Millions of Voices Suddenly Cry out in Terror (Lukes Lightsaber Sold! and a Hot Pick of Kristin Bell as Slave Leia!)

POOF!  Where did my light saber go??

A few weeks ago I posted about the Hollywood paraphernalia auction that was going to take place Dec 11th, and some of the extra awesome things that would be sold, including Luke’s original light saber, C3PO’s ROTJ head and Indy’s Temple of Doom hat and whip…among a bunch of other really cool movie items.

So yeah, some lucky son of a motherless wampa ass purchased Luke’s light saber for $236,000 (this was the highest item sold during the auction), C3PO’s head and genitals were purchased for $120,000 and $40,000 respectively, and a section of the original Death Star sold for around $20,000.

I’m sorry, and my dear beloved mother, if she were alive today, god rest her soul, would probably wash my mouth out with soap for saying this, but I hate every mother fucker that attended that auction and was able to bid on something. Look, I’m not going to lie, I’m bitter.  The ultimate in fan geekdom is to be able to own some of this shit and whoever was able to purchase any of it really are some of the luckiest fuckers on the planet.  More power to them I guess.

I’m still saving up for my next prize possession:  An autographed picture of Kristin Bell (Elle from Heroes) in a Slave Leia costume!  Yummy!

Anyways, Indy’s whip and Fedora from Temple of Doom failed to sell along with 20% of the items up for bid.  Geez…I wonder why.
