Sylvester Stallone is Selling the Leica M9 Used in Expendables 2 on eBay

Those interested in starting or adding to an expensive collection of cameras may want to head over to eBay very soon. That’s because movie star Sylvester Stallone, or more accurately his brother Frank Stallone, is in the process of selling the Leica M9 used in the movie The Expendables 2.

In addition to the M9 itself, the winning bidder will also receive a 35mm f/2.5 Summarit lens, a carrying case, all the essentials (battery, charger, strap, etc.), a copy of the movie and a manual signed by Sylvester Stallone himself. And if you’re worried about the camera’s condition, you should know it was used only once and returned to the prop master right away.

Here are a few of the pictures from the auction:

As you can imagine, an already expensive camera like the Leica M9 isn’t going to sell for pennies when it comes attached to Stallone’s signature. Last we checked the bidding had gotten up to $6,300; and we all know the real sniping bidding doesn’t even start until the last ten seconds or so.


Update: The auction has ended, with the camera selling for a winning bid of $7,100.

    nice camera – so why sit it on it’s back on bare bricks?!!!!

    The camera and lens are already crazy expensive but autographed by Stallone?! Talk about Over The Top Expendable income for a Rocky purchase! Better Tango for Cash or see how this Cliffhanger will end.

    i would have preferred the camera show some signs of use from being used in the movie, but signs of being laid down on bricks for the ebay photos is lame.

    -damn, also i can’t help but notice that it looks like Rambo is wearing an old guy track style suit and looks like he needs a coffee and a bagel. and his eyes are closed.

    They should at least leave a film in the camera which Stallone used to take pictures on during the production.

    It is a digital camera :-)

  • rob

    It went for just $7100?

  • Sabrunto

    That same combo would sell retail for about $9,000, without being used in expendables 2 or having the manual signed by stallone. I wish I had seen the post before.

    Memory card then :)

    Is he hard up for money?

  • 9inchnail

    Wow, 7100$ is a steal. The camera in that condition alone would be worth the money. Lucky bastard who won the auction.

  • Terry Clark

    Well, it’s a used camera that’s worth at best today $4,500 and a used lens that might bring $1,300 on its own. That’s $5,800 for the pair. The Stalone package sold for $7,100 for a net increase of $1,300 just for Sly’s signature on some paperwork. Wonder if they had used an MP if the price would have been better? Film is forever, but at some point all these digital cameras will become paperweights, no matter how expensive they are when new.

    :) It is bad that they are giving a bad movie with a good camera ;-)
