Two of the most famous props in US film history -- light sabers belonging to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader of Star Wars fame -- will go under the hammer in late July auction, organizers said.
Dozens of objects from George Lucas' celebrated sci-fi saga will go the highest bidders at the July 29 auction in Beverly Hills organized by Profiles in History, which specializes in the sale of film props.
The Jedi knight's light saber, owned by Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz, is estimated to sell for between 60,000 and 80,000 dollars.
The light saber used by the evil Darth Vader character in The Empire Strikes Back is estimated to go for 40,000 to 60,000 dollars.
The light sabers, of course, worked only on screen with the help of special effects. Luke's weapon, shown on Profiles in History's website, is a silvery tube with a black handle.
The 75 objects up for bid include Skywalker's orange "X-Wing" pilot jumpsuit, estimated to go for 60,000 to 80,000 dollars. Actor Mark Hamill wore the suit for flight scenes in "Stars Wars" and The Empire Strikes Back.
A Stormtrooper "blaster" weapon used in Star Wars is expected to sell for between 25,000 and 30,000 dollars, while a latex mask used for the green Yoda character may go for 8,000 to 10,000 dollars, organizers said.
