'Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope' original screen-used X-Wing Fighter miniature
The highest estimated item, starting at $150,000, goes to the X-Wing Fighter from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. The model comes directly from the collection of Academy Award-winner Grant Clune, the Star Wars chief model maker on the miniature and optical effects unit. The miniature was constructed from the surviving components of blown-up models on set, giving it the authenticity of “battle damage.”
