You might think that after three video features, we might have exhausted the awesomeness we uncovered at the altar of Star Wars fan worship, Rancho Obi-Wan.

Wrong, you would be.

Yes, we've shown you the rarest action figures in the galaxy, Bib Fortuna toothpaste and actual screen-used Jedi ashes, along with countless other valuable treasures, incredible oddities and even some beloved bootlegs. But what you haven't had the chance to see yet is the more eccentric wing of the non-profit museum. Steve Sansweet, Rancho Obi-Wan's president and the man responsible for this Scrooge McDuck-like gathering of galactic goodies, opened the blast doors for SYFY WIRE into one of the more entertaining sections of the collection.

We're talking rare international examples of a Darth Vader collectible that reimagines the Sith Lord as a samurai, perhaps the lone remaining example of an Empire Strikes Back poster created for a screening in Norway, a ski suit worn by the film crew on Empire for the Hoth battle scenes that Sansweet may or may not have traded away internal organs for, and even a collection of custom stormtrooper helmets that helped out the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Enjoy the video below, and let us know in the comments which piece you saw would be worth giving up a kidney for!
