What is the Pride and Joy of your Collection?
« on: August 15, 2003, 01:14 AM »
This Question was pulled from StarWars.com fourms thought it would be a cool little thing to do on these boards as it seemed to be a big hit.

What piece of Star Wars history (or present) is the pride and joy of your own Star Wars collection and why? It can be anything, from the wrapper off your first SW video to the most expensive piece of art offered in the history of the world. Share!

Mine is my 12" Darth Vader Signed by David Prowse... I Have alot more items that are worth much more than it is, ut its the only Autograph I have from the Star Wars Universe / at least its the only one I know for a fact to be real.   :P

Well, originally my pride and joy were my two Blue Snaggletooth figures that I have from childhood.

But now I would have to say that my current "pride & joy" is my orange carded POTF2 Boba Fett figure signed by Jeremy Bulloch.  I have never met any Star Wars actors in person before, and this was my first autographed anything that I have gotten.  So, it was just one of the most memorable and honorable moments I've ever had relating to Star Wars.  Jeremy and I talked for 5 minutes about anything & everything.  He's a great guy to meet in person.

This may sound a little silly,  but one of my most prized pieces is my orange carded Tatooine Stormtrooper.  My signifigant other bought it for me a couple of years ago and surprised me with it when I went to California to visit her. :o

Man, tough call.

Either my ILM "Rumble" sweatshirt or my complete run of Jango Fett: Kamino Escape figures, considering I am the only person in the world with all 7.

Got proof? Sorry, but I actually have a hard to believing that, are there one of a kind pieces in that run or something?

Boy..tough call.  I'd have to say it's my autographed pictures.  Since I was able to obtain them all personally, they have a special meaning to me.

Runner up is my framed Queen Amidala picture from KFC.  It's such a gorgeous piece and something that very few people have.  This isn't the best picture but it's all I have at the moment:

If you’re counting stickers (i.e. Japanese TOMY), how about the Hasbro UK released US card with European sticker + the new Gold version on a Hasbro UK released US card with multi-European language stickers covering the lower third of the cardback and the POP?

There’s noting in my all-post-`98 collection that’s worthy of a particular mention other than my Watto’s Box Seat set that was very hard to come by in the UK.

My pride and my joy eh?

Well, having only 130 items in my current 3 and 3/4 inch collection, I can truly narrow it down to...my ARC Trooper. Since first I laid thine eyes on this awsome design in the comics, I said, gee, I wish I had one of those as a toy.


And look.


Now I do.
