terminator 2 arm arnold

An auction house is giving sci-fi fans the chance to own one of the most famous props in movie history: the T-800's cyber-arm from Terminator 2.

An (evil?) art director saved the arm from the set of James Cameron's groundbreaking sci-fi sequel starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a one-liner spewing murderbot, mirroring Miles Dyson, who saved a similar robo-arm from wreckage in the original movie, So, yeah, sometimes life does imitate art in some very, very creepy ways.

The arm up for auction isn't the one shown in the pic up top, it's the one that was blown up at the steel mill during the movie's climax.

The prop is perfectly scorched and busted up to look like it was in an explosion. The famous limb would've been trashed if art director Shay Austin hadn't rescued it from the wreckage. It goes up for auction July 17 at Heritage Auction Galleries in Beverly Hills and is expected to fetch about $15,000.
