Johnny Depp’s Edward Scissorhands props double in value after trial

Johnny Depp’s value has skyrocketed following his blockbuster defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard.

The 59-year-old’s iconic prop hands from the 1990 Tim Burton classic Edward Scissorhands fetched twice their estimated monetary value following his high-profile win in court earlier this month.

The scissorhands, which Depp wore as the film’s title character, sold for $81,250, nearly double the price memorabilia experts were expecting at auction, TMZ reported Wednesday.

Propstore, an auction company specializing in film collectibles, previously announced the sale would begin on June 21 and run through the end of this week.

Other collectibles slated for action in the near future include Depp’s 1990 John Waters Camp Fest “Cry Baby” motorcycle. The 1955 Model K will go under the hammer at Kruse GWS Auctions, which set the opening bid at a whopping $250,000 to have.

The recent auction also hyped Marvel’s Thor hammer, which sold for a staggering $162,500, and Tom Hank’s iconic Wilson Ball from Castaway. This hot commodity sold for an amazing $187,500.

Meanwhile, Depp won $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages from a jury against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Heard, 36, could still be making money after the trial. The Aquaman actress is rumored to be writing a revenge book soon – although those reports are unconfirmed at this time.

The mechanical prop was used in the film's iconic scene when the character Edward used his blades to turn an iron angel into a flurry of snow for Kim, played by Winona Ryder. It is described as pointing "heavy wear and aging on the foam rubber element", but three online bids have already been placed - the highest at $20,000. The dangerous-looking glove is up for sale at auction house Propstore and will go under the hammer in Los Angeles this month. Other horror film items also available in the same sale include jackets from the vampire classic The Lost Boys, which are expected to sell for up to £95,000. Jeff Goldblum's Final Form Head of The Fly is expected to cost almost £12,000 and a flapper used in From Dawn Till Dusk, featuring autographs from George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, is estimated at up to £11,955. The auction will take place on June 21st in Valencia, California and will feature a collection of film memorabilia valued at over £7.1 million.

“Amber considers her career in Hollywood to be over. She’s already in talks and looking forward to it,” a source told OK! magazine on Tuesday. “At this point she has nothing to lose and wants to tell everything.”

However, the book could give rise to other potential lawsuits, an expert told the outlet.

“Depp and his attorneys will read and hear everything Heard says,” author Dror Bikel told OK! “If she crosses the line, which is likely, there’s no question she’ll be hit with another defamation lawsuit and go straight back to court.”

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor also issued a warning yesterday, pointing out that there have been scammers on social media pretending to be him.

In a lengthy Instagram story, he wrote, “I’ve been made aware that there are fake accounts pretending to be me or people collaborating with me.”

“I don’t have any personal or secondary accounts on any platforms. These are the only sites run by me and my team where we share updates and communicate,” he added.

He continued: “I urge you to remain cautious as it seems these fake accounts can be relentless. My team is working to combat the problem. Thank you for your continued support and for bringing this issue to my attention! Love and respect, JD X.”
