Blockbuster prices!

It’s amazing to see what people will pay at auction for Hollywood movie props. We put together the seven most expensive movie props ever sold at auction. Most of these are from iconic movies and are familiar to any movie buff.

We are not talking about items you see people drag into the store on Pawn Stars. We’re talking about super high priced props that will cost you millions to own.

What is it about these props?

There’s something about these iconic Hollywood props that make people want to pay so much for. Some people collect them in the hopes that their value will continue to rise. Others want them in their personal collection and are able to afford them. I can imagine, going into a very large mansion, and seeing a Hollywood prop that you recognize from a movie would be very exciting and a great conversation piece.

If you have watched enough pawn, stars on the history channel, then you know that people will collect anything. Seeing what people bring into the store to pawn is the reason the show has been on the air for as long as it has. We have a fascination with what is the worth of these collectibles. Of course another popular show is Antique Roadshow on PBS.

That show has been on the air for decades, and is not slowing down anytime soon. The items that people bring can be worth millions or pennies. And that’s why we continue to watch in the hopes of somebody striking it rich with an item they purchased at a yard sale or found in Nana’s attic when she moved away to the nursing home. put together a list of the most expensive movie props ever sold at auctions:

Here are the 7 Most Expensive Movie Props Ever Sold At Auction

  • 7. An X-wing model used in "Star Wars: Episode 4 – A New Hope": $3.1 million

    From the first Star Wars movie that came out in 1977, almost any prop from this movie is going to be worth a galaxy

  • 6. Sam's piano in "Casablanca": $3.4 million

    From the movie that most critics put on the top 5 films ever made that came out in 1942. We hope that who ever owns the piano knows how to play it.

  • 5. Audrey Hepburn's dress in "My Fair Lady": $3.7 million

    From 1964 starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison the classic dress is iconic and hopefully displayed in a place where people can enjoy seeing it.

  • 4. The Maltese Falcon statue in "The Maltese Falcon": $4.1 million, plus an additional buyer's premium of $585,000

    From 1941 another Humphrey Bogart film featuring an iconic prop of the Maltese Falcon itself. If you haven’t seen this classic movie, you should check it out. It’s quintessential Bogey.

  • 3. Marilyn Monroe's iconic white dress worn in "The Seven Year Itch": $4.6 million

    From 1955 it’s the white dress that blows up when the great Marilyn Monroe stands over a subway grate and exposes her more than we are expecting to see. There have been lots of attempts to duplicate Marilyn, but no one ever pulls it off quite like her.

  • 2. Robby the Robot from "Forbidden Planet": $5.375 million

    From 1956 it is widely considered to be the first serious Sci-Fi film. Shot in color and featuring an all star cast that were all over shadowed by the great Robby the Robot. It looks like it uses dryer vent tubes for arms, but we can forgive that. A must see on a Saturday afternoon when there’s nothing else to do.

  • 1. James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 from "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball": $6.4 million

    From 1964 and considered to be Sean Connery’s finest Bond movie Goldfinger the car stole the show with many gadgets and of course the passenger ejection seat. It was also used in the next Bond thriller Thunderball. A prop worthy of it’s price tag for sure.
