How Much Would it Cost? – Jabba’s Palace – Leia’s Capture

Being avid toy collectors, we tend to collect everyone and everything from our favorite toy line. One of the biggest and most comprehensive is Hasbro’s Star Wars line. The line, including the original Kenner figures, literally (well almost as we discovered) includes every character from the original trilogy. This expansive and ever-growing line of toys enables collector and scene builders to create, practically, any moment from a film. With that being said, what would it cost to create one scene? The late Head Junkie in Charge (HJIC), Jarrett Kruse, once proposed to me, "take one scene from Star Wars and figure out what it would cost to recreate it". Since I have have bought Star Wars figures for nearly 40 years, I have to say this sounds like fun. If anything it may also be an eye opener to how much money I have spent or the value of my collection.
