'Star Wars' Auction Puts Up Action Figures, Props At Out Of This World Prices

This is the "Star Wars" auction we were looking for.

Sotheby's, an international art dealer, is pitching an incredible collection of memorabilia from the sci-fi franchise at an auction to take place on Dec. 11.

The catalogue includes action figures, posters and signed prop replicas that will make some deep-pocketed buyers feel the power of the Force.

"Star Wars" Memorabilia Go Up For Auction

The items belong to Nigo, a "Star Wars" superfan and entrepreneur behind clothing lines A Bathing Ape and Billionaire Boys Club.

And Sotheby's, which has historically sold ritzy items such as a library that belonged to Napoleon, is selling them as part of its first ever "Star Wars"-themed auction.

"The style of my collecting is really unchanged and I still collect toys," Nigo, who started gathering items from the franchise in the 1990s, said last year.

"I am motivated to do it for the same reason, which is the personal attraction that I have to certain things."

The auction's most expensive lot is two "Star Wars: The Power of the Force" coin sets valued at anywhere between US$25,000 and $35,000.

Its next most expensive item is a Luke Skywalker action figure with a double-telescoping lightsaber from 1978. It's estimated to be worth $12,000 to $18,000.

All told, there are 175 lots to choose from ... if you have the money.

The live auction will begin on Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. ET. Anyone who wishes to partake has to register first.
