Star Wars eBay auction for Rancho Obi-Wan
If you were a child at some point in the last 35 years, you probably owned some Star Wars toys. Maybe you had Han Solo in his Bespin outfit (love that blue jacket!) Maybe you had the Jabba the Hutt action figure with essential accessories like Salacious B. Crumb and his bespoke space-opium pipe. Or maybe you owned the General Grievous Bobblehead, you poor kid. Regardless of your era, you’ll definitely find something to like in an eBay auction launching today for the nonprofit Rancho Obi-Wan, the home to the world’s largest private collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Fon Davis, ILM model maker, has collected 1,950 Star Wars action figures — roughly 85% of all the official action figures ever created for the franchise — and he’s donated that collection to Rancho Obi-Wan. The figures are currently on sale, and even if you don’t want to foot the bill for the whole collection, it’s just fun to click around and see who’s there. Look, Nien Nunb!
