Under the hammer: Leonard Nimoy, in his trademark tunic, has his gun drawn as Spock
From Star Trek to The Ten Commandments, some of the most iconic props in Hollywood history are expected to go under the hammer this month.
Memorabilia from dozens of films, including a full-scale alien from the Aliens films and dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, will be sold at 'The Hollywood Auction' in California on December 15.
Included in the sale is James Bond's suit, as worn by Pierce Brosnan in The World is Not Enough, and the tunic (and ears) worn by Spock in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which is boldly expected to go for more than 75,000.
The iconic Spock tunic was worn by Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek as the mixed human-Vulcan first officer.
Complete with original rank braiding on the sleeves, the piece has been locked away since 1968 – but the colour is still as vibrant as ever.
It was won by a viewer who entered a competition to design a costume for the cult Paramount TV show and has been kept by them ever since.
Spock's pointed screen-worn ears, used in Star Trek: The Modern Picture, could set bidders back 1,250. They are made from foam rubber and measure just two inches square.
Also up for auction are The Tablets
of Stone used by Charlton Heston when he played Moses in the 1956 film,
The Ten Commandments.
The tablets come with a letter of authenticity from the creator, Paramount Studios scenic artist A.J. Ciraolo.
He made the tablets to be slightly irregular with craters so they appeared to be carved with God's 'fire bolts'.

Inside the interior pocket tag is typewritten: 'James Bond 3 – Pierce Brosnan'.
