Out of this world! Star Wars-themed mansion complete with lifesize Darth Vader and C-3PO for sale

A luxury LA mansion complete with life-size replicas of some of the Star Wars franchise’s most loved characters is up for grabs for any fans of the sci-films – at a cost of at least $26.5 million. 

The 18,200sq ft property has a huge basement stocked with incredible works inspired by the Skywalker saga. 

It includes life-size figures of Darth Vader and Yoda and even a re-creation of the iconic cantina scene from the original Star Wars’ movies. 

The owner, an unidentified semi-retired investor, is willing to part with the collection for an unannounced sum on top of the $26.5 million dollar tag on the house – barring a few pieces that hold sentimental value.  

The space is designed to give visitors a sense that they are on the planet Tatooine, where Luke Skywalker grew up.  

Beyond this ‘Star Wars’ universe paradise, the 18,200sq ft home also has a gym, a music studio, a 750-gallon aquarium and a safe room. 

The three-acre grounds have an indoor-outdoor pool and spa area with a grotto, waterslide and waterfall.

There’s also a tennis court and for more outer-space appeal – an observatory with a 14-inch reflector telescope. 

Inside the luxury sci-fi-themed mansion there is also a movie theater, with multiple leather seats and a ceiling that is a model of the cockpit view from a TIE fighter - a single-pilot vehicle that is designed for fast-paced maneuvering in outer-space

The house also comes with a collection of models of key figures from the Star Wars franchise as seen in this foyer outside the movie theater. The gold-colored C-3PO is a multilingual robot created by Anakin Skywalker. The little bot, R2-D2, is a well-known and much loved character who features regularly in the franchise with his characteristic bleep-bloop sound often announcing his arrival

The luxury mansion also recreates the dimly-lit tavern, known as the Mos Eisley cantina, where people often gathered to enjoy a strong drink and music. Located on the sparsely-populated desert planet known as Tatooine, the home of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, the cantina was known as being a good spot to find a spaceship crew

The various Star Wars-themed figures dotted throughout the house are primarily custom-built replicas, not props that appeared on screen. The unnamed home owner believes the props do not have the same high-quality finish like the replicas he owns
