    A second sale dedicated to ‘Star Wars’ collectibles runs at Sotheby’s until December 13. ‘Star Wars Online’ offers around 100 lots from the acclaimed franchise ahead of the highly-anticipated release of the final film in the sequel trilogy, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’. As well as original posters, stickers and action figures, the auction will include many early, rare and prized collectibles associated with the film series. The 2015 Star Wars sale at Sotheby’s was a sellout.
