This piece is the production budget for ROTJ.

The following is the description of the item when it was for sale a few years back.

A binder containing the production budget from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Housed in a blue plastic three-ring binder, this binder consists of 140 mimeographed typescript pages of accounting information from the production. Each typed page outlines the production expenses across a grid with columns for account number (recipient), their rates, the amounts per location (Elstree Studios, ILM, etc.) and the total amounts at the far right. At the back of the binder is a single page memo outlining the computer key codes attributed to the film production accounts. The pages show minor wear due to production use and age; however the item remains in fine condition. Dimensions: 25 cm x 30 cm x 4 cm (10” x 11 ¾” x 1 ½”)

My favourite page being the wardrobe budget. IRG's instead of ERG's, Scooter Troopers, Pig Guard and only 3 of them.

Great piece of history with the binder, really not the sort of thing you see every day and it's a shame Kenner didn't keep the name Scooter Trooper :lol:

Thanks for sharing.

I think Laurence has just owned this thread :P


Don't encourage me. I had to show restraint yesterday and only put those items up.

I'm sure there will be far more jaw dropping items posted on here shortly.



Well you need to be encouraged!
Some outstanding items :shock: 8)
I'm amazed that costs list has seen the light of day. So were there only 3 Gamorrean Guards ever used?
I'm sure i remember seeing more in certain scenes?
So was the overall budget for ROTJ $26 million?

And Warwick Davis got a measly $100!
Not bad for skiving school though.
Wanting to buy:
Star Wars store displays
Battlestar Galactica
Buck Rogers
Clash of the Titans

wow, what a piece, id love to flip through that, I bet there must be all sorts of gems hidden in there, such as they had 10 imperial dignitary's, thank god we only got the one crap figure.

40 ewoks! bloody hell that's a lot of kids/ short people.
I prefer trading items to buying them, have a loose run, about half the ships/vehicles and all the mini-rigs, spent under £200 and have had a blast doing so. This hobby doesn't have to be about spending a mortgage deposit every month on one item

If this thread was on ebay it would be full of thousands of bullshit common items and modern stuff. :lol:

I’ve let most of my pre production stuff go over the last few years but still have my R5 proofs and cromalins. Most of the pieces are unique one of a kind but if I had to choose a piece that stands out... R5-D4 unproduced POTF proof card. It’s the only POTF proof card of any sort for this figure and not even a carded mock up exists.
