LukeSkywalker posted this in the memorabilia section, but I thought it deserved more exposure.

That is definitely some cool swag. I like the one picture of the lifesize stuff that shows the view from out the window. Can you imagine being in one of those other buildings pulling a "Rear Window" and seeing all these lifesize characters in the window? I would be at a loss for words.

I think the view from the window is stunning in itself

Anyone else think those are some crazy prices, especially on the individual Darth Vader pieces?

But hey, I just like the movies and the last SW item I bought was an action figure in 1985.

This is the coolest room I have seen in my life! Does Luke live in that building or is it like a workplace? Damn! What a view!

sad thing is that each and everyone of those pieces added a little gurth to GL wallet... Makes me sad...

Eh, rather the toys than each revisionist version of the OT IMHO.

KL is a great guy!! I've gotten lots of good advice from him while putting together my lifesize SW collection especially my Vader. He always told me that if I was ever in Hong Kong to let him know ahead of time and I could drop by his place. Its too bad he decided to get out of SW prop/lifesize collecting, it is a VERY expensive hobby. I was lucky enogh to be able to buy a few great pieces from him when they were up for sale. Most of the lifesize stuff with the exception of the Ep.II yoda is completely fan built. By fan built I mean cast off a licenced replica and then tweaked a bit to make it more accurate. Like his stormtrooper for example the helmet is said by many a reliable source to be cast off a screen used piece. KL is a stickler for detail as am I, and most of the officially licensed helmets are way off from the originals, due to the many copies that have come out of the molds, so thats were the unofficial underground market comes from. Sorry for my rant guys, its just really cool to see my two hobbies, DVDs and SW/Movie prop replicas cross paths!!! Take care all

Yes, it is so impressive I called my whole family over to my room to look at the website. From what he was writing, it seemed as though he had planned on collecting Ep III material as well. What made him decide to sell it all?? Was it George Lucas' selfishness expressed in his latest interview or his decision not release the O-OT on dvd?
