Yup. It sure was and still survives to this day as one of the three left in the world (and the only screen-used DeLorean in private hands). Also, it was pretty damn expensive too. How expensive, you ask? It costs car collector duo, father and son, Bill and Patrick Shea of North Central Massachusetts a whopping $440,000 back in 2011. So, as I was saying, it was actually a VW buried beneath and the reason being, the director needs a DeLorean that could take the punishment of unforgiving terrain for the scene where Marty Fly had to drive the DeLorean Time Machine across the sparsely vegetated desert. Obviously, the lackluster DeLorean DMC-12 won’t be able to take the beatings and so, it was decided that a dune buggy set up was the way to go.

What you see here is a Millennium Falcon and nope, it wasn’t parked among the wastes of the desert planet Jakku. Neither was it in Rub al Khali desert near Abu Dhabi, or Hollywood backlot. No, wait. It was actually on a backlot, just not in stateside. In fact, it was uncovered to be parked on the backlot of Longcross Studios outside of London, just off the M3 freeway. I said ‘was’ because, it was spotted way back in June and as you know, Google Earth only updates the satellite images between 1 and 3 years, and so, for all we know, it may have already moved between now and then.

We have seen our fair share of ‘disgusting’ costumes, but for some reason, this purported prop from Syfy’s Channel Zero TV series, a suit covered in its entirety with artificial human teeth, is unexplainably nauseating. It far surpasses the grotesque level which the William Birkin Stage 1 Transformation cosplay suit has set. Well, at least, William Birkin Stage 1 Transformation cosplay suit is awesome while being grotesque at the same time. The teeth-covered suit, or prop if you like, is actually the horror anthology TV series’ The Tooth Child (played by Cassandra Consiglio), which was kind of an iteration of Tooth Fairy (of sort). Continue reading Artificial Human Teeth-covered Suit Is Truly A Stuff Of Nightmares
If you are still in the process of cobbling together a real working The Dark Knight’s motorcycle AKA Batpod, well, we have news for you. You can put away your tools cos’ the real deal is going under the hammer. Which means, if you have piles of cash to burn, you may have shot at owning it and save yourself the agony of building one. The two-wheeler with ridiculously fat tires that seem almost inhumanly possible to steer you see pictured here was one of the six real working Batpod made for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and was mainly driven by stunt rider Jean-Pierre Goy. So you can be assured that it is rideable, though its road-legality is questionable. Continue reading Batpod From The Dark Knight Trilogy Is Set To Go Under The Hammer
It takes a geek to see the details and in the case of the car you see here, it takes a true blue Back to the Future geek to realize that it is actually Griff Tanner’s Future BMW as seen on Back to the Future II. This is the same car that created quite a buzz many years back when it was restored and now, the original BBTF fan who did the restoration is letting it go on an auction over at iCollector.com. So, yes. You can buy this iconic movie car to add your growing BTTF collection and oh, it does drive, albeit very slowly, but sadly and quite obviously, it won’t fly, much less hover. Continue reading Faithfully Restored Griff Tanner’s Future BMW from Back to the Future II Goes Under the Hammer
the opinion on 2013 blockbuster Pacific Rim was divided, but i guess its domestic takings to date pretty much speaks for the movie: it was not as fantastic as many had anticipated it to be. sure, the effects were fancy, but the storyline just kept everything stifle up. overwhelming number of flashbacks and one too many Gone With The Wind moments. gosh. it was a dread watching the story build up part, if you ask me. anyways, still, i considered myself a fan, for the sake of the Jaegers. just for the Jaegers. however, if you are way bigger fan than me, then the Pacific Rim Auction, jointly organized by Prop Store and Legendary Pictures, is the place to get your Pacific Rim fix. over 200 props and costumes, of which some pretty mundane (read: borderline lame) and some are actually pretty cool, are being offered as we speak. Continue reading A Galore Of Props And Costumes From Pacific Rim Hits The Auction Block, Lovable Mite Included
the beauty of eBay is, it is a place where the weird, fun and bargains can be found, but the Velociraptor Cage From Jurassic Park here is most definitely not a bargain, however, it could falls under the weird things you might want to grab for your pad, as a conversational piece or whatever. we can’t say how much this cage will eventually set you back at, as it is going under the (electronic) gavel right now and has since garnered 153 bids, and stands at a little under 100 grand at the time of this writing. this massive velociraptor crate was used in the opening scene of Jurassic Park (seriously, i need a refresher – 20 years is a long time, y’know) and it comes standard with a full-size velociraptor prop, which was apparently used as a display at the film’s premier. Continue reading Velociraptor Cage From Jurassic Park
any Star Wars fanatic who wants to make themselves feel even more terrible, can prepare to drop 9,800 quids (around US$15,700) on this Life-size Star Wars AT-ST Walker Replica – one which, though claimed as “life-size” at 16 feet (about 4.9 meters) by its seller, isn’t really life-size if you were to believe the “specs” as provided on the Star Wars wiki’s All Terrain Scout Transport page of 8.6 meters (or 28 feet). anyway, that’s perhaps why this wood and metal replica is destined to be a prop for showing off on your front yard (it’s fully weatherproof, so it is perfectly fine for it be exposed to the elements) or inside your insanely high ceiling abode, rather than one functional mechanical monster from the galaxy far, far away, which also means you can’t actually hide it, much less ride it. it is a replica, a prop – remember?

it may not have the ‘firepower’ of the Kuratas, but the Aliens Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader Walker Replica you see here is the closest you can get to an exoskeleton suit that you can actually buy without wiping out your bank account clean. though, like the Kuratas’ weak and near-harmless firepower, it does not actually helps you to power load anything, much less fight off a disgusting, acid spitting queen alien. handmade by one Dustin Kiska (Props2Powerloaders), this life-size replica of the hydraulic power lifting machine featured in the 1986 sci-fi horror flick, Aliens is crafted from a combination of materials, including wood, styrofoam, cardboard et cetera, in Kiska’s in Albuquerque, New Mexico Continue reading Aliens Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader Walker Replica
