How to Become Darth Vader

You can BE Lord Vader if you pay the right price at Christie’s Auction House in London. Christie’s is selling an original Darth Vader costume from the “Star Wars” movie franchise. The costume was made for “The Empire Strikes Back,” which was released in 1980.

The sale will take place on November 25th, and has been offered up for bid by a private collector in the United States. Rumor has it that the ensemble will fetch upwards of $300,000 US dollars.

How badly do you want The Force to be with you? Would you be willing to pay this kind of money for a costume worn in a movie – even if it IS a part of every geek’s history?
