Jun 24, 2018 - 11:11 PM

The blaster's price beats the $450,000 fetched by the Luke Skywalker's lightsaber

(FILES) In this file photo taken on May 21, 2018 Star Wars' Han Solo's BlasTech DL-44 blaster (estimated value $300,000 - 500,000) is exhibited by Julien's Auctions at Planet Hollywood, in New York.   In the wildly popular "Star Wars" films, Han Solo once told a lightsaber-wielding Luke Skywalker: "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." That was the case when one of the blaster pistol props used by Harrison Ford in "Return of the Jedi" (1983) went under the hammer, selling for $550,000 -- topping the $450,000 previously fetched by Skywalker's lightsaber from the first two films."SOLD for $550,000! An original Han Solo blaster used in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi!" Julien's Auctions announced on Twitter June 23, 2018.  / AFP PHOTO / HECTOR RETAMAL
