A Dorchester auction house hopes the force is strong among Star Wars fans around the globe today as it offers up an impressive array of memorabilia from the franchise.
With life-size figures of Yoda and a Jawa, and many items still in their original packaging, Duke's Auctions expects the collection could fetch around £6,000 in total.
Items are priced between £40 and £1,000, and are split into 50 lots.
The collection boasts some of the highly sought-after toys manufactured in the 1970s by firms such as Kenner and Palitoy.

The unknown seller collected toys and memorabilia relating to all six Star Wars films, with an emphasis on the three original movies.
This week a rare Star Wars figure that was originally sold for 99p fetched more than £10,000 at an auction in Teeside.
