Drama: Action: Romance - The Hollywood Prop Auction
If you've ever wanted to own a prop from some of your favorite movies, now's your chance...
Profiles in History, a purveyor of Hollywood memorabialia, has recently released an auction catalog with hundreds of props from all sorts of movies.
What kinds of props? How about Spock's original blue uniform? Other items included range from production stills, original scripts and signed photographs to a full-sized T-800, Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, and Rose's suicide dress from Titanic. Unfortunately, the cheapest items start bidding around $150, and the most expensive go up to a $200,000 starting bid. This means unless you're super rich, super obsessed, or a museum, you probably won't walk home wearing Cyclops' zappy visor from X-Men.
There are plenty of other great pieces up for grabs, and here are some of my favorites:
- 8' x 10' French King Kong poster ($20,000-$30,000)
- The Energizer Bunny's animatronic head ($2,000-$3,000)
- The Ten Commandment tablets from The Ten Commandments ($60,000-$80,000)
- George Lazenby's Rolex from On Her Majesty's Secret Service ($100,000-$150,000)

Are any of you g1s going to sell your car so you can buy Christopher Walken's jacket from A View to a Kill, or, to paraphrase Dr. Jones, does this stuff belong in a museum? Let us know in the comments!
