Rare 'Star Wars' Memorabilia Exceeds Expectations At Auction

Among the lots that sold for far more than expected was an unused ride-on Star Wars Speeder Bike and store display with its original shipping box which had an estimate of between $8,000 to $10,000 but actually sold for $24,600. Huffy made the ride-on pedal bike for Kenner for a 1984 store promotion and limited retail sale. One of 100 grand prizes, there are few known examples of an unused, unassembled bike with an unused store display in the original shipping box. It’s one of the Holy Grails of Star Warsdisplay collecting.
