Yakkety Yak

Action figures are among the most sought after rarities in the Star Wars range. There have been several collections issued over the years and the original merchandise was produced by Kenner. Yak Face is certainly not as pretty as Princess Leia, but is a rare figure. This character appeared in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and the figure is part of the ‘Last 17’ issued in the vintage range. Star Wars was a bit out of fashion in the mid-1980s when it was released and the company stopped production shortly after. In mint condition this is a great find.

Chewbacca Packer

Nothing says Star Wars fan more than a full-sized Wookiee head backpack. Chewbacca (or ‘Chewie’ to his friends) is one of the most well-loved characters from the films. Han Solo’s co-pilot and faithful sidekick fought and wailed his way to victory with the rebel alliance through Episodes IV to VI in the original series. Fuzz up with this fun item and wear it with pride at a Star Wars event, comic convention or when queuing for Episode VII movie tickets before it hits the cinemas at the end of 2015.

Ewok This Way

Another furry find here in the form of Chewie’s smaller relatives, the Ewoks. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia encountered these cute but feisty fuzzy bear-like race on the forest moon of Endor as they planned to destroy the Death Star in Return of the Jed i. The action here is a card game, so it is a bit more sedate. Players have to match the same colour cards in a game a bit like Go Fish. One for the kids and the collectors.

Get your mitts on Jabba

Piece-A-Hutt

Out of all the villains in Star Wars there is one who stands out a mile. Jabba the Hutt was the very much larger than life gangster from Return of the Jedi who had Han Solo frozen in carbonite and displayed like an ornament. Released in 1983, and part of the vintage range, this cool playset includes Jabba, his throne, a smoking pipe and bowl and his sidekick, the gremlin lookalike Salacious Crumb. Still need a Jabba hit? Try looking for the comic mini-series with tales about his gangster antics.

Sega Wars

It may now be a defunct games console but as rarities go the Sega Master System Star Wars game makes the list. Players can pick up a console for peanuts these days. Grab a copy of Star Wars for the Mater System and pilot a landspeeder around Tatooine to rescue R2-D2 from the sandcrawler before embarking on a mission to destroy the Death Star. Good clean pixellated fun.

Dark Side Calling

Darth Vader may be one of the best movie villains ever created. Voiced by American actor James Earl Jones, Vader terrorised his way through the original trilogy as a light saber wielding monster whose dark powers saw off Obi-Wan Kenobi and threatened to crush the alliance. While a telephone does not hold the same menace, it is a cool must-have accessory for any devotee of Star Wars' menacingly-voiced villain. Just don’t start breathing heavy when making a phone call.

Luke Again

Vintage Luke Skywalker figures come in all sorts of different guises and variations – in snow gear from the planet Hoth or in Death Star escape mode with grapple and blaster – but among the rarest is a Mexican version from Lili Ledy, armed with a bespin blaster and light saber. Entitled ‘La Guerra de las Galaxias’, Mexican moviegoers lapped up the sci-fi series and mass imported Kenner action figures, now rebranded as Lili Ledy.

Snowspeeder

When the rebels made a desperate stand on the ice planet Hoth, there was only one way to defend against the Empire’s armoured AT-AT walkers – bring them down using teamwork and the Snowspeeder. Palitoy released this vintage Snowspeeder toy in 1980 with cannons, rear gun and harpoon, plus some on-board electronics for sound effects. Mint condition with all accessories are hard to find.

Death Star Escape

Star Wars board games include this neat ‘Escape from Death Star’ game released concurrently with the original film in 1977. Help Luke, Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca escape the trash compactor and make it safely off the Empire’s Death Star. Turn off the tractor beam, steal secret plans and encounter both light and dark forces on the way out. For an alternate spin, source the interactive video board game containing a VHS with gameplay footage.

Pop-up R2-D2

R2-D2 gave robots soul and proved that humble but brave characters can make all the difference in an epic fight. As one of the ‘Last 17’ figures released by Kenner, this version of the rebel hero droid had a pop-up light saber that rises and fall as the head is twisted. Rare, fun and good to look at, this R2 is a must for any serious Star Wars collection.
