In the case of auctions for film memorabilia, there is no shortage of people with money who want a movie story and hold a prop in their home to prove themselves. Historically, the highest prices of movie recruits came from more common films with super-branded Sci-Fi films such as Star Trek and Star Wars, which brought in a decent amount for high-profile props. For example, one of the highest amounts paid for movie props, if you open it for all genres, is $ 4.6 million for James Bond's Auston Martin from the movie Goldfinger and only shy 4.1million dollars for lead falcon plug from The Maltese Falcon .
Before 2017, the values for Sci-Fi props were much lower than that. Before the most expensive Sci-Fi movie was ever auctioned, a miniature model of Starship Enterprise-D was released. The model was used for the show Star Trek: The Next Generation and for the Star Trek Generations movie. It picked up $ 576,000 at a Christie auction in 2006. Auctioners had originally estimated that the bid would lead to about $ 30,000 and was shocked at how quickly the bid rose. However, in 2017, the high point was blown out of the water when someone bends all the way up to Bonham's auction house, to an astounding $ 5.3 million in honor of owning the robotic suit used to depict Robby Robot in 1956's cool Sci-Fi classic Forbidden Planet . The winning bid was not just the highest amount paid for a Sci-Fi prop, but the maximum amount was paid for any movie plug.
Other particularly expensive, though not recording, Sci-Fi props include a model of a Star Wars TIE Fighter from the 1977 Star War Episode IV: A New Hope . It picked up $ 402,500 in an auction in 2008 and knocked out the former Star War-related record of $ 240,000 for Luke Skywalkers lightsaber. The complaint with the Star Wars film tool extends beyond props, a Panavision R-200 camera, personally used by George Lucas during the filming of Episode IV sold at auction for $ 625,000.
Although Star Wars and Star Trek, with their cult sequels and big fan bases, the charts of the most expensive Sci-Fi gear sold at auction, other Sci-Fi movies still pile lots of love. A full-scale model of the T-800 (skeletal metal terminator seen at the beginning of Terminator 2: Judgment Day ) was sold at auction for $ 488,750 — we are confident of the iconic red eye resolution and massive metal designs were what was The sealed contract and one of the DeLorean DMC-12s used in Back to the Future was sold in 2011 for $ 541,000.
