Original Stormtrooper Helmet from Star Wars: A New Hope
This helmet is believed to have been one of the original six Sandtrooper helmets made for the 1977 blockbuster film that began the Star Wars phenomenon. The Sandtroopers were the first helmets made for the film and were featured in scenes on location in Tunisia as well as additional scenes on the Elstree soundstages. Post production, the helmet was gifted to someone who worked on the original film and at some point underwent a subpar restoration. Later, renowned Star Wars restoration expert Gino Sabatino, who for many years researched and worked directly with original Star Wars helmets via Lucasfilm, the Lucasfilm Archives and official prop licensees, stripped the helmet down to its original muted green vac-formed components to undergo a complete and more faithful restoration. Its current state represents what the helmet would look like today if more carefully preserved over the past 45 years.
Chris Evans Original Captain America: The First Avenger Hero Prop Shield
The “Vibranium” Captain America shield, built from machined aluminum that is anodized red and blue and features genuine leather hand straps, was used by Evans in the 2011 Marvel Studios blockbuster film. The high quality of this example would likely mean that it was used in close-up shots, showing only minor signs of wear.
A collection of original on-screen used Harry Potter props including: an original hero prop “Nimbus 2001” broomstick that was used by Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy in the 2002 installment Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; an original “Elder Wand” hero wand prop that was personally used by Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort during the 2010-2011 filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I and Part II. The Elder Wand, which is arguably one of the most important items in the franchise, was elaborately designed by the film crew prior to its story and significance being developed; and a prop wand that was used by David Thewlis as character Professor Remus Lupin in the 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
