Did you just win the lottery? Are you kinda geek? Well then boy do I have the thing for you to spend your money on.
Marvel will be auctioning off some major props and costumes at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, (colloquially know as C2E2). Three of Marvel entertainments biggest names will be represented with a Captain America suit and shield, a Iron Man “Autopsy” suit, and the most famous hammer in the world, Mjölnir.
On April 14th, Profiles in History will be running the auction which also includes items like a Red Skull prosthetic mask work by Hugo Weaving, multiple Cosmic Cubes, and it seems like everything from Captain America. Look here to browse through the full catalog.
There are multiple Captain costumes, the screen-used version with shield is expected to get around $20,000-$30,000. The custom made three-piece suite is made of ballistic nylon. It also includes the leather mask/helmet and the iconic round shield, which is made out of resin.
The highest expected item to sell is a full-scale screen-used Iron Man Mark II suit. The “Autopsy” suit is the one that Rhodes took apart in Iron man II so he could create his War Machine armor. Profiles is expecting the fiberglass resin armor to go for a minimum of $60,000.
There is also a detailed foam rubber Mjölnir. The stunt version of the hammer is expected to sell for between four and six thousand.
If those aren’t quite up your alley, you can also get a tank. Lot 174 is the coolest in my opinion. It’s a Hydra Fastrac and it weighs 17570.8 lbs. The hero version of the tank is made of metal and a fiberglass shell that’s built on a JCB 2190, 4-wheel drive “Fastrac” tractor. In addition to the actual tank, you also get “expertly applied studio dirt and mud in the wheel wells.” I didn’t even know that was a profession. Unfortunately the vehicle is not operational and you have to sign something that says you will never use it not as a prop.
