It’s hard to believe it’s been almost four years since we lost actor and comedian Robin Williams. As you can imagine, Williams and his partner Marsha, have collected their fair share of amazing and wonderful items over the years. Quite a few of these will be sold at auction this coming October, with part of the proceeds going to “charities championed by the couple”.
One such piece will be this Hook pinball machine, a gift from director Steven Spielberg.
Crafted by Data East Pinball back in 1991, the one-of-a-kind machine features “back glass vignettes [of] Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook and Williams as Peter Pan”.
If you’re wondering, yes, the 193 x 137.2 x 61cm machine still works. Sotheby’s estimates it will go for between $US3000-$US5000 ($4050-$6755), though I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the final amount is much higher.
If you’d like to view the rest of the auction’s catalogue, which includes “autographed scripts, awards, props and wardrobe” as well as art from Banksy, Niki de Saint-Phalle and Shepard Fairey, visit the Sotheby’s website.
