The screen-used film prop is the holy grail of movie collecting. It doesn’t get any better than owning something that was actually used in making your favorite movie. The only way to do that, however, is usually via auction—and there’s a big one coming up with some insanely awesome props.
Next month, the Prop Store is hosting a live auction in London that includes screen-used props from films like The Empire Strikes Back, Superman, The Fifth Element, X-Men, Star Trek and many many more. These are amazing, one-of-a-kind items and they’ll be revealed in full on August 26 when the Prop Store releases their auction catalog. The auction itself will then be September 23 and if you’re interested in buying, you have to register on their website.
Of course, above you see the helmet from The Rocketeer. We asked the Prop Store to highlight a few of the cooler items in the auction, and here are a few, from Armageddon, Moon, Return of the Jedi, X2 and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Cool, right? Well, here are some more, from Poltergeist, Starship Troopers, two from The Fifth Element, and then Empire Strikes Back.
And again, these are just a few of the over 450 items that’ll be auctioned. Here are a few others, along with their estimated cost.
