Reusable Return of the Jedi Stickers by Topps Canada These stickers date from 1997, around the release of George Lucas�s �Special Editions� of the Star Wars films. I know Topps also made an Empire Strikes Back version, since the seller I bought these from originally sent me those by mistake, and they probably made one for A New Hope as well. Since these are billed as reusable stickers, I was hoping that these would be made of vinyl or something similar. But I opened the Empire ones and they�re just regular stickers with less adhesive than usual, allowing you to remove them from the paper after you stick them on. There are a large number of Jabba-related characters here, including Jabba, Rancor, Salacious Crumb, Slave Leia, Slave Leia with Jedi Luke, Weequay, and Gamorrean Guard. They included a background image that you can put the stickers on, allowing you to create a scene similar to a Presto Magix set, but for some reason they went with an Endor setting, which only really makes sense with a handful of the stickers.
Found these for $1 each if you buy 5 or more. Pick up disney ones also.
Got my birthday card from the Mallory Ficklin , Ray Dubray and Nick Dubray thanks guys you guys are such great kids to have in my life. I love all Three of you.
Was given highest award from Home Depot
Rancho Obi-Wan, a Northern California non-profit museum, has officially been recognized by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS as housing the �Largest Collection of Star Wars Memorabilia� in the galaxy. In 1998 Sansweet purchased a former chicken ranch on the outskirts of Petaluma, California with a large-enough space to store the collection, and named his new home Rancho Obi-Wan. Today Rancho Obi-Wan is a 9,000 square-foot non-profit museum. Star Wars fans can experience the magic of Rancho Obi-Wan first-hand by scheduling a tour, personally guided by Sansweet.
