ALIEN RESURRECTION (1997) - USM Auriga Model Miniature - A USM Auriga model miniature from Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien: Resurrection. The United Systems Military (USM) cloned and studied Ripley 8 (Sigourney Weaver), as well as the Xenomorph clones taken from her, aboard the USM Auriga space station. The Auriga was designed by concept artists Jim Martin and Sylvain Despretz following an earlier, more medical-looking design by production designer Nigel Phelps. As Phelps' version was reportedly too long to be properly seen onscreen, Jeunet rejected it in favor of Martin and Despretz's concept, which slyly mimicked the exterior of a Facehugger. Believed to be the only one of its scale, this massive space station model was fabricated from fully customized and hand-painted components by the miniatures team at Hunter/Gratzner Industries (later known as New Deal Studios) for the film's opening sequence. It is composed of resin, fiberglass, vacuum-formed plastic, metal, and foam, among other materials, and inset with fiber optic cables designed to illuminate the exterior. Following production, many of the cables were cut, rendering them currently nonfunctional and several panels from the exterior came loose or snapped off. The miniature also exhibits flaked paint, cracks, and exposed resin throughout from production. Dimensions: 155" x 46" x 48" (393.75 cm x 117 cm x 122 cm) Special shipping required; see notice in the Buyer's Guide. Contains electronics; see electronics notice in the Buyer's Guide. Estimate: $20,000 - 40,000 Bidding for this lot will end on Tuesday, March 12th. The auction will begin at 9:00AM PDT and lots are sold sequentially via live auctioneer; tune in to the live streaming broadcast on auction day to follow the pace. Note other lots in the auction may close on Wednesday, March 13th or Thursday, March 14th.
