Martin Nolan, the auction house's executive director, said Schoppe, an Oscar nominee for his work on the film, finally decided to part with Solo's gun and about 40 other items from the movie, including an Ewok ax and plans for Jabba the Hutt's ship.The ax went for $11,250, while another blaster prop from the film fetched $90,624, according to Julien's Auctions.Last year, an R2-D2 used in the making of several "Star Wars" films sold for $2.76 million at auction in Los Angeles.WASHINGTON:That was the case when one of the blaster pistol props used by Harrison Ford in "Return of the Jedi" (1983) went under the hammer, selling for $550,000 – topping the $450,000 previously fetched by Skywalker's lightsaber from the first two films.
