MJ's Doc Arnie Klein

Kisses Jabba the Hutt Goodbye

With Weird Crap Auction

Michael Jackson fans and "Star Wars" geeks brace yourselves -- MJ's former doc, Arnie Klein, is unloading a bunch of his old crap ... including Jabba the Hutt and a ton of other memorabilia from the movie.

It's all part of an estate sale being held next month -- starting Nov. 13 -- where things like a production-used Jabba prototype, a Princess Leia figurine, lightsabers and a treasure trove of action figures will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Klein is also ditching an extensive collection of Michael Jackson lithographs (many autographed by MJ), Disney memorabilia, and an insane amount of pricey paintings.

Kinda fitting ... Klein, famed dermatologist to stars like Liz Taylor and Michael, clearly has his own eccentricities -- hoarding 'Star Wars' DVDs and toy stormtroopers right next to Rembrandts and Rodins.

As you may recall, Klein had been stashing over 100 pieces of wildly expensive art instead of turning them over to his bankruptcy trustee ... but after cops showed up to his home with an arrest warrant, he folded.

It's unclear whether or not this auction is being used to finally pay off all his debt ... but it looks that way. We reached out to Klein, but he hasn't responded.

This guy is one strange looking dude. Bears a striking resemblance to someone else associated with MJ, I think. Regardless, he owes lots of people money so I hope his stash sells for big bucks.

Another leech greedy quack who is trying to exploit Michael Jackson's name to make money!!! Not to mention about the disgusting lies he spread through the media to get money!!! He should rot in jail for giving Michael Jackson demerol which can cause insomnia as a side effect, but for the love of the money he did not say it to Michael!!!! He is not better than murderer, both do anything for money, both should rot in jail for life before rotting in hell where they belong!!!!

I wouldn't want any of that Star Wars junk even if he paid me to take it but he should fetch a pretty-penny for it. ...I just don't understand the hording art thing; that stuff belongs in a museum. Hanging a copy on your wall is just fine; who the heck will know anyways.

NOBODY exploited Michael Jackson. Michael got drugs in exchange for whatever the other person got.

I see a strong resemblance between Jabba and Arnie.

Michael Jackson surrounded himself with some very strange, creepy people. I guess it makes sense because MJ was a strange and creepy person. For someone who had all that worldwide fame and love from his fans and money to buy whatever his heart desired, MJ's life was pathetic. Much of that was MJ's own fault, like the drug abuse and the molestation of young boys. John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer who molested teenage boys then killed them, dressed up like a clown to entertain kids at birthday parties. Michael Jackson reminded me of that scary, creepy clown with his bone white face and red lips. Too scary.

On the "Meet the Parents" itinerary, any one else notice the Rehearsal Dinner and the "Surf n' Turd"???? Now I'm going to have to cue up the movie and check it out.
