    f you had to pick ONE and only ONE! star wars collectable that you have currently, what one would be your favorite(not the most expensive) the one that brings you the most joy.

    Mine is the custom tunic that I have that was designed with a Sith robe that I have, I LOVE IT!

    This random Episode 1 Obi-Wan statue thing. It was my first real big Star Wars thing (besides a couple action figures) and the circumstances of getting in were kind of cool (for me, at least)

    Also, my Unleashed Darth Vader (ESB) just because its a nice representation of a CLASSIC Star Wars scene.

    [EDIT] Spelling FTW...

    Tough one. I'd say my vintage Burger King glass set (I'll count all 12 as one collectible since they're a set ;) )

    They're not the ones I had as a kid (Those were washed a thousand times and are probably at some garage sale right about now, I bought these from ebay) but I love them and they bring back a lot of memories of my Father & I and our weekly Saturday lunches together (Mostly at Burger King).

    That is definately a special one. I would say that would be your best choice in that. I think that it is a good choice for you.

    I picked out the colors and the pattern and I had someone else do it for me. I am not that great at sewing or anything like that.

    Hard to tell. Right now I'm very fond of my GG Speeder Bike statue. First GG statue I bought and it really is a marvelous item. But my eleven vintage Royal Guards and eleven vintage Snowtroopers are also among my favourites.

    If games count (the collectible with the most replay value :p ), I'd take Rebellion for the PC. As for more conventional stuff, I'd go with the 12" Dooku figure from AotC.

    For the past 15 years I have wanted a Full size Vader to display. Last year I finally got that wish and I can wear it which makes it all the more of a dream for me.

    My beloved RotJ tankard!...it was the first SW item that I spent silly money on & made me realize how much of a slave to the force I had become..but in a happy way :).
    I also love my vintage 1977 Princess Leia figure..my girlfriend got her for me on ebay because she knew I needed her to complete my most wanted vintage figures list...true love eh? [face_dancing]

    It's a toss up for me between several items:

    My Signature Series Darth Vader lightsaber bought at the original Magic of Myth Tour Store in Washington DC, signed by James Earl Jones, which I later had signed by Dave Prowse.

    My original FOUND Graflex lightsaber that I built myself. I tracked down a near mint Graflex at a local camera shop for $20! I asked the owner if he would take $15 and he did!! :)

    My copy of Ben Burtt's Galactic Phrasebook, signed to me by Ben.

    My original 1977 Christmas present, the original 12" LP record version of the original Star Wars Symphony soundtrack. The front cover AND one of the records themselves is signed by John Williams.

    Some can be seen here:
    My Star Wars Collectibles

    Too many to choose just one... :^)

    I can ONLY answer this question by categories:

    Favorite Vintage Figure:

    White cape Princess Leia - my favorite toy as as kid

    Favorite Vintage 12" Figure:

    My Princess Leia in Box

    Favorite Modern SW 3 3/4" Figure:

    Ok - I don't have one - my collection of prototypes.

    Favorite Modern 12" figure:

    My Sideshow Luke Skywalker - he's my first and will always be my favorite :D

    Favorite Bargain Find:

    Ebay - $25 for my Vintage 12" scale IG-88 - followed closely by my FAO Faamba from Savers for $3.

    Favorite non-toy item:

    My vintage Sigma C-3PO Tape Dispensor

    Favorite Statue:

    My Illusive Concepts ESB Yoda

    Favorite Poster:

    From this Fall's FIDM Exhibit - would've been my ART OF STAR WARS exhibit post from 95 except I lost it in my last move :_|

    Favorite Custom item:

    My Vintage Customized 12" Princess Leia collaboration doll w/ JediMistress.



    Now out of ALL of these items which would I grab in case of a fire? I'd probably have to pass on all of them as I'd have to spend all of my spare minutes digging my cats out from under my bed :(

    Wow, and I thought i was bad for collecting and then come along you guy and gals! Leia, I think soon enough your going to have to buy your own house just to store all your collectables.

    So many good things.

    Part with your car? lol now if it was a jango fett costume that had actual rocket pack on the back...hmmm i think you might have a good idea.

    Same here. Maybe after giving it some thought for a while I can narrow it down. I just have so much cool stuff that I love it's gonna be hard to decide.

    Isn't it "Collectible"? :p


    Anyways....probably my collection of SW movie posters that I got professionally framed last year. Okay it's not "one" but more like 13 of 'em. Maybe this summer when I get more of my collection displayed how I want it and such I'll take some pics.
