An anonymous Star Wars fan recently completed the purchase of a ‘sexy Princess Leia’ depicting her outfit from Star Wars episode six. Although the net highest bid was only $20k, the buyer wanted to “lock it in, as it is a special piece to me.”
It is unclear why he chose to so violently overspend on the art, but it now makes it the 16th most expensive NFT ever sold at auction. This is also the first NFT this anonymous buyer has ever bought and remains the only piece in his portfolio. Some speculate this buyer could even be George Lucas himself attempting to relive his glory days.
