Somebody Is Going to Own Han Solo’s Blaster And I’m Jealous

May The Force Be With You

The prop used by Harrison Ford in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi is being sold at auction at invaluable.com. Just in time for the holidays…if you happen to have more than $200,000 lying around. According to the auction description…

[This blaster] would have been used in the majority of scenes that feature Han, with the heavier, live-fire weapon being used for close-up shots….The blaster is exactly in its original filming condition and therefore exhibits wear from use, but retains all of the original details, including the flash suppressor and scope (the eye-piece of which is detailed with reflective scotch-lite tape). The added distinction of this particular piece is that it was also likely used by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, as both characters shared the same style of weapon in Empire. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from a noted Star Wars collector. To our knowledge this is the only known example of this type of blaster in private hands.

Who will own this iconic piece of cinematic history? Hint: definitely not me and probably not you. All we can do is watch it longingly from a distance.
