What up, what up my sexy little friends! Any of y’all like Star Wars or Darth Vader? How about a handful of free coins?? ;)
I’ve had this Darth Vader piggy bank sitting in the corner of my house for over two years now, and every time I see it I ask myself why the heck I’m still holding on to it. Even though it seems to be worth about $80 when I researched it online ;) Unfortunately, though, I’m neither a fan of Star Wars, nor the memories it brings back when I saved it from our old office amongst paycheck-gate. AKA the suing of my ex-employer. (Remember all that? Ugh…)
But my bad memories = your gain! This fine piece of ceramic goodness could be all yours, simply by taking a little guess. Not only will one of you win this Star Wars bank itself, but also all the money that’s contained inside of it. What do you think about that?!
The one who guesses the *closest* amount of money inside wins!
Here are a few hints to get you started:
- It’s kinda heavy
- It measures about 7 inches high, and 6 and 1/2 wide (including helmet)
- It’s not filled to the top, but it’s also not close to the bottom either.
Think you could do it? Leave your answer in the comments below. I’ll be announcing the winner sometime after midnight, this Saturday, December, 1st, and then I’ll mail the whole ugly thing right on over to ya. Replacing the change with bills instead to cut down on the weight and/or someone shaking it and figuring out what it is ;)
Okay are you ready? Guess away and get this thing away from me! Haha…
PS: You can see it from the picture above, but there’s a small chip where that white little tusk thing is supposed to be on the right side of the mask. Maybe you can’t notice it, though?
PPS: For all those who can’t wait, or want to buy a brand new one for yourself, you can also find them on eBay where they go anywhere from $40 to $125…

That bad boy would go right into my office!
Not sure what I would do with it!
$57.62! I might have to fight my husband over this little guy :)
$64.27! Apparently just the dollar amount is too short of a comment so I made it longer :)
$72.31 – This would be perfect for my husband’s office :)
$92.17 – Have no idea where I would put it….but I want it! Lol
My husband loves star wars and always talks about buying a darth vader mask… i think a piggy bank is better :)
$82.13. We love Star Wars and need this to go with the Storm Trooper bank my son has.
$56.45- would be a nice addition to my collection!
$68.79 This would look awesome in my office!

J – you are da MAN! Hope you had a great holiday. Me – I’m stuffed to the gills.
I’m guessin’ $48.48. If you’re like me – you throw most change into the bank, but keep the quarters for machines.
My guess $53.47
Okay, I’m not going to read the comments because it will sway my guess. I’m going for $20.35. I really, really hope I win because my boyfriend would DIE for that. Here’s hoping :)
