This is how much a real life X-Wing will cost you

One previous owner, regular service from certified Alliance engineers, 1.5 million miles on the clock - yours for just $160,000 (£122,000).

That's how much a genuine X-Wing just sold for at an auction of film memorabilia by Profiles in History. The new owner isn't going to be setting it up on his front lawn though - the pricely piece measures only 22-by-18 inches.

The miniature, formed in exacting detail from resin, polystyrene and brass, was built for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope back in 1977, and comes directly from the personal collection of Grant McCune - the film's chief model maker.

This X-Wing didn't appear in the film, as such, but is rather a collection of bits of X-Wing models that were blown up during filming for the assault on the Death Star sequences. 

Yes, that's a lot of money for a small plastic model. But admit it - you're jealous it isn't sitting on your coffee table, aren't you?
