LOS ANGELES - Feb. 2, 2021 - PRLog -- A character named Yak Face, briefly seen in Return of the Jedi, is arguably one of the most expensive action figures amongst the vintage Star Wars series. A mint condition Blue Snaggletooth can cost you over $300 and the character wasn't even seen in any of the films. There's even the story of Willrow Hood: A background character in Empire Strikes Back who has not only taken on such popularity over the past decade, but the prop he held, (an ice cream maker) managed to become a center point for Season One of The Mandalorian. 5 out of the 6 original Star Wars Bounty Hunters from Empire Strikes back didn't even have lines, and they've gone on to become some of the most iconic characters in Star Wars history. In December of 2020, some of the fans had taken initiative and decided to create their own Fan Fiction Comic Book of Gekko. Pace will travel through the summer to visit close to 60 comic book shops throughout the country.

On July 26, 2020, Pace was given a key to the city in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Close to $25,000 was raised for local comic book shops along with $2,000 for Make-A-Wish, $1,000 for the Peter Mayhew Foundation as well as the AFLAC Cancer Research.

Be sure to follow Lair of the Gekko on Facebook for upcoming signings and appearances.
