I loved me some Mel Brooks films growing up; Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs were my favorites. Spaceballs was a hilarious mockery of the Star Wars franchise, and one of the most immediately recognizable characters from the film is Dark Helmet. Now, you’ve got a chance to own the actual Dark Helmet helmet that Rick Moranis worn on screen.

The Profiles in History auction #89 will be offering up the iconic, oversize helmet later this month. It’s a vacuum formed black shell attached to the insides of a hard hat and fitted for Moranis’ head. It is listed as having minor wear and age in vintage very good to fine condition and is expected to bring $8,000 to $12,000 at auction.

Also in the auction is the actual model of the Eagle 5 Winnebago piloted by Lone Starr and Barf (Bill Pullman and John Candy respectively). It is said to be highly detailed and in production used very fine condition. It is expected to fetch $20,000 to $30,000.
