An auction of Star Wars memorabilia belonging to the late Boba Fett actor Jeremy Bulloch has raised a major donation for a Parkinson’s research charity.

the star wars memorabilia collection of the late actor Jeremy Bulloch, who portrayed the original physical form of bounty hunter Boba Fett in films The Empire Strikes Back and return of the jedi, was auctioned on May 4 – aka Star Wars Day – in part to raise money for Parkinson’s research.

Bulloch died in 2020 aged 75 due to complications from Parkinson’s disease and, according to a BBC News report, a “substantial” part of the £155,000 (nearly $200,000) raised went to Parkinson’s UK, a UK research and support charity. Auctioneer Andrew Stowe said the collection was “remarkable and completely unique” and that there were “bids pouring in from all corners of the globe” for it. There were unreleased film reels and scripts in a “loved and appreciated” collection.

“Jeremy was clearly an avid collector,” Stowe added. “He didn’t just star in the movies, he enjoyed them as much as any other fan. The love for Jeremy Bulloch and Star Wars was clear to all. There were so many offers, we had to running at half speed, making the auction a total of nine hours, but it was a day to remember and a real honor to host such an amazing auction Jeremy was known for his caring nature and I really hope that this sale made him proud.

Maureen Walker, who married Bulloch in 1970, has thanked a family friend who “patiently spent hours cataloging the memories”. About her late husband, she shared: “In the 20 or so years that Jeremy attended conventions related to his role as Boba Fett in the Star Wars films, he acquired a large collection of memorabilia. He also received fan-made items as well as numerous works of art, including some from well-known artists. Jeremy loved and appreciated each item and displayed them proudly in his office.
