A Star Wars action figure which had been languishing at the bottom of a toy box for 44 years has sold for a staggering £3,500 - 43 times its estimate.<br />
<br />
The Palitoy Luke Skywalker 3.75ins toy was still in its original packaging and had never been opened.<br />
<br />
The vendor was given it as a 10 year old by his parents in 1977 who wisely told him to never play with it in case its value increased over the years.
