So you don’t know what to ask your wealthy friends and family members for for Christmas. Well, how about Indiana Jones’s whip or fedora from Temple of Doom? Or how about that light saber used by Mark Hamill in the original Star Wars movie? Now you know why I said wealthy friends and family, because no ordinary person is going to be able to afford these things, but if you are one of those who can, the auction is December 11. There are some things for ordinary mortals too (though still starting at $1000 for most), but don’t expect to get some of the more famous stuff including the above mentioned items for less than 100 grand, and no- the chocolate bar won’t work as payment. 😛
The place to find more information is Profiles in History and what to look for there is Hollywood Auction 33. Besides the two films above by Mr. Lucas, you can find items from films like Harry Potter, Gremlins, Men in Black, Terminator, and many more. What are you waiting for? Go and check it out. Be sure to get something to catch that drool first… The first bunch of items are photos, but after those the good stuff starts. I downloaded the catalog at 24 megs, but you can view the lots on the web too. Indiana Jones starts at lot 368. Star Wars at 346.

The Indy whip would be on my list. I have a licensed Fedora…
Ah, but your fedora never graced the head of Harrison Ford.. 😀
All the better, I know how much I sweat in mine. 😉
Film scripts from Star Treks 2-5 (maybe not 5) $400-%600. Jor-El’s outfit from Superman. 3PO’s head. AH, yes… Picard’s phaser rifle from First Contact. I always liked Marty’s jacket from BTTF 2… where is that? Ok… that will do. 🙂
And the first edition Ian Fleming Bond novels wouldn’t be frowned upon either.
You do wish for a lot of things, don’t you? 😀
I do hope you have someone in mind to deliver, or just address it to Santa. 😉
like the new theme!
I like it, too! But isn’t it fun to dream?!
Never stop dreaming. 🙂
