The Wink costume stands over seven feet tall and consists of thirteen components that blend together bringing the over-sized creature to life. Made of various materials including resin, plastic and foam, this is the stunt version with a static head. Although this is the "stunt" version, the costume is incredibly detailed and remains in very good condition, with only minor wear from use, including a few missing quills from the back. The large spike located at the back of his artificial forearm is detached and would need to be reattached, however these minor issues do not take away from the look of the piece. This very durable costume looks breathtaking on display and would be the centerpiece to even the most advanced collection. The head was made during production and may not have been used during filming.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Blue Harvest Clapper Board
This is a "Blue Harvest" clapperboard used during filming of Return of the Jedi location filming. The piece shows signs of heavy use and still featuring markings from its final shot.

The false film title "Blue Harvest" was used during the early production stages of filming Return of the Jedi and this would be the most sought after "Blue harvest" production artifact for collectors. This exact clapper board can be seen in behind the scenes footage on the DVD, with screen matching marks and scratches.
Back To The Future 2
Pit Bull Hoverboard
Probably the most recognized props from Back to the Future 2 are the hoverboards. There are five styles of hoverboards seen on screen during the filming - Mattel, Pit Bull, Rising Sun, No Tech, and Question Mark.
This hoverboard is the one that Griff (Thomas Wilson) uses to pull his three gang members over the water in the town square. It is by far the rarest of the hoverboards to obtain. It is also the largest and heaviest when made of wood. One of the toughest details to find on a Pit Bull is the thrusters - the two small engines under the back. Like the footpads, there was a limited number of these created, so they were moved from board to board as the Pit Bull was replaced due to damage.
There were several of each hoverboard created from either wood or styrofoam, depending on if the actors were carrying it, flying, or doing a stunt. This particular board is made of wood and has two holes in it, at two diagonal positions. Those holes were used to mount the metal cables that hung from the cranes.
This is the coolest of all the hoverboards, and can be the centerpiece of a Back to the Future collection.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
Darth Vader Helmet
This is an incredibly rare and extremely recognizable piece. This original screen used Darth Vader helmet looks amazing with the clear cast face mask that was made for display.

Prior to that, he had purchased it from another Special Effects person who obtained it from a stage hand after the helmet received a blow during the saber fight and only the top helmet part was exchanged (since the face was still intact). The helmet is very complete, and has a crack on the left side. The surface has several scratches, small cracks, and chips (note some in the middle of the brow) from screen use.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
This is one of the distressed leather jackets worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger as "The Terminator" throughout the movie. This particular jacket has a nice level of distress and bullet holes, and would have been used during the middle of the movie. Several jackets were created with various levels of distress from very clean all the way through to shredded at the end of the movie. The bullet holes on the back of this jacket look similar to the pattern seen when the Terminator is saving Sarah Connor at the hospital. As he runs to the elevator, the T-1000 is shooting at his back, and several "squibs" are remotely exploded to look like bullets hitting his back. The inside of the jacket shows remnants of where these squibs were attached, along with some red studio blood staining on the inside of the jacket.

Green Goblin's Mask
This mask was screen used at the end of the film when on display in Norman Osborn's (Willem Dafoe) secret room. A special mounting bracket was installed inside the helmet so it could be held in place on a pedestal. This mask may have also been used in the first film.Designing the mask - Sam Raimi (Director), James Acheson (Costume Designer), and Neil Spisak (Production Designer) wanted to honor the look of the Goblin in relation to the comic books, however they also wanted to make it seem as though it came from the real world. James Acheson: "The Goblin looks slightly different than his comic book incarnation. We started off being very faithful in terms of the face, but that changed quite radically when we decided to give up on the idea of a prosthetic face." In the end, what they retained of the Goblin was a fixed maniacal screaming face, which in return became part mask and part and part helmet for the Goblin to ride on the rocket glider.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
"Trust Him" Advance Key Art
Artist: Chris Hopkins
Medium: Acrylic, ink, charcoal, photo base on board
Dimensions: 30" x 40"
This is the full-color, original painting, which became the legendary key art for the "Advance" - "Trust Him" movie poster one-sheet for the George Lucas produced & co-written and Steven Spielberg directed film "Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom" in 1984. Remarkably only the upper-half of the image was utilized to create the Advance one-sheet movie poster. But shown here is the full-size original painting, in all of it's glory, as rendered by the talented artist Chris Hopkins.
Hopkins was given just 10 days to complete this piece, which was created using original blown-up studio photographic-imagery, which was permanently applied to a piece of art-board, and then meticulously painted over with airbrush and acrylic mediums.
This memorable hand-rendered painting has been used as collateral art for a host of other Indiana Jones promotions, and is one of, if not the most iconic images of archaeologist, relic hunter, explorer, adventurer, and hero - Indiana Jones.

Back To The Future 2
Probably the most recognized props from Back to the Future 2 are the hoverboards. There are five styles of hoverboards seen on screen during the filming - Mattel, Pit Bull, Rising Sun, No Tech, and Question Mark. There is an additional orange Mattel hoverboard used by the other small child that was moving along the sidewalk with the little girl - however it is never seen on screen. There were several of each hoverboard created from either wood or styrofoam, depending on if the actors were carrying it, flying, or doing a stunt. The actors were rigged up with harnesses and swung from cranes over the water to give the illusion of flying.
This hoverboard is the one that Marty (Michael J. Fox) borrows from the little girl on the sidewalk. It was used throughout both Back to the Future 2 and 3. What is interesting about the Mattel hoverboard is that two different surfaces were created. Initially, a lenticular type material was used for the background color, which has a 3-D type look to it, with the other details hand applied. After a few of these were created, it was deemed more cost effective to create the more common "photo" Mattel hoverboard. The surface is a very detailed one to one picture of the original lenticular hoverboard surface.
Other details that are key to the Mattel boards are the footpads and the hole in the top for the handlebars. Many were created without the hole, assuming that detail may not be seen on screen. Additionally, in order to save costs, not all boards had a footpad. As filming progressed, hoverboards were scratched and broken, which led to them being literally thrown away. Before throwing them away, the footpad was removed and installed on another board.
This styrofoam lenticular Mattel hoverboard is very lightweight. It was used for shots of Michael J. Fox with the hoverboard screwed to his shoe, and was also used for shots of Michael handling the hoverboard.

The Wild Wild West (TV)
James West Costume
The Wild Wild West ran for four seasons from 1965-1969, and featured the adventures of two Secret Service Agents working for President Ulysses S. Grant. The two men were James West (Robert Conrad), former Union soldier and current man-of-action, gunman, and womanizer. His partner was Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin), a former con man and master of disguise and invention. Together, the two fought various menaces aimed at the United States and President Grant, as well as investigating other Federal crimes. This is one of the costumes that Robert Conrad wore during the show as "James West". It is complete and contains the following items:
- Jacket - This blue jacket is custom made for Robert Conrad with several very unique features. First, the right sleeve has a split going about halfway up, with hooks, a snap, and a strip of additional cloth sewn in. This was customized in order for Jim West to have his spring loaded pistol that would pop out of his sleeve and into his hand. Second, inside the back of the jacket is a cloth holder for a knife. Lastly, there is a small cloth holder under the lapel used for his lock pick. The jacket is in good condition for it's age but has some discoloration on the shoulders and sleeves as shown. This is not very visible when viewing from the front on a mannequin. The Western Costume tag on the inside of a pocket is labeled "Bob Conrad". It also has an American Costume stamp inside one sleeve.
- Pants - This is a pair of custom made pants to match the jacket, with adjustable elastic stirrups on the bottom so they would fit appropriately. The Western Costume tag inside the pants states "Bob Conrad". It also has an American Costume stamp in the waistband.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
Tie Fighter Pilot Helmet
This is one of 14 Tie Fighter Pilot helmets made for the first Star Wars movie in 1977. Even though only 14 were made, some may have been thrown out and some were reused for "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi". Some were repainted white and used as AT-AT Driver helmets in "The Empire Strikes Back". The helmet was created at Andrew Ainsworth's Shepperton Design Studios in Feb/March of 1976, and comes with documentation from Mr. Ainsworth verifying it's authenticity.
The helmet has a very interesting history. The previous owner was about 9 years old when he accompanied his father to various filming sets in 1983. During another production, one of the crew members presented it to him. After receiving it, he wore it when playing with his friends, and thankfully was very careful with it in order to preserve its condition. Much older now, he has passed it on to our collection here.

Back To The Future 2
Marty's Future Nike
When Doc and Marty arrive in the year 2015, Doc asks Marty to put on clothes similar to Marty Jr. The first thing he puts on is the self lacing future Nikes. These shoes were originally created for a scene that was never filmed. It was first planned that Marty would take part in a non-gravitational game similar to racquetball. Because of this, some of the shoes were created with several lights mounted in the shoe so that it would assist in the illusion of hovering over the game floor. When it was deemed too expensive a scene, the light up shoes still got a small part when Marty initially puts them on along with when Marty walks in the dark. During the movie, when the laces are tightened, the Nike logo on the front lights up blue (as you can see in the picture). You get a chance to see all of the lighting on the side of the shoes on screen when Marty is walking on the sidewalk by the DeLorean in the dark.
It is believed that this may be one of only a couple of surviving light up shoes. This is the only known shoe to exist that has been wired to a control box to light again as it was on screen, except for one at Nike headquarters. Most of the remaining shoes were not created with the lighting capability.

The Matrix Reloaded
According to an interview on whatisthematrix.warnerbros.com with Dan Bronson, the Costume Supervisor on the film, "...the coat that Keanu [Reeves, Neo] wears is made in seven different fabrics for very specific different scenes, due to the way each fabric flows and moves." This particular coat is a smoother cloth, and has no lining on the bottom half. Compared with some of the other heavier coats, this would allow better movement. There are several shots in the movie where Neo's coat seems smoother. As well, in some of the behind the scenes documentaries on the 10 disc Ultimate Edition, a member of the CGI team points out how they used one of Neo's coats to get every small detail. The cloth on this particular documentary looks like this coat. In another couple of behind the scenes shots, Neo has wires hooked up to him and the coat looks like a smooth one. Lastly, when promo shots were taken, Neo's coat again looks very smooth in the pictures.
This coat has several small cuts around the waist and inside the pockets. There is one large cut across the front below the waist area that was repaired during the film. The coat is in great screen used condition. This coat was made for the character "Neo", though we do not know if Keanu Reeves or a stuntman wore it. It may have been used in both The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, as they were filmed back to back.

In the late 70's, Christopher Reeve became the embodiment of the Man of Steel. Though he had predecessors, his name became synonymous for the Man from Krypton, sent to Metropolis to protect Earth. In 1995, with the tragic announcement of Chris Reeve's spinal injury from a horse accident, rendering him paralyzed in a wheelchair, fans' ongoing hope of Mr. Reeve once again donning the suit were shattered. As a result, Superman costumes again soared, now fetching up to six-figure prices in auction. As witnessed in the fine arts world, it did not take long for the forgers to see an opportunity and today, several fake suits, manufactured long after filming - yet copied from the real thing, therefore identical - are known to have ended up in private collections, sold as "originals". Many of the die-hard collectors are aware of that fact, which naturally makes a purchase choice in today's market a rather difficult one, especially since hardly any of the suits documented in public sales seemed to be accompanied by any meaningful provenance. In fact, the standard "COA" often reads that the suit was given to "x" person by an employee from the costume department with no direct link that would allow to trace it back to a credible or undisputable source.
ScreenUsed is proud to offer to the public a rare original Christopher Reeve Superman bodysuit with his trademark belt, accompanied by an actual Certificate of Authenticity by Warner Bros. Studios. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only original Superman costume ever to be released to the public with full Warner Brothers Archives sanctioning. The studio's unique DNA encoding system allows for matching the suit with its corresponding COA at any given time, eliminating the risk of the valuable and authenticating paperwork ever being matched up with a replicated body-suit. To adequately display the suit, it was dressed on a custom muscular 'heroic' mannequin with custom sculpted Christopher Reeve head (painted in silky white to direct the emphasis towards the suit, not the sculpture) and completed with a replicated set of cape and boots.

Both, Jason and Freddy have since their first outings (1980/1984) enjoyed a loyal following by fans & collectors alike. Many years in the making, "Freddy vs. Jason" ended up being the most succesful film for either of the 2 hugely popular horror franchises ("A Nightmare On Elm Street" & "Friday, the 13th"). A very important costume lot for horror collectors, this represensts a fantastic and incredibly rare opportunity to obtain the most important artifacts pertaining to both main characters of this blockbuster.

Headless Horseman's Hero Costume
This is the complete hero costume worn in the beginning of the movie by Christopher Walken as "The Hessian Horseman" (Headless Horseman).
- Upper Garment - This is a very intricately designed top with lots of detail and distressing to make it look worn. It zips in the back, and has extra padding inside in areas to make it look more muscular. This piece has the residue left where a label was placed that matches the labels in the pants and boots.
- Pants - These pants have some distressing to them in order to make them look worn. There are some buttons and hooks which may have been used with braces or suspenders. The label inside states "CHRIS W HESSIAN #1".
- Belt - The belt, complete with buckle, is distressed and scratched up from screen use.
- Gloves - Both gloves were made for Christopher Walken and have his name typed onto the label on the inside of both.
- Sword Scabbard - The sword scabbard is the only stunt piece to this ensemble. It was used by Ray Park in the stunt scenes later in the movie. It is made of a soft leather and bends easily without a sword inserted.
- Cape - The cape is the hero cape used at the beginning of the movie by Christopher Walken. Compared to capes from the end of the movie, it is not at distressed, though it does have some rough edges around the bottom. The inside red lining is more vibrant for the beginning of the movie as opposed to later scenes.
- Boots - Both boots have been distressed with a wax like coating to look well used. Each has a small label inside with "CHRIS-W" written on them. All buckles are intact.
- Spurs - Probably the rarest pieces of this costume are the original spurs used by Christopher Walken on his boots. These are made of metal with a rubber spur, along with a leather strap with metal buckle. When the camera pans to a close up of him walking away, you can see the spurs bend if you go frame by frame, so they may have never even made a set of metal spurs.

The Fifth Element
Futuristic Police Costume
This is a complete head-to-toe police uniform from the Luc Besson Sci-Fi cult film "The Fifth Element". Assembled on a mannequin it stands about 6 feet tall, 26" wide, 20" deep, and weighs less than 50 pounds. It is made of a canvas type textile material, fiberglass, plastic, metal & rubber.
This particular helmet has a rare opening visor that is functional (mechanically opens via a wire) and the round white front panel lights up (via a battery pack embedded in back of the costume), as does the red light on the shoulder. It also comes complete with all the accessories seen in the film, such as the massive shoulder gun, baton and police shield. The numbers on the helmet and shield match up to each other, and also represent the police squad in the space port. This particular gun (blue) was used for the police costume when Zorg was demonstrating his ZF-1 weapon, and also used by the ships crew towards the end of the movie.

Frank the Rabbit's Head
This is Frank the Rabbit's head used on screen by James Duval as "Frank". This is the exact one seen on screen and matches perfectly down to the marks on the face and head, chipped teeth, and bent ears. It is incredibly difficult to find props and wardrobe from this fantastic cult film. Along with a ScreenUsed COA, this piece also comes with an impeccable signed letter from the Vice President of Post Production on Pandora letterhead.

Tyler Durden's Red Jacket & Pants
This is the red leather jacket and dark blue pants that Brad Pitt wears as "Tyler Durden". He is wearing these together in the infamous first fight scene outside the bar. He then wears it later with a different pair of pants. The jacket is in great screen used condition with several marks on it and a broken button. We understand that this jacket and pants are the only ones personally selected by Brad Pitt and the Costume Designer (Michael Kaplan) from a vintage 70's clothing store - so there were no duplicates. The red jacket was replicated for other scenes, but this is the original. Along with our ScreenUsed COA, it comes with a signed COA from 20th Century Fox Archives (one for the coat and one for the pants).

X2: X-Men United
This is a resin claw with metal reinforcement used on screen by Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. It comes with a signed letter of authentication from the Producer of the movie, along with a COA from ScreenUsed. We have noticed a small hairline crack in one of the tips by the knuckles, as can be seen in the close up photo. This is normal with a piece like this that was screen used.
