covers. I guess there would be similar DVDs now.

    Other than that, don't know of any specific collectors places. Just need to keep your eyes open.

    Thanks DM, and thanks for the PM to point me to this reply.

    You've got it right when you say my wife tolerates the hobby. I take it pretty seriously and she's got no real love for Star Wars, but I'm pretty sure she'll keep her eyes open for something when she's there. Thanks for the ideas!
