The WTF is strong with this one.
On Tuesday, jeweler Ginza Tanaka unveiled the glitzy helmet and announced it would go on sale on May 4 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
It took a total of 10 goldsmiths three months to craft and assemble the ultimate “Star Wars” trophy, per the outlet.
The helmet is 10.4 inches wide, 11.8 inches tall and weighs 33 pounds. Unfortunately, due to its weight, the mask is too heavy to wear.
And if you don’t have the money for this gilded paperweight piece of memorabilia, the jeweler has also made commemorative “Star Wars” coins that are a tad more affordable.
The coins come in sets of three that sell for about $11,000 a pop, The New York Times reported.
If you’re interested in these coins, you have to act fast. Ginza Tanaka has only 77 sets, a number that the jeweler says is an homage to 1977, the year that “A New Hope” was released.
We guess it’s time to bust open that change jar-Jar.
