Obi Wan

A priceless relic of the days before the ruining has come to light. Obi Wan Kenobi's orginal robes from 1977 classic, "Star Wars" has been found in a London fancy dress shop.

It was kept among hundreds of monksí robes which were later transferred to the firmís fancy dress shop in Shaftesbury Avenue. The history of the robe was only discovered during a routine stock check. Company boss Tim Angel said: "One of the guys was sorting through this pile of monksí robes and saw this brown one with an odd-shaped hood.

"He put it on and the manager said; 'Oh my God, itís Alec Guinnessís cloak from Star Wars. Itís unmistakable, an iconic piece.' All this time we have been renting it out to customers wanting to hire a monkís outfit for a fancy dress party."
