If you’ve got a bit of spare cash, you might want to consider trying your hand at becoming a big-time collector of famous sci-fi movie props. Not only is there big money to be made, but the idea of being able to say you own Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber or the original Dark Helmet from Spaceballs is enough to make even the neediest nerd happy.
There’s a seemingly never-ending stream of these props and collectibles hitting the market, but truly special pieces of movie history don’t tend to come around too often. This week, though, one such item emerged on eBay, courtesy of Mike Pasquale, an Evil Dead superfan who has been painstakingly restoring the famous cabin and workshop from Evil Dead 2.
Unfortunately, Pasquale’s plans to open the iconic movie set to the public were ended when the structure collapsed. Since the collapse, Pasquale has taken various pieces of the cabin on tour to a number of different pop culture events. But, it now looks like the superfan is ready to part ways with his precious pieces of movie history because just recently, a giant piece of the structure has come up for auction on eBay.
The eBay listing comes with a series of photos and details from Pasquale, who says he simply didn’t have the space to keep hold of the various components that made up the cabin.
“This is the actual exterior wall from the front upper left side of the original Evil Dead II Cabin,” reads the description on the listing. “In relation to the movie, this piece would have been above the clock and cellar door. The wall is fully intact. It is approximately 16 feet long and pretty heavy. Shipping can be done via U SHIP services at the expense of the buyer or can be picked up by the buyer in Weirton, WV.
I no longer have the room for this piece or a large enough area to use it as a display piece. I do not want to cut it up or dismantle it in any way. It survived the collapse of the Cabin and would hate to cause any damage to it.”
