An anonymous seller in Dorset has spent 15 years collecting Star Wars memorabilia, but now it is being sold at auction.
Dorchester auction house Dukes said it was 'most unusual' for such an extensive collection to go under the hammer.
Auctioneer, Matthew Denney, said the man was very brave to take his collection to the market:
An auction war is expected to break out today as a huge Star Wars collection goes under the hammer.
People have contacted Dukes Auctioneers from all over the world expressing their interest in the collection which could sell for more than £50,000.
The collection, which includes some of the more sought after action figures, has been amassed by just one fan.

Her career highlights include acting with Joan Collins, Marlon Brando and Ava Gardner. Worldwide fame was found by appearing in some of the most popular programmes on TV in the eighties - Dynasty, and The Colbys.
