MAERLYN’S RAINBOW

A key element of Stephen King’s epic series The Dark Tower is Maerlyn’s Rainbow – a collection of 13 mystical (and cursed) orbs of different colors that represent the 12 Guardians of the Beams (and a black orb that represent the Tower itself). The orbs also play a central role in the film version as Matthew McConaughey’s wicked wizard Walter (above) uses the orbs to peer between worlds. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering one of the screen-used orbs of Maerlyn’s Rainbow from The Dark Tower film. The otherworldly gray, pink and orange sphere lights up for full effect – though it is not guaranteed to open portals into Mid-World for non-wizards or gunslingers. Click here for photos and more information on this enchanted piece of film history – and claim a piece of The Dark Tower today!

 

DARK TOWER ARSENAL

The Gunslinger may have been born into an alternate wasteland of a world where radiation and demons run amok, but when Jake (Tom Taylor) tells Roland (Idris Elba) that he’s going to like modern-day New York with its abundance of firearms – he is absolutely right. Watching the Gunslinger enter a gun shop is like watching the proverbial kid in a candy store – and now VIP Fan Auctions is returning the favor by bringing a cache of Roland’s screen-used pistols to our world. Three of Roland’s prop guns used on-screen in The Dark Tower are currently available – two comprised of hard rubber and one made of soft rubber. All of the guns have been exquisitely designed to look authentic on the screen – and key props from this long-awaited screen version of the Stephen King epic. Don’t miss out on owning an authentic piece of the Gunslinger’s arsenal – click here to see all of the available Dark Tower props and wardrobe items and get in on the bidding before it’s too late!

 

YOUR OWN LOBSTROCITY!

Mid-world is full of dangers, and few creatures who inhabit the wasteland are as terrifying as the legendary “Lobstrocities.” You can hear them coming by their maniacal “Did-a-chick? Dum-a-chum? Dad-a-cham? Ded-a-chek?” and you’ll recognize them by their hideous form: part lobster, part scorpion, all slimy, hungry – and big, really big. In the film version of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, Lobstrocities are relegated to life in a large water tank at the Dixie Pig. VIP Fan Auctions, however, is offering one devoted fan a chance to own a Lobstrocity featured on-screen in the film. The creature is constructed of rubber, measures more than four feet in length and weighs roughly 150 lbs.

GREAT BALLS OF IRE

Fans of Stephen King’s epic series The Dark Tower know the significance of Maerlyn’s Rainbow – a collection of 13 mystical orbs of different hues to represent the 12 Guardians of the Beams with the black orb representing the Tower itself. The orbs allow their users to peer between worlds – but beware: all are cursed. In the film version, Matthew McConaughey’s wizard holds them in his hair – but now VIP Fan Auctions is offering several of these infamous stone spheres to fans. Currently available is a pair of bluish-gray orbs (one is hollow) used on-screen in The Dark Tower. In addition, a pair of lighter-colored (orangish-pink) orbs are also available.

GUNSLINGER’S HORN O’ PLENTY

“The Dark Tower is close, now. The Crimson King awaits. Soon Roland will raise the Horn of Eld. And blow,” tweeted author Stephen King back in May 2016, hinting at things to come in the long-awaited film adaptation of his classic book seres. The Horn of Eld holds tremendous significance in The Dark Tower – and in the film version of the epic tale, it serves as one of Hollywood’s coolest “easter eggs.” Legends tells us the horn once belonged to Arthur Eld, the ancient king from which Roland’s line of Gunslingers – as well as the wicked Crimson King – are descendants. It’s also key to allowing Roland to enter the fabled Tower. The on-screen nod to the Horn of Eld can be seen poking out of Roland’s (Idris Elba) satchel. VIP Fan Auctions is offering this amazing piece of movie – and literary – history. Click here for photos of the Horn of Eld – as well as Roland’s flask (also included in the auction), from which a thirsty Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) nearly gets himself shot while guzzling upon his entry to Mid-World! But don’t wait – this auction ends soon and Taheen Trackers are coming.

 

GUNSLINGER MAGIC

Idris Elba’s gunslinger in The Dark Tower may not be a wizard, but he’s magical with a pistol. Whether he’s tuning out the chaos around him to shoot an orc with his mind, or bouncing a bullet off a steel beam to break through a mystical force field – a little visual effects magic goes a long way toward bringing the images of Stephen king’s epic tale to the silver screen. VIP Fan Auctions if giving fans of The Dark Tower an opportunity to own one of Roland’s pistols – including the gun tricked-out with green-screen tape on its barrel for visual effects. In a separate auction, one of the gunslinger’s hard-rubber prop pistols designed to look authentic for Mid-World is also available. Don’t miss this chance to own a signature prop from one of the most anticipated films of the summer – wielded by one of the great characters in modern literature!

DARK TOWER FIREPOWER

The Gunslinger shoots with his eye, aims with his mind and kills with his heart – and he has an awesome set of sidearms to make sure his bullets find his target. Several of the .45 revolvers used on screen by Idris Elba’s Roland Deschain in The Dark Tower are now available to fans of the film version of Stephen King’s epic tale at VIP Fan Auctions. Each of the pistols is constructed in slightly different ways for use on film, but all of them represent some of the finest gunsmithing in Mid-World. Click here to check out each of the guns and the rest of The Dark Tower props and wardrobe. Don’t miss this chance to claim a piece of one of the most-anticipated films of the century!

 

 

SHOOT TO THRILL

“I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart.” Stephen King’s haunting creed of The Gunslinger shows that the pistol is more than a tool of the trade. It’s an extension of Roland’s (Idris Elba) hand, his mission and his survival as he stands as the last line of defense between the forces of evil and The Dark Tower. VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of Roland’s prop guns featured on-screen in The Dark Tower feature film. The pistol is constructed of hard rubber and crafted for authenticity with a brown handle, and silver barrel, trigger and hammer. For more information, photos and a chance to own one of the Gunslinger’s pistols, you need only to aim with your eye, shoot with your mind and click here to bid today.

 

WIZARD’S BALL

Like a post-Apocalyptic Wicked Witch of the Old West, The Dark Tower’s evil wizard Walter (played with grinning viciousness by Matthew McConaughey) could look beyond his world with the help of a mystical orb. Fans of the Stephen King book series will recognize these orbs as the set of stones known as Maerlyn’s Rainbow, but Walter relies on the black-and-blue orb to keep a safe distance and watchful eye on Roland in Mid-World. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used orb to The Dark Tower fan who places the winning bid – click here for photos and more information, or to join the bidding today!
