Very hard to say.  From modern it's probably the Riddell Stormtrooper helmet.  I really love the Riddell helmets adn that one's just plain neat.

Vintage stuff would be Yakface.  It's a cool figure, much better than the modern version.  I thought I'd be paying a fortune for it but I managed to score it, in excellent condition for only $65 on ebay.  I was the only guy that bid.  Strange too because it was listed properly.

one that ranks right up there with me is the Blockbuster EI Yoda given to me for my birthday by a girl I had just started dating back when EI came out. Long story short, we are getting married Oct 1 of this year!

I have a new "favorite" piece... my 1977 original Star Wars Style "A" poster:



It's not in mint conditon - it's got some pinholes and a lot of edge wear - a lot. But IMO that just adds something to this piece, seeing as it was more than likely hanging in a movie theater some 27 years ago, and survived all this time. Plus I got it for a steal (under $10). I'm really digging my poster collection lately, and I'm always looking to add to it. Next item I want to go after - and that will most likely take the place at the top of my favorite items list - is the ESB 15th Anniversary Mylar Boba Fett poster. I've wanted one of those sine the first time I laid eyes on it. Man I want to kick myself for not buying it back in 1995.

Hey!  You've got the Epic Force Obi-Wan!  Do you have the Han/Chewie as well?  I still want to get those pieces, probably the only person alive.

Ha!!

Actually, I don't have Han and Chewie, but I also want to acquire them someday, as they are the only two I'm missing. I picked Obi-Wan up on ebay for about $7 one day, but I've been unable to find the other two at a reasonable price.

Dang, that poster is soooo nice. It just oozes nostalgia. :)

As for my pride and joy, well, it's my POTF Stormtrooper coin sculpt:


I also have the hardcopy to match.

This is one of my favorite items I have added to my collection since CIII:



It's the CIII variant Redhead Padme... it's a one-of-a-kind.  She's precious, priceless, and not for sale or trade :^)
