You won’t believe how much you can get for these collectables.

Ten years after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith hit theatres, the force is with us again with a new installment slated to release on December 18th. Though fans everywhere thought Episode III would conclude the Star Wars saga, they’re about to experience an entirely new chapter in the Star Wars story thanks to Disney.

The company brokered a $4.05 billion deal to buy Lucasfilm in 2012 along with the power to produce an entirely new trilogy in addition to spinoff films to continue the Star Wars story.

With all this hype about the new Star Wars episode, it got us wondering how much Star Wars collectables are really worth. Specifically, the famous metal lunchboxes.

On eBay, a vintage 1980 The Empire Strikes Back lunchbox featuring Yoda and Luke is currently on sale for $950.

According to Greatest Collectables, the following prices are compiled off of eBay’s complete sales for a lunchbox rated grade 10, which is defined as a mint condition item with no scratches and still has the original price tag and packaging from the store.

A 1977 Star Wars lunch box in grade 10 condition individually retailed for $340. A 1980 The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars lunch box, which features Han Solo, Chewbacca, Leia, and C-3PO, can be worth up to $350.

Who would have thought a metal box sitting in your closet could be worth so much? Sell your vintage lunchbox or pack a Star Wars-themed snack in your coveted collectable for the premiere in December!
