Mark Hamill is no stranger to fan interaction. The actor, who rose to fame with the role of Luke Skywalker in A New Hope, has remained a favorite in the fandom mainly due to his frequent appearances at conventions, frequently hilarious interviews, and perhaps most notably, maintaining a very active Twitter account.
Through his Twitter, Hamill interacts with fans and shares behind-the-scenes moments from the Star Wars franchise, including photos and memories from his time as Luke. This past week, Hamill, it was revealed that an X-Wing miniature, created by the Industrial Light & Magic studio, sold at auction for nearly $2.5 million. This caught the attention of Hamill, who tweeted in response: “I should have kept mine.” His tweet encouraged fans to ask what items he did retain from the set, and it turns out Mark Hamill has a bounty that would even make Boba Fett jealous.
The first item Hamill revealed was Luke’s boots from the first film, a piece so valuable to the actor that he hasn’t dreamed of uncovering their true monetary worth.
The positive fan response to his initial tweet led to a four-part series stretched over a few days where Hamill shared that in addition to Luke’s boots, he also has retained possession of the Stormtrooper helmet he wore when rescuing Princess Leia, a pair of C3P0 hands and feet (which he kept for his young son), one of Jabba’s frog snacks, and an Imperial Death Star Employee’s cap.
Four priceless items owned by the Jedi Master himself are impressive, but Hamill mentioned that there might be more in his collection with a simple “end (or is it?)” with his final tweet of the series. The possibility of the continuation of the series begs the question, did he keep one of Luke’s lightsabers as well?
Until he decides to reveal more, you can check out all Star Wars projects currently streaming on Disney+ and take your bets as to which props have a home in Mark Hamill’s closet.
