STAR WARS: ICONIC PROPS GO UP FOR AUCTION

There's an upcoming auction for iconic Star Wars props the public can get their hands on, and it's not even that far, far away...

That said, anyone who wishes to bid on one of the many pieces of classic Star Wars pieces will have to have a sizeable bank account, with the auction expected to raise millions on 9 November.

Prop Store's Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will be putting over 120 items from the sci-fi fantasy movies, including Darth Vader's costume which is expected to fetch an eye-watering $13,740-$20,610.

Other pieces of pop culture memorabilia includes Darth Maul's dual-bladed lightsaber from The Phantom Menace, which is valued at anything from $55,000 - $82,500, C-3PO's hand featured in The Empire Strikes Back, thought to get between $20,610-$27,480, a Return of the Jedi Stormtrooper helmet valued at an incredible $137,400-$206,100, with an ILM X-Wing miniature from the same movie for an unreal $274,800-$412,200.

"We're thrilled to be back with another amazing collection of Star Wars treasures," Stephen Lane, CEO of Prop Store, said in a statement. "Fans will have the opportunity to get their hands on some truly iconic pieces from the Star Wars universe, spanning from A New Hope to The Last Jedi. These incredible lots will be sold together with over 1,000 props and costumes at Prop Store's Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction."

The full collection is worth an estimated $7.6 million, and ranges from a number of other films in the franchise, including standalone spinoff Rogue One, as well as Solo: A Star Wars Story. 

In 2020, the same company auctioned off a host of movie and television items, including a Darth Vader costume for nearly $300,000, in an event that collectively took $6,2 million - including bits from classic franchises like Back to the Future, Star Trek, and Batman.
