Every Star Wars fan worth his or her fault will instantly recognize the Blockade Runner, the first flying ship to appear in Episode IV - New Hope in 1977. Well it just so happens that a filming miniature of the Blockade Runner was recently made available at auction alongside a whole array of other desirable pieces of Hollywood history. Unsurprisingly, it ended up fetching quite a pretty penny at auction.

This miniature version of the Blockade Runner sold for $450,000 at the Profiles in History auction. What's amazing about this price is that it is more than double the estimated selling price. Moreover, this figure makes the Blockade Runner prop the most expensive piece of Star Wars memorabilia ever sold at auction, making it a part of history as if it wasn't already.
