Star Wars Memorabilia Auction

In a galaxy not so far away, the iconic actor Anthony Daniels, famous for portraying the neurotic and lovable C-3PO in the Star Wars saga, has decided to part ways with a treasure trove of Star Wars memorabilia. This collection of cinematic history includes an array of props and mementos from his time filming the epic space opera.

Daniels has joined forces with the Hertfordshire-based auctioneer, Propstore, to offer fans and collectors a chance to own a piece of Star Wars history. The decision to part with these cherished items was not made lightly. However, Daniels believes it’s time for these artifacts to find new homes where they will be appreciated and displayed with the reverence they deserve.

“I realized I had these items, and they’re not unloved, but they are unlooked at – we don’t have them crowding the sitting room,” Daniels remarked. “Will I feel sad to part with them? No. I will enjoy the fact that people will cherish and display them.”

Among the nearly 200 items that will hit the auction block are fragments of Daniels’ iconic droid costume, autographed scripts brimming with annotations, and even remnants of the Millennium Falcon set—an impressive piece of cinematic history in its own right.

One particularly fascinating anecdote is Daniels’ claim that he rescued portions of the Millennium Falcon set from an Elstree Studios bonfire following the conclusion of filming for “Return of the Jedi.” It’s a testament to the actor’s dedication to the Star Wars universe and his desire to preserve its legacy.

The auction kicked off at BAFTA’s London headquarters and will continue through Sunday. If you’re a dedicated Star Wars aficionado or simply someone who appreciates the magic of cinema, this is a unique opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history. The full catalog of items up for auction can be perused on Propstore’s website.

Who is Anthony Daniels?

Anthony Daniels, an English actor and mime artist, initially had limited exposure to the world of science fiction before destiny cast him as the fastidious and fretful protocol droid in the original Star Wars film, “A New Hope.” Despite enduring the discomfort of his rigid, golden costume, especially in the scorching desert heat of Tunisia where the Tatooine scenes were filmed, Daniels became an integral part of the Star Wars legacy after the movie became a global sensation.

Daniels holds a unique distinction as the only actor to appear in all eleven theatrical Star Wars films. His portrayal of C-3PO extended throughout the nine films of the Skywalker Saga, and he made an appearance in “Rogue One.” Beyond that, he lent his voice to Threepio in various animated series, including “Clone Wars,” “Rebels,” and the ’80s classic “Droids.” His most recent live-action cameo as C-3PO was in the TV series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and “Ahsoka.” Additionally, Daniels has made notable appearances in other television and film productions, including a recurring role in the British crime series “Prime Suspect” alongside Helen Mirren and voicing Legolas in Ralph Bakshi’s animated adaptation of “The Lord of the Rings.”

While Daniels is parting with a significant portion of his Star Wars memorabilia, there are a couple of items he intends to keep close to his heart—a Lego sculpture of C-3PO gifted to him for his involvement in a Lego Star Wars project and a C-3PO statue shaped like an Academy Award, presented to him by Lucasfilm. As Daniels humorously puts it, “I’ll take those to the grave.”

The Propstore auction of Anthony Daniels’ Star Wars treasures promises to be an exciting event for fans and collectors alike.
