How would you like to lay your hands on one of Willy Wonka’s Golden Tickets or both of C-3PO’s hands from “Star Wars”? Well, you can’t….at least not right away or unless you are the highest bidder. The Prop Store will be holding an auction of movie props this autumn and although the auction is based in London, they will be bringing a display of the items they plan to offer up at said auction for display at this year’s Comic Con.
The Prop Store’s display at this year’s Comic Con International will include an original prop Marty McFly hoverboard from “Back to the Future: Part II”, with an estimated auction price of $25,700; an original Batmobile model miniature used in “Batman Forever” and estimated at $34,200; an original prop Golden Ticket from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” estimated at $25,700; Michael Keaton’s battle-damaged bat suit from “Batman” estimated at $16,100 and C-3PO’s hands from “Star Wars” estimated at $13,700.
These items – as well as many others – will be offered for sale at Prop Store’s live auction, presented in partnership with Vue Cinemas, in London on October 16, 2014.
Also on display at the Prop Store display booth (#3845) at Comic Con will be a key selection of props from the feature film “Pacific Rim”. The “Pacific Rim” items displayed at Comic Con, along with several hundred others, will be available in an online “Pacific Rim” prop and costume sale in late August.
Additional information is available at the Prop Store booth, where fans can also enter in drawings for daily prize give-a-ways, including original props and costumes.
The 2014 Comic Con will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from July 24-27, 2014.
