    the actual mark I armour from the iron man movie.

    so to make this into an actual thread, have you ever been near/seen/touched any props from movies or stuff like that?

    I was near all the Movie Autobot vehicles (except Jazz) at the Arclight theater when the film opened.

    I've also, at various times in my life, been within touching distance of the General Lee, the Keaton Batmobile, and the Ecto-1 (maybe the 1A...I can't remember).

    Cool pic, BTW.

    I went to an exhibit at the Met in New York and they had several movie costumes on display. If I recall correctly they were:

    Superman
    Spider-Man [spider-man 3]
    Batman [The Dark Knight]
    Mystique [X-men 3]
    Iron Man Mark 2 suit from Iron Man

    And I think they also had Linda Carter's[sp?] Costume from they live action wonder woman show and Michelle Phiffers[sp?] Catwoman costume from Batman Returns.

    Unfortunately photography was not aloud at the exhibit so I could not take pictures. 'Twas cool though.

    I got to touch a stunt boob for a Jenna Jameson flick...
    right before security touched me with stunt tasers.

    for a celly pic, that image is awesome. watched the movie and didn't see that level of detail on the Mk. 1. but your shot looks great.

    i would love to touch the 89 batmobile, then the Nolan Tumbler.

    Have I ever. I used to make props for Hollywood films, and I still have a nice collection of props I picked up back then. (I've sold off over half of them since then to continue to build my TF collection as Lucky Draw figures aren't cheap.)

    Some of the cooler stuff I have/had or have touched includes:

    -The Idol from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    -The Orb from Brisco County Jr.
    -I actually restored one of the two surviving Rocketeer Jetpacks.
    -Dozens of Bat gadgets.
    -Tons of Star Trek props. (my favorite from my collection are real bars of Gold-pressed Latinum.) :) 
    -I worked on 750 full suits of armor/props for Starship Troopers.
    -I use to own of the castings for the original Hindenberg Zepplin model from the '70's movie.
    -Army of Darkness Deadite Masks and costumes. (one of which I got "Ash" to sign.)

    Wait, what? Which railway station is that? Looks a bit like London Waterloo. I might have to look out for this next time I'm down there! (assuming it's still about!)

    As for actual props, probably one of the model X-Wings from Star Wars at the Millennium Dome exhibition.
