Obi-Wan’s Lightsaber, An Alien Costume, And More Movie Props Available In Online Auction

What better way to get your mind off the still-pending election than with some early holiday shopping? Prop Store, an expansive operation based in London and Los Angeles whose focus is right there in its name, has announced it will be hosting another auction of entertainment memorabilia across December 1 and 2.

If you’re the patient type, you could scoop up Neo’s costume, and then wear it while playing Cyberpunk 2077 on a console?
