'Star Wars' Memorabilia Own a REAL Lightsaber (It's Still Fake)

12/9/2012 4:00 AM PST
Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber from Toys 'R' Us for $100 ... but why bother with a cheap imitation when you can own the real thing ... for THOUSANDS MORE?

Luke Skywalker's lightsaber from "Return of the Jedi" is hitting the auction block later this month, courtesy of Profiles in History ... and it could be all yours (if you've got between $30k and $50k to blow).

Other goodies up for grabs from the "Original Trilogy of Star Wars" collection include:

- An original X-wing Fighter miniature (est. price $80k to $120k)
- An Imperial Royal Guard helmet (est. price $40k - $60k)
- A Scout Trooper blaster (est. price $10k - $15k)
- A conceptual Jabba the Hutt sculpture (TBD)

Even the cheapest of the pieces -- a rejected Yoda head -- is still expected to fetch at least $4,000.

So do ... or do not ... whatever.
