Princess Leia’s slave bikini outfit from Return of the Jedi has sold at auction. People reports that the costume, sold over the weekend, went for $96,000. The biggest Star Wars sale of the auction though? The model of the Tantive IV from the opening scenes of A New Hope, for a whopping $450,000.
People cared more buying an awesomely detailed, iconic model from one of the most memorable film openings of all time more than a bronzed symbol of Leia’s reduction as a character to mere eye candy?
Man, it is nice to know that people have their priorities in order.
