Got a spare $500,000 laying around? If you do, you should consider treating yourself to a piece of cinematic history. ‘Star Wars’ main villain is giving up his beloved helmet and mask to one lucky person with deep pockets.

The famous attire is being auctioned off by Profiles in History, the largest auctioneer of Hollywood Memorabilia. Founder of the company, Joseph Maddalena said the ‘Star Wars’ feature is one of the most significant items up for grabs.

Maddalena told the Hollywood Reporter, “It’s the holy grail of science fiction.”

‘Star Wars’ is so beloved by fans, Maddalena admitted nothing can top Darth Vader’s mask. “If you have that, you don’t have to have anything else. That’s your collection. There’s no up from there.”

However, Vader’s helmet isn’t the only nostalgic piece of memorabilia for sale. The highest bidder can feel right at home in Dorthy’s dress from “The Wizard of Oz.” Not to mention Kate and Leo’s outfits from the heartthrob movie “Titanic.”

Of course, a piece of history costs a pretty penny. Almost every treasure is expected to run you $100,000 or higher.

Hollywood film fanatics can throw all their spare change on the table at ‘The Icons and Legends of Hollywood’ auction. The collection features more than 950 items and is valued over $10 million. Scurry to Calabasas, California September 25th and 26th to take home your newest asset!
