    Profiles in History is holding an auction on June 6 titled Icons & Legends of Hollywood containing several screen-used Star Wars items. Among them is a model of the Death Star used in ROTJ. You can see more information here on TFN Main along with website details and the location of the auctions (should you happen to be in/near LA on the date).

    The same auction is also auctioning off Obi-Wans EPIV lightsaber I read as well. Now if I only had an extra couple of hundred grand laying about...

    That lightsaber was removed from auction for being a replica. And a bad, inaccurate replica at that. They've had a number of listings removed for being fake. Don't think I trust that auction at ALL lol. They don't research their items much apparently.

    Probably a good thing I'm not rich or I'd lose my wealth buying stuff like this (and probably end up with a lot of fakes since that's a thing).

    They're very reliable. They were the firm who parted out Debbie Reynolds massive Hollywood collection. I think we just live in a day and age where people are so good at making replicas it's becoming increasingly difficult to ferret out fakes.
