The helmet, mask, shoulder armor and shin guards worn by David Prowse as the Dark Lord of the Sith in The Empire Strikes Back were expected to fetch between $250,000 and $365,000 in a Christie’s auction last week. Instead, no bidder met the reserve price and bidding stopped at 150,000 British pounds, according to an Associated Press report.
