PrintE-mail Written by STARBURST

Star Wars. You love it. We love it. Who doesn’t love it? The epic adventures of that galaxy far, far away is still enthralling audiences and is set to roar back into our cinemas at the end of the year. So why not take a look at some real props from the classic trilogy that could be yours to own?






Stormtrooper Helmet
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Are those pesky rebels running amok in your galaxy? Dress the part and join the Empire with this “MkII” Stormtrooper bucket. You might even find the droids you’re looking for.

 Auction price estimate: £40,000-£60,000

Hero Stormtrooper Blaster
Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)

Contrary to popular belief (and three very popular movies), Imperial Stormtroopers are some of the best shots in the galaxy. Now you can get a real Stormtrooper blaster! Start saving up now.

Auction price estimate: £15,000-£20,000

Over-Sized Death Star Surface Panel
Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)

A unique piece of Star Wars memorabilia, this is part of the Death Star used during the filming of the rebel attack. Warning: may attract X-Wing fighters.

Auction price estimate: £10,000-£12,000

Clapperboard & Unit List
Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi (1983)

A must-have for fans of the filmmaking process, this has a fascinating detail – it still bears the shooting title of the movie, Revenge of the Jedi.

Auction price estimate: £800-£1,200

Anakin Skywalker (Sebastian Shaw) Facial Appliances and Lifecast
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1982)

It’s not every day you get to own one of the most iconic faces in cinema history – or at least a cast of it, with the appliances that turned Sebastian Shaw into Luke’s father.

Auction price estimate: £30,000-£40,000


Death Star Gun Tower Model Miniature
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1982)

Perfect for the fan that has everything, this was actually built by Industrial Light & Magic for the Rebels’ attack on the second death star. You’ll need to supply the gun sounds yourself, but you can do that, right?

Auction price estimate: £4,000-£6,000

Bespin Security Guard Jacket
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Want to dress like you belong with Lando Calrissian in the clouds? Then you need this guard jacket. And only lightly used, despite that dodgy deal with the Empire.

£2,000-£4,000


Hoth Rebel Trooper Hat
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

For those occasions when you need to battle the Empire on a frozen planet (or look stylish while wandering in the snow), this will also let you look like you’ve been in a firefight. Or you can just display it using the included stand.

Auction price estimate: £15,000-£20,000

Millennium Falcon Blueprint
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

The Millennium Falcon is, by any regards, the coolest ship in the galaxy. So here’s a chance to own an actual design document used on the second Star Wars film, surely a must-own for any fan of the Falcon.

Auction price estimate: £1,000-£1,500


Original UK Quad Poster Artwork
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Star Wars movie posters are always hot commodities, but this is a unique and beautiful example of original artwork based on the work of Roger Kastel. This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece.

Auction price estimate: £25,000-£30,000

All these items – and hundreds more – go under the hammer at The Prop Store Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction at ODEON BFI IMAX, Waterloo, London on September 23rd. For more info, head over to the website.
