Several pieces of famous movie memorabilia fetched huge prices at the “Hollywood Legends” auction, which began on Thursday, according to TMZ.

The original animatronic E.T. head sold for $635,000, the outlet reported. The iconic character’s head was created by special effects artist Carlo Rambaldi, composed of a metal frame and foam latex outer skin. Some close-up scenes from the movie show the appearance of pulsing veins in the alien.

The Extraterrestrial,” “Lost in Space,” “Conan The Destroyer” and “Harry Potter,” according to the outlet. Juliet’s Auction and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) teamed up to initiate the auction.
