Overdosing on ''Star Wars'' products

Posted on

The digitally remastered Star Wars trilogy doesn’t zoom into multiplexes until January, but fans feeling the Force can still overdose on Wars products, none more sublime than a full-scale replica of Luke Skywalker’s X-wing star fighter, being auctioned off by Neiman Marcus via its Christmas catalog. Minimum bid: $35,000. The 27′ x 19′ fiberglass-and-steel nonflying craft was built last year by Twentieth Century Fox to hype Wars‘ video release. ”Someone might want it on a big estate,” suggests Neiman Marcus’ Jodie Corley. ”Or maybe you’d want to donate it to a museum.” Or maybe you just need the perfect gift for that Jedi knight who has everything.
