STAR WARS Prop Auction Features Head Mold of Admiral Ackbar

For sci-fi movie prop collectors, items from the Star Wars saga are the Holy Grail. Now, fans who have wanted to get their hands on authentic items from a galaxy far, far away are in for a treat. Several props and costumes from the saga are going up for auction by The Prop Store of Los Angeles and London. Some very coveted pieces are among the items, including a full Darth Vader costume from 1977.

These Star Wars items are part of a much larger sci-fi/horror movie auction, being held on August 26th and 27th. One lucky fan will have a chance to get their hands on one of the great heroes of the Rebel Alliance: this Admiral Ackbar sculpt. Made after Return of the Jedi, from the original mold, it will set you back at least $3,000 to $5,000.

As for other props you can snag? For starters, how about an actual 1977 Darth Vader Promotional Touring Costume from A New Hope (1977)? It’s only estimated at a cool $150,000 – $250,000.

In addition to being worn at promotional events for the original movie, the helmet’s dome has the distinction of being featured on the advance poster for The Empire Strikes Back.

You can also get your hands on this Stormtrooper Helmet from A New Hope (1977) for an estimated $60,000– $80,000. It’s a little banged up, but hey, it survived a Death Star explosion.


The Prop Store

This Luke/ Han on Tauntaun Puppet armature from The Empire Strikes Back (1980) might not look like much now. But this is exactly what you saw on screen whenever you saw our Rebel heroes on Tauntauns in the Hoth scenes. It’s estimated to go anywhere from $20,000 – $30,000.


The Prop Store

This Duros Alien Mask is from The Empire Strikes Back (1980). Although, we distinctly remember Duros aliens in A New Hope, and we’re not sure where they appeared in Empire. Deleted scene maybe?


The Prop Store

This Count Dooku’s (Christopher Lee) Dueling Lightsaber is from Attack of the Clones (2002). A Sith Lord’s weapon, known to remove a Jedi limb or two, is estimated to go for at least $30,000.


The Prop Store

Straight from the Falcon, this Key Chess Piece Armature is from A New Hope (1977) can be yours if you’ve got an estimated $20,000 lying around.


The Prop Store

This Chief Ugnaught Alien Mask from The Empire Strikes Back (1980) is the way.


The Prop Store

And straight from Geonosis, here’s Obi-Wan Kenobi’s (Ewan McGregor) Dueling Lightsaber Hilt from Attack of the Clones (2002). An elegant weapon from a more civilized age (the early 2000s), it’s estimated to go for at least $25,000.


The Prop Store

Here’s a production made Boba Fett Helmet from Return of the Jedi (1983). Boba’s helmet looked like this after the Sarlaac?? Being digested slowly for 1,000 years strips all the color away I guess.


The Prop Store

Nobody tell Moff Gideon one of his Stormtroopers is AWOL. The Empire lives with this Stormtrooper costume from The Mandalorian (2019) at an estimated $8,000 – $10,000.
