As much as it pains us to admit, we aren't living in a word where research and facts have the weight they deserve, but we'll not stop beating the drum for confirmed facts. We've been around long enough to know that there are components of Star Wars collecting history that need to be on the tongues of collectors, including the Unproduced Alternate Bald Emperor Hard Copy Prototype currently being offered on eBay. Follow the link above to check it out, and by all means, do some digging to find out more!

A 1:1 scale Stormtrooper cutout standee claiming to be an authentic piece created by street artist Thierry Guetta, AKA Mr. Brainwash, has been listed on eBay. While we can't verify its authenticity, searching the gears that power the tubes has provided enough evidence to make us think it's the real deal, but found nothing to prove that this Stormtrooper design was used on the artist's Los Angeles studio as stated in the description. Have a look for yourself and let us know what you think. Update: Fellow collector Jason Z has provided some more information that you may want to click through to read.

It is a fact that Japanese toymakers Takara took it upon themselves to produce unique 3.75-inch action figures based on Darth Vader, See-Threepio (C-3PO), and Stormtrooper in their classic Kenner Star Wars line, but they also distributed common versions made in Hong Kong during their short run. Knowing that, there is no way we'd ever list a Takara figure based on these three characters without highly detailed images. Sadly, the seller that listed this auction didn't factor that in before listing. Follow this link to see if you can identify which version this is, then ask yourself; are these the only three Takara made their own versions of?

The first print in Mondo's incredibly popular Star Wars Portrait Series by Mike Mitchell is the thing of legends. The Koona T'Chuta, Solo? print featuring Greedo in all his glory had an edition size limited to only 60 copies. They don't show up often, and buyers are lucky to pay less than $1500 for a copy. The one featured in the thumbnail above is a signed artist proof of one of the most sought after prints. Follow this link to check it out!

If a seller couldn't sell a Rogue One Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu) on Darth Vader card over the course of five months, even with all the attention it received first here and then almost daily on social media, we can't figure out what would inspire another seller to try something almost as ridiculous. Seriously.

We're guessing not everyone listing stuff on eBay realizes they still have to pay listing fees when their auctions end unsold... Craw-Eh-Zhay.
