A pair of trousers worn by Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy has pulled in $36,100 (£23,000) at auction. Actor Mark Hamill donned the sand-coloured Levi's to play the iconic Jedi Knight in George Lucas' 1977 sci-fi classic Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Experts at Los Angeles auction house Nate D. Sanders had set a pre-sale estimate of $70,000-$100,000 (£45,000-£65,000), but the distressed pants pulled in $36,100 when they went under the hammer on Tuesday (21May13). There were 13 bids for Hamill's trousers, according to AFP.
