Wanna own a piece of history from the Starz show, Spartacus?  With NO RESERVE and over 5000 props to bid on, you just might!

Even a fake dead body!

Lot 502: Two life-sized soldier models in costume

As production on the fourth and final season of Spartacus comes to a close in New Zealand, over 5000 props (including the aforementioned fake dead body, swords, tables and a TRUCKLOAD of other stuffs) will be put up for auction this Sunday, December 9th at 11:00 am NZ time at Webb’s auction house.

Spartacus stars Liam McIntyre as the Thracian-slave-turned-revolutionary who’s out to topple the Roman Empire. The series initially starred Andy Whitfield but bowed out due to cancer after the first season and McIntyre took over. Whitfield sadly passed away in 2011.

Fans all over the world are showing serious interest in this auction and who wouldn’t? The East Auckland warehouse where all the set pieces and props are stored is filled with furniture, blankets and trinkets (a lot of it covered in fake blood) as well as a ton of stuffed and severed animals; pretty gross and awesome all at once!

Even James Hogan from Webb’s is a bit excited.

Lot 5: torture rack/bench

“We’ve got a few heads that aren’t joined to bodies, we’ve got a little baby, a horse head – those sort of things that are a bit macabre and you get a bit of a fright when you come across. But everything else is actually really well made. The team have put a lot of effort into how the props and the sets should look. And all the wooden furniture is really well made – I’d have it at home.”

Lot 629: Large outdoor fire pit

Oh, wait…I know I said there’s NO RESERVE, but did I forget to mention that you might be able to participate in the auction online?  Webb’s stresses “overseas buyers please check with your local authorities to ensure you are able to import your item prior to placing bids.” so once you’ve done that, you’re good to go!

Lot 572: Leather folders
