STORY: Ever fancied driving a droid? Or putting your head between the jaws of a T-Rex?
Movie fans who want to relive a slice the action from their favourite films will be able to bid on a treasure trove of memorabilia in an auction organisers expect to reach in excess of six million pounds (7.5 million USD).
One of the key pieces is a stormtrooper helmet from the original Star Wars film, 1977's A New Hope, expected to fetch up to 180,000 GBP (224000 USD).
Despite the thin padding and dodgy visor of the original costume, actor Syd Wragg looked delighted to be reunited with it on Wednesday (September 18) for the first time since he wore it on set. His name, still visible, is marked in pen on its interior.
Although there was no bang when the pin from the "Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch" was removed, sellers hope for an explosion of interest in the "Monty Python" piece as the British comedy celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
"In true Monty Python style, this is actually built from a ball cock from a toilet system," CEO of Prop Store, Stephen Lane, said while holding the pseudo-relic.
Prop Store, who assembled the collection, have put around 250 of the 900 lots on display at an exhibition in London's BFI Imax.
The two-day live auction is set for September 30-October 1, with the public free to view the lots until then.
