Original E.T. Animatronic Head To Fetch Up To £1 Million At Hollywood Legends Auction

Julien's Auctions collaborates with TCM to offer over 1,000 pop culture artifacts, including iconic movie props and costumes.

An original animatronic head of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is set to go to auction for up to £1 million.

Auction house Julien’s Auctions is collaborating with Turner Classic Movies to bring over 1,000 pop culture artifacts to the ‘Hollywood Legends’ auction.

Spread over four days, the auction will feature props, costumes and memorabilia from some of the most famous franchises of all time.

The centerpiece of the auction is an original animatronic E.T. head.

The head was featured throughout Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic, including many of the famous bike scenes.

The auction house has previously sold a full-body E.T. model for over $2.5 million, but the estimate for this head stands at a cool $800,000 – $1 million (£638,240 – £797,800).
