Star Wars – In a Saleroom (Not) Far Far Away

Posted in: News on October 4, 2018.

A recent visit to a local property in Maidenhead unearthed a surprising and rare collection of vintage Star Wars toys, largely dating from the original film trilogy in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The initial purpose of the house call was to value some more traditional antiques for auction, but then the vendor mentioned that he had worked on some of the costumes for the first Star Wars films and had ‘a few toys’ in his garage. Much to the delight of our valuer – who grew up with the films but wasn’t lucky enough to own the toys – there turned out to be quite a large number of items; nearly all of them had never been played with and were in their original boxes. In addition to the well known and iconic models of the Millennium Falcon and AT-AT vehicle, we found approximately 80 action figures, contained in rare and collectable carry cases modelled as Darth Vader and C-3PO, all dating from the release of the original trilogy.

The entire collection has been split into suitable lots and will be sold in our Maidenhead saleroom on Saturday October 27th, with viewing taking place on Friday 26th from 10am until 7pm.
