The iconic black leather jacket featured in 'Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back', failed to reach its reserve price, Indiana Jones' fedora and Stormtrooper helmets became big hits.

AceShowbiz - The jacket Harrison Ford wore as Han Solo in "Star Wars" sequel "The Empire Strikes Back" has failed to meet its reserve price at auction.

The item was expected to fetch up to $1.3 million (£1 million) when it went under the hammer at a Prop Store sale, but it was pulled when it failed to reach $663,000 (£500,000).

However, another item worn by Ford on the big screen - Indiana Jones' fedora - was a big hit, selling for $425,000 (£320,000) - $159,000 (£120,000) more than its expected low bid.

Stormtrooper helmets from the first "Star Wars" film and last year's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" were also big hits, as was a lightsaber wielded by Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith", Johnny Depp's Edward Scissorhands costume, which went under the hammer for $86,000 (£65,000), and the Superman cape worn by the late Christopher Reeve, which sold for $172,500 (£130,000).

Meanwhile, Prop Store bosses are still hoping to sell the Han Solo jacket after receiving a wave of post-auction requests.
