And everyone wants it!
A prop metal arm, which is the only existing piece of the robots from 1984's Terminator, is going up for auction on July 17th. Heritage Auction Galleries expects it to garner at least $15,000.
Heritage's Doug Norwine said:
"It's from the private collection of Shay Austin of Los Angeles who was an assistant art director on the movie, and she's kept it for over a quarter-century. No one was saving props for their future value as memorabilia in those days, and that's why original items from this classic film are so hard to find."
Who knows, the entire fate of humankind could rest on the right bidder buying this piece and keeping it safe from those who would use it for nefarious ends."
Ha! Shay searched for any remains of the destroyed robots while on set.
"After the explosion I ran up with the special effects crew to see what was left," Austin said. "We started picking up the pieces and I picked up the arm. In the year we shot, no one was thinking about keeping this stuff, but I tossed the arm into a box with some other leftover props, and then into my storage."
