An upcoming Hollywood prop auction is giving Batman fans a chance to bid on the ultimate cosplay outfit: Christian Bale‘s batsuit. 

Prop Store is a familiar name to collectors, organizing online auctions for Hollywood props like set items from sci-fi classics and a hoard of stuff from the TV show Hannibal. Taking place on September 27, its next big auction includes props and costumes from The Dark Night Rises, the Harry Potter movies, and Star Wars.

The three biggest pieces up for grabs are one of Christian Bale’s Batman costumes, Tom Hardy‘s Bane costume from The Dark Knight Rises, and Harry’s Hogwart’s acceptance letter from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone—all of which are sure to sell for thousands of dollars. The full auction includes 570 props, and while Prop Store hasn’t shared the full list yet, it has posted images of a TIE fighter helmet from Star Wars, one of Captain America’s shields, and a Predator costume.

People can bid online or by phone, but we predict that Prop Store’s real-life exhibit in London will be just as popular. Most fans won’t be able to afford a top-tier prop from an auction like this, but if you live anywhere near the city, you can drop in and see some of the collection in person on September 27.
