‘Star Wars’ auctions bring in nearly $575 so far for Not-Forgotten Box

ELYRIA — After three rounds of eBay auctions, 101 of the 102 items placed on eBay for the Not-Forgotten Box toy drive have sold, bringing in a total of $573.76 before fees from eBay and Paypal and shipping costs are factored in.

The fourth and final round of items in the auction for the toy drive co-sponsored by the Elyria Salvation Army and The Chronicle-Telegram will be put on eBay tonight and Wednesday night and includes mostly action figures from “Star Wars: Episode 1 — The Phantom Menace.”

The lone item that did not sell when listed was an old Anakin Skywalker figure from “Return of the Jedi.”

So far, the most expensive item was an electronic 12-inch Boba Fett bounty hunter action figure that sold for $37.

Items sold in the first three rounds of auctions are in the process of being packaged and will be shipped out beginning Wednesday.
