Really Expensive Star Wars Stuff

I thought Lord of the Rings fans were crazy, but then I did some digging and discovered LOTR ain’t got nothing on Star Wars when it comes to spending money on really cool expensive stuff. Well, a womp rat could’ve figured that out, but nonetheless, here are some of the most expensive but cool things I found, excluding original toys still in their original packaging.

Jabba the Hut by Sideshow Collectibles
091506jabba021 560x420

Jabba the Hutt fans have a choice to make. They can go with the above statue (about $120), throne environment (several hundred more), and creature pack (with Jabba’s famous lizard monkey) (about $35), all made by Sideshow Collectibles and SOLD SEPARATELY. Also available are other characters seen in the mix, like Bib Fortuna ($54.99), Leia as Boushh ($59.99), and a secondary creature pack for about $32. OR, you can get this:

Gentle Giant Jabba Statue

productdetail3This one costs about $200, and includes that green dancer chick and a Jawa, but to me, doesn’t look as good. However, Gentle Giant does have this:

Jabba’s Band

productdetail1 286x300

…which Sideshow Collectibles doesn’t have, so if you go with the first version of Jabba that I suggest, and you want to fill in the blanks with the Gentle Giant band, go for it.

There are a couple of other versions of Jabba the Hutt out there, such as the one from Attakus and a 30-inch version made by Mario Chiodo.

Han Solo in Carbonite
2177 press02 001 200x300

Not a big fan of this but have to mention it for the folks who want to get every character in that Jabba sequence. Costs about $200. Check out the Lego version of this.

Salacious B. Crumb Life Size Figure
brljufwbwkkgrhgoh dmejlllvjjvbj8sv0kyug 1 300x207

At no point in Return of the Jedi do I remember this dude’s name being mentioned, and I was disappointed when I learned what it was. The little lizard monkey that hangs with Jabba the Hutt is named Salacious B. Crumb (ick). A life-size statue was originally $350 but he’s sold out and going for far higher on Ebay. I want this, but only if I can get it for cheap. I’ve seen this go as high as $629.

Gamorrean Guard Cold-Cast Statue

acc140lg 300x300This 15-inch Attakus statue is great. Price range: $385-$550. Ebay is your best bet.

Speeder Bike and Scout Trooper

7164 press01 001 300x200Screw the statue, I want the real thing. Of all the vehicles in Star Wars, the speeder bike in Return of the Jedi looks like the most fun. Costs about $800.

Luke & Yoda – Dagobah Training
7148 press02 001 200x300

There’s something creepy about this statue. I think it’s because it’s an 18-inch version of Luke and humans just aren’t as cool as creatures or robots.

Ambush on Hoth Statue

2220 press06 0011 300x200

Now this thing is friggin awesome. It’s got the Wampa, Tauntaun and Luke. It’s 18 inches high and costs about $300. This thing also happens to be available in Faux-Bronze for $349.99. Gentle Giant has another version of the Wampa for $230.00, but it looks downright silly.

Luke and Han on Tauntauns

413wcj98dhl ss500 300x30051c7tftswnl ss500 300x300

Finally, here’s something that Gentle Giant that made that’s cool. Sold separately, Tauntaun statues with Luke and Han.

Gentle Giant Rancor & Handler Statue

rancor 276x300
I’m a big fan of the Rancor and I want this. Costs about $295.

Yoda Life Size Replica

41wx2zdjtkl ss500 300x300This one is made by Rubies and it is a 1:1 replica, and it don’t get better than that. Well worth the $500 for the Jedi Master.

Princess Leia as Jabba’s Slave

productdetail2 276x300

I’d like to say “GOTTA GET THIS” but her face don’t look so hot. There’s also this version, from Kotobukiya.

6fa9 1 199x300

Yeah, me likey this one better.

Wicket W. Warrick Statue

414s3xrojhl ss500 300x300Unlike everyone else I know, I’m a big fan of the Ewoks, but there’s not really much out there for high-dollar collectors other than the Wicket W. Warrick statue, by Attakus (It’s sold out, so good luck finding one). And this dude only stands 8 inches tall. Where’s the 1:1 scale of this figure? Where are the life-size dolls? There’s a market for Ewok lovers… deliver the goods already!

Dejarik Holochess Set

41uwo8nbzrl sl500 aa280

This thing is kinda neat… wouldn’t buy it though, even though it’s relatively cheap.

IG-88 ArtFX Statue

41 cqnbtuml sl500 aa280

This dude is kind of neat. I had the original action figure and enjoyed it. This statue costs about $100 from Kotobukiya.

There are also a number of lightsabers and weapons available in the Star Wars universe. Be sure to check them out.

Masks are also a big thing in Star Wars. Once I bought a Don Post Darth Vader mask at Target, but it’s possibly the cheapest one out there and I only bring it out for Halloween to display by the door for the trick-or-treaters to see. Here are some cool, better quality ones that I found, made by Rubies:

Darth Vader

ru4191lg 300x300


ru65005lg 300x300


ru65008lg 300x300

Bobba Fett

41gt eokwl ss500 300x300

Again, there are MANY other masks out there, but I’d say these are the best quality.

Now, on to the busts. I hate busts because they are creepy. It’s like chopping someone’s head off and displaying it on your grand piano. But for Star Wars, I’ll list the ones that I found to be somewhat interesting, mainly because they are 1:1 scale, which is as good as it gets.

400001 press03 001 75x752911 press01 001 75x752916 press07 001 75x752909 press02 001 75x752955 press03 001 75x752945 press02 001 75x75

From top, left to right, Admiral Ackbar $500. Greedo $600, but that’s only good for target practice (haha). Bossk $529. Darth Maul $600. Palpatine $500. General Grievous $500.

Check out what else I found:

LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collection Series Darth Maul Bust

41rgzoxev8l ss500 300x300

Most of the stuff I’ve mentioned so far is relatively cheap. Let’s move on to the very high dollar stuff.

Millennium Falcon & Death Star Resin Set

acd104lg 300x300

I like this because it has the characters hanging around, but it costs about $3150.

Millennium Falcon Studio Scale Model

41ro69x2ll ss400 300x300

This one is from Master Replicas. Costs about $2300.

The most expensive item I can find is an $18000 bronze statue of Darth Vader, at 1:2 scale that weighs 150 pounds. Only 30 are being made. If you’re too cheap to buy that, then get the $5000 Vader bronze statue or Boba Fett for the same price (as if either of them deserve to be bronzed, those evil jerks).

Saving the best for last, as noted in a previous article, Sideshow Collectibles has 1:1 scale replicas of C-3PO and R2-D2 available. Buy R2-D2 for $5450 and C-3P0 for $5950.
