Film props set to go under the hammer

MEGAN Fox's black leather motorcycle costume, a 5-meters-tall robot and more than 100 other props, costumes and set pieces from the "Transformers" movie franchise are going up for auction near Los Angeles next month.

Auctioneer Profiles in History said it expected the 1.45 ton Bumblebee robot from the first movie in 2007 to fetch US$60,000 to US$80,000 at the October 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 US$3,000 to US$5,000.

Joe Maddalena, president of Profiles in History, said anything worn by Fox was in great demand by collectors.

"The 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.
