A British couple said thank you to their lucky stars after a garage full of garbage bags inherited from a dead neighbor produced a ton of Star Wars toys valued at £ 400,000 ($ 525,000).

The couple from Stourbridge, Central England, were initially unsure what to do with the jumble of dolls and spacecraft that their neighbor had been collecting for decades. The times The newspaper reported Thursday.

Her son called an auctioneer who found a treasure trove of Star Wars memorabilia, including action figures that were still pristine in their sealed packaging.

“A lot of them were a bit damp from being stored like this, but generally it’s the best Star Wars collection I’ve seen,” Aston’s auctioneers’ Chris Aston told The Times.

“We had a lot of interest from around the world and we always expected sales to be very good,” said Aston of the auction.

A Star Destroyer Commander went under the hammer, one of only two known examples that were still in their original packaging and sold for £ 32,500 ($ 42,000) including fees, the Times said.

A Palitoy Jawa still in its box – believed to be one of only ten – fetched £ 27,280 in fees.

A set of eight figures from Return of the Jedi, each only £ 1.59 when bought new in the 1980s, was £ 1,400.

From Storm Trooper helmets to R2D2’s eyes, memorabilia from one of the world’s largest film franchises can fetch staggering sums at auctions.

In 2015, a Luke Skywalker doll, first launched as a children’s toy in 1978, sold for $ 25,000 at an auction organized by Sotheby’s and eBay.

Aston said the Stourbridge couple would be “delighted” with the unexpected gust of wind.

“I don’t know if they have specific plans, but it has to feel like they won the lottery,” he said.
