1) The Riddler's cane from Batman Forever (lot # 17)
This 1995 film features the introduction of Robin, Batman's sidekick, to the movie franchise as Batman faces off against two classic villains, Two Face and The Riddler. The lot features one of the actual canes used by Jim Carrey in his role as The Riddler. The cane shows some signs of wear, having been repaired lightly with tape and glue near its handle. This slight damage, though, actually serves as a degree of authenticity, as it is common knowledge among franchise fans that most of the Riddler canes were broken during the filming of the movie. This lot is estimated to sell for between $2,000 and $3,000.
2) Hand drawn concept sketch from Alien Vs. Predator (lot #10)
The 2004 film Alien vs. Predator tells the tale of a team of scientists who, while conducting an archeological dig on an island in Antarctica, find themselves in the midst of a war between two incredible creatures. Here we have one of the original, hand drawn concept sketches used in the pre-production stages of the movie. The sketch shows the side view of a helmet from one of the Predators. It is labeled with its concept number and pre-production phase, and is signed by the artist. A must have for any true science fiction buff's collection, the bidding for this item will open at just $1.00.
