Original 1960s Doctor Who Tardis Going Under The Hammer
Plus Star Wars And Back To The Future Memorabilia 

Dr Who Tardis AuctionEwbank’s, Surrey’s leading auction house, is preparing to transport film fans to galaxies and planets far, far away as it puts memorabilia from Star Wars and Doctor Who on sale. 
 
A full-size Tardis, standing 217cm tall, is going on sale at the Entertainment and Memorabilia auction on May 31, with a guide price of between £8,000 and £12,000. It is one of two which were constructed at Shepperton Studios in 1965, for the film, Dr Who and The Daleks.

One was destroyed in production of the movie, and the one going on sale at Ewbank’s was used at the premiere of the film for the cast to emerge from onto stage. It has also been signed on the inside by Jennie Linden, who played Barbara, one of Doctor Who’s granddaughters in Dr Who and The Daleks.

 
It was removed from Shepperton and later re-built by the BBC props department for use at Children in Need 2009 at the Leicester Space Centre. It was sold on eBay as part of a charity auction in 2011 and has been in storage ever since.
 
Ewok Star Wars PropFor Star Wars fans, always one of the most popular franchises for buyers at Ewbank’s entertainment sales, there are opportunities to snap up a rare poster and an Ewok head. 
 
The original ‘Empire Day is May 20’ poster, advertising the London premiere of the 1980 film, The Empire Strikes Back, has been valued at between £1,000 and £2,000. It is paper, on period cardboard, to provide support for display, and measures 13.5 x 22 inches.
 
An Ewok head, assembled from original production items from Star Wars’ Return Of The Jedi, carries an estimate of between £6,000 and £9,000. 
 
The items were obtained from Stuart Freeborn, the original creator of the Ewoks. The head consists of an original latex Ewok face, original eyes, original internal components and original latex ears. The set of teeth were cast from original Ewok teeth and there is a Velcro closure on the back.
 
The head has been assembled to match the style of the originals using original reference material, paints formulated for foam latex work and covered with original Ewok fur from Freeborn. 
 
Star Wars Poster AuctionThis piece has been assembled by Tom Spina very sympathetically to the work of Freeborn and is as close to an original screen used Ewok mask as possible, and comes displayed on a custom-made stand.
 
Alongside these intriguing pieces of movie memorabilia, is a rare pair of Nike Air Mag trainers, the type worn by Michael J Fox in the iconic film, Back To The Future. The limited edition and highly sought-after shoes, UK size 8, have a pre-sale guide price of between £18,000 and £28,000.
 
The multi-coloured, self-lacing, custom-made shoes are pair number 20 of 89, created by Nike in 2016, in exactly same way as the first ones which were commercially released, in limited quantities, in 2011.
 
Ewbank’s is accepting consignments for the Entertainment and Memorabilia sale until May 24. The team is also accepting entries for the next Fine Sale in June, as well as for forthcoming Toys and Models auctions in May.
 
The team at Ewbank’s is available for free sale valuations from 9am to 5pm, Mondayto Friday at the Burnt Common Auction Rooms, just off the A3 near Guildford.
