Marc is one of our resident docents, and an expert on all things LEGO. Caleb owns the Brick Hutt in Rohnert Park. We will talk about the history and impact of LEGO on Star Wars collecting, view some MOCs (my own creations), and the rarer items from the vault.

Saturday, November 2nd, 4pm – Vintage Kenner with Dwayne Smith and Mark Huber
Dwayne is one of our resident docents, and an expert on vintage Kenner. Mark Huber is an expert on POTF coins. We will rummage behind the racks for vintage goodies from around the world including action figures, vehicles, and Micro Collection.

Saturday, November 9th, 4pm – Comic Books with Brian Christensen
Brian is owner of Brian’s Comics in Petaluma and was a nominee for the 2019 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award.  We will pull a load of significant comics from the secret stash for discussion.

Rancho Obi-Wan Gala Huge Success


With a record 205 attendees, Rancho Obi-Wan’s fundraising gala, celebrating 40 years of Star Wars collecting, was a huge success.

Rancho wants to thank all the attendees, volunteers, and absentee bidders who made the Gala an exciting event. In addition, we want to thank our gala sponsors including Entertainment Earth, Pop Minded by Hallmark, Sphero, Funko, Topps, Cartamundi and Kotobukiya. Kudos to donors who contributed everything from original art and prints for the silent and live auctions. Rousing entertainment was provided by DJ Elliot Hansen and MC Mark Daniel.

Celebrating 40 Years of Collecting at Gala 2017

Star Wars will live forever for the fan community through Rancho Obi-Wan.

    “For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic…” but how quickly things can change. Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the most revered Jedi in the order and notorious general in the Galactic Army of the Republic, fought alongside the legions of Clone Troopers until the Dark Times. Star Wars artists Chris Dee and Joe Hogan were thrilled to collaborate together to create this one-of-a-kind canvas print depicting the story of Obi-Wan’s rise and fall with the white-clad soldiers. From general, to fugitive, to unnoticed shadow, Old Ben’s tale may seem tragic, but there has always been a glimmer of hope if you look hard enough. Print measures 12”x24”.

    “Destiny” Obi-Wan Kenobi once said the Force is an “energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; binds the galaxy together.” Three women embraced their destiny and let the Force guide them. From Padawan to Jedi Knight, from Princess to General, and from Smuggler to Jedi in training. Star Wars artists Brian DeGuire and Kaela Croft were delighted to collaborate to bring a one-of-a-kind print to highlight these leading ladies. Printed on canvas measuring 16×24 inches.

    “You Fought in the Clone Wars?” For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic…” but how quickly things can change. Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the most revered Jedi in the order and notorious general in the Galactic Army of the Republic, fought alongside the legions of Clone Troopers until the Dark Times. Star Wars artists Chris Dee and Joe Hogan were thrilled to collaborate together to create this one-of-a-kind canvas print depicting the story of Obi-Wan’s rise and fall with the white-clad soldiers. From general, to fugitive, to unnoticed shadow, Old Ben’s tale may seem tragic, but there has always been a glimmer of hope if you look hard enough. Print measures 12×24 inches.

  • Rancho Obi-Wan Celebrates 5th Anniversary with Gala

    It’s been five years since Rancho Obi-Wan opened its doors to share the world’s largest Star Wars memorabilia collection with fellow fans. Our big fifth anniversary fundraiser, “The Gala Strikes Back,” will take place on Saturday, November 5th, 2016. You won’t want to miss it!

     

    Rancho is a 100% fan-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit and the all-important annual Gala is our most important fundraiser of the year—and a lot of fun to attend!

     

    Rancho Obi-Wan serves to inspire through the preservation and cultivation of the Star Wars legacy. Our goal is to create an all-encompassing Star Wars cultural center where you can experience every aspect of this nearly four decade-old phenomena through the most comprehensive repository of Star Wars memorabilia on the planet. Star Wars will live forever for the fan community through Rancho Obi-Wan. Here are some great ways to support Rancho’s fifth Anniversary.

     

     

    Attend “The Gala Strikes Back” on November 5th, 4-11pm at Rancho Obi-Wan in Petaluma, California.
    Explore all the shelves at Rancho at your leisure. Friendly volunteers can answer your questions. Dinner, drinks, dessert and a most impressive swag bag are included with each ticket. Opportunities all evening to add to your collection by participating in the live and silent auctions, balloon pop game, raffle and toy store. Attendance is strictly limited to 150 people! All attendees must be age 21 or over.

     

    $200 for current supporting members of Rancho Obi-Wan ($100 is tax deductible*, each member may add one additional guest ticket at the $200 price, all attendees must be age 21 or over.)
