Star Wars’ BB-8 droid was given a special makeover by actor Mark Hamill and it sold for £2,620 in a charity auction.
Hamill – who was among a group of stars to give the beloved droid a new look – themed his design on Pinewood Studios.
“It might be in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside but Pinewood will always be a galaxy far, far away for me,” Hamill explained, with proceeds from the sale going to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
“Star Wars has an unparalleled legacy here in Britain and I’m delighted it contributes so much to the thriving film industry. My BB-8 brings to life the Pinewood exterior, clapper board and the ‘Now filming Episode VIII’ sign, which is what I’m doing right now.”
