UPDATE: The first item, a proton pack,
closed at nearly $13,000US. The second pack, a foam version used for action sequences and long shots (and thus isn’t as
good looking as the first pack) is up to $1000US.
Statue of Liberty model closed at $1200US.
UPDATE: The good folks putting on the auction sent a few pictures of one of the packs – yes, I said one. They will,
according to the email, be selling not one, but two proton packs from Ghostbusters 2, but a model of the Statue of
Liberty by EFX Studios (no word on if it walks or not – hyuk.)
I got a note today from Hollywood Vault – on Sept. 30th, one of the prop packs used in the filming of
Ghostbusters 2 will be put up for auction on eBay.
“Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) has teamed up with e-commerce company Rainmakers to auction off specially selected items from the motion picture studios historic prop and wardrobe collection. Memorabilia from such films as Ghostbusters, Men In Black, Hook, Sleepless In Seattle and Bram Stokers Dracula will be available through the hollywoodvault.net website in an exclusive online eBay auction beginning Septem ber30. The auction will be available to all of eBays 95 million users worldwide.
SPE is donating a portion of the proceeds to the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), a foundation created over 80 years ago to assist people who have worked in the entertainment community by continuously evolving to meet their health and human services needs.”
I expect this item will easily hit the thousands of dollars by auction’s end. As well, the are auctioning off
items from Men In Black and Groundhog Day.
