The pride of my collection bounces between several things. One is a styrofoam r2d2 that stands about 5 feet tall, he was a shampoo/ soad display from the early 80s. he is very fragile of course so not very many survived. Sansweet has one and gus says he has one, I have never personally seen another one.

Second would be my collection of vinyl banners. They are sentimental becuse each one was its own challenge to "obtain". None were paid for because no one would break company policy and sell to me when done. Taco Bell had alot more than the banners so I quit my job and became a Taco Bell store manager to have first and only dibs on everything (plus a second round of all advertising to keep new in the box.


And third is my employee pass from Celebration 2. Has my nme on it :)  :)  :)

A vintage Chewie I put on a card and star cased. More sentimental value as it was the first figure I got back in 1978.

This is a really tough question.  Everything is my favorite for different reasons.

All my vintage stuff, because it's what started me on this little frenzy and are my favorite childhood toys.

All my original framed movie posters up in my living room (now that I have all six!)

My MR Obi-Wan sabers, just because they look nice on my desk.

Also I really like my "oddball stuff"--The SW Nascar cars I have, the film trailers, Darth Tater, C-1, C-3 and insider passes (Need to get the C-2 ones) and the Disney items Jedi Mickey, Darth Mickey and the star tours pass, just because they're not the standard action figure n such have a great appeal to me.

Mine would be a double telescoping vintage luke in kenner baggie.

Getting ready to send it to AFA for grading and authentication.

 Well, This one's a bit of a story. I had a temp job being an assistant to the promotional director of 20th century fox for the premiere of ROTS, and he paid me in tickets (Two to be exact). I got to reserve seats for VIP's and myself and the person going with me. I brought back what we used for reserving the seats. It's a piece of paper that says "Reserved For 20th Century Fox Employee" and it's got the ROTS logo on it.

 The premiere was awesome, too. I got to watch the film three hours before everyone else and a really cute girl was in the seat next to my reserved one when I went to sit down. We were flirting and I got a date with her, lol. It was quite funny, actually. our conversation started along the lines of: "Hi." "Hello." "I sat here 'cause I figured if i'm next to a reserved, these must be good seats." "Well, I am a 20th century fox rep  ;)"

I would have to say my DeathStar playset. It's one of the first SW toys I ever had.

I think I mentioned this in another thread somewhere else on the boards here, but my favorite piece and the one that I would mourn longer and harder than any other piece should I lose it all is the 1983 Burger King ROTJ glass with Vader, Luke, the Royal Guards, and the Emperor on it.  I got it when I was a child, and I've kept it safe ever since.

It has no monetary value, 99% of the collecting world couldn't care less about it, but it's my favorite piece and it means more to me than everything else in the collection.  :)
