There were three Star Wars banks produced in 1977 from Roman Ceramics. The short-lived collection included the Darth Vader head, the C-3PO bust, and the R2-D2 full-figure banks. Each came in a simple white cardboard box. All said, they are pretty dang cool and whether you have the full set or just one piece, they stand out as statement pieces in a collection. That being what it is, there is no way in the world one of them without it's box is worth even a fraction of the Buy-It-Now price of this listing. If you are looking to add this sort of item to your collection, dig around a little and you'll them for a song.
