You Can Now Buy Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Movie Prop Lightsaber For Just $35,000

It’s the ultimate geeky dream to spend just five minutes with your favourite movie stars in person, to share a conversation, maybe take a selfie or two, and perhaps get an autograph. A good alternative, of course, is to own the actual props they used on set while filming those iconic blockbusters we’ve come to know and love today.

Recently, Prop Store, one of the biggest movie and TV memorabilia sellers in the world, will be putting up over 850 props that were used in over 350 films and shows in Hollywood on auction. The Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will take place on 26 and 27 August at their office in Los Angeles.

Items on auction include the Raven Bar & Well of Souls Staff of Ra Headpiece from Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).

Among the list of props are a number of noteworthy items. These include Obi-Wan Kenobi’s dueling lightsaber hilt from 2002’s Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, used by Ewan McGregor himself, Pete Mitchell’s fighter pilot helmet from 1986’s Top Gun, and even the 11-foot filming model for the USCSS Nostromo used in Alien in 1979.

Last year, we saw them put up the actual props used in the original Ghostbusters movie, with some items going up to even US$230,000 in bids. Expect more of the same to come out of this one.
