One Of A Kind Star Wars Autograph Artifact Unearthed

eBay Treasures

MASTER REPLICAS STAR WARS & STAR TREK AUTOGRAPH BOOK **RARE 1 of 1 COLLECTIBLE**

From reader "William":

"HELLO!!

I enjoy all of your Star wars collector wish books. They are fantastic!

I just remembered a-one-of-a-kind Master Replicas item offered on Ebay a few months ago, and thought I should bring it to your attention for possible inclusion in a future edition of your books. The info is at the following link: ...

You may need to immediately print the ebay listing info as soon as possible. I believe the listing will be deleted later today and no longer archived by Ebay due to the 60 days elapsed since auction closing.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!! WILLIAM"

Well William, unfortunately the Wish Book doesn't document one of a kind items, but the website does! This piece certainly is worth documenting the bidding history for future reference. Thanks for the tip!

Female Stormtroopers - Licensed and For Real??

eBay Treasures
  Female Stormtroopers? What is Hasbro Up To Now?

Right now this is just a rumor. We're looking for either a confirmation or an explanation.

The 501st costuming group has some imaginative armor makers who produced some custom armor, designed to show off a woman's distinctive physique. In the canon universe, any female in armor was in a captured set, sculpted to fit every clone male - hence Leia infamous barb to Luke about being a non-standard size.

Today on eBay, we found a seller in Malaysia advertising this "STAR WARS TLC LEGACY FEMALE STORMTROOPER LOOSE FIGURE" sculpt as "100% NEW AND GENUINE PRODUCT BY HASBRO".

Kmart Exclusive Jodo Kast Action Figure

eBay Treasures
  If you live in an area where there are no Kmart stores, you might as well be living in Japan when it comes to this Jodo Kast action figure...

Jodo Kast is due to be released in the third quarter of 2010 -- which is July through September. At issue here is the lack of Kmart stores in many regions of the US, and the higher prices for which most collectibles go for when sold across eBay. Fortunately, if you act quickly, there may be an easy answer this puzzle. At the time of this writing, there are FOUR available, mint on card online.

Star Wars Gets Busted Up - Again.

eBay Treasures
  A New Series of Collectible Busts from Takara Tomy Arts.

In Japan they're called gashapons. A Gashapon is a series of blind packed toys that children (and collectors) can purchase one at a time and trade with other people. Usually the set includes one or more chase figures - special pieces that are only inserted into random boxes. This new series labeled as: Plaster Status Collection has five set pieces and one chase piece.

Recalled Minnie Mouse as Slave Leia

eBay Treasures
  Slave Leia Minnie Mouse Recalled For Offensive Language

If you approach any Star Wars collector and ask them about whether or not they own a slave Leia figure, they'll likely shrug their shoulders and give you a straight answer. Princess Leia as Jabba's Prisoner, usually just referred to as 'slave Leia' is a pretty commonplace reference.

Now take this years Star Tours figures which include Minnie Mouse in Leia's metal bikini (which seems odd enough) and slap the non-politically correct label on her, and instantly - it's a recall.

Yoda Illuminated Christmas Tree Topper

eBay Treasures
 

Very Difficult To Find, This Christmas Tree Topper

With the Star Wars Christmas decor starting to trickle out into stores, our thoughts go back to Christmas past when Christopher Radko and Hallmark started to give way to newer companies like Kurt S. Adler.

One of the first, and hardest find, pieces from Kurt S, Adler was this Yoda Illuminated Christmas tree topper. Personally, it took me three years to track mine down. Now there's one up on eBay for a very reasonable price!

Update: If you have followed the story link and the topper was already sold, we updated it to a seller who has a couple of them left. Check it out again.

While we're on our Star Wars kids kick, we're going to highlight this children's couch which can also be folded out into a small overnight bed.

Unlike the pop-up play tunnels from earlier this weekend, this lovely piece of Star Wars play furniture is from the United Kingdom so postage is going to be a little bit higher.

If You Missed This One At K-Mart...

eBay Treasures
K-Mart Exclusive Commerative Tins
The Cantina Band Members exclusive tin set at Walmart was closely watched as it's price dropped lower and lower on Clearance.

If you missed them at retail, it's really going to be costly to come up with them now -- especially if you shop on eBay.
