Get ready to feel the force ... flowing through Luke Skywalker's pants

In the '80s, we would herd nerds to The Gap. A even longer time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I guess they would herd womp rats to the auction house. That's where you can find Luke Skywalker's pants from Star Wars.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the sand-colored jeans, which were worn by Mark Hamill for much of the film, have a 29-inch waist and 37-inch length. (Good for you, Mark!) They were made by Levi Strauss & Co. and customized (with two six-inch slits down each side) by London costumier Bermans & Nathans.

Bidding ends soon, and the current high bid is $29,834. But even if you feel like offering a cool $30k, beware of the dark side of Hollywood auctions: These pants won't be free from the Empire unless you can offer between $70,000 and $100,000. I'd rather kiss a wookiee.
