Batman movies have been fascinating and best of them all have been the Christopher Nolan trilogy that not only broke box office records but also garnered a huge fan following around the globe. The movies were all about stunts, actions, and a range of gadgetry that were used in the movies – though only props.
One such prop that caught the attention of millions of avid fans is the Batpod bike. The Prop Store in London decided to auction the movie props from the Dark Knight series and on the list alongside other props was the Batpod.
The Prop Store in partnership with the European theater chain Odeon, held the auction earlier this week at the BFI IMAX in London featuring a huge catalog of awesome movie memorabilia from a wide variety of blockbuster movies. However, it was the Batpod that wound up as the biggest sale of the day. The Batpod was sold for a whopping £3,12,000.
The Batpod is described as the ‘Hero’ version of the prop – which is in a way the version created by the production team for close-up shots and is the most detailed of those constructed.
The franchise’s third and final installment – the ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ released in 2012 and was one of the highest grossing films that year. It was also the last time we saw the Batpod and Tumbler in action. From the same movie, Batman’s Batsuit was bought for £192,000, while the costume from the 2005 ‘Batman Begins’ fetched a hefty £96,000.
