The Jury Talks Back

One light saber equals two droid heads

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 5:11 am

A number of Star Wars and other movie memorabilia were auctioned off yesterday.  The light saber that Luke Skywalker used in Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back sold for $240,000, while the C3PO droid helmet fetched $120,000.

Personally, I’m holding out for the R2D2 unit.

  1. As an aside, Wal-Mart has the cool FX lightsabers (the ones with perm-attached blade, and neat motion-sounds) on clearance for fifty bucks…

  3. Are you sure, Scott? Don’t make me drive there for nothing. Toys ‘r Us is sold out of the Ultimate Light Saber with no prospect of getting in new ones and the ones online going for twice the price.

    It isn’t nice to tease us single guys like that, MayBee… :)

  6. Only one left available online is Ben Kenobi’s.

    Though the ones I really like are a bit more expensive…

  7. Based on the sidebar on the right, Think Geek still has the Yoda lightsaber in stock.
