Auction house Sotheby’s has caused a disturbance in the Force with its auction of Stars Wars collectibles on December 11, just ahead of the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in theaters. The somewhat intriguing auction has very particular bidding instructions, which you can see here.
Called “Return of the NIGO,” (this is indeed a reference to that NIGO, he of A Bathing Ape, for those of you who get the reference) the online auction will feature early, rare and prized collectibles, including more than 600 original action figures, replica Darth Vader helmets, autographed lightsabers, vintage film posters and even a Jabba the Hutt cookie jar. A key highlight is the highly prized Luke Skywalker figurine armed with the double-telescoping lightsaber.
Estimates range from US$100 to US$35,000. The above link also leads to the sale catalog.
