Filoni's Hat Up for Auction

By: Lillian Skye

On March 2nd, Rancho Obi-Wan's fundraising auction, appropriately deemed an "Obi-Than," launched on Ebay. The funds gathered form the auction are used for insurance, building maintenance, and preserving the Ranch's Star Wars memorabilia. Art Nouveau, original movie posters, and Star Wars Kellogg's cereal from 1984 are a few of the rare pieces being auctioned. (If you're feeling generous, they accept donations here, too!)

Among classic movie posters and Japanese interactive toys is an even rarer item that Clone Wars fans will immediately recognize as Dave Filoni's hat. A quick google search will bring up an array of Filoni photos from conventions, screenings, and Disney events, yet Dave Filoni is rarely spotted without his trademark. 

In addition to Filoni's doodle and signature, Clone Wars actors Sam Witwer (Darth Maul), Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker) and Tom Kane (Yoda) have also signed the brim of the hat. With five days and two hours left in the auction, the hat is currently priced at $685.01.

Hat's off to the bidder who scores this iconic prize!
