      More Michael Jackson Items on Auction
      August 17, 2017

      This time is items from Films and short films!
      3 items will be auctioned on September 26 part of a “Treasure from Film & Television” form Propstore, the auction house dedicated to movie and TV sets and costumes.
      The highlight of this auction for MJ fans is a magnificent (and scary) Werewolf mask used for “Thriller”! Yes, this is Thriller… Thriller year! Just be aware, this was not wore by Michael but only use to get the make-up right! Still, a great insight of the work done on the 35 years old Music Video (I know, short film) that changed the Music industry!

      A Michael Jackson ‘Cat-Face’ paint-test mask made for the classic John Landis-directed music video Michael Jackson’s Thriller. This mask was made to test the paint scheme for the cat monster Michael (Michael Jackson) turned into during the fake film at the beginning of the music video.

      Made of latex, the mask resembles a sharp-fanged beast with yellow cat eyes. The piece is coloured with acrylic paints that stops at the edges. Taped inside the mask is a handwritten note which is dated 2/24/1988 and outlines the steps to accomplish the paint scheme. The lot shows minor wear to the latex, with a small tear at the corner of the mouth. However, it remains in overall very fine condition. Dimensions: 25 cm x 22 cm x 14 cm (10″ x 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″)
      £2,000 – 3,000

      The second item is from Moonwalker and again this is a mask:

      A Michael Jackson robotic facial appliance from the production of his music anthology film Moonwalker. This appliance was made for the scene when Jackson transformed into a robotic spaceship.

      This latex mask was cast from a mould and is detailed with geometric, robot-like cheeks. The mask is painted silver to appear metallic. The appliance shows minor wear due to production use and age, but remains in very fine condition. Dimensions: 18 cm x 13 cm x 20 cm (7″ x 5″ x 8″)
      £1,000 – 1,500

      The last “little” piece is from the miniature of the planet where Captain EO land. A very small piece of that is on auction joined with few copy of documents and drawings:

      Here the copies of documents:

      A section of model miniature, concept artwork and behind-the-scenes photographs from Francis Ford Coppola’s sci-fi amusement experience Captain EO. The miniature formed part of the expansive set used for the scene in which Captain EO (Michael Jackson) and his crew descended to the planet’s surface.

      Made of plastic with a board backing, the piece is finished in grey paint, with assorted electronics used for additional detailing. The model miniature is accompanied by six sheets of printed concept artwork, some with pencil annotations, along with seven photographs detailing the construction of the trench set and a length of 70mm film from the filming of the trench scene. Dimensions (miniature section): 6 cm x 37 cm x 44 cm (2 1/2″ x 14 1/2″ x 17 1/2″)
      £500 – 700

      Michael Jackson Pepsi Commercial’s Ferrari on Sale (again)
      December 22, 2017

      Back in January 2014, the so famous car of Michael Jackson’s Pepsi Commercial was sold and here it is again through MotorGT. This car was driven by the king of pop in a 1987 Pepsi advert, back in the days of acid-washed jeans and long curly hair. It wasn’t just any advert either – the Ferrari was built specifically for a four-part epic display of commercialism where MJ basically becomes Indiana Jones, trying to escape fans. The build was carried out by a company in California at a cost of £30,000, which seems like quite a chunk of change for just a few seconds of televised glory but hey, it was the decade of excess and Pepsi had the hottest musical icon in the world.

      It’s not clear if the car was ever actually owned by Jackson, but some internet searching shows it’s been bought and sold a few times over the years. Just 17,000 miles show on the odometer, which is something we’d expect given the famous history of this particular Testarossa. It’s reported as having received a major service from a Ferrari dealer back in 2013, and it’s located in Fort Lauderdale with an asking price of just under £600,000. Aside from the folding roof the car looks as fresh and original as it did in the 1980s. Combined with the television appearance and connection to a music legend, we reckon this Ferrari isn’t just a cool car, but a proper 1980s time machine as well.…ls-ferrari-on-sale-again/

      #MichaelJackson's schwarzes #Ferrari Testarossa Cabrio aus der #Pepsi-Werbung "The Chase" aus dem Jahre 1987 steht seit vier Wochen auf der Plattform "Motor GT" für $799.900,- zum Verkauf. Der legendäre Ferrari wurde nur für Michaels Werbespot gebaut. Im Auftrage von Ferrari montierte ein Unternehmen in Kalifornien für $40.000,00. Ferrari selbst hatte so ein Modell nie im Angebot. Also ein Unikat. Dieser Ferrari Testarossa hat eine einzigartige Geschichte. Michael Jackson in der vierteiligen Pepsi-Werbung "The Chase" aus dem Jahre 1987, ab 1:57 min, zu sehen:

      Obwohl nur kurz in dem Werbespot zu sehen, wurde der schwarze Flitzer legendär! A la Indiana Jonas hechtet Michael in den Ferrari. Es ist unbekannt, ob Michael Jackson den Ferrari selbst wirklich besessen hat. Verfolgt man die Geschichte des Cabrios ist es erwiesen, dass es über einen Ferrari-Händler 2013 verkauft wurde und nun wieder auf dem Markt ist. Das Tacho zeigt nur 17.000 Meilen. Der Ferrari ist ebenfalls gewartet. 2017 steht er bei einem Ferrari-Händler in Fort Lauderdale in den USA:…/michael-jacksons-droptop-ferrari-…/…/michael-jackson-pepsi-commerc…/…/jacksons-pepsi-ferrari-auc…

      Was für ein Quatsch....

      Den Ferrari gabs doch als Serienfahrzeug, zwar nicht unbedingt in schwarz sonderen mehr in Ferrari Rot.
      Übersetzt heißt Testarossa auch "roter Kopf"

      In Weiß kennen den Ferrari bestimmt auch einige aus Miami Vice, dort fuhr ihn Sunny Corkett in 3 von 4 Staffeln.

      Der Schauspieler Alain Delon, Musiker Elton John, und der Rennfahrer Gehrad Berger besaßen so einen Ferrari.
