Propworx, in association with Marvel Studios, has announced The Official Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk Prop and Costume Auction encompassing two amazing events featuring props, costumes, production artwork, concept drawings and memorabilia from these fan-favorite movies.
No doubt the fact that Avengers movie which features both Iron Man and The Hulk is nearly ready (scheduled for release in the first half of 2012) will help to attract attention to the auction.
From October 13-16, 2011, Propworx will feature a preview of items from the auction at New York Comic Con at the Javits Center. Following the exclusive preview, Propworx will partner with its online auction provider LiveAuctioneers to host the online auction on October 22, 2011.
Over 225 lots of props, costumes, production artwork, concept drawings, and set pieces will be on the auction block including such notable items as the Screen Used Stunt Whiplash V1 Suit worn by actor Mickey Rourke during the entire fight scene at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix.
This amazing armour is made from a custom leather vest with the shell of a RT unit on the front, two hand whip handles and whips and features working lights on the back section that run from the top of the suit to the bottom.
The Iron Man 2 HeroSuitcase Armor is also on the auction block and was used by Tony Stark so he could change into Iron Man as needed. This screen used hero version is permanently closed and was used for close up shots and detail work.
Tony Stark's Hero Racing Suit, worn by actor Robert Downey Jr. and also used in the Monaco Historic Grand Prix scenes, includes a blue rubberized spandex coveralls with padded legs and black leather accents, a black cotton undershirt, custom made leather jacket with blue rubberized spandex accents and a pair of black leather custom gloves.
The Iron Man 2 Black Widow Hero S.H.I.E.L.D. Uniform is the hero screen used catsuit worn by actress Scarlett Johansson as Agent Natasha Romanoff when she broke her cover and revealed herself as the Black Widow.
Additional lots include the Hero Mark VI Chest RT Unit, Hero Whiplash V1 RT Unit, screen used Ironnette Costumes, the Hero "Ex-Wife" Missile, and Tony Stark's Hero Racing Helmet.
