Ludicrous Film Memorabilia

When we think about the big business of cinema, it tends to be with regard to film budgets and box office performance. These days it’s not unheard of for Hollywood projects to have budgets in the hundreds of millions, and we’ve grown accustomed to successful blockbusters making several times that. Just this week, Vox wrote a report demonstrating that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on pace to become the highest earning film ever in the U.S., and could approach Avatar’s astounding $2.78 billion record for global sales.

Indeed, this is the biggest of big business with regard to the cinema. But popular films don’t only deal in big money on a global scale or with regard to total ticket sales. They also inspire some pretty hefty purchases from die-hard fans, who will often shell out significant chunks of pay just to acquire some memorabilia or souvenirs relevant to favorite films. And lucky for us, Lottoland has pointed out some memorabilia prices that will absolutely blow your mind. Let’s take a look at the highlights.

1970s Kenner Darth Vader Action Figure

vader

Again, it’s an action figure. But like any other collectible figure or doll, this original Vader piece had grown more expensive with time—if, that is, you can find an unopened and untouched one. Such a piece can apparently cost you upwards of £1,700 on Ebay!

Original Stormtrooper Helmets

It’s no secret that the costumes of Star Wars have become iconic. The Stormtroopers and Darth Vader have some of the most recognizable outfits in film villain history, and various individual characters have been boldly dressed as well. Wookiepedia’s lineup of Padmé Amidala’s wardrobe reveals that this single character had quite literally dozens of different outfits, on which the studio spent a huge chunk of its budget. But nothing tops the original Stormtrooper helmets among Star Wars to the point that one of these can cost you between £40,000 and £60,000.

Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber

Luke

This one’s a little different, as it’s a genuine film prop rather than a collectible item. But it’s still worth mentioning for the remarkable price attached: this Jedi weapon was sold at an auction for a staggering £240,000 (and after Luke’s lightsaber, presumably a new prop, played a significant role in The Force Awakens, it’s a good bet this original could now sell for even more).

Star Trek Enterprise Model

trek

This one’s also more of a one-of-a-kind prop than an ordinary collector’s item, but it demonstrates that Star Wars isn’t the only franchise that caters to super fans who will spend extraordinary amounts for a piece of the action. The actual model used to show the Enterprise in Star Trek The Next Generation apparently went for just under £400,000!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

chitty

Arguably the most famous car in cinematic history, it’s no wonder that this old-fashioned racing car commanded a hefty fee. This one’s actually more interesting because of who paid said hefty fee. Evidently it was Lord of The Rings trilogy director Peter Jackson who put up about £550,000 for this piece of cinema lore.

The Ruby Slippers

slippers

Weapons, models, and cars are among the most coveted items from films, but it’s hard to think of a much more iconic item than the red ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard Of Oz. That these even exist somewhere out in the world almost seems akin to myth becoming reality. A fan who paid about £450,000 for them evidently felt the same way

Naturally, the list goes on and on. But this should give you an idea of just how incredible the value can be both of original collectibles and authentic props used in film.

Just imagine what Rey’s staff will be worth in another 30 years….

Pepsi Goes ‘Back To The Future’ With Pepsi Perfect Collectible Bottle

3

Pepsi is going ‘Back to the Future’ with a new promotion.

Fans of the iconic film trilogy will no doubt remember Marty McFly walking into a diner to purchase a Pepsi in ‘Back to the Future II’ and walking out with a Pepsi Perfect. While Pepsi isn’t launching a new brand, it is releasing a new limited edition bottle October 21, 2015 to let fans have their own Pepsi Perfect bottle.

1

“Fans have always been a little crazy about it,” says Lou Arbetter, PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing, about the scene in the film where a Pepsi Perfect is delivered to Michael J. Fox’s character through a futuristic pneumatic tube, “and so we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty travelled to the future, to this month, and wanted to actually come out with the product.”

The bottle is a limited edition collectible — Pepsi is planning on only making a run of 6,500 bottles — and will be sold only while supplies last. Those looking to purchase the bottle can do so for $20.15, not quite as pricey as the $50 that Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown gave Marty in the film. The bottle will be sold online, though Pepsi recommends fans check out the company’s social media pages closer to the Oct. 21 launch date to know exactly where they can purchase it.

While it won’t be coming with a new Pepsi Perfect flavor there will be more traditional Pepsi Made with Real Sugar inside for fans to drink out of the 16.9-ounce bottle.

“We’re fans of this popular trilogy, and just generally, if you work at Pepsi you’re fans of pop culture. The brand has made its mark in pop culture frankly since Michael Jackson moonwalked. We’ve been dancing in and around pop culture for a while,” Arbetter says. “So we look at this as another opportunity to have a little bit of fun.”

Pepsi will also be distributing 1,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles ahead of its general release during New York Comic Con this week to fans dressed as Marty looking to “complete their outfit,” Arbetter says.

Pepsi is part of a growing list of companies joining in on the fun of the original film’s 30th anniversary. In January, Nike announced that they would be releasing a version of its self-lacing Nike Mag shoes that were featured in Back to the Future II later this year, while Reston, Va., will be renaming itself “Hill Valley” in honor of the film from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25. Movie theater chain AMC will be hosting all-day screenings of the trilogy Oct. 21 and Amazon will be streaming all three films to users of its Prime Video subscription service throughout October.

A PEZ Movie Is In Development

pez-1024

PEZ Candy Inc. has entered into an agreement with Envision Media Arts to develop a feature animated movie based on their world-famous line of candy dispensers.

Cameron Fay (The Three Stooges, Brother in Law) will pen the screenplay for the film, which clearly earmarks it as being a comedy. Lee Nelson (Pathfinder) and David Buelow (Celeste & Jesse Forever) will produce the PEZ movie.

“PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike,” EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson said. “With Cameron Fay we’ve created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many.”

A long-cherished childhood tradition, PEZ is an Austrian company founded in 1927 which added heads (Santa Claus, Mickey Mouse, etc) to their dispensers in order to appeal to children during the 1950s, shortly after the product started marketing in America. Soon hunger for the multi-flavored candy was equalled by a fervor to collect the many pop culture icons embodied in the dispensers, which have included characters from DC and Marvel Comics, Peanuts, Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, The Wizard of Oz, NASCAR and the rock band KISS. Over 3-billion PEZ candies are consumed in the U.S. alone each year.

MONDO Announces 2015 San Diego Comic Con Exclusives

Best known for its popular limited-edition posters, MONDO the boutique arm of the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain has exclusive artwork available for attendees at San Diego Comic Con (July 8-12). Yet its booth in the San Diego Convention Center will also have new action figures, vinyl records and other merch for the geek crowd.

The exclusives include:

1-9ac6e3cb39

Ant-Man poster ($85). Mondo has a variety of pieces for sale as well as some licensing announcements in store, but one of the items of note to superhero fans will be a holofoil screen print (limited to 175) inspired by the new Ant-Man film (in theaters July 17). Artist Kevin Tong said he wanted the design “to show Ant-Man’s scale, the intensity of his transformation, and really just trying to make a poster as fun and dynamic as the movie.”

untitled

Ninja Turtles figures (price TBD).

After Mondo dipped its toes in the toy business beginning last Comic-Con, this summer brings the first in a new series of toys based on the original TMNT comics of the 1980s. First up is Leonardo, who stands 11 inches tall and comes with a bunch of accessories including weapons, a blue mask to match the cartoons and a red mask from the comics. Also on display will be the upcoming figures of Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.

IMG_9387a_608a55bb-b682-4776-b8e6-2881b966db89_1024x1024
First Hellboy statue ($200). Before he became a comic-book hero and a movie star played by Ron Perlman, Hellboy was a black and white sketch done in 1991 by creator and artist Mike Mignola. Mondo’s created a polystone statue of this first pass at the horned hero — with the name “Hellboy” emblazoned on his belt — plus a variant color version done by original Hellboy colorist Dave Stewart. You can see him in San Diego but can’t take him home yet — interested parties can preorder Hellboy now at Mondo’s website. (Monster fiends will also want to stop by the booth to check out an upcoming Godzilla sculpture as well.)

635712870614004325-STAS-cover-disc

Superman vinyl ($25). Those with record players and a place in their heart for Shirley Walker’s theme composed for Superman: The Animated Series will want to pick up a die-cut single. Artwork for the cover is by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, and the record is cut in the shape of Superman’s iconic “S” shield — folks can choose between red vinyl or Kryptonite green.

635712869666879757-Aliens-Front-Cover

Aliens soundtrack ($35). This one’s special for fans of the late Oscar-winning composer James Horner, who died last week in a plane crash: A vinyl soundtrack of his score for James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi flick Aliens. The deluxe edition features more than a dozen musical cues new to vinyl plus five bonus tracks, and a cover design by artist Killian Eng. “I wanted the alien to play a big role,” he said, “but at the same time incorporate its shape into the materials of the space station, almost like it becomes the station itself, keeping the marines in a steady merciless grip.”
