Stan Winston Auction Has Awesome Movie Memorabilia You Can’t Afford
Any movie auction that has a giant T-Rex head from Jurassic Park for sale is good in my book, so I’m excited to share details on an upcoming auction around the legendary Stan Winston. Terminators, Predators, Jurassic Park dinosaurs and more are all up for grabs, but my personal favorite is the screen-used T-800 modeled after Arnold Schwarzenegger. That would look awesome next to my giant Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Scorpion King foam bust! Unfortunately, I don’t have a spare $100K to burn on toys.
The event takes place on October 8th and 9th, and you can place your bids at this site.

Profiles in History is proud to be entrusted by Mr. Winston’s family to handle the sale of artifacts that sprung from his magnificent imagination, as they present 85 lots of props, costumes and set pieces-some of them enormous in size-from films including the Jurassic Park, Terminator and Predator franchises, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence and many more. This unprecedented sale will be part of Profiles in History’s Hollywood memorabilia auction taking place October 8-9, 2009. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these items will fund the new Stan Winston Visual Effects Scholarship at the University of Southern California Film School.
Highlights from the 85 lots from Stan Winston Studio, with conservative estimated sale prices include:
An original hero screen-used T-800 endoskeleton from T2 3-D: Battle Across Time ($80,000-$120,000), an original full-scale T-800 endoskeleton from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines ($60,000-$80,000-please note-this was used for computer graphics reference for the making of Terminator 3.
