This is it. The Nerd’s costume from AVGN Movie. Includes glasses, hat, headset mic, watch, pocket protectors, belt, pants, shoes. The shirt is 1 of 3 used. The pants, also 1 of 3 used. The glasses are 1 of 2 used. Included is only set of clothes (one of each accessory). A total of 3 pocket protectors were used. Included are all 3. Shirt size is 15 1/2. The shirt has two holes in back used for wires which pulled me into the air, when the Alien rescues me. The holes were stitched, and barely visible. The glasses are actual prescription glasses. You won’t be able to see clearly through them, unless your eyes are the same as mine.
04. Bugs Bunny costume
Used in AVGN: Bugs Bunny’s Birthday Blowout episode, worn by Mike Matei. This was also used in the Crazy Castle episode, but that time, it was used as the stunt version, on the dummy only, while Mike was wearing a new costume. This here, is the original costume from Birthday Blowout, plus some other accessories. Autographed by Mike Matei. The costume is in bad shape, as a result of being beaten up, and shit on. The evidence is in the episode. Yes, the face is discolored from shit. There’s shit on it.
05. Jason Voorhees jacket
Just an old torn up jacket, but worn by Mike Matei in his very first appearance in an AVGN Episode, Friday the 13th (2006).
06. Freddy Krueger sweater and hat
Worn by myself and Mike Matei in the AVGN: Nightmare on Elm Street episode (2006). Sweater is size Large. The hat is very small. It barely fit on my head. Probably meant for kids.
07. Leather face costume
Mask and apron worn by Mike Matei in AVGN: Texas Chainsaw Massacre episode (2007). Autographed by Mike Matei.
08. Michael Myers costume
Boiler suit and Mask worn by Mike Matei in AVGN: Halloween episode (2007). Autographed on neck by Mike Matei.
09. Cooper wardrobe
From AVGN Movie, clothing worn by Jeremy Suarez, as the Nerd’s cinematic companion. One is a full set from his final outfit from the film used in most of the key scenes. The rest are various shirts he wore, including pajamas and the zombie clothing from the nightmare scene.
10. Mandi wardrobe
From AVGN Movie, a pair of shoes and two identical shirts worn by Sarah Glendening, used in her key action scenes in the film. The Nerd fails to rescue her, so she saves herself and kicks ass! Shirt size Small. Shoe size 36.
11. Zander wardrobe
From AVGN Movie, the eccentric Dr. Zandor who is behind what really happened with the E.T. game. He is a pivotal character from the film and archetype of the classic mentor (Merlin, Obi-Wan, etc.) Here is the actual sweater and mask worn by Time Winters. The welding mask is from the younger version in the flashback scenes. Sweater size Large.
12. Dark Onward’s shirts
6 shirts worn by Stephen Mendel as the self-destructive head-of-Area 51, in AVGN Movie. Each shirt shows varying stages of body damage. Some are missing arms, and are still bloody. Never washed! XLR/LNG, 17-17 1/2, 34/35
13. Elvis costume
Featured in AVGN Movie. Also worn by Mike Matei in Board James: OUIJA/ Domino Rally. Has mysterious coffee stains on legs. Maybe they’re shit stains.
14. Nerd’s Alien Costume
From the AVGN Movie, when the Nerd disguises himself as an Alien. Included are two sets of neck rings, and 3 masks, one which was slit open for the “autopsy” scene.
15. Atari Boxes
Seen in AVGN Movie, as Atari gets rid of their overstock of E.T. games, depicting the famous video game crash of 1983. I painted the logo on them myself, using a stencil that I made (also included).
The main hero spaceship from AVGN Movie, used in the climax. This is a cool little model, made for the film.
17. Fake video games
A bunch of made-up games for the AVGN Movie such as “EeeTee”, because we weren’t allowed to use real games. Includes “War Duty 3000”, “3D Virtual Space Road Explorer”, two versions of “EeeTee”, some with clean cartridges and boxes, others dirty and beaten, used in the landfill dumping sequence. Also “EeeTee 2” labels printed on blank discs. These were used for the crowd scenes, when everyone throws their copies into the pit, as history repeats itself. The cartridges are actual Atari 2600 games. Some of them may actually work. I’m not even sure which games they are. You can peel off the fake labels, or try them out and see. It’s like a box of chocolates. Full of surprises.
18. The Nerd Mobile miniature remains
Two miniature Nerd vans (What’s left of them), used for special effects shots in AVGN Movie. One has no wheels or under-side, and is falling apart. The other was blown up in a pyrotechnics shot. One side is melted beyond recognition while the other side still resembles a van. Good for prosperity only.
19. Planes, Missiles, and other miniatures
A series of planes, tank, and missile miniatures used in AVGN Movie. One of them is the remains of the plane that the Nerd flies, and tries to land before bailing out. It explodes in a fun pyrotechnic effect, and is now barely recognizable. Not it’s a new work of art in itself.
20. Tank miniature
Dark Onward’s tank miniature from AVGN Movie. This model was used in a climactic sequence of shots, where the tank fires at the Alien Spaceship and falls into the Atari landfill, crashing to its doom. The tires broke off in the fall, and pyrotechnics burned it, but it still remains somewhat intact. You may be able to glue them back on, and repaint the tank.
21. Foil Ball (foil exterior only)
From AVGN Movie, one of our favorite props that made everyone laugh on set. A giant foil ball that took us back to our childhoods, remembering Pee Wee’s Playhouse. The ball is actually nothing more than a bunch of shiny material, that was stretched over a giant beach ball. The beach ball is lost. In oder to recreate the foil ball, you would need to get another giant beach ball. But you can know for certain the “foil” part was actually used in the movie. Good for prosperity.
22. Prairie Dog tunnel
From AVGN Movie, as a tribute to the hilarious gofer from Caddyshack. Used when describing the dangers of trying to get near Area 51 “even a burrowing prairie dog would get smoked out by nerve gas.” Included is the home-made tunnel, and “prairie dog” from this brief, but memorable shot.
23. Area 51 “E.T. Room” buildings
Miniatures used in AVGN Movie, for a scene which imitates the infamous E.T. game. A major plot point, involving a conspiracy theory on what the E.T. game was really based on, and the real reason why it was buried.
24. Beer Droid
From AVGN: Star Wars episode, the nerd uses a droid to get his beer. In reality, some kind of vintage vacuum cleaner that belonged to my parents since the late 70’s or early 80’s. I saved it from the garbage many times, because I always thought it looked like it belonged in a sci-fi movie. Finally, I got to use it. Mission accomplished.
25. Bloody carpet
From Mike’s death scene in Board James: Dreamphone episode.
26. AVGN window blinds
The Nerd’s very own blinds, used in the basement window for many years, seen throughout countless episodes. Last appearance was in the AVGN Movie. I cut a hole in them to simulate a video game cartridge crashing through the window. Since then, I’ve been using newer blinds. The old one being auctioned here was old and discolored to begin with.
27. Reebok Air Pump Shoes
Used in AVGN: Dracula episode (2008). Size USA 9, UK 8, EUR 42, CM 27.
28. “Eat My Shorts”
Yo… it’s underwear. From the AVGN: Simpsons episode (2007). These shorts were cut, so that I could pull them off using my teeth.
29. EeeTee 2 signs
From AVGN Movie. The Nerd steps into the game store and sees his worst nightmare has come true. The sequel to the “worst game of all time.” These promo pieces are a little beaten up. The one that got used in the scene was printed on foam board. It is faded.
30. Nerd Face #1
From AVGN Movie. The nerd goes to sleep and dreams that his endorsement of the new “EeeTee 2” game leads to a mass celebration and carnival at the site of the original Atari landfill. His face is literally used to promote the game! All of these faces are a little worn, but are still very funny. I gave one to a crew member on set, because he was laughing so hard. This auction is for 1 Nerd face. There are 4 available (4 separate auctions).

60. Extraterrestrial Highway sign
Fake sign printed out on large board, for scene in AVGN Movie. Sign was displayed alongside desert highway as an imitation to the real-life famous road in Nevada (Route 375), the closest major highway to Area 51. Many UFO sightings have been reported on this road.
61. Atari Landfill
From AVGN Movie, when all the E.T. games rise from the pit, exposing this massive crater, actually just a set made from styrofoam and wood. This is a large bulky object, waiting to be displayed somewhere. You just need some more sand, and tiny fake trees, and it could look like new again. There is a small hole melted at the bottom of the crater, from pyrotechnics (the scene where the tank miniatures falls into the pit and blows up).
62. Cardboard box robots
Made as an homage to low-budget sci-fi movies, which in itself, AVGN Movie IS. These robots were made deliberately from cardboard boxes as a tribute to the genre. As a result of shooting the film, and shipping/ storing them for years, they are in very bad shape. But you could possibly repair them, maybe re-decorate them with electrical gadgets, for use in your own display, who knows. Also includes two laser gun props.
63. Nerd’s UFO
In AVGN Movie, the Nerd fakes his own home-made spaceship to sail over the fence of Area 51. This ship was constructed from foam and various materials. The top dome comes off easily. As seen in the film, I hide inside it, but in reality, I was positioned through a hole in the bottom. Only my upper torso was inside. Afterwards, we sent it sliding down the main slope of the famous Vasquez Rocks, seen in Star Trek and tons of films and TV shows. It suffered a major beating. Pieces are falling off everywhere. You might be able to refurbish it.
64. Tank Chair
General Dark Onward’s tank chair from AVGN Movie. Ever want to sit in something so badass? It does not actually drive. To create the illusion that it was functional, the actor had to walk it with his feet, and the treads were wound up and pulled by rope so they would move. It has gone through a lot on the movie set. It’s been shipped from Los Angeles to Philadelphia before, and has taken a beating. Right now, it sits safely in heavy wrap/ packing. Mainly the treads you would need to repair. Otherwise, it appears just like it did in the film. NOTE: It is extremely heavy. Especially with the packing, it would take a few people and a ramp to load it onto a vehicle.
65. The remains of Las Vegas/ Golden Gate Bridge/ Area 51
From the most epic sequences in AVGN Movie, and my favorite to shoot. This is when the monster Death Mwauthzyx destroys the cities. The condition of these items are expectedly damaged, as they were made to be destroyed on-camera. I’ve saved pieces where possible. Recommended for those with construction skill. With some work, you can reassemble them to use in your museum display or in your own film, who knows. Includes fragments of Golden Gate bridge, Area 51 towers, Mandalay Bay, “OMG” Grand, Excalibur Castle, and Paris Casino.
