Movie buffs dream of owning bits and pieces of their favorite films. In small capacities, that is totally feasible. But, when you're seeking to purchase larger, more important pieces of cinematic history, the price tags just go higher and higher.
You won't believe what some of these famous movie props sold for at auction...
Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber
If you were a kid in the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, or heck, even now, you probably know who Luke Skywalker is. If you know who Luke Skywalker is, then there's a really good chance that you remember what his telltale blue lightsaber looks like. Back when Star Wars was originally filmed, the team didn't have the budget to get a lightsaber custom made, so they scrapped one together using camera parts.
As Time Goes On
Over the course of the filming of the first Star Wars movie, the team went through three handmade lightsaber hilts. They all made it through the production process, and the first two got auctioned off in 2008 and 2017. They were bought for $240,000 and $450,000, respectively. The third was donated to Ripley's Believe it or Not!
