Ready, Set. GO! Bidding is now open in the upcoming Heritage Auctions; Hollywood & Entertainment Signature Auction! This July’s auction event is ready to go with just over 850 lots in all from vintage Hollywood photos, autographed items to costumes, props and models used in your favorite movie or television show. Heritage has again put together a wonderful auction packed with goodies from all decades of entertainment and genres.
Heritage will be auctioning a cool Screen-Matched “Stop That Ship! Blast ‘Em!” Original Stormtrooper (Sandtrooper) Helmet from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. (image below)
Heritage states in their listing; “What makes this specific Stormtrooper helmet truly rarefied is that it can be both conclusively identified on screen across multiple sequences and was worn by one of only a handful of Stormtroopers appearing anywhere in the film to deliver dialog. This is the exact helmet worn by the Stormtrooper that talks with the bartender after Obi-Wan Kenobi’s disarming encounter in the Cantina with “Dr. Evazan” and “Ponda Baba.” This helmet also screen-matches 100% with the one worn by the Stormtrooper that questions the mysterious informant “Garindan,” and then rushes his squad to Docking Bay 94 to attempt to stop the Millennium Falcon from fleeing Mos Eisley Spaceport. This Stormtrooper’s last words were “Stop that ship! Blast ’em!“… immediately before being gunned down by Han Solo.”
There are also some items from the famed action film producer Joel Silver’s collection such as a variety of weapons. Star Trek collector’s there are some items for you as well including a season one “Dustbuster” Phaser from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
