Mos Espa Pod Crate
These crates appear in a bunch of scenes in the Phantom Menace. You see them in the streets of Mos Espa around the fruit stands and next to the pod racers at the start of the race. The crate itself is heavy and huge (about the size of a small desk). I've spotted dozens of these crates in movie scenes, so this is one of the better prop pieces from the standpoint of visibility in the saga.

A shot of one of these crates appears in the Episode I Visual Dictionary (see image above).

Also, another one appears in this photo in the Vanity Fair story on the making of the Phantom Menace. If you keep your eye out for these crates during the Tatooine scenes, you can see quite a few of them. I brought back this crate from one of my journeys to Tunisia.
