Screen-worn ”hero” costume pants worn by Mark Hamill in his career-defining role as Luke Skywalker in the 1977 epic film ”Star Wars”, the first in the groundbreaking trilogy. As one of the top-grossing films of all time, George Lucas’ first film in the successful series won six Oscars, among many other awards. In a galaxy far, far away, Hamill donned these iconic pants as the Jedi Knight of all Jedi Knights, wearing the costume pants throughout much of the film. Sand-colored ”cotton drill” Levi’s pants are purposely distressed to display wear, with dirt to back right pocket and in spots to front of pant legs. In fact, in an accompanying article, Mark Hamill said of the pants, ”By the way, those pants I wore were just bleached Levi’s with the tag still in them.” Pants measure 29” waist x 37” in length with two 6” slits up each side. Customized by the famous London costumier, Bermans & Nathans, original tag sewn to inseam reads: ”Bermans & Nathans / 40 Camden St., / London N.W. 1” tag with a ”Mark Hamill / 10490 Luke / Star Wars” printed in type beneath it. Very good condition overall. Also with tags attached from both Christie’s, where the pants were originally auctioned, and Sotheby’s, from its 1998 auction. Sold for $60,000.
Luke Skywalker’s DL-44 Blaster From “The Empire Strikes Back” — Scarce Piece of “Star Wars” Memorabilia — With Sotheby’s Provenance
Luke Skywalker’s DL-44 Blaster from “The Empire Strikes Back”. The iconic gun is the same model used by Han Solo, a design based on the German issue Mauser C96 pistol and custom made by casting the original prop used in the first “Star Wars”.

Made of gray, silver and brown colored fiberglass. Blaster was gifted to original owner by Hamill during an episode of “Jim’ll Fix It”, a children’s show on BBC Television. Measures 12″. Gun is in original 1980 filming condition and has some wear, including one glued section. Overall very good condition. With provenance from Sotheby’s 18 March 1998 sale, as lot 48. A very rare and desirable piece of “Star Wars” history.
