You can bid on the items in person, via phone or through the Prop Store’s online auction platform.
The Batpod — the truck-flipping motorcycle featured in “The Dark Knight Rises” — is expected to sell for $80,000 to $105,000 in “non-functional ‘rolling only’ condition” with no fluids, battery, fuel tank or throttle controls. Tim Lawes, general manager of the Prop Store, tells Bloomberg:
“If somebody wants to make it work at a later stage then they probably can. Most of the bits are already there.”
The props, costumes and production materials included in the auction are from 160 well-known television shows and films, including “Jaws,” “The X-Files,” “The Goonies” and “Jurassic Park.”
