The crown jewel of the auction will be the ceremonial dress that Carrie Fisher wore in the original trilogy. Princess Leia wears this white dress to present Luke (Mark Hamill) and Han (Harrison Ford) with medals for saving the galaxy in A New Hope. It is believed to be the only surviving dress left from the Original Trilogy, which is presumed to fetch an auction price of around $2 million. It is the dress that Fisher wore during many photoshoots and inspired the many posters that Leia was in for the film.

The next piece that could land around the same amount is the Batpod that Christian Bale piloted in The Dark Knight Rises. The converted motorcycle will not be operational, as the battery, fuel tank, and throttle controls have been removed. The vehicle is being auctioned off as having the ability to be “rolling only.” It is one of six Batpods made for filming, which stuntman Pierre Goy mainly operated.
