'Transformers' Movie Props Being Auctioned Off at the End of February

Coming on the heels of the official announcement that Bumblebee will restart the Transformers movie timeline, it seems like Paramount is dipping into the archives to get rid of some Michael Bay-era Transformers props that are unlikely to ever show up onscreen again.

In service of that, Profiles in History is having a major, Transformers-themed auction at the end of the month.

According to a release from Profiles in History, the auction will feature some major props from three of the most recent installments of the worldwide blockbuster franchise to date, Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), Age of Extinction (2014) and The Last Knight (2017).

The auction (helpfully titled Transformers: The Auction) will be February 28th, on the internet only. You can reach the auction from the Profiles In History website.

Highlights from the auction include:

Each lot has a starting bid of $100 which, combined with the internet-only auctions, makes this about as accessible to entry-level collectors as you're going to get for props this recognizable, from a franchise this big.

If you want to look forward instead of back, Bumblebee arrives on Bumblebee DVD and Blu-ray on April 2, 2019, and will be available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on March 19, 2019.
