Prop Store has a strong reputation in the Star Wars collecting community for finding rare treasures, and this year’s auction is carrying on that tradition once again. Fisher’s original shooting script offers a unique glimpse into the actress, and future script doctor’s, thinking when working on the film. From that piece, to original lightsabers from Revenge of the Sith, and even a working R2 droid, Star Wars fans will enjoy their time bidding along this year.
