Aiens came out more than fourty years ago and it is still a masterpiece. Same can be said for Indiana Jones. Call me nostalgic, but they don't do movies like those anymore.

I totally agree. The 70's and 80's were the best time for movies, music, and TV shows. Aliens, Blade Runner, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, etc. were the best. Not to mention the movie soundtracks. I still think Danger zone, Footloose, The Power of Love, St. Elmo's Fire, and Nothing's Gonna Stop Us, among others, are some of the best songs to come from movies.

TV shows too. Taxi, Miami Vice, Magnum PI, Cheers - and their themes are classics.

I'd go for the Helmet. 70k isnt that steep and it's very iconic too. But sadly, I don't know where I'd put it. Perhaps a Restaurant chain such as Hard-Rock will buy it ? These things really deserve to be in a Museum of Movies, though space = money.

There was a movie themed restaurant/club chain called 'Hollywood Cafe' or something like that. The Top Gun helmet would belong in a place like that, but that chain went out of business about 20 years ago. Hard Rock Cafes display stuff related to rock'n'roll, not movies.
