Snow Globes
« on: March 11, 2006, 08:25 AM »
I got these from the starwarsshop. The AT-AT one has a fan inside it which makes the snow move around on its own, the New Hope Poster one has some lights which flash an dit plays the star wars tune.

I may have to buy that Hoth one.  The ANH one is weak I think...  I like the idea of lights and all but the details on it are disturbing.

I got a really nice Yoda Santa at a great price at Target before X-Mas.  Actually it wasn an early gift.  I have really enjoyed that piece and with the AT-AT being a favorite item of mine I may try picking that snowglobe up.  I didn't even realize that existed, so thanks Kirk.

I wa quite disapointed with the lack of detail to leia and luke but was happy with the rest of it. There was a few of them made, there was one of the ROTS final duel which has a removable vader helmet which when on you can see the duel through vaders eyes when removed its just a regular globe, I was tempted to get that one too but opted for the ANH one... perhap the wrong decison after viewing it close up.
Theres another of Sidous and yoda battling in the senate chamber and some smaller single character ones.

They're pretty neat.  The Santa Yoda one really sorta hooked me.

I don't buy these oddball things because it's inevitable that I get hooked on them.  Now I know I want some of these ones you pictured, and that ROTS one sounds just f'n incredible man, with Vader's helmet and the duel through it...  That's really nice, and "iconic" which is what I really like and look for.  Very cool.

i've found some pics of the others and info on the others:

Even in the midst of a Star Wars summer, fans can look forward to a flurry of exciting new snow globes now available for shoppers eager to get into the holiday spirit a few months early. With lights, sounds, and other cool features, this relatively new category in the field of Star Wars collectibles takes a giant leap forward with these exceptionally well-crafted additions to a growing hobby. Of course, most of these are not designed specifically for the holidays -- these can be successfully displayed year-round at home, in the office, or wherever a bit of Star Wars flair is needed.



 
Rawcliffe Darth Vader Snow Globe
Look into the eyes of Darth Vader and discover the fate of the former Jedi Knight! This innovative new snow globe features the dueling figures of Anakin and Obi-Wan behind the eyes of Vader's iconic helmet, the top part of which can be removed for better viewing. The sculpting and finish on Vader's helmet truly make this a striking piece to behold, paired with a breathing sound effect with lights that modulate to its rhythm. The tormented mind of the Dark Lord is revealed in this artful sculpture that measures over nine inches tall and will easily be the most intimidating display in your Darth Vader or snow globe




Rawcliffe's Yoda vs. Sidious Snow Globe
The climactic battle between Yoda and Darth Sidious is effectively captured in this great new snow globe which pairs great sculpting with clashing saber sound effects. The venerable Jedi Master has it out with the Sith Lord Sidious atop a floating senate pod. Surrounding the battle is a striking base that recreates the Coruscant cityscape in amazing detail. With a globe nearly four inches in diameter, the sizable base really enhances the presence of this piece in any display setting, expanding the width to nearly eight inches!


Rawcliffe Mini Snow Globes
Yoda, the droids, and Darth Vader are all featured in a cool set of new mini globes that come alive with a quick shake -- R2-D2 and C-3PO appear to be suddenly caught in a Tatooine sandstorm while Vader becomes engulfed in an eruption of Mustafar embers. Yoda stands pensively on Dagobah, while a Forceful flurry of gold and emerald glitter "surrounds and penetrates" the space around him. All three globes are mounted on finely sculpted bases that feature the characters' setting and Star Wars logo.


Kurt Adler Santa Yoda Snow Globe
Ralph McQuarrie's classic image of Yoda in Santa outfit has been transformed into a wonderful new snow globe which features festive Star Wars holiday scenes on a sculpted base. Classic wind up music box movement plays "Let it Snow" while a delicately sculpted Yoda peers out from a snow-filled globe. Measuring nearly six inches tall, this is the very first holiday-themed Star Wars snow globe ever produced, and will likely not be the last. Get this first in a possible series now while you still can!

Try looking on eBay as well, there are some bargains out there if you look hard enough.

I have picked up the ANH,  Vader w/ anakin & Obi Wan battle, Hoth, and the AOTC globes so far. I like these, they display well with the Code 3 sculpted posters.

I NEED that Vader head one and the Hoth one.  Those are sweet, thanks again for pointing those out. :)  That Vader head one is simply too iconic not to have on the display shelf.
