    Since there aren't really any Transformers I'm interested in buying at the moment, I've been expanding on my Star Wars collection. I just recently bought the Episode III Concept Art Anakin, and it is a very nice piece, though my fave is probably my Celebration III Vader. What're some of you guys fave Star Wars collectibles?

    I have a bunch of Master Replicas and fan made lightsabers. I actually just bought a new display case for my Darth Maul saber. Other than those, I would say all of the SW vehicles I have accumulated. Unfortunately I have no room to display any of them.

    I have about 4 boxes of orange and green-card figures (one box with only Stormtroopers!), vehicles, and misc stuff from the special edition movie releases that I no longer have a desire to collect. I decided to focus on my Transformers collection after I got married and it's extremely rare that I buy any Star Wars stuff anymore and if I do, it's usually something Darth Vader or Yoda-related, or a T-shirt.

    I do love the concept art books and any coffee table-edition hardcover Star Wars books I happen to find used at thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales.

    I think my favorite piece in my collection is my "talking" Darth Vader coin bank. I also love the "Star Wars Unleashed" figure line -- it blows my mind some of the prices dealers want for these currently.

    I have three lithographs of the original posters that came with the recent "unaltered" original trilogy. I framed them, and they look awesome on the wall.

    The Vintage Yoda figure I've had since I was a kid. All the accessories have been lost, but with that impish grin he doesn't really need any. Dozens of Yoda figures later and he still hasn't been topped (although the new Clone Wars Yoda comes very close).

    I love this thread idea!!

    It is tough to pinpoint one single item for me, but for me they would be the following:

    my vintage darth vader from esb
    my jeremy bulloch autographs (figures and pics)
    my david prowse autograph
    my master replicas lightsabers
    my bmf (big millenium falcon) from 2008!! This is by far my favorite vehicle ever!!
    my "vote for vader 2008" t-shirt
    my "support our troops" (with stormtroopers) t-shirt

    Don't have much, but from the EP3 series I got the 4-saber Gevious and the hologram transmission of Plo Koon and Aayla Secura.

    I must, say all nice. And yeah, it is difficult to pinpoint just ONE awesome collectible. When I went to Celebration III I had a lot of my figures signed, love all of them. Definitely the coolest event I've ever been too. I'm sure if I went to Botcon I would have a most excellent time.

    Oh, where to begin.

    Master Replicas Darth Vader Lightsaber
    Clone Wars Turbo Tank
    Millenium Falcon from 2008, or commomly referred to as the BMF.
    Clone Wars Animated Commander Gree
    Clone Wars Animated Commander Cody
    Clone Wars AT-TE
    Magnaguard Starfighter
    Corporate Alliance Tank
    McQuarrie Concept Darth Vader
    My Official Pix Autographed picture by David Prowse
    Luke Skywalker Figure signed by Mark Hamill
    Clone Wars Animated Cad Bane
    Premium Format General Obi-Wan Kenobi

    And when I finally find one, the new Clone Wars Y-Wing. The size of that thing is so ridiculous it isn't even funny.

    I forgot to mention my Goofy as Darth Vader figure from Star Wars Weekends at Disneyworld. It isn't really a rare item, but I think it's really cool because it is different.

    Also the silver R2 and Boba Fett exclusives from a few years ago.

    Yeah I dig the silver figures a lot. Pretty much any figure of Vader is a must for me. The only silver figure I have is Vader, but they're all really cool. And yeah, I like my McQuarrie Vader also dude. All the concept figures are must owns for me.
