Have You Got A £15,000 Boba Fett In Your Loft?

Man puts £100,000 worth of 'Star Wars' toys up for auction. Wife rejoices.

Remember that Millennium Falcon you got for Christmas that year, before your grandmother sat on it and crushed Han and Chewie’s hopes of ever leading the rebel alliance?

It turns out, if you’d just given these things a bit more care, you could have well been sitting on a £100,000 treasure trove of Star Wars figurines, a situation Craig Stevens (former chairman of the UK Star Wars Fan Club) has found himself in after deciding to sell his (unopened, pristine) original toy collection.

Speaking to the BBC about the decision, Craig said, "I have the rent to pay and a tough wife, so I thought why not sell?"

Although Craig’s wife may be happy, we imagine he won’t feel too put out either if the £15,000 estimated auction price for a pristine Boba Fett figure (for which Craig paid £50) comes through.

Other figures expected to earn a lot of money are an The Empire Strikes Back era Obi Wan Kenobi (£2000 - £3000) and a near-mint condition Darth Vader (£1500 - £2000).

If this all sounds a bit out of your price range you can always bid on beloved Star Wars character Arfive Defour (£40 - £60) or, erm, an Ugnaught (£60 - £80).

If you want to kick yourself for the way you treated your own toys, you can view the whole collection here, then stock up on Star Wars memorabilia to (hopefully) bag you thousands at auction in thirty years.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released on 18 December.
