Irrespective whether you currently own it, or you never have and/or you have little, or no chance to for whatever reason (like it’s no longer produced for example), what’s currently your favorite ever Star Wars collectable and please say why for anything named. If you have a top 3, 5, or top 10, that’s fine.

my Power Of The Force 1997 AT-AT walker . My ex wife won it for me in a bidding war on Ebay for our first wedding anniversary . It was my most wanted toy as a kid …the original Kenner AT-AT that is . I have wanted one since 1980 …this one is close to that with more bells and wistles , but I believe made from the same mold . She got it for 80 bucks in 2004 . Has very sentimental value to me and I will never willingly part with it .

Mmm, picking just one is difficult. I’d say if I had to sell off my collection I know the last thing that I’d part with, so I guess it would be my favorite.

The eFx PCR Darth Vader helmet. There are higher quality (and much higher priced) Vader helmets out there, but for the money this thing is spectacular. It’s a replica of the original 1977 helmet and it has a well documented lineage that traces directly back to that original screen-used helmet. Basically, some time after filming Rick Baker cast a mold of the actual screen used helmet (probably in 1978) and that mold was digitally scanned and used as the basis for this prop replica.

Other runners up would be my Hot Toys ESB Darth Vader 1/6 figure, my Mafex Boba Fett figures (both ESB and ROTJ versions), and, of all things, my micro machine collection. I always loved Star Wars micro machines and when they started producing them again when TFA came out, I dove in hard. I was quite disappointed when they canned the line again after R1 but I’m glad we got what we did.
