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.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
