Here’s some big costume news… An original Darth Vader costume is for sale! This is the costume used in Empire Strikes Back.
Christie’s Auction House in London has announced the sale, set for Nov. 25th.
The jet-black helmet, mask and armor worn by the intergalactic villain are expected to sell for between 160,000 pounds and 230,000 pounds ($250,000 and $365,000) at a sale of pop culture memorabilia next month.
Christie’s did not name the owner, identified only as an American private collector.
$250-$350 thousand? That’s a lot of money, but I expected a price at least in the million dollar range. I’m sure there are plenty of wealthy Star Wars fans who’d love to have this!
