ICONIC STAR WARS PROPS TO BE SOLD IN UK AUCTIONIt seems it's a weekly occurrence these days to see movie props going under the hammer and especially Star Wars. If you're a collector and have a bank account bigger than the second Death Star then you can bid on some rather excellent lots. For example you could win a genuine Ralph McQuarrie illustration with a whopping estimate of £120k - 180k ($145k - 218k.) What about Samuel L. Jackson's lightsaber? That has a more reasonable estimate of £60,000 - 80,000 ($75k - 100k.)
Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented on the upcoming auction – “As a huge Star Wars fan myself, I’m particularly excited about some of these fantastic lots, including Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber and some incredible R2 droids! Prop Store is thrilled to be offering such iconic pieces of the Star Wars universe to fans, together with over 900 props and costumes at Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on 30th September and 1st October 2019 at London’s BFI IMAX proudly presented by ODEON.”
