Well, not unless you have more than One hundred sixty thousand US dollars to spare and you can convince the winner of the Tuesday September 26th 2017 auction to give up his prized possession: Star Lord’s Guardians of the Galaxy Helmet.
Prop Store, a United Kingdom based move prop and memorabilia house, held their fourth annual movie prop auction. All told, this years’ auction raked in well over five million dollars – more than double their expectation.
In addition to this helmet, items from franchises and famous movies like Aliens, Pulp Fiction, Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Superman, Top Gun and Ghostbusters have sold, among a great many other things.

Here is the description:
Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill’s (Chris Pratt) hero helmet from James Gunn’s space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy. Star-Lord used his helmet throughout the film for protection in battle, and in the vacuum of space.
The two-piece light-up helmet is made of cast resin with a variety of different finishes mimicking metals. The helmet has been lightly distressed by production to simulate use. Small segments of metal tubing and mesh are incorporated throughout. The interior of the helmet is padded with foam, leather and vinyl materials, with Velcro straps for comfort. LED lights on the sides and behind the acrylic lenses connect to a lead wire and 3-pin circular connector, and illuminate the eyes with a red glow. A barcode labelled ‘Marvel 42362’ is attached to the inside, along with a handwritten label reading ‘Hero 3’.
This helmet was the grand prize in a 2015 sweepstake held by Marvel and Fandango. Documentation on the sweepstake and a letter of provenance from the sweepstake winner are included. The helmet shows light wear, such as the distressing mentioned above, but remains in excellent condition. Dimensions: 20 cm x 25 cm x 18 cm (8″ x 10″ x 7″)
