Just when you think your obsession and dedication towards Star Wars couldn’t get any higher, you start to read stories like this one.

One Star Wars fan, whose name has not been revealed, but obviously has a lot of spare cash lying around, parted with $402,500 for an original miniature of a T.I.E. fighter spaceship.

That is a serious amount of cash for something that is only 17 inches tall and 14 inches wide.

Let’s hope whoever it was that bought it has an understanding partner.   I can just see the buyer now dragging the T.I.E fighter through the door saying “darling, you’ll never guess the bargain I picked up at the auction room today.   It was ONLY $400 grand…!”
