It was created for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), where it was worn by William Shatner, and was reused in The Wrath of Kahn by Paul Winfield in his role as Terrill.

The film reinvigorated the franchise, which had lapsed in popularity during the late 1970s, and was a critical and commercial success -the filmachieved$97m on its opening day.

Yoda's hand from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back achieved $12,000.

The lot is part of the puppet created by designer Stuart Freeborn and built with the help of employees from the Jim Henson workshop.

It was operated by Frank Oz, a puppeteer and director who also worked on the Muppets and Sesame Street.

We have this piece of Krayt Dragon bone from the first Star Wars film.
