Han Solo Blaster from ‘Return of the Jedi’ Sells at Auction
Harrison Ford’s famous Return of the Jedi weapon sells, along with an Imperial Scout Biker Scout and an Ewok prop ax.
Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster, especially if you have Han Solo’s iconic gun at your side.
Harrison Ford’s blaster seen in the Star Wars film Return of the Jedi sold for $550,000 (roughly £414,216, AU$742,115) at Julien’s Auctions Hollywood Legends auction Saturday in Las Vegas.
