Consigner Craig Stevens was former president of the UK Star Wars fan club

Consigner Craig Stevens told the Gazette, a local newspaper: "I'm very pleased with the result of the auction. I'd budgeted to get a house for myself and my wife Karen and that is still going to happen."

"I do have mixed feelings about selling them, they are quite iconic. "It was never my original intention to sell them, I just started collecting them for myself. Back in the 90's I could tell these things were rare."
