In 1985 while Kenner and its global partners were wrapping up the Star Wars collection, Brazil's Glasslite gave the toys one last kick at the can. While Vlix, which only saw production in Brazil, tends to steal the spotlight, the line's short production run also included unique versions of of the Droids C-3PO, R2-D2, Thall Joben, Kez Iban, Jord Dusat, and Kea Moll and The Power Of The Force C-3PO, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and (the line's only renamed figure) the Guerrero Imperial AKA Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear). The last three of these figures listed are currently on eBay. You don't see these too often, so follow the link above to check them out while you still can!

Studios, the commissioned creators of some of the cool Sideshow Collectibles 1:1 scale busts, has listed a pre-order of sorts for what is essentially a one of a kind bust based on Luke Skywalker in his Hoth gear. The images shown in the auction illustrate how insanely life-like this piece is.

The Turkish Uzay are amongst the most sought after of all the classic Kenner era Star Wars bootlegs. This exact same Uzay MTV-7 Mini-Rig was featured in a previous edition of eT published over a year ago and it didn't come close to selling, but now that the seller has relisted it for $3,000 less we're curious if the price is right for one bootleg collector. Only time will tell but in the interest of value, we're keenly interested in seeing what happens. As stated previously, this and the MLC-3 were the only Mini-Rigs produced in this collection.

Something very cool has found its way to eBay. Follow this link to check out the listing for Miki Herman's original working script for The Empire Strikes Back. The auction has many great images and a decent write up that will give you some accurate insider information on film production. If you look at only one Star Wars collectible you can't afford to own today, this one is the one to see!

In 2005, Converse released four Star Wars influenced products exclusively in Japan. The collection featured Stormtrooper flip flops and three pairs of Chuck Taylor high tops including the fairly decent white leather sneaks with a single Star Wars logo on the tongue and the two black pairs that featured embroidered multicolour Rebel and Imperial logos all over the sneaks. Even though the black ones were released with both bright and subdued logos, the released shoes looked terrible. Despite their limited nature, the last pair to go up on ebay ended without a single person touching the $850.00 starting bid, so why would a seller with zero feedback think $7,000.00 starting bid was a good idea? Have a look and then let us know what you think.
