Star Wars Fans: Bring Me The Head Of A Wookie

by | 30th, July 2007

IF you’ve got around £40,000 to spare and are a massive Star Wars fan, or simply have an urge to spend it on something completely impractical and quite silly, then either get yourself over to LA or simply log on to eBay, which is actually probably a lot easier to do.

Why? To bag yourself the original head of Chewbacca that’s why. Isn’t it obvious? The hairy costume piece which was worn by the towering 7ft 3in British actor Peter Mayhew in the original 1977 movie is being sold at auction in Los Angeles on August 3rd, although fans can also bid for it online on eBay.

Bidding starts at a sizeable £40,000 while an original Stormtroopers helmet will also be up for grabs for a cool £10,000.

I can see the bedroom scene now – her with her hair in Princess Leia plaits, him with the head of a wookie…. I think we should leave it there.
