Thanks to Jedi News for bringing this one to our attention. Fancy a Stormtrooper helmet signed by George Lucas? Well you’ve just missed out. The famous Sothebys have just had an auction for just such a thing. The lot went for…wait for it…$245,000. Yes that’s right, a quarter of a million dollars. The reserve was just $10,000 to $15,000.
I just paid £10 for a stormtrooper helmet to complete my last 17 Luke in Stormtrooper gear. That was enough!
