A prop from Terminator 2: Judgement Day is one of many up for grabs at an auction in London.Fancy wearing Han Solo’s jacket? Or perhaps donning Indiana Jones’ fedora hat? Or how about a trip on Marty McFly’s hoverboard?
Movie buffs have a chance to get their hands on a treasure trove of memorabilia from fan favourites such as “Star Wars”, “Indiana Jones” and “Back to the Future II” in an auction of film props and costumes in London this month.
London and Los Angeles-based Prop Store, which is selling the items, is putting more than 600 lots from some 150 movies and TV shows, under the hammer on September 20.
“This collection is unique and special just because of the calibre and volume of recognisable and iconic props and costumes,” Props Store founder and CEO Stephen Lane said.
The leading lot of the sale is the jacket worn by Han Solo, played by Harrison Ford, in the 1980 film “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back”, which is expected to fetch between STG 500,000 – 1 million ($A898 -1,797,545.00)
The blue-grey jacket, which was found by Lane at a costume house and screen-matched, is “the only significant Han Solo costume piece from the original trilogy ever to come to public auction”, the company says.
Other “Star Wars” items include a Stormtrooper helmet from “The Last Jedi” film as well as Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber from “Revenge of the Sith” movie.
“Back to the Future” fans have the chance to buy one of the hoverboards Michael J. Fox used in the 1989 sci-fi sequel.
A fedora hat Ford wore as Indiana Jones in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” is estimated at 200,000 ($A360,000-540,000).
Other auction items include Captain America’s distressed army rescue costume from the 2011 “The First Avenger” film as well as a Superman costume, worn by Christopher Reeve.
