Therefore, whenever one ends up for sale, it might be worth it to take out a small loan.
This time it’s Luke Skywalker’s DL-44 blaster from The Empire Strikes Back that will be on the block at Nate D. Sanders auction house, and this is a genuine screen-used prop straight from the set. So how much could this end up costing you? Find out after the jump! Read More »

October 21st 2015 is quickly approaching and we don’t have flying cars or hoverboards, but some of the Back to the Future 2 predictions are beginning to come into reality. Earlier today we told you that Pepsi was going to produce a limited number of Pepsi Perfect bottles, and a Jaws 19 trailer was released by Universal Pictures. While companies like Lexus are trying to produce a real hoverboard, we’re still a ways away from the floating skateboards promised in the Robert Zemeckis-directed sequel.
Well, today is a monumental day in the history of the hoverboard, as the Oxford English Dictionary is finally declaring that “hoverboard” is a word. Also, while we may have to wait a few years for a hoverboard like we saw in the movie, Madrid and Valterra are teaming to release special 30th anniversary officially licensed limited edition skateboards based on the hoverboard designs seen in the film. Hit the jump for more details.
