If your action figure shelves are looking a little paltry, one nonprofit is offering the chance for a lucky bidder to instantly balloon his or her collection — and seriously nerd out on some Star Wars memorabilia.

The nonprofit Star Wars museum Rancho Obi-Wan is auctioning off 1,950 Star Wars action figures, which were donated to the organization by Fon Davis, who spent over 30 years building the collection. The auction marks the anniversary of the museum and the release of a new book, “Star Wars: The Ultimate Action Figure Collection,” which was written by the museum’s chief executive, Steve Sansweet.

Rancho Obi-Wan is located 50 miles north of San Francisco, in Sonoma County, California.

Together, the figurines have been valued, at minimum, at $8,200.
