Star Wars original Stormtrooper helmet to be auctioned

first_imgLos Angeles, Sep 20 (PTI) An original stormtrooper helmet used in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” is set to be auctioned in London. It is one of only a few known to exist in private hands and is expected to sell for USD 90,000 at Prop Stores Entertainment Memorabilia Auction, on September 23, reported TheWrap. “The stormtrooper is one of the quintessential costumes of the Star Wars films. The menacing helmet instantly said so much about the world George Lucas had created. “Today it may be one of the most recognised designs in film history. To own an original helmet is perhaps the ultimate Star Wars collectible,” Brandon Alinger, Prop Store COO, said. Over 450 iconic lots from over 150 films and television shows will be sold at the auction, which will be live-streamed on the stores website for fans to place bids on auction day. Though the films have been popular since the original “Star Wars” was released in 1977, the franchise has been even more present on the pop culture landscape thanks to the upcoming release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on December 18, 2015.
