An eighty-year-old English couple discovered that they had Star Wars toys and gadgets with colossal collectible value in their garage: here’s how it went and how much they collected!

Mysteries of extreme collecting: we know well that the gadgets of Star Wars, especially those historians who straddle the seventies and Eighty, have a considerable collectible value, but one English couple of eighty he didn’t actually have any concrete idea, until their son contacted Chris Aston, of the auction house Aston’s Auctioneers in the West Midlands.

Really vintage materials that have become a holy grail for very moneyed nerds. At the time they were nothing more than harmless toys for children, sweetly enhanced by the world of Star Wars conceived by George Lucas.
