From "Star Wars" droid C-3PO's head to Leonardo DiCaprio's "Titanic" costume, a trove of costumes and props are headed to auction next month in a sale of film and television memorabilia worth around $14.6 million.


 More than 1,800 items are being sold by entertainment memorabilia auctioneer Propstore at its annual live auction, which this year runs from Nov. 9-12.

 Leading the sale, which Propstore estimates will fetch more than 12 million pounds (14.6 million), is the light-up head actor Anthony Daniels wore to play C-3PO in "Star Wars: A New Hope", with an estimate of 500,000 - 1 million pounds ($600,000- $1.2 million).

Costumes for sale include a shirt, waistcoat and trousers DiCaprio wore in "Titanic" (100,000 - 200,000 pounds), Honey Ryder's bathrobe as worn by Ursula Andress in "Dr. No" (70,000-140,000 pounds) and Johnny Depp's stunt costume from "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (50,000-100,000 pounds).


Lane said the lots came from collectors, curators, archives, film studios and production companies.

 "The demand is growing and we're seeing things travel all over the world...and they're bought by passionate fans and lovers of the movies, collectors," he said. "But some of these items also end up in museums and studio archives as well."
