Later this month, an exemplary collection of screen-used movie props, outfits, castings, and behind-the-scenes Hollywood souvenirs goes up for auction in London. I asked Brandon Alinger, one of the antiques specialists at Prop Store, which is running the auction, where all these goodies come from. “This is what we call our ‘multi-consignor’ sale,” Alinger stated in an email. “The pieces have been sourced from a variety of different places, including personal collectors, studios and production companies, market personnel, and rental houses.” Alinger also states his team has completely researched and validated each item– 600 in total– so these gems are legit.The live auction is on September 26 in London, but you can bid over the phone or online. You can see a lot of the props face to face too at London’s Odeon BFI IMAX. Have a look at some choice pieces from traditional sci-fi, dream, and action films listed below. Pricing in the brochure is in British pounds, however we have actually transformed them to great ol’ American greenbacks here. A caution: prop gathering is a rich-people organisation, and the size of these numbers will make your eyes water.Xenomorph egg, Aliens
