December 11th will be a day the real fanboys will set their financial accounts in place and keep their eyes peeled for the best price they could derive off this unbelievable auction. Japanese designer Nigo who is the fan of the series himself is taking a collection to Sotheby’s for one of the greatest Star Wars collectibles auction. Thanks to ‘The Force Awakens’ release we have more Star Wars things to look forward to in the next few months, however, not many things would get a fan worked up like this auction here.
