It's one in the same, the vintage Imperial Shuttle. I spent $85 on E-bay. It came w/ the orginal box and papers. Also part of the shuttle was actually still in bags. It so beautiful.:D

The most I've spent was for a $75 dollar AT-AT,which broke 3 days
later.Needless to say,I dont have a AT-AT anymore,but I do
have more action figures :D

And my most cherished SW item is my set of Taco Bell toys
from when the 20th Anni happened.

I spent 85.00 on a AT-AT and my most cherished item would be the falcon. Something about it has always got to me even when I was a kid.

The most I've spent was $50 for a boxed 12" Speeder with Scout. I just made the purchase last week so I consider myself lucky to have gotten it.

It looks great next to my 12" Speeder with Luke ($19.90 on clearance @ Target.) Those two are my most cherished SW toys so far!!!

The most I ever spent was $120 on a vintage loose Has Solo in Carbonite. It is in more than absolute perfect condition. Not even a scratch. I have it in a neat dispay case.

Spent $150 on my Boba Fett tattoo.
Does that count as an item? It is my own personal item!!

Most spent: $95 on a loose POTF Han in Carbonite
Most cherished: probably my vintage Greedo (2nd figure I ever got. 1st [Jawa] got lost) or my snow hat with Ewok logo.
Best deal: $1 on a SW bedsheet at a garage sale where the sheet wasn't even a sale item, just underneath the things being sold!

$299 for USA FF Weequay on e-bay. :crazed:

Most spent: $225 for the Illusive Original Yoda from '95; which is probably my second most cherished.
Most cherished: Darth Vader statue (seen behind GL on the SE videos).

$800 for a Deluxe Don Post Darth Vader mask

$800 for a Deluxe Scout Trooper Mask + more for armor to go with it.

As far as toys go, $150 on a vintage AT AT (before the reissue).

mine is a little opposite here....I got the original marvel starwars comics 1 -107 (all of em) with 2's 3's and 4's of each + the original blue bordered complete card set with 2 complete sets of stickers and a film cell from the original film (before it went to theatres) and Mark Hamill's autograph. I got all this for 80 bucks from Pete Hamill, Mark's cousin. I used to live very near him and a good friend of mine worked with him and hooked us up. He was just excited to give this stuff to someone he knew would appreciate it and take extra special care of it! I feel very lucky and very blessed for that!

As for my favorite most cherished piece, I can't decide...probably all of my vintage stuff! and that mentioned above!

$160 an a complete set of 12" CANTINA MEMBERS.

$5.99 for a 1985 POTF DESERT SKIFF at PLAYWORLD. thats my most cherished piece!

marmit boba fett and sandtrooper,$89.00 each

don post classic action vader helmet, $130.00

unofficial luke ROTJ saber hilt,$125.00

Millennium Falcon - $75

This was just after the new figures came out in 95'.
I had always wanted one when I was a kid but my parents always told me it was too expensive.
Now it has a true place of prominance in my collection room with a vintage ESB Han Solo and Chewie in the cockpit.

Almost spent $5,000 for the Darth Vader lifesize statue at FAO. Or the $2,500 Han in Carbonite Block. Not! :D

Didn't buy either but always have fond memories of the two bucks that I spent in TRU for the vintage Imperial Shuttle and AT-AT (a buck each) way back then. :cool:

good question..should be most spend for the best value...like 175.00 for a Jedi speeder Pedal bike , 100.00 early bird set , and 40.00 for a vintage SW bike..12" kids and for other items that where not good value,,hummm...150.00 sears cantina boxed, and 75.00 cloud city boxed...and lord the protos...

anything anyone bought from Ep1 was worth less than they paid anytime...junk.

04-14-2002, 06:04 AM
Well what can I say - OUCH, I payed 120 for the POTF2 12" Speeder Bike & Scout.

I had to buy it, as it's such a cracking piece. Well sculpted etc. The best 12" to date.

Just goes to show how the UK gets ripped off on prices.
