We almost blew milk out our noses when we saw the below linked auction, and we weren't even drinking milk! What is so great about it is the creative way the owner of this Big Millennium Falcon dealt with the missing sensor dish. If Lando was smart, he'd have done the same thing before Han Solo had a chance to see the damage he did before blowing up the Death Star.

Rebelscum reader Tim C. wrote in that he found the JAKKS Pacific 18-inch four pack at his local Toys "R" Us in Jackson Michigan. The set includes Darth Vader, Tusken Raider, Luke Skywalker, and Stormtrooper figures in an open-face box. This set is being offered for $79.99 which makes it a viable option for parents and collectors looking for something 1/4 scale at an affordable price. Click the thumbnail above to have a look!

Honestly, how in the world can anyone expect an assembly error on a really bad 12-inch action figure from a collection that isn't sought after would be worth a premium? We truly don't know, but considering the lack of a make an offer option and nothing to really warrant TRA attention, this one leaves us scratching our heads. Follow the link above to check it out and let us know what you think.

Its safe to assume that everyone knows about the classic Kenner collection that was produced from 1978 until 1985, but not as well-known are the International companies that offered their regions the Star Wars figures being produced in the U.S. Back in the day, the International figures produced by other companies were mostly underrated and went for a song, but as vintage collectors became more aware of what was truly rare, the prices began to rise and rightfully so since all International toys were produced in far fewer numbers. It isn't often that an International figure shows up with a low starting bid. Follow this link to check out the very cool Italy-produced Harbert Walrus Man!

As the classic Kenner collection was winding down, just before the original Star Wars Generation was about to enter the dark time, the Ohio toymakers tried valiantly to keep the Force in the toy aisle. The final wave of figures, the legendary The Power Of The Force collection featured silver collectors coins making even the repacks more desirable. While developing the pack-in premium, Kenner looked at many different finishes including bronze (which ultimately was used on the Droids and Ewoks lines). Follow this link to have a closer look at the very nice collection of ten of The Power of The Force Bronze Prototype Coin First Shot coins.
