For sci-fi and comic book movie fans, it doesn't get much better than right now. This week has brought both Dark Knight and the Watchmen trailer, and later this month, the Profiles in History auction house in Hollywood is opening up the prop vaults from just about every classic film over the last, oh, fifty years and isn't stopping until everything is gone, gone, gone! Marty's hover board? Check. Capt. Kirk's phaser from Search For Spock? Yep. The actual holy grail from The Last Crusade? Oh yeah! No shitty replicas here-all are the actual props used on screen, and they can be yours. But those are just the beginning.

There aren't a lot of bargains, as you might expect. Top-shelf merchandise like this is expected to fetch big collector prices. But the catalog is almost too good to be true-check out 34 highlights in the gallery below, and a few extra special favorites here:

Forget any exercise you could possible think of-it won't come close to the strength of using Bruce Lee's own actual forearm strengthener. Possibly some Dragon sweat still on it.

No, It doesn't hover but I couldn't give less of a damn. If I can't have the shoes, I want this. Too bad it's expected to fetch $30-$50k.

I love scotch. But I'm pretty certain I would love it even more if I was drinking it out of this ultra-dystopian Blade Runner tumbler. Plus this one's one of the few sub-$1,000 items.

Just one of the countless things the originals have on Lucas's new films, the costumes in the original Star Wars were incredible. Especially the Imperial dudes-stylish in only the way a space fascist can be.

Hmm, I'd love to have Jack's axe just for Ss&Gs. I'd be too interested in quoting what I found to be the most unintentionally funny bits of his dialogue and laughing in such a way it'd scare the local yokels, though. Amused they gave an explanation why the T-Rex's jaws look like he just had lunch. But why do Threepio's feet look so worn? I dunno which amuses me more about the Frank mask, though- the fact it's up or the person wanting it the most on here!
