Han Solo’s Blaster is for Sale
If you’re a big Star Wars fan and have an extra $300,000 laying around you can own Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster. The weapon was used in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
It’s up for auction at Invaluable. Estimated price: $200,000 to $300,000.
Here’s a snippet from the description.
Harrison Ford “Han Solo” non-firing DL-44 Blaster from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. (TCF, 1980, 1983) Harrison Ford’s charismatic smuggler, Han Solo, is arguably the most popular character in the original Star Wars trilogy. The space-scoundrel-turned hero’s persona is irrevocably tied to his blaster pistol. Solo was modeled after the rogue gunslingers of the westerns that influenced creator George Lucas. This non-firing blaster was created for The Empire Strikes Back and was also used in Return of the Jedi. It would have been used in the majority of scenes that feature Han, with the heavier, live-fire weapon being used for close-up shots. Particularly noteworthy scenes requiring this lighter version are when Darth Vader uses the Force to lasso the blaster out of Han’s hand in Empire, and in Jedi when Han wrestles with a Stormtrooper to regain possession of his blaster during the Rebels’ encounter with Imperial forces on Endor.
Damn, it doesn’t actually fire.
The blaster is the only one known to be owned by a private collector, so it’s probably your only chance to own one. You know, if you’re super rich.
