Iron Man prop sells for $19,200 at Chicago auction


BY SEAN O’CONNELL

And I thought I was a big “Iron Man” fan. A movie memorabilia collector from Chicago, who wished to remain anonymous, paid $19,200 for the Iron Monger Hero Helmet and Torso Robert Downey Jr. wore while filming Jon Favreau’s original “Iron Man” film. The props, according to producers, were used for “practical, non-CGI shots,” according to the Chicago Sun Times.

The auction, held Sunday, was part of the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. Items auctioned included dresses worn by Gwyneth Paltrow to similar movie-making props. The Sun Times reports that anonymous bidders snatched up an Iron Man Crushed Mark III Helmet, which was seen in the film’s final battle for $13,200; the Iron Man Hero Mark I RT Unit, a power source that Paltrow removes from Downey’s chest, for $10,800; and the replacement Iron Man Hero Mark II RT Unit, which went for $10,200.

Eager “Iron Man” fans likely were preparing for Favreau’s anticipated sequel, which kicks off the summer season when it roars into theaters May 7. In the film, Downey Jr. resumes the role of billionaire Tony Stark, who revealed his dual identity of Iron Man to the world, and now faces the consequences. New villains include Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell, while Paltrow will be joined by Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle as Stark’s allies.

Couldn’t be in Chicago? Never fear. Unsold items will be auctioned off live from Propworx’s offices in Santa Ana, Calif., Sunday. Visit www.propworx.com for details.
