Alien Memorabilia

We at Nate D. Sanders Auction House (http://www.NateDSanders.com) sold the ultimate original Alien memorabilia, HR Giger’s original space jockey from the Alien movie in 1979.  It sold for $31,250.  This is the first time that a space jockey has come up for auction.  This Alien memorabilia was obtained by Nate D. Sanders directly from Peter Beale, 1970’s managing director at 20th Century Fox Productions and the executive in charge of the production of Star Wars, Alien, The Omen, Julia, The Rocky Horror Picture, etc.  HR Giger personally gifted Peter Beale with this HR Giger art space jockey, aka Alien memorabilia.

Description of this fabulous piece of Alien memorabilia:

Scarce model from the 1979 film “Alien” of the famed “Space Jockey” character aboard the “Derelict Spaceship” (aka Alien memorabilia), designed and hand-painted by H.R. Giger. One of the most recognizable scenes in sci-fi cinema, the haunting Space Jockey aka The Pilot, found dead aboard the alien spaceship, was conceived and designed by famed Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor and visual effects artist H.R. Giger, whose work on “Alien” won an Academy Award in 1980.

The enormous Space Jockey (aka Alien memorabilia) and cavernous spaceship are quintessential Giger, renowned for human-machine melded beings called biomechanoids; the walls of the spaceship appear to be either vertebrae from a once living creature, or cogs in a vast industrial machine system, or perhaps both. Space Jockey is fused into his command station and wears either a mask, or has a elephantine trunk extending from his face. In the “Alien” set — which was built based on this model — Space Jockey sits 26 feet tall, dwarfing the characters of Kane, Dallas and Lambert who find him dead, his rib cage blasted open, serving as foreshadowing to what awaits the crew later in the film.

So pivotal was the scene — establishing the world of the Alien creature and serving as ground zero for the film’s mythology — that Ridley Scott insisted upon its construction, despite the enormous cost of building the life-size (or larger than life) set. Space Jockey so enthralled the audience of “Alien”, that the character would even go on to serve as a critical and central story point in Scott’s “Promethus”, the “Alien” origin story released in 2012.

The Alien memorabilia model is reportedly one of only three known to exist and comes from the collection of Peter Beale, 20th Century Fox executive who was given the model by Giger and whose LOA accompanies the Alien memorabilia piece. The original mold was intentionally broken into smaller parts to be used by the technicians who constructed the set, so the remaining models are the only extant original sculptures of the scene. This Alien memorabilia model measures 43″ wide x 36″ long x 16.25″ high, hand painted in tones of grey, brown and black by Giger. Space Jockey is fused into his pilot seat, which swivels around on a circular platform. The swiveling piece can be removed and measures 13.5″ long x 10.25″ high x 4.5″ wide. Entire model weighs over 47 lbs., glued to a painted sheet of plywood. A few chips to the resin, otherwise in near fine condition. One of the finest Alien memorabilia items to be sold at auction.

Mark Hamill’s Screen-Worn Hero Pants in the Original 1977 ”Star Wars” as Luke Skywalker

Screen-worn ”hero” costume pants worn by Mark Hamill in his career-defining role as Luke Skywalker in the 1977 epic film ”Star Wars”, the first in the groundbreaking trilogy. As one of the top-grossing films of all time, George Lucas’ first film in the successful series won six Oscars, among many other awards. In a galaxy far, far away, Hamill donned these iconic pants as the Jedi Knight of all Jedi Knights, wearing the costume pants throughout much of the film. Sand-colored ”cotton drill” Levi’s pants are purposely distressed to display wear, with dirt to back right pocket and in spots to front of pant legs. In fact, in an accompanying article, Mark Hamill said of the pants, ”By the way, those pants I wore were just bleached Levi’s with the tag still in them.” Pants measure 29” waist x 37” in length with two 6” slits up each side. Customized by the famous London costumier, Bermans & Nathans, original tag sewn to inseam reads: ”Bermans & Nathans / 40 Camden St., / London N.W. 1” tag with a ”Mark Hamill / 10490 Luke / Star Wars” printed in type beneath it. Very good condition overall. Also with tags attached from both Christie’s, where the pants were originally auctioned, and Sotheby’s, from its 1998 auction.  Sold for $60,000.
