Just Days To Go Until Our ‘No Reserve’ Rick Baker Auction

The moment thousands of film fans across the world have been waiting for is nearly upon on us. On the 29th May 2015, over 400 original and authentic film props are set to be auctioned to the highest bidder.

The auction is to be held at The Hilton, Universal City, Los Angeles at 11am (PDT); however, bidders from the rest of the world will be able to get in on the action by bidding by telephone or online via the Prop Store website. Proceedings will get underway in the UK at 6pm (GMT).

 

The Legendary Rick Baker  

The auction is a celebration of the work of Rick Baker, the acclaimed make-up artist who received the first ever Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling for his work on An American Werewolf in London. He has subsequently been nominated for the Best Makeup Oscar ten more times, scooping the prize on seven more occasions and setting records in his field.

So does that make Rick Baker the best make-up effects artist of all time? You bet it does, which is why this auction is going to be so special.

 

A ‘No Reserve’ Auction

The interest in this auction has been extraordinary, and given Rick Baker’s credits, which include movies like Planet of the Apes (2001), Batman Forever, Men in Black and many more, it’s hardly surprising.

Some of the items going under the hammer include a number of pieces from Gremlins 2: The New Batch, including principal Gremlin and Mogwai puppets; and a full-size alien Edgar Bug animatronic

character,which was made for the production of the 1997 sci-fi comedy Men in Black, which measures over 8 metres tall and is worth up to $40,000.00.

With 417 items available from 50 different productions, you can sure there’ll be something for every film fan’s taste and budget. Most exciting of all perhaps is the complete lack of any reserve prices. This means that every piece of film memorabilia that receives a bid will be sold, so you, yes you, could bag an absolute bargain!
