Top 10 Movie Memorabilia

What film fan doesn't want some Movie Memorabilia to hang on their wall or display in their geek-den? And today I made my dream wish-list of movie memorabilia! My only rule in making this list is the prop can't be huge, like the Millennium Falcon, but of a practical display size, such as the size of a full body costume or smaller. Otherwise, anything goes!

The topic of today's article is definitely thanks to Invaluable.com, who contacted me with the idea for this post. Invaluable.com is the place to find must-have collectibles and one of a kind pieces; new memorabilia and movie props is being added almost daily to their website, and they boast an entire section dedicated to Star Wars! If you want to check out some movie memorabilia, as well as various others things, definitely check them out.

Now, let's get this list started! And the list is not in any order.

Darth Vader Costume
At the top of my most-wanted Movie Memorabilia list is the Darth Vader costume worn by David Prowse in Star Wars (1977). While finding a place to display it would not be easy, it is the costume of one of my favorite characters in all film, and one of the most imposing and iconic costumes in the history of film. 

The One Ring
There were various props of differing sizes that were used for the One Ring during the Lord of the Rings trilogy. However, the one I would want is the version that is used during the close up shots with the actors. Even more specifically, the one dropped into Mount Doom.

Indiana Jones' Hat and Whip
Ever since I was a kid watching the Indiana Jones films, I have wanted the hat and whip used by Harrison Ford during Raiders of the Lost Ark. Other than Lightsabers, no other movie prop defines my childhood like Indy’s Hat and Whip!

Neo's Sunglasses from the Matrix
Aside from the trench coats and guns, there are few props directly associated with the Matrix except one thing: the sunglasses. The Matrix's sunglasses might be impractical in the real world, but Neo's sunglasses would make an excellent display piece!

Iron Man's Arc Reactor
Iron Man is not a film with many smaller recognizable props. However, the first Arc Reactor created by Tony Stark to escape from the terrorists is unforgettable piece from the film that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

R2-D2 and BB-8
With the exception of Lightsabers, there are few things in Star Wars more iconic than the droids! And R2-D2 is easily the most iconic droid from the film. Who doesn't love this plucky-willed droid? And now BB-8 from The Force Awakens is sure to become yet another iconic droid in the Star Wars franchise. Both of the props used for the droids would make excellent pieces in any collection.

Captain America's Shield
Captain America has been my favorite superhero since childhood, and what superhero movie prop is more recognizable than his Shield? While many props are made for the shield, the heavier one used during close ups, held by Chris Evans, is the one I'm sure anyone would prefer.

Han's DL-44 Blaster
A classic weapon from my favorite character of all-time, Han's DL-44 Blaster is a must for a Star Wars fan like myself. In fact, you can read more about it from Invaluable.com, specifically the one used in the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

The Tenth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver
While the TARDIS from any of the seasons would be cool, who has room for a large blue box? Instead, David Tennant's Sonic Screwdriver, my favorite one from the franchise, is the ultimate piece of Whovian memorabilia!

Anakin and Luke's Lightsaber
Lightsabers are one of, if not, the most iconic props in the Star Wars franchise. And no other Lightsaber would make a better collector's item than the very first Lightsaber seen during the original Star Wars. But of course, any of the Lightsabers from the Original Trilogy, or Kylo Ren's Lightsaber from the Force Awakens, are at the top of my list.

  2. This is brilliant, and I think my list would look a lot like this. Only with Aragorn's sword added in. Because I love that sword
