A creepy film prop of Sylvester Stallone has been discovered in an antique store in Katoomba, NSW. It’s reportedly going for around $5.9K.
Sylvester Stallone’s “cryogenically frozen” body prop, featured in the 1993 movie, Demolition Man has mysteriously travelled from Hollywood to Australia recently, making its way into a small-town antique store by the name of Katoomba Village Emporium in NSW.
The contorted rubber prop was initially spotted by Instagram user, Bea Bellingham, who shared an image of her shocking discovery online: “Antiquing in Katoomba looking for weird things,” she captioned beneath the pic on her Instagram story. “What the actual fuck.”
A Twitter user by the name Adam Howes followed suit, posting his own snapshots of the disturbingly-contorted rubber figure resembling Stallone.
“During the ’90s, prop versions of Sylvester Stallone’s cryogenically frozen character in Demolition Man hung from the ceilings of Planet Hollywood restaurants. Now a defrosted John Spartan has surfaced in an Australian country town,” he captioned the post.

According to UK publication Mirror, the Sylvester Stallone film prop “could be yours for just £3,500.” That’s around $5,950 Aussie dollars for anyone thinking about getting their hands on this!
The 1993 sci-fi motion picture, Demolition Man was an absolute hit, starring Sylvester Stallone, Sandra Bullock, Wesley Snipes and others. Who would’ve thought the iconic freeze-dried figure used in the movie would end up on Aussie shores, nearly 30 years after the film’s launch?… Any takers?
