Star Wars has a cult following. It has become as much a part of the rich tapestry of our culture as any other film or TV show. With 12 films, and a variety of TV series since 1977, George Lucas has forever changed the face of viewing entertainment and our relationship with space.
But not only that, George Lucas is also responsible for changing the face of licensing deals, as Star Wars has been one of the most sought after collections following any movie, with pieces dramatically gaining in value as time goes by.
Starting with toy action heroes, and the first wave of heroes including R2-D2, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Han Solo, C-3PO, Stormtrooper,Death Squad Commander, Jawa and Sand People in 1977 and then later in 1978 eight more action figures were introduced. Not only highly collectible by highly prized as pieces have exceeded $650,000 (George Lucas’s Panavision camera).
