Han Solo 'blaster' fetches $550,000 in New York

A "blaster" used by Harrison Ford's character Han Solo in the film Return of the Jedi has sold at auction in New York for $550,000 (£415,000).

The weapon, made mostly of wood, had previously spent more than 30 years in the possession of the film's art director James Schoppe.

It sold for more than a lightsaber used by Mark Hamill in the first two Star Wars films, which fetched $450,000.

He put about 40 other items up for auction, including an Ewok axe and plans for Jabba the Hutt's ship.

The Ewok axe went for $11,250 and another blaster prop fetched $90,624, Julien's Auctions said.

The most expensive piece of Star Wars memorabilia was an R2-D2 droid used in several Star Wars films. It fetched $2.76m in Los Angeles last year.
