This week’s featured item is the twelve inch Chewbacca in an extremely rare Empire Strikes Back box. Because this item's value primarily comes from its unusual packaging, you could almost throw the Chewbacca figure in the garbage and the box alone would retain the item's entire value!

 

 

It's unclear, even to collecting experts, whether this Chewbacca was ever commercially released, with many claiming that the only reason any haver appeared on the market is they slipped out  the back door of Kenner or were a toy salesperson’s sample. Regardless, this limited production makes this piece extremely tough to find.  

 
 

While the ESB box is not factory sealed, it did receive a grade of C-6 and includes the original cardboard inserts.  The item inside is complete and received the high grade of C-9 for condition. There were four other twelve inch figures that were packaged with the ESB logo box: Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and IG-88.  Like the Chewbacca, the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper were also released in very small numbers with the ESB logo. 

Next week I'll discuss the newest toys being released by Hasbro in connection with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Force Friday's toy revealing should bring out some must-have items for collectors! Visit brianstoys.com on September 30th at midnight to be one of the first to purchase the new Rogue One items.

This week’s featured item is the Die Cast Imperial Cruiser. This isn’t just your average Die Cast Imperial Cruiser; this particular piece has the special offers that make this Cruiser extremely unique. Given an overall grade of 75 by DCA (Die-Cast Authority), this cruiser shows minor signs of wear.

These 3 special offers are flashy and will help this Cruiser pop in your collection!

 

 

 

Special offers were put on various vintage Kenner items to appeal to department stores from 1978-82. All of the special offers were very limited in release. The special offer states “Complete with Outpost Command Battle Scene”. The fact that this Imperial Cruiser is still sealed with a special offer is astounding. How could you not open up this beauty and cruise it through the battle scene?

 
 

A quick search on eBay shows very few of these special offer vintage items on the market, making this a hot ticket item!

 

Next week I'll show you know about our twelve inch Chewbacca action figure in a rare Empire Strikes Back box.

This week’s featured item is the beautifully detailed Signature Edition Millennium Falcon from Master Replicas. We're very excited to have this extremely rare item in-stock! In fact, this is the first time we've ever had the signature edition of this Millennium Falcon.

 

 

 

 

I am always happy to get in Master Replica pieces because I think they are the best collectibles for display, provide an exact replica of the item seen in the movie, and are made of high quality resin.  Master Replica definitely has not disappointed in creating this stunning Millennium Falcon.  One thing to keep in mind is that this Millennium Falcon is HUGE, measuring 32” x 24” x 6”.  With only 500 individual pieces made, these items are difficult to get your hands on.  It's also known that Harrison Ford did not often sign autographs at Star Wars events, so his signature makes these pieces even more valuable to own!

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This piece does come with a universal AC power adapter (USA plug) that lights up the headlights, cockpit detail, and engine effect.   Click here for an in depth video review of the Master Replica SE Millennium Falcon.

 

Check back next week when I will let you know about our AFA graded Boxed Die Cast Imperial Cruiser With Special Offer Decal.

This week’s featured item is the rare Chewbacca plush hand puppet made by Regal Toys in 1978. We just got this item back from AFA and it received the stunning grade of AFA 80!

 

 

This Canadian made ‘big furry oaf’ is the first one that Brian’s Toys has ever had to pleasure of owning! Trust me; this is an item that will not come around often. If you are interested in unique Star Wars toys, this is a rare piece to own as there are not many known to have existed.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Global News, a media outlet in Canada, produced a news segment on this exact same hand puppet.

 

Check back next week when I will let you know about the Master Replica Millennium Falcon that is signed by Harrison Ford.
