A fleshed-out model that appeared in the “Terminator 3” finale is estimated at $60,000 to $80,000. So if you are nostalgic about Arnie and his role as a robot then try your luck today and tomorrow at the Profiles in History auction house in Calabasas, California.
Part of the proceeds from their sale will be donated to the United Nations Children’s Fund. The robot figures are among 1,200 items of Hollywood memorabilia to be sold in 200 lots.
