Princess Leia's Bikini and 'Star Wars' Ship Sold for Large Sum at Auction

The signature gold bikini is from 'The Return of the Jedi' while the flying ship is from the very first film, 'A New Hope'.

AceShowbiz - "Star Wars" memorabilia auction was a success. The gold bikini worn by Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia in "Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi" after she was captured by Jabba the Hutt on the desert planet Tatooine was purchased for nearly $100,000.

The signature costume had a letter of authenticity from designer Richard Miller and came with a collar and some chain. It opened at $80,000 and eventually went under the hammer to an anonymous bidder for $16,000 above the starting price.

However, the highest bid went to Blockade Runner. The flying ship seen in the first film "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" was purchased for $450,000. It set the new record as the most expensive "Star Wars" item to be sold at an auction.

A new record price was also set for a TV costume. George Reeves' "Adventures of Superman" costume from 1953 to 1954 was sold for $216,000. Harrison Ford's "Indiana Jones" whip went for $204,000 while his fedora, leather jacket, and shirt from the franchise fetched over $72,000 each.
