If you call yourself an ‘80s lover, a shoenista, and a hoverboard enthusiast, there can’t be many movie props you’d rather own than Michael J. Fox’s Back to the Future Part II light-up Nikes. And if that’s the case, then you’re in luck, because they’re going up for auction.
If that’s not exactly the confluence of terms you’d use to describe your own self, worry not, for the Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction has lots of other goodies for sale, too, from some of our favorite genre films and TV shows. Here’s some of the many, many highlights from more than 600 lots ...
-Laboratory Chimp Autopsy Head from 28 Days Later
-Set of Clavius Base Decals from 2001: A Space Odyssey
-Immortal Warrior Mask from 300
-Frost’s “Peace Through Superior Firepower” t-shirt from Aliens
-Full-size Evil Ash Cable Controlled Puppet from Army of Darkness
-Julie Newmar’s Catwoman Costume from Batman, the 1966 TV series
-Millennium Falcon Building Light-Up Model Miniature from Blade Runner (Ridley’s Scott’s knowing nod to George Lucas)
-Conan’s Atlantean Sword Production Master from Conan the Barbarian
-Peter Quill’s Hero Helmet from Guardians of the Galaxy
-C-3PO Special Effects Head from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
And there's so much more, which you can peruse in the auction trailer below, or over at the London-based Prop Store’s website. Of course, the Sept. 26 auction at Waterloo’s BFI IMAX (or live-streamed online, if you can’t make it) is for serious collectors only -- well, maybe seriously rich only, as in those with extra thousands to spend on movie props. Those BTTF Nikes alone are expected to garner between £25,000 and £35,000 (around $32,390-$45,346 USD). Great Scott!
