The Nostromo model from Alien and other movie props are going up for auction

The original 11–foot Nostromo Filming Model Miniature from Alien (1979)is going up for auction and is estimated to sell between $300k – 500k (£240k – 400k) as part of Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on Wednesday 26th August and Thursday 27th August 2020, featuring a collection of film memorabilia worth over $6 million (£4.8 million).

Over 850 unique and original items to be made available to bidders in one of the world’s largest live auctions of film and television memorabilia.

Brandon Alinger, Prop Store COO, commented on the upcoming auction.

Next month’s auction, brings one of the most significant and largest spaceships that we’ve ever handled to the block: the Nostromo from Ridley Scott’s ALIEN (1979). The Nostromo stands among spaceship icons like the Millennium Falcon and the Discovery from 2001, and this is the primary model used throughout filming. It measures a massive 11 feet in length and originally had systems for lighting and CO2 effects. The model was built and filmed in the U.K. and it’s amazing that it still survives today.  We’re looking forward to offering this piece along with over 850 props, costumes and models at Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on 26th August 2020 and 27th August 2020.
