There are few sci-fi props that would make a cooler collector's item than the blaster used by Han Solo in the Star Wars film "Return of the Jedi."

Some lucky nerd just bought the blaster at an auction over the weekend and only had to pay a half a million dollars for it. That's right, the prop used by Harrison Ford sold for $550,000.

Julien's Auctions hosted the blaster as part of their Hollywood Legends auction. Featured items included Christopher Reeve's costume from "Superman III", a black wool dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, and an Imperial Scout Trooper Blaster.
