Over 600 Star Wars items were sold at auction by Sotheby's and eBay recently, raising $505,202 collectively. The merchandise, including unopened action figures, helmets, and posters, all belonged to one collector, Japanese designer Nigo.

Some of the top items included a 1978 Kenner Luke Skywalker action figure in-box at $25,000, one of 20 confirmed in that condition in existence. You can almost hear Nigo saying, "See mom?! I told you!"

The top seller was a 7-pack of figures from Empire Strikes Back at $32,500, though if one figure sold for 25k, then that sounds like a steal.
