Auctioneer Profiles in History said it expected the 3,200 pound (1.45 ton) Hero Bumblebee robot from the first movie in 2007 to fetch $60,000 to $80,000 at the Oct 8-9 auction while the motorcycle costume worn by Fox as Mikaela Banes in the blockbuster 2009 sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, along with her shorts and tank top, have an estimate of $3,000 to $5,000, reports tiscali.co.uk.
Joe Maddalena, president of Profiles in History, said anything worn by Fox was in great demand by collectors.
"Transformers made her a star and I expect her costumes to perform very well at auction. The 17-foot Bumblebee robot speaks for itself ... it's such an amazing spectacle and a pop culture icon that I expect bidders to go crazy," said Maddalena.
The disassembled robot is currently stored in boxes. All the items were consigned by the films' Viacom Inc-owned distributor, Paramount Pictures, and director, Michael Bay.
Bids can be placed in person at the auction in Calabasas, outside Los Angeles, by phone or live on the Internet.
