    the orginal box sets of the SW movie Executer edition
    which now is worth 350 pounds
    At the time it was 80 pounds

    I was going to purchase the lego Star Destroyer

    Its about 1 metre

    that would set me back 240 pounds

    My most expensive purchase has got to be the LEGO AT AT.

    I might be trying to get a Master Replica of Luke's ROTJ saber or the LEGO Star Destroyer. That would certainly set a new purchase record.

    Either the Lego AT-AT or the Queen's Royal Starship (TPM).

    I was in London England, and I finally saw an Ewok Plush. Of course it was at Forbidden Planet, so it was quite expensive. Something like 60 pounds (which is around 180 I believe for me... or at least it felt like that).

    I'm so glad I picked it up though.

    Yet I have a Darth Vader Standie in my room that I bought for $5 and got David Prowse to sign it for me at a convention. He didn't even ask me for money for the signature. It's great to be a blonde.

    I have the Obi-Wan AOTC and the Anakin AOTC Master Replica Sabers at around £250 for Anakin and £300 for Obi-Wan.

    I have the Interactive R2-D2 - £120, Blue Snaggletooth (should have been £125, but swapped it for a lifesize Jar Jar Right arm that I had spare), Life size Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks £150 each, and that Chronicles book they releases a few years back £100.

    I think that's all with regard to Star Wars.

    I got the Samuel L. Jackson autographed Lightsaber. Not the plaque autographed, the signed lightsaber. That one hurt the bank account, but I HAD to have it. What really sucked was it came with the standard case, so I'm going to have a custom case built for it (been procrastinating).

    A couple of years ago I bought three vintage Star Wars metal lunchboxes. One from each film; ANH, ESB, and ROTJ. I think I paid about $20 for each one. Possibly less, I'm not a big spender when it comes to collecting. They're all in beautiful shape and even have the original thermos intact.

    You got all three for $20 each and in good condition with their Thermos intact? WOW!!! That's an incredible buy!

    My most expensive SW single purchase would have to be the Collector's plates and porcelain cards I recently won from PadmeLeiaJaina for $127 (shipping included).

    my individual purchases are usually small...i can't think of much over $50. where i get in financial trouble is in places like the garage sale i mentioned in the "new aquisitions" thread. i didn't just buy some stuff...i bought the whole garage sale. 100 bucks for all the guy's star wars stuff. i just hope some kid doesn't come back from college and say "dad, what did you do with my star wars collection?"

    Around the start of spring this year, I ended up laying down around $200 on Star Wars CCG cards, including $130 for an almost complete expansion and a while collection of Luke Skywalkers. I use the cards in game play, but I still consider them collecting all the same, especially the two ultra-rares (Luke Jedi Knight and Emperor Palpatine) that I have duplicates of. I should sell the duplicates, but I just can't bring myself to.

    An update from my side - my most expensive Star Wars purchase is now the Master Replicas Anakin Lightsaber Signature Edition. The saber itself was $499 and with custums it adds up to a total of about $650.

    Hi there,

    Most expensive.......

    Toywise, an Early bird certificate package for around $600. One of the very few vintage pieces I needed to finish off my vintage collection. Had been trying to pick one up of this calibre for years, it's expensive, but this one is as good as they get !

    Also picked up a huffy ride on Speeder bike for around the same amount, but that was years ago so allowing for inflation would probably be the most expensive.


    Other Star Wars collectible wise....

    I have been known to dip into the realms of $10K plus at the odd auction......

    Please don't ask me to elaborate, but suffice to say that I also deal in general movie props & ephemera..??!!

    And please let me add that this is in no way a feeble attempt to brag, it's just that I run my own business so sometimes am in the hugely lucky position of having expendable income which I'd rather spend furthering my collection than on a flash car or clothes, etc.

    Most Expensive? $135 on a carded Tri-Logo Power of the Force Yak Face. I used to go to this comic book/toy store years ago and one day i went in there and the owner showed me the Yak Face. Told me that a friend of his went to England and bought like 3 of these. I gave him $20 and made payments like every week or so. He held it for me even though a couple of guys came down from Toronto and offered him the full amount in cash that day. :)
