Lot #12 - ALIEN (1979) - H.R. Giger-designed Special Effects Mechanical Alien Head
There is no better example of horror design that the work by H.R. Giger on Ridley Scott's 1979 classic 'Alien'.
Bag yourself a mechanical alien head for an estimated £40,000 - £60,000.
Lot #63 - BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II (1989) - Marty McFly's (Michael J. Fox) 2015 Jacket
We know from the demand for original Back To The Future movie posters that the movies are a firm favourite.
Who can forget the scene in BTTF 2 when Marty McFly's jacket automatically self-dries and then adjusts to fit him?
You can don Michael J. Fox's jacket for an estimate of £12,000 - £15,000.
Lot #73 - BATMAN (1989) - Production-Made Batman (Michael Keaton) Cowl
With the benefit of hindsight, it is hard to believe that Michael Keaton was considered a controversial choice to play Bruce Wayne / Batman in Tim Burton's 1989 super-hero classic.
This fantastic black foam rubber cowl is a really special piece and it is yours for an estimated £8,000 - £10,000.
Lot #190 - CREED (2015) - Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) "Street" Costume Display with Fedora and Accessories
There is no better loved 'rags to riches' (and back again) character than Sylvester Stallone's 'Rocky Balboa'. The 'CREED' movies have proven themselves worthy successors of the first few fantastic Rocky films, with Stallone showing himself a better actor than some give him credit for.
Here is an original Rocky costume from 2015's CREED. You can slip-on the iconic Fedora hat for an estimated £6,000 - £8,000.
Lot #271 - FORREST GUMP (1994) - Forrest Gump's (Tom Hanks) Country Road Costume
If running (or ping pong - or chocolates) are more your thing than boxing than who better to look to than Forrest Gump. An amazing performance by Tom Hanks (has he ever been in a bad movie?).
This iconic costume was used in scene 767 of the movie and you could slip on Forrest's chinos for an estimated £4,000 - £6,000.
Lot #278 - FURY (2014) - Don "Wardaddy" Collier's (Brad Pitt) Full-size Body Dummy
David Ayer's 2014 World War II tank crew drama is a raw - but touching- depiction of the dangers to armoured crews in battle. Brad Pitt gives a superb performance as tank commander First Sergeant Don 'Wardaddy' Collier.
This full size Brad Pitt was used towards to the end of the movie and if the only thing missing in your life is a full-size Brad Pitt, he can be yours for an estimated £6,000 - £8,000.
Lot #410 - JAMES BOND: SKYFALL (2012) - James Bond's (Daniel Craig) Tuxedo
Every man looks great in a tuxedo, but, one man in particular - James Bond - always looks his best. For 2012's Skyfall 007's tux was made by Saville Row tailor Tom Ford.
Midnight blue actually looks 'blacker than black' under artificial light and as here, many high-end tailors will recommend it to the discerning gent. With Daniel Craig stepping down after Bond 25, 'No Time To Die', we imagine this lot will sail past it's £10,000 - £15,000 estimate.
Lot #672 - STAR WARS: PREQUEL TRILOGY (1999-2005) - Full-size Production-made R2 Unit
When the Ford Fiesta breaks down, what better way to fix it than with your very own astromech droid?
Made from fibre-glass and resin, this R2 unit from The Phantom Menace can be yours for an estimated £25,000 - £35,000.
Lot #553 - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN SERIES (2003-2017) - Captain Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) and Angelica's (Penelope Cruz) Wig and Bandana
Strange to believe that the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are based on the Disney theme park ride, rather than the other way around. We also aren't sure how much Johnny Depp flexes his acting muscles during his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow - but he does need a wig.
This wig was used by Depp in 'Dead Man's Chest' and then adapted for Penelope Cruz in 'On Stranger Tides'. You could also pop it on for an estimated £6,000 - £8,000.
Lot #831 - TOP GUN (1986) - Pete "Maverick" Mitchell's (Tom Cruise) Bomber Jacket
With the long awaited sequel now due to hit the big screen in July 2021, there is bound to be a lot of interest in one of Tom Cruise's iconic jackets from 1986's 'Top Gun'.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell's bomber jacket appears on one of the teaser movie posters for the upcoming "Maverick" movie and there has been much interpretation of the different patches shown in the new film. This 1986 original will probably soar past its £12,000 - £16,000 estimate.
Prop's Store's December 2020 concludes on the 1st and 2nd of December.
