With a little money, anyone can become Thor’s hammer. It is well known that props from Hollywood films are auctioned off to collectors for large sums after shooting. For example, the original Luke Skywalker lightsaber from Star Wars: A New Hope movie was supposed to sell for $150,000 to $200,000. Now a cult item from the Marvel film series with Chris Hemsworth is to be sold. Yes, you heard it right. Thor’s hammer is for sale.
During a feature in Weekend Today, the auction house’s CEO, Brandon Alinger, spoke about the sale of the iconic items loved by movie fans. Among other things, the original Thor hammer will go for sale now. The prop is expected to sell for between $100,000 and $150,000. “There’s a lot of interest in it because it’s a rubber stunt version,” The hammer is meant for the actors to swing it around so they don’t hurt anyone.”
But that’s not the only item for sale. Brandon also presented a model of an X-wing fighter from the first “Star Wars” film in 1977, which generated a lot of interest. Forbes lists the model with a potential retail price of between $500,000 and $1 million. In total, items from over 600 productions will be auctioned off at the auction. They are expected to total around $9 million in sales.
