Attention, all you hardcore movie and television fans out there—especially those with, shall we say, deeper pockets—if you’ve always been itching to have a piece of real Hollywood history perched upon your mantle piece, or hanging on your wall, now is your chance. Imagine one of those chestbutsters from the Alien franchise (or even Captain America’s shield!) hanging above your fireplace. Sounds cool right? If you have the means, you can make it happen, because The Prop Store, which has branches in both the UK and Los Angeles, is having a massive auction on hundreds of items of movie memorabilia, including tons of beloved titles from the past quarter century of film and television.
Among the highlights of this auction are the head of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and a prototype Slimer model miniature from the original Ghostbusters; Sloth’s stunt mask and pieces of One-Eyed Willy’s gold from The Goonies. There are also tons of pieces of armor and weapons from Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, and costumes aplenty from The Fifth Element. From Jurassic Park, there is a velociraptor maquette from Stan Winston Studios, and a prop park brochure. There’s even a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch from Monty Python and the Holy Grail—and that’s just a small example of what they’re auctioning off.
Of course, no Hollywood prop auction would be truly legit without plenty of Star Wars and Star Trek items, and this auction is no different, with items ranging from Star Trek original series scripts to Admiral Ackbar’s animatic character head from Return of the Jedi. You can see a small sampling of some of the items up for auction in our gallery below! And If you want to place your bid on any of these items, head on over to The Prop Store and sign up now.
