·1-min read

Original Statler and Waldorf puppet heads from The Muppets are among the original props and movie memorabilia going under the hammer at the upcoming Prop Store auction in Los Angeles.

The auction will be broadcast live over three days from 29 June to 1 July.

Brandon Alinger, Prop Store COO, commented on the upcoming auction: "Prop Store has handled tens of thousands of original props and costumes at auction, but this auction marks the first time we have ever brought original Muppet pieces to the public.

"Statler and Waldorf are iconic characters that have appeared across so many Muppet titles, it is a thrill to have these two examples we have in such wonderful shape and ready to go home with the highest bidder. These Muppets are just one example of the over 1,300 lots of original prop and costume materials in this month's live auction."

Highlights among the lots include the Statler and Waldorf heads, with an estimated price of $40,000 - 60,000 (£28,500 - 42,800), a Terror Dog Stop-Motion Puppet from the original 1984 Ghostbusters film - estimate $6,000 - 8,000 (£4,200 - 5,700) - and a Green Full-Body Gremlin Puppet from Gremlins 2: The New Batch, which is expected to sell for between $5,000 and 7,000 (£3,500 - 5,000).
