The one-of-a-kind original mechatronic model -- used to bring the alien to life -- sold for $2.5 million at Julien's Auctions. The piece was used as the #1 filming model "actor" for the movie's main character in the 1982 classic flick "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."
In all, the model has 85 points of movement and was created by "The Father of E.T." Carlo Rambaldi ... basically, it's a real engineering masterpiece.
A Kuwahara BMX bike used by BMX rider Robert Cardoza, who was the stunt rider for the legendary bicycle scenes from the movie was snatched for $115,200 ... which, turns out to be 3X more than organizers expected.
