Ralph McQuarrie's art appeared on numerous Topps trading cards, and I always loved seeing his concept art. This book was a Japanese edition collecting much of that art, and came with a little translation companion booklet.
Every year, my parents buy me a Hallmark Christmas ornament, and I usually pick out the Star Wars one. This one talks, but never makes it onto the tree. Somewhere in a box of Christmas decorations I've got a light-up Death Star.

We used these at my home for years, and when I moved out I think my mom got rid of them. Then a friend got me the lightsaber battle one as a Christmas present.

I bought the Ewok glass later and immediately found out that these may not actually be safe for drinking.
