We covered the auction of the original DL-44 blaster prop Harrison Ford used in Star Wars a while back. Can you believe it, the blaster sold Yesterday for the starting bid price of a massive $200 000. That was the winning bid in an online auction for the blaster, which took place over the weekend, according to the California-based seller, Profiles in History. The buyer is anonymous by default, but we’ve contacted Profiles in History to see if the customer will come forward.

The battered film prop, like many from Star Wars, is based on a World War II original. In this case, the inspiration was a German Mauser C96 semi-automatic pistol without the shoulder stock. What sold on Saturday isn’t even the pistol Harrison Ford used in A New Hope; no one knows where that is, or if it even survived the filming process . This prop is the version that replaced it, from Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Just image how much the actual blaster will go for?
