While “Back to the Future 2” may have overestimated engineers’ abilities to build a hoverboard by 2015, fans can still get the next best thing. The prop board from the movie is being auctioned off in London this fall.
The hoverboard is just one of over 300 props up for sale at the Vue Westfield movie theater in London, the Belfast Telegraph reports. Other props include the leather outfit worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Terminator 2,” a golden ticket from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and a miniature Batmobile from “Batman Forever.”
The items will be up for display during a two-week exhibition by Vue Entertainment and Prop Store, concluding with the auction on October 16. The auction is the largest sale of film memorabilia in the history of the United Kingdom, and is expected to bring in over one million pounds, which is more than $1.7 million dollars.
The hoverboard and golden ticket are expected to sell for 15,000, or a little over $25,000. The Terminator suit is valued at 22,000 pounds (nearly $38,000) and the miniature Batmobile at 20,000 pounds (a little over $34,000).
For those looking for something a little cheaper, a “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace” film crew jacket is available for 80 pounds ($137), which still seems a bit pricey for the movie that brought the horrendous Jar Jar Binks into existence.
