The Force Was With Bodnar’s Auction: Star Wars Collection Sells for over $55,000.00!

Jedi Master Joe Bodnar, owner of Bodnar’s Auction, was extremely pleased with the October 7, 2021 sale results. With over 5,000 registered bidders from all over the world, the force was with this impressive single-owner collection!

The collection of Star Wars and Star Trek items spanned the past 40 years. The items were in pristine condition like the day they came off the shelf in the toy store. The collection came from a Chicago, IL, estate, where the daughter reminisced that her father would send her to the toy store to pick up the latest Star Wars toy where then he would wrap a plastic bag around it and store it in a bedroom.

Another cool fact about the collection was all the price tags on the items came from the same two stores. Highlights of the sale, which were online, include:

  • Star Wars X-Wing Fighter. Kenner 1978. Sealed in box. Sold for $2478.00
  • Star Wars Land Speeder. Kenner 1978. Sealed in box. Sold for $1888.00
  • Rare Star Wars Lightsaber. Kenner 1977. Sealed in box. Lightsaber inflated to 35″. Sold for $1091.50.
  • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport). Kenner 1981. Sealed in original box. Sold for $2478.00.
  • Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Millennium Falcon. Kenner 1981. Sealed in Original Box sold for $4425.00.
  • Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett 3.5″ Action Figure. Kenner 1980. Sealed on Card. Sold for $4130.00.
  • Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker 3.75″ Action Figure. Kenner 1980. Sealed on Card. Sold for $1298.00.

I’m happy with everything Joe and Janet did, you were both informative and were very helpful with the questions I had being that I was never in that position before. Janet’s response time was also positive for me. It was interesting to watch the auction live. I thought you did an amazing job and had a nice banter back and forth. You seem to be a good team! Thank you for all your hard work and making this difficult time of letting  my deceased father’s collectibles go an easy experience.

I would like to thank you for including me in your online sale.
Everything from none contact drop off, to none contact pick up, was handled with the outmost professionalism.
I appreciated your clear communication after the sale with a printout and an explanation of when I’ll receive my check.
Overall I was very please with the prices my jewelry achieved, some lot  went for less then I expected, others went for more, it’s all in the average.

Thank you very much

I come to your auctions often. You and your staff are great. Your change to an online auction on 4/9 is just another testament to your fine character and being thoughtful of others. The items are great no doubt, but a big reason I keep coming back is due to the culture you have created. Thank you. Art
