The force was strong with auction bidders last Thursday.

Profiles in History, a California-based auction house, hosted a Hollywood inspired auction which showcased a myriad of film memorabilia.

More than 50 items from "Star Wars" were slated for sale on Oct. 1. Included in the collection was Princess Leia's iconic gold bikini from "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" which sold for $96,000.

The risque costume was worn by actress Carrie Fisher and was paired with a certificate of authenticity signed by Industrial Light and Magic designer Richard Miller, according to Mashable.

Variations of the outfit have made several appearances in pop culture since the films release. Television shows like "Friends," "Chuck," "Family Guy" and "Dancing with the Stars".

Leia's bikini wasn't the star of the auction, however. A miniature model of the blockade runner flown by the princess sold for $450,000.

In addition, the auction offered items from "Jaws," "Indiana Jones," "Rocky" and "Adventures of Superman." The entire Hollywood collection garnered more than $7.3 million in sales, according to the auction house.
