We're not suggesting anyone reading this would be interested in owning a massive almost 1:1 scale Jabba the Hutt puppet, but we're pretty sure following the link above and checking out the full gallery and video attached will make your week way more epic than it would otherwise be, and we have a deep well of sorrow for those that choose not to take our advise on this one.

While we now look back at the LEGO Star Wars line and consider its success to be a no brainer, back in 1999 when LEGO launched it they didn't know if it was a winning gamble, or if the expense of the license and developing the initial range would further mire them in debt. Jump through to learn about one of the more inventive approaches LEGO undertook to promote the new licensed line - and your chance to own a set of these rare collectables.

As a special thank you to everyone working long hours to successfully roll out The Force Awakens line in time for the first Force Friday event, Hasbro gifted the Star Wars team a very cool thank you set that featured a prototype of episode 7 6-inch Chewbacca. The numbered set was limited to only 400 pieces. We don't think its worth more than a fifth of the starting bid, but you should have a look while its around!

Honestly, Double Ewe Tee Eff. If there is absolutely only one ridiculous link you follow through today, the one above has to be it. We highly recommend swallowing all soda and / or milk before clicking the link above, lest it comes out your nose...

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.
