The ‘Key to Mother’.

<INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY>

 

This funky prop from ALIEN sold about 7 years ago for a sweet US $7,073 (£ 5,040) at Bonhams Auction House.

According to the documentation at Alien Explorations, Roger Christian has his personal prop maker Roger Shaw make up the entry key for using scrape computer parts encased in perspex, a handle painted green and row of magnets along the end.

Do you think the prop-makers had any idea it would ever be so highly-prized?
