    its probably the only reason why i throw in the last jedi bluray...

    Bluray? so 32 minutes of ads, warnings and menus for a shot of a compass?!?

    Hardcore.


    For myself I wanted all the lightsabers (ANH ESB ROTJ TFA TLJ)

    Two helmets (Stormtrooper and Kylo - thought still no good kylo)

    Han in Carbonite (Have most of the parts... don't have the room anymore)

    Hans ANH blaster and an E11 (sooooon)

    And a full scale Gronk and R2 (no room anymore... but still have my Gonk figures collection and just picked up a tiny R2)


    Everything else is just bonus!

    But yeah, if you don't have Luke's ANH saber, seems blasphemous.

    He seems like an annoying party bro, but whatever floats your boat.

    My must haves would be a real Sterling Stormtrooper rifle - check
    ANH Han Solo Blaster
    Boba Fett blaster, real Webley
    All lightsabers, minus Sequel versions

    Everything else is a bonus. ( saw you said the same thing)

    I finally started working on my gonk again. Had to add a steel base plate to the body, as the last attempt to mount the legs managed to crack the bottom of the tote. So now he's much better, and so much more stable.

    Just need to paint him, finish the wiring, and plug him in.

    Though, he's not a screen accurate gonk, more like a slightly different model. But still obviously a gonk.

    I have an Anakin saber, just need to paint and weather that one, too. Eventually I'll get a real Graflex, and replace the 3d print one that I have.

    Wow... A typo I had to google... ďwho was Gronk?Ē

    Party bro seems correct. Iíll do a Gonk instead.

    For me, it's also R2-D2. I just want a display piece with some lights and sounds. RC controls would be cool but i know it would never leave my display room so it really would be a waste. My skill and patience level keeps DIY from being an option. And although, I have a lot of money in my current prop replica collection, I just can't get myself to pay the money it would be to buy a finished piece.

    Iíve collected a lot of Star Wars stuff. Force FX lightsabers, legacy collection falcon(still collecting all the parts and weathering) Sphero and hasbro interactive R2, Spinmaster BB8, all the Black Series helmets, ect. But I still need a han in carbonite, and a real broomhandle Mauser. My my grail piece will always be my real graflex flash. I bought it piece by piece and assembled it right before Force awakens came out and the prices went really stupid. So for $180 Iíve got a really awesome piece of movie/pop culture history.

    For OT-SW props I have only one Holly grail: The Vader Reveal mask from ROTJ.Nothing is so fascinating for me since I was a kid.
    For PT-SW props: The ROTS Vader Reveal mask.Also a piece of art in my eyes.
    For the ST-SW props: Darth Vaders melted helmet.

    But I also would like to have a TM ESB Vaderhelmet(or only the dome).And I love my CFO Vadercast..and my VP facemask.

    This is a tough one,as far as one prop from any movie Iíd say itís a tie between the second Death Star and the v2 lightsaber. The second Death Star is big,itís recognizable and was the final nail in the empires coffin.when they blew it up the rebels won the war. As for the v2 I think itís the perfect example of what I love about Star Wars props. It was in all three movies,it was only saber that did that.its started off as one prop(obi one stunt)then they added a few greeblies and recycled it for Rotj.to me thatís what Star Wars props are all about. They made the most outta tge little bit they had.

    Thats is exactly where I stand with complete custom fully installed graflex's and replica sabers. I can not do a DIY on them yet I feel a fully finished one is just priced for millionaires. Im dying for a custom ESB or ROTJ Luke.

    There are many SW props i want/have, mostly exclusive OT ones - but my "must have" are few and all from the first SW iīve ever seen in the cinema, as a child when ANH still was SW "only").

    Hans Blaster
    Lukes lightsaber
    Stormtrooper E-11

    Made from real parts (except the DL-44 is build on a MGC) these iconic 3 would also be the last parts in my collection that will ever be sold.

    So I snagged an original prop from Star Wars (a new hope) from evilBay today, at a stellar price. Got a Microflame model B torch for under $20 shipped. Woot! First screen accurate prop for my collection. Also got the Jakks Pacific 31" Darth Vader for under $30 shipped, and another Heiland flash handle (a 2 cell) with reflector to cobble together with my 3 cell handle for a better Vader clone saber. And finally, a 1977 vintage Kenner Darth Vader with cape (but missing light saber) for $11 shipped.
