Tucson, wretched hive of scum and villany
I was wondering how to start a new post along these lines? I'm new in the forums and can't figure it out. (I'm looking for reference images of original Y-wing Models and ROTJ Y-wing pilot costumes/helmets).

Any help would be appreciated- Thanks

If you go to my site and the Ep VI section i have an original production-made ROTJ Y-Wing fighter there.It is not completely finished but is a lovely piece.I am not sure but I think it is the only model of this scale of this fighter in a private collection.

Well colour me a very happy camper today.I got what I am fairly confident is my first screenmatched SW piece!This is the arm of the FX-6 medical droid that attaches Vader's right leg in the first scene of the Vader construction in ROTS.I am getting an HD screencap to get some better detail but the FX droid only had one arm with a claw,the rest were all horrible pointy things and syringes,and the elbow joint is in the right position and the length and size of the piece is also spot on.Needless to say this is a total thrill for me being such a huge Vader nut and a huge fan of ROTS also.Hope you like the pics guys!

No Star Wars pieces but I have a few from other movies. I have some money from Serenity, a detonator from Die Hard, a press badge from X-men 3, a UV bullet clip from Underworld: Evolution, a single UV bullet from the same movie and I have a piece of the stargate iris from Stargate SG-1.

Some full scale pieces were built including the full scale FX-6 medical droid and the operating table.
Yeah the table apperntly even had some detail on the backside that was never seen on film. They had the table on a rolling base behind a velvet rope with a security guard standing next to it the whole time at C4.

The table is actually an awesome piece of work with amazing detail.A small selection of full scale pieces were made for this scene for close-ups with Hayden on the table such as when the dome is lowered.It is a super piece and certainly one of the favourites in my collection.I have it in a real nice glass shadowbox now with some pics and a cool plaque and it look kick-[censored] on the wall!

Although I recently became am active participant in the prop collecting online community, my prop collection is currently limited to a single piece. It's a small 3" x 3" Death Star surface piece, which I acquired back in 1999:





At some point in the near future, I think I'm going to have a frame made by The Propstore of London in order to provide a better, more visually pleasing means of display for it.

Hello Mike. Love this surface piece. Do you still have it and did you get it framed? I'm new to the forums and this piece is the reason I joined (only to discover how awesome this group is). Did you find it in any screen shots? I know I'm asking a lot of questions but i have a surface piece very close to this one with some information you may be interested in.

Welcome to the forums! I do still have it in my collection, but still haven't framed it. I can't say I've ever hunted for it in screen shots. Curious what the info you mentioned is.

Ok Mike, here goes:

So, my piece was a gifted to me back in 1993. I too kept it secure and did not display until last week.

My piece was connected to and sat directly next to yours (the two pieces had a specific mold that flowed from one to the other) I was a SDCC 2018 and was informed that it was part of a Set 3.

I have photos from 2 separate auctions (1 was a 20" x 48" surface piece and the other a 6" x 12" piece) and our pieces are there, clear as day.

You can see our surface molds (although there were many) in the scene where Red Leader crashes onto the surface.

I'm really glad to hear you still have it. I came pretty close to parting with mine 6 months ago, but had a change of heart.

It's an ESB blaster and I'm wondering if it is a Sterling conversion or resin, and which parts are screen used and which are not ;)

Hi, this is my first post, thanks for the validation!
I'm starting a prop collection, so far I have got several pieces screen used (let me know if I can't post the links, but it's easier):
- https://propstore.com/product/star-wars-ep-iv-a-new-hope/chewbacca-fur-display/ (screen used! got the info from the person who gathered them in facebook).
- https://propstore.com/product/star-...display-teebo-reaches/?coaNumber=COA-1AF3C0FE
- https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Star-Wars-Return-Of-The-Jedi-Screen-Used-Prop-Metal-Death-Star-Sections-W-COA/174258324882?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
I'm thrilled! I got the star wars prop collecting virus now... hard to stop buying :(

Nice pieces! So the Chewbacca fur pieces are indeed screen used? I was just curious about the fur pieces they have such as the Wampa fur, Ewok fur, etc. are actually used on screen or just extra materials Freeborn gathered. I would imagine the costumes used would still be in one piece? Anyway they are cool regardless.

Hi, I found recently (trying to authenticate my teeboo fur that don't match the color of screen: from black and white to brown and blond) a letter from stuart freeborn stating that he kept screen used fur : https://www.liveauctioneers.com/ite...noN5q_vTUy1zLaNXS5k9NFfRhpQmKnng68rL7RrWY0vl0
I had the history of the chewbacca hair from the person who gathered them from stuart freeborn and they are indeed screen used from his description (used and reused ;) ) : https://www.facebook.com/groups/movieprops/permalink/3406500179389887/?comment_id=3406664526040119

In the meantime, my collection has been extended... a lot! I got a wood piece of the jabba's sail barge and an other sarlacc piece, a section of the death star 2 panel (when inside the death star), fur from wicket and logray, a segment of the krayt dragon, 12 decals from the production of the prelogy (BTW it's a great bargain, from the seller these are originals from the production of the prelogy, but as they are not certified, they are 20 times cheaper than certified ones! https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Star-Wars-Prequel-Trilogy-acetate-prop-cinema-lighting-Pod-panel-FREE-UK-P-P/372654120553?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&var=641431197365&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 ), a stormtrooper helmet with more than 30 signatures(C3-po, chewbacca, darth vador, wicket,...). Well I'm addicted !! HELP ;)
