Darth Vader Costume From 'Star Wars' Did Not Sell at Auction


Bidding for the wardrobe from 'Star Wars: Episode V' stopped at $236,505 though it was previously priced at $340,000.

A rare Darth Vader costume from "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" remains in possession of a London auction house after failing to sell on Thursday, November 25. The full outfit from the 1980 movie, comprising of a helmet, mask, shoulder armor and shin guards, was bought by a private U.S. collector in 2003.

The costume is thought to be the first complete one to be put up for sale at auction, but it failed to spark a bidding frenzy when it went under the hammer at Christie's. Instead, bidding stopped at $236,505, falling short of the reserve price, which remains confidential.

A spokesperson for the auction house had previously priced the costume at $340,000.
