Sotheby's and Japanese designer Nigo, a Star Wars superfan, plan to auction 175 lots of vintage Star Wars toys from the collector's personal stash. The most valuable item is this display of two complete sets of collectible coins provided on special request from toy company Kenner back in 1985. It's estimated that it will go for as much as $35,000 (AU$49,165, £23,008) at the December 11 online auction.
This rare action figure from 1978 features our hero, Luke Skywalker, with a two-piece double-telescoping lightsaber. Sotheby's says there are only 20 confirmed examples of this version, which is estimated to be auctioned off at $12,000 (AU$16,857, £7,889)- $18,000 (AU$25,285, £11,833).
I don't recall this General Madine action figure being a hot seller when it was released in 1983, but with only about 12 of this particular version believed to be in the wild, Sotheby's expects it to fetch as much as $15,000 (AU$21,071, £9,861).
The success of the original "Star Wars" in 1977 was so unexpected that toy company Kenner didn't have action figures ready in time for the holiday shopping season. Instead, the company made these cardboard store displays available for devoted fans. They included boxes and certificates to send away for toys that would arrive by mail in early 1978. This is said to be one of five existing examples of a complete and unsent box. Resisting the urge to mail it off back then means it could be worth $9,000 (AU$12,642, £5,916) today.
This limited-edition clone trooper helmet from "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" comes with a stand and plaque from the run of just 2,500. Its estimated auction price is $300 (AU$421, £197) - $500 (AU$702, £329).
The question should not be how you can afford to pay real money for a Chewbacca plush doll. The question should be how you can afford to sleep soundly without one. This guy is 42 inches (107 centimeters) and was never for sale. It was used for store displays in Canada.
This complete set of droids from 1985 includes some names that only hard-core fans will remember. Besides C-3PO and R2-D2, there's also Kea Moll, Thall Joben, Jan Tosh, Kez Iban, Jord Dusat, Uncle Gundy, Tig Fromm and Sise Fromm.
This Boba Fett helmet seems like a steal if it goes for the high-end estimate of $1,200 (AU$1,687, £789) when you consider it was part of a limited run of just 600 and is signed in gold ink by the man in the helmet, Jeremy Bulloch.
This limited-edition replica of Darth Vader's helmet from the auction is signed by Anakin himself, Hayden Christensen. All 175 lots in the Sotheby's auction will be available for online bidding starting December 11, a week before the worldwide premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
