The Prop Store of London is holding another huge auction with hundreds of unique movie props available!
Normally when production of a film is complete, the props, miniature models and sometimes costumes are thrown away or destroyed. But more often than not, people try to save them and keep a little piece of cinema history alive.
The collection of these items has become a huge business. Actual screen used items can sell for anything up to tens and even hundreds of thousands of pounds depending on their size or just their iconography within their respective film.
Items are available to buy all year round from the infamous Prop Store of London but every so often they gather up a huge collection and hold an auction. This year’s collection is certainly as impressive as previous years.
If you wanted a more recent prop, there’s Peter “Star-Lord” Quill’s helmet from the original Guardians of the Galaxy. This is an actual piece that was worn by actor Chris Pratt. However, such a high profile piece demands a high price and bidding is expected to reach the £30-50,000 range.
How about something a little larger to make a talking point within your home? You could bid for Judge Dredd‘s Lawmaster motorbike from the 1995 film starring Sylvester Stallone. Price? A mere £15-20,000!
If your budget can’t stretch that far, there are always the smaller but still significant pieces. How about a set of crew t-shirts from Star Wars: Rogue One, yours for just over £200.
I could sit here and list dozens and dozens of items that are available for sale. For a film buff like myself, I could drool over the catalogue for hours. If only I could win the lottery!
The Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will take place at the London Odeon BFI IMAX this September 26th, from 12:00 pm.
If you wish to bid on an item or just casually peruse their inventory, you can find full details including an interactive online catalogue (and a traditional PDF version) at The Prop Store of London.
