Looking for a space helmet from the movie Alien? Or maybe a Spartan soldier’s costume from the movie 300? As of this writing, those are just a couple of the many offerings at The Prop Store of London, which has offices near London, England (of course), and Los Angeles, California. The prices were a bit steep for the average person, but that’s likely to be expected for highly-sought items.
Prop Masters, located in Kent, England, offers plenty of props, but they also have replicas, promotional material, scripts and more. Movie fans will love this site. While looking over the Prop Masters site, I saw they had for sale animatronic puppies from the movie 102 Dalmatians and a Trojan mace from the movie Troy. It also looked as if there was a solid collection of fake newspapers that had been used in movies. The prices looked pretty reasonable to me.
Your Props isn’t exactly a selling Web site. The site itself proclaims to be a free online museum where prop owners can show off what they have. Still, this is a great site for looking up items, and you could always try to contact the owner of a given item and see if they’d be willing to sell it. There seemed to be a lot of Star Wars props on this site, including weapons and armor and helmets.
This is the blog for Jonas Nough, a collector himself and a big fan of movies and collectibles. This is a solid site for beginning prop collectors, as you can ask questions and interact with Jonas and other regular visitors. If Jonas doesn’t know the answer to your question, he can find out. This blog isn’t updated often, but there’s still plenty of useful information and links to be found here.
If you are a collector of movie posters, this is the place to go. This site is always bringing in new posters for sale, all vintage originals. I’ve noticed they have a decent supply of modern movie posters for sale, but they seem to really specialize in older films. Spend some time looking around and enjoy.
This is another place that sells film props. The site sported not only movies, but props from some television shows as well. They had quite the selection of suits worn in the Boston Legal show from TV. Also, this site offers a signed certificate of authenticity with each item it sells.
The folks who run this company buy their products directly from television studios and movie production companies. Not only do they sell props, but they also offer rentals of some items. If you want a spear from The Last Samurai, these are the people to see. They must have a connection somewhere, or found a sale at some time, because they have lots of stuff from The Last Samurai.
This is a site just for you Star Wars fans. If you want to find out about collecting Star Wars memorabilia, especially items actually used in the movies, this is a great place to start. The Star Wars Collectors Archive has been around since 1994, and this group of folks have plenty of advice to offer. This isn’t specifically a place for buying Star Wars merchandise, but this site will definitely get you on the right path.
This is another fine site for buying props and wardrobe items used in movies. One of the features here I really like is you can do a search by the name of actors or actresses. So, if you want to buy something worn by Tom Cruise in a movie, it’s easy enough to do. I see for sale a backpack Cruise wore in Mission: Impossible II. And there’s Hermione’s mail used by Emma Watson Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone!
Last, but far from least, is the Web site for The Movie Props Association. Yes, it’s an official organization for collectors and dealers. Not only can these people help you find a particular item, but they also will help to make sure any item is authentic. And you can become a member, too.
