If you are both a Star Wars fan and piano player, the ideal pop culture collectible for you just popped up on eBay. More than merely “the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy,” this fully functional, custom-built Player Piano was created for Sonya Belousova’s Ultimate Star Wars Medley video. You can see both the musician and her pianos in action in the clip below.
According to the seller’s notes, the “one-of-a-kind piano is an amazing piece for any Star Wars Fan. We’d keep it ourselves except that we have several custom pianos at the moment and not enough room to store them.”
But potential purchasers be warned: over and above its $7,500 starting price, whoever buys this smuggler’s bounty will also have to pay the shipping costs from its current docking bay in a storage unit in Los Angeles, California.
The vendor also notes that “this is a film prop. It won’t sound like a steinway.” Like any piano that hasn’t been played in a while, it will need to be tuned after it is set up in its new location, “but for the average piano player it will sound great.”
And if all this has got you excited to see the real Millennium Falcon in action, Han’s old ship will feature in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is due to hit cinemas at the end of the year.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi features returning cast members Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, joined by franchise newcomers Kelly Marie Tran as Rose, and Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern in undisclosed roles. The film opens on December 15.
