Special effects make-up artist and seven-time Oscar winner Rick Baker has auctioned off 417 items spanning over 30 years of his work at the Hilton Universal City Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Friday, a day after announcing his retirement. The most expensive of Baker's creations on auction was a 15 feet (4.57 m) tall figure of 'Mikey' an alien from the Men in Black films that is expected to cost between $40,000 (€36,670) and $60,000 (€55,000). Some of Baker's other works on auction include masks from the Planet of the Apes film series, figures from Gremlins 2, Harry's head from Harry and the Hendersons, items from Michael Jackson's music videos and the Grinch Santa costume from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
