TMZ.com has posted an article about the up-coming Carrie Fisher Estate auction, which also includes some vintage Kenner Star Wars action figures.
Todd Fisher, Carrie Fisher’s brother and Debbie Reynolds’ son said, “My mother and sister were magnificent collectors, they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes. The size and scope of their collection rivals most museums. So in keeping with my mother’s wishes we have decided to share part of their magnificent collection with all their friends and fans.”
Unfortunately, some items have made it into the auction which were purchased after Carrie Fisher's passing. You can read the entire article on TMZ here: Carrie Fisher's Personal Property Auction
