“Star Wars” established itself as a cultural phenomenon with the premiere of “A New Hope” in 1977. The sci-fi universe, created by director George Lucas, changed the way we thought about space, robots, and mysterious parentage.
Today, the “Star Wars” universe expanded into three trilogies, three made-for-TV films, and several TV shows and Christmas specials. With overwhelming cinematic success came hundreds of “Star Wars” action figures, toys, comic books, and graphic tees.
Super fans have built impressive collections of “Star Wars” memorabilia and props over the past 40 years. One fan recently won Han Solo’s blaster gun from the original film at auction for just over $1 million.
While not everyone has a cool $1 million to spend on original props, HiBid.com makes it easy for fans to find “Star Wars” merchandise to add to their collection. Find collectibles with quick bidder registrations and easy search options.
Whether you’re looking for Rebel Alliance products or Galactic Empire merchandise, read on for helpful tips on navigating HiBid.com.
