Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is auctioning off a super cool prop from the set of his latest movie and it’s all for a really great cause.
Gunn announced via a Facebook live video that he would be setting up an auction via eBay benefiting the Rainforest Trust charity. The item he is auctioning is certainly something that any Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 fan is going to want to add to their memorabilia collection. Gunn is auctioning off a Zune MP3 player, just like the one seen at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 only this one is much cooler!
Not only is it an awesome piece of memorabilia from the film but, it’s also signed by the entire Guardians cast including Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Kurt Russell (Ego), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax) and Zoe Saldana (Gamora).
In addition to just auctioning off the item, Gunn has pledged to match the winning bid (up to $12,000) with a donation of his to the Rainforest Trust. Pretty incredible. Check out Gunn’s Facebook live video below:
