Prototype Stormtrooper Helmet up for sale in Sotheby's Star Wars-themed auction
There's plenty of concept art, toys and film posters, too
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is only a couple weeks away from hitting the big screen, which means there’s been a recent influx of Star Wars-related merchandise.
The prestigious auction house is hosting a ‘Star Wars Online’ event includes concept art, toys and prototypes all from the original trilogy.
The items date from 1976 to 1990 and include a Prototype Imperial Stormtrooper Helmet (1976) estimated to be worth up to £60,000, and a toy shop display from 1980 including a Millennium Falcon figure for £10,000.
The classic toys - which include figures of Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett - are all still in their original unopened packaging (of course).
The estimated prices for those range anywhere from £400 (which now seems like a bargain) to £3,600 for a set of four, which include Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Looking to pick up some early Christmas presents? The cheapest lot is an EMI Elstree Studios Christmas Card from 1980, featuring C-3PO and R2-D2 out doing their Christmas shopping, expected to fetch between £100 and £200.
You can place bids now until 13 December, just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will be in cinemas on 19 December.
If those prices are a galaxy far, far away from your bank balance, then this talking Chewbacca mask is for you:
