Han Solo's actual blaster is for sale

Calling all Star Wars superfreaks with more than a quarter million bones in the bank: Han Solo's Blaster from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jediis up for grabs via online auction, and is expected to fetch up to $300,000.

Based on the German issue Mauser C96 pistol, the 11 inch long piece was used for filming wide shots (while the heavier, live-fire version stood in for close-ups). And if you don't feel like refinancing your home or selling off a kidney to snatch up this piece of movie history, you can always sate your hunger for Star Wars ephemera for free by browsing the franchise's just-launched official Instagram feed.
