Coraline was one my and my daughters favorite movie, We always love watching it again and again and we are really please to see this bit of information that Laika Studios are selling their props from their stop-motion animated films. These actual character models used in the Laika movies Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls are going to be auctioned off early next month, and you could be the one to take them home. The auction is set to take place on February 12th in Beverly Hills, California, but the props and models – over 250 of which will be auctioned off – will actually go on a three city tour before that, hitting Dallas from January 27th-29th, New York City from February 3rd-5th, and Beverly Hills from February 9th-12th.
Heritage Auctions will be presenting the props in each of those cities and hosting the auction, which will be giving the proceeds to a nonprofit arts group called The Art of Elysium that helps disabled children. On the auction website you can see more highly detailed images for just a few of the puppets and props that will be available to bid on.
