They’re selling the 17 foot Bumblebee model, at auction it is expected to fetch up to $80,000. Alongside him will be a number of Megan Fox outfits and over 100 props from the Transformers movies. Bids can be made over the internet or phone via Profiles in History.
Auctioneer Profiles in History said it expected the 3,200 pound (1.45 ton) Hero Bumblebee robot from the first movie in 2007 to fetch $60,000 to $80,000 at the Oct 8–9 auction.
The motorcycle costume worn by Fox as Mikaela Banes in the blockbuster 2009 sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, along with her shorts and tank top, have an estimate of $3,000 to $5,000.
Joe Maddalena, president of Profiles in History, said anything worn by Fox was in great demand by collectors.
“‘Transformers’ made her a star and I expect her costumes to perform very well at auction. The 17-foot Bumblebee robot speaks for itself … it’s such an amazing spectacle and a pop culture icon that I expect bidders to go crazy,” Maddalena said.
Bids can be placed in person at the auction in Calabasas, outside Los Angeles, by phone or live on the Internet.
