New Star Wars Movie Could Make $1B: Morgan Stanley

Mike Collier watched intently as the “Star Wars” action figure came up for sale on EBay last month at more than $10,000. It was a vinyl-caped Jawa from 1978, less than four inches tall, just like the one he’d bought for almost $5,000 two years ago.

“I was like, ‘Wow, that’s pretty impressive,” said Collier, 50, a Los Angeles TV producer whose “Star Wars” collection numbers in the hundreds of items. “The old characters will not just die off.”
