I've often pondered this question - would you swap your entire vintage collection for a certified screen used prop of equal or slightly higher value?

Maybe a cool little question to put on the main page?


Thankfully, I am not into props so that's an easy one for me. Somehow they dispel some of the magic as, once in hand, a lightsaber doesn't work and a blaster rifle doesn't fire laser bolts. hey just become worldly, prosaic objects out of context. Nicely crafted of course, but no- give me vintage toys any day!

Awesome find. I always love seeing props because they look so fake and cheap/tacky in the flesh.
