    Got a pic? I'd suggest searching recent eBay auctions to see if any have sold and what they went for without an autograph.

    Humm is it a Don Post mask? Or was it Halloween quality? If it was Don Post it might be worth quite a bit, I know his early masks are pretty highly sought after.

    A frame with all the Star Wars posters and the original film strips that Lucas used when cutting the movies.

    Thanks. The Chewie came from ebay and I was surprise how soft it was. I think it was hardly played with.

    The Kenner blasters are great, they don't look small in an adult hand and are pretty authentic for the time.

    I used to have the ESB version of Han's blaster above. Really regret selling my childhood Palitoy/Kenner collection back in 2008. As a job lot. Arghh!

    Oh man, I missed out on one today on Ebay, Tusken Raider! But card was cut, but there will be some opportunities in the future to grab one, maybe even Vader!

    My most prized collectible of a Blue Snaggletooth may have been topped when i purchased a lot that included a Yak Face! Has some paint loss but after selling most from the lot it paid for him so i cant complain...a free Yak Face after selling is an unbelievable achievement. Managed to get that Tusken Raider 12 back also!

    Ha just lucky that the lot i bought him in had rare figures from other countries MOC. To tell you the truth i get just a big kick of finding items like a Republic Gunship at a thrift store for cheap. That is an awesome feeling too. Great find.

    Wow, great pick-up @whostheBossk! Lots are tricky, but if you get lucky you can get the figure(s) you want and piece out the rest, paying for them in the process.

    Beyond the movies, I'm mostly into getting copies of books (the novels) that I like.

    I'd kind of like to upgrade all my old books to the new "Legends" reprints, but I'm not sure how badly I want to spend the money on that (I've gotten most of mine used for a few bucks).
