Darth Vader costume fails to sell at Christie’s

The force can’t have been strong with this one…

A rare Darth Vader costume failed to sell at auction by Christie’s on 25th November. It had recieved a pre-sale estimate of £160,000-230,000.

However, a pistol held by Sean Connery in a poster to promote From Russia With Love did sell at Christie’s Popular Culture: Film and Entertainment auction. The pistol sold for the grand sum of £277,250, 10 times its estimate of £15,000-20,000.
