“Star Wars” collectors are always looking for items not available to the mass market.

Those with tons of money to spend will buy original props or costumes. With the release of “Star Wars: Episode VII” looming closer and closer, a lot more collectibles are popping up in auctions and online.

If you don’t have a lot to spend, there are collectible items that are more affordable. If you can find any material sent to journalists, those are good items to grab.

You know they were only sent out to the media. Many were destroyed by writers who used the material but didn’t want to keep the pres items.

This is the press kit sent out for the animated series “The Clone Wars” on the Cartoon Network. Not only does it contain information about the series but also comes with a lightsaber.
