|Propworx will roll out a tour-wide display of costumes and props from fan favorite series Battlestar Galactica, Stargate and from Kevin Smith’s films, to premiere at Anaheim Comic Con.
Additional props from a wide range of movie and TV properties will be added throughout the tour. Propworx deals in collectibles from Hollywood blockbusters like Iron Man to long running properties like Star Trek. Props include costumes, set decorations, set pieces, models and other memorabilia.
"Propworx is excited to join the Wizard World Comic Con Tour. As fans ourselves, we know Wizard World attendees will love seeing the actual props and costumes from their favorite TV shows and movies and find out more about the Propworx auctions," said CEO of Propworx Alec Peters.
Peters will speak at select cites about both the joy and business side of collecting props and memorabilia.
Special, more elaborate exhibits are planned for Philadelphia Comic Con and Chicago Comic Con. Coverage in Wizard and ToyFare magazine and online at wizardworld.com will spotlight some of the best pieces from the tour.
Combined with the very best props from Propworx, along with the movie, TV and creator talent that Wizard provides, attendees in cities across North America are in for a heightened fan experience.
"Alec and I have been buddies forever. I was looking for the perfect opportunity to finally work with him and we've come up with the best partnership of all - We are bringing the authentic props from all your favorite shows and movies right to you," said Gareb Shamus, Wizard Entertainment CEO. “By making a commitment to the entire tour, we are guaranteeing a fun-filled experience for all our fans.”
Wizard’s Comic Con Tour continues to deliver the strong caliber of stars and exhibitors that fans across the nation have come to expect.
PROPWORX was created in 2008 by Alec Peters, an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award winner. Propworx changed the face of Hollywood prop and costume auctions with their event auction concept: fans and collectors can meet the cast and creators of their favorite TV series and films amidst the iconic relics from these properties, on which they can then bid to win. The landmark, year-long Battlestar Galactica auction events were the company's inaugural productions. The Iron Man Auction will be the company’s next live event, followed by the Star Trek Auctionin June and the Kevin Smith auction, Kevin Smith Sells Out! The Askewniverse Garage Sale and Stargate Artifacts, both in August. Follow Propworx at Propworx.com
