Mjolnir Prop From Marvel’s First Thor Movie Goes Up For Auction
In just a few months, Mjolnir will return to the big screen in Thor: Love and Thunder. This time, the mighty hammer will be wielded by Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. But collectors with deep pockets will soon have the chance to own the God of Thunder’s weapon of choice themselves. Via TMZ, a stunt version of Mjolnir used on Marvel’s first Thor movie in 2011 is going up for auction.
The prop is billed as “Stunt Mjolnir Hammer” and was likely used by Chris Hemsworth during the film’s major action scenes, including moments where he had to throw the hammer at Thor’s enemies. In other words, it probably doesn’t weigh very much or feature the intricate design work that’s usually seen up close. Prop Store, the California-based company running the auction, is hoping to fetch at least $100,000 for the replica.
Other props from big-name franchises will be available to bid on as well. Right now, the top item seems to be an X-Wing miniature used during production on Star Wars in 1977. The model is expected to go for at least $500,000 and as high as $1 million. Additionally, the auction will feature a Wilson volleyball from Cast Away and a Freddy Krueger sweater-and-glove combo from 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. A full-size DeLorean replica used for Back to the Future promotional events is also going on sale for anywhere between $150,000 and $200,000.
Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will take place from June 22-24 in Valencia, California. The auction will also stream online. However, those of us who don’t have $100,000 to spend will have to settle for watching Mjolnir in theaters when Thor: Love and Thunder arrives on July 8.
