PROPS: Guardians of The Galaxy - Star-Lord's Hero Helmet
Peter 'Star-Lord' Quill's (Chris Pratt) hero helmet from Guardians of the Galaxy. “Star-Lord used his helmet throughout the film for protection in battle, and in the vacuum of space.” These props are pretty difficult to find, especially a hero item. How did it come into the hands of collectors? “This helmet was the grand prize in a 2015 sweepstake held by Marvel and Fandango. Documentation on the sweepstake and a letter of provenance from the sweepstake winner are included.” “The two-piece light-up helmet is made of cast resin with a variety of different finishes mimicking metals. The helmet has been lightly distressed by production to simulate use. Small segments of metal tubing and mesh are incorporated throughout. The interior of the helmet is padded with foam, leather and vinyl materials, with Velcro straps for comfort. LED lights on the sides and behind the acrylic lenses connect to a lead wire and 3-pin circular connector, and illuminate the eyes with a red glow. A barcode labelled 'Marvel 42362' is attached to the inside, along with a handwritten label reading 'Hero 3'. The helmet shows light wear, such as the distressing mentioned above, but remains in excellent condition. Dimensions: 20 cm x 25 cm x 18 cm (8'' x 10'' x 7'')”
This helmet sold on September 26th, 2017 for $110,000 with the Propstore auction.
