Profiles of History is the auction site of choice to find some of the most unique pieces of Hollywood history. The first thing that caught my attention was the original R2-D2 (sold for 2.3 million dollars US) that they recently sold on their eBay auction site.
Auction 89 was a geek’s dream come true. Along with R2-D2 there were other Star Wars collectibles including original artwork from 1970 as well as Star Trek merchandise. Lot 1278 was Geordi LaForge’s tunic which sold for $5,5000 USD. There are tricorders, bridge consoles, and dozens of scripts.
What I was excited to see…
As a super-fan of Star Wars, it was all the art work, props and models from the films, including C-3PO’s left foot. If you are a fan of any science fiction, this was the auction… as long as you have a lot of money. A Footloose shooting script sold for just $400 dollars. Daryl Hannah’s mermaid tail from the film Splash sold for $20,000.
If you are a fan of movies and have a little spending extra spending cash I recommend you bookmark Profiles in History. Even a few hundred dollars can get you something really special. The next auction is the estate auction of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. I’m expecting some great Star Wars collectibles directly from Ms. Fisher’s personal collection.
