A recently found Star Wars X-Wing fighter has been sold at auction
A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:
Good morning. I'm A Martínez.
Not so long ago in this very galaxy, a lost "Star Wars" X-wing fighter was found and auctioned off. The small, detailed model was used for close-up scenes in "A New Hope." Now, it was found last year in the collection of the late miniature-maker Greg Jein. The winning bid - $3.1 million. I wonder how much it'd cost to get a little of that Force I keep hearing about.
