I'd give my left nut for it...  Owning original prop models from ILM would be a dream come true I think.  Especially knowing exactly which ship this is, which is cool.

Also note...  It's NOT WHITE...  :)  People really believe the ships were white.  They're not.  And the TIE's are not this color in the later movies either.

I like the payment options that they take Check. Like any "COLLECTOR" has 170,000 in their checking account.
"...Duh, Winning!"

I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Profiles in history has had a lot of high end items on the bay from various movies & TV shows in the past.

Gary Kurtz Star Wars Artifacts

Neat stuff to look at but yeah, break the bank but I'm use to seeing high prices for pieces. 

Now this is something... Master male molds for X-Wing fuselage

Nope, this is... choose wisely.   8)

He might as well put up a sign that says, "Hey Mr. Sansweet, are you interested?"

He does not take PayPal...so he has lost a sale...

Besides, I'm not spending that kind of cash if I cannot sit in it myself, and possibly sleep in it once my wife finds out that I bought it...

The spaceballs dinner and the landing plateform would have been a great piece to hang up within a tie/xwing battle.

Honestly...I'm happy that someone has the kind of wealth that they can do that if they want to, but really?  If it comes down to a decision of "Should I buy a kickass movie prop, or should I buy a home for three..maybe four...families in need" it really begs for a little perspective....

I thought the song went "If I had $1,000,000 I'd be rich".   ;)
