Saw this link over at rebelscum. Sucks to lose or drop a Vader bank you think is worth $30k!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAR-WARS-Vintage-1977-Roman-Ceramics-Darth-Vader-coin-Bank-6-5-tall-/131155897663?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e89802d3f&nma=true&si=CxQdKG4gyS0CoM6L3%252B3mEapvRs4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

That this seller thinks  a similar, more modestly priced bank up for sale has been "tarnished" by David Prowse's signature is hilarious...

You mean the asking price for the 35mm trailer film, yes? It's the old "Star Wars greed". I heard from a wise old seller on eBay that such greed meets only deafening silence. 'Tis better to auction the things and receive whatever may come of it.

WTF

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

There has been more than one chess set made over the years, so I think it's probably licensed.

This guy has an interesting approach to selling his paintings:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MID-CENTURY-DARTH-VADER-STAR-WARS-ABSTRACT-FIGURE-PAINTING-BY-TOMMERVIK-/201273622053

If you search by price descending (Star Wars), he'll always come up at the top.  Notice that he has a Best Offer button, and look at his auction history.  He sells these million dollar paintings for $100 to $500 a pop.  Something about perceived value I guess.

I think that is a more modest price than the one the now defunct Icons company made in the 90's. And certainly cheaper than winning a real ILM miniature if one ever came up for auction.

 I have to say, comparing the pictures here to the ones in the Lucasfilm Archives book, this model may actually have cleaner details than the original:

 Mmmm, delicious, 30 year old plaster!  Although it is awesome that her Dad made them for her.  I would keep them.
