If Force Friday merchandise wasnâ€™t quite enough to satiate your appetite forÂ Star WarsÂ memorabilia, a California-based auction house will make available some iconic costumes and miniatures used in the franchiseâ€™s filming.
Profiles in History has announced that itâ€™s auctioning more thanÂ 50 items, including many posters from producer Gary Kurtzâ€™s personal collection, but the most enticing items may be those used to actually create some of the most memorable moments in theÂ Star WarsÂ franchise. Among the items set to be auctioned off are a Blockade Runner miniature, the type of ship first glimpsed in the opening seconds ofÂ A New Hope,Â Leiaâ€™s slave costume from Return of the Jedi,Â and a Jabba the Hutt maquette.
The prequel trilogy isnâ€™t forgotten either, as items like a Naboo blaster fromÂ The Phantom MenaceÂ will also be up for auction. Profiles has a full catalogÂ of the items that will be auctioned off, from a prototype Darth Vader helmet to miniatures depicting the Death Star under construction, but be warnedâ€”it will take some deep pockets to enter the bidding race for the items, with some of the items starting at bids north of $100,000.Â
The auction, which includes other film memorabilia, will be held on Sept. 29, Sept. 30, and Oct. 1, with various items being put on the block each day. Check out all of the items that will be available and, if you decide to join the bidding, may the force be with you.
