[quote="AndyPreston"]Here’s my two truly rare items - an original script, and cast & crew Glory Book, from Star Wars.

5CFF60CB-8E45-4AB4-9A28-2248F53201FD.jpeg

The script is a hybrid between the 4th Draft (green pages) and the Revised 4th Draft (pink pages). The pink pages, which are the later version, go up to the scene where the Falcon leaves Tatooine. I’m guessing therefore that the script was produced for the Tunisia shoot, which was the first part of the movie to be filmed. The earlier 4th Draft has some notable differences from the filmed version, such as Ben surviving the Death Star and appearing in the rest of the movie.

The Glory Books are black and white photo albums that were produced in limited numbers as thank you gifts to key cast and crew members for their contributions to Star Wars. This copy is a photographers proof (there are reference numbers and notes on the reverse of some of the pages), and is lacking a dedication, but has the signatures of George Lucas and Gary Kurtz on the final page.

Very Nice, Vintage Signature of George's also :wink:

Have posted this before.

This is the Star Wars remedial multimedia kit produced by Pendulum Press. I'd only ever heard of the bigger red teacher's kit and not this blue version. Would love it if anybody has any info on it.

Some of the items you guys have are outstanding!

I particularly love the 12" '3PO with articulated joints and as for your bronze version, you just have to contact me if ever you part with that 8)

A bit kitsch but i also love stuff like that Pendulum poster that comes with the media kit x

Okay here's another piece i was lucky enough to acquire some time ago.
As far as I'm aware it's the only one in existence.

Paul, that's a great piece - never saw another Ackbar Mandarin flavour. What's the story? Is it a prototype?

That's correct Andy, it's a mock up from a Bridge Farm Dairy's ex employee.
They never released a Mandarin flavour.
The original artwork is handpainted onto a thicker card around the pot and the foil is sealed on, sans yoghurt :P
A truly unique piece.

That is a fantastic piece, congratulations. I’ve never seen anything pre-production for any of the U.K. food lines.

I'd missed this thread first time round but had a look thanks to the podcast. There are some amazing items on here, does Laurence own anything not rare :o

Vinny's C3PO can holder is my favourite piece, quite bizarre - definitely worth bumping the thread for that and all the other stuff. I'm also amazed by only 3 GG cosutmes

My rarest item is probably this transparency for the Han Hoth image on the back of the 41 cards, with 76% sizing information for the printers. Cost a lot more than that beautiful ATST transparency - that was an amazing steal!

this is a fantastic thread,going to trawl through the lot later when I get a moment, got this little offering, just had it cased to try & protect it & even UKG said they had never seen another, I suspect it came with the dengar as thats the only mailer figure I got as a kid & this is one of only 2 remaining childhood pieces for me, so holds a very special place in my heart.

It was almost thrown out a few years back in a house move,was just about the burn the box off & though I better just check under the bottom flaps & this floated out, lucky escape that was.

Anyone else got one or even seen another?? Jason (Mr Palitoy) maybe??

Yeah, but this one is even cooler as it's a colour transparency.
Great item, like the additional sizing information on it, which shows what part this is in the process.
I also used a similar kind of frame to display my transparency. Displays great I think.
