The monolith from the final scene of 2001: A Space Odissey with the old man in bed lifting hand as if to touch the monolith from the bed. Where are these props?

    According to a Hollywood.com article: "13. Kubrick had all of 2001’s sets, props, and miniatures destroyed so they would never be able to be recycled for future movies, the way Forbidden Planet’s props surfaced in later films." – CGCampbell Jun 29 '15 at 1:49
  • @CGCampbell - IIRC they had to rebuild the Discovery model from scratch for 2010: Odyssey Two since the original was destroyed. – System Down Jun 29 '15 at 5:40

    You might still get one of these, if that satisfies your needs. – Wrzlprmft Jun 29 '15 at 8:36
  • I remember hearing that Kubrick had a habit of destroying the outtakes, didn't think he'd do the same with props., Kinda makes me wonder if the set of "The Shining" really burnt down or was set on fire. Ahhh man! That action figure rocks. – NormLDude Jun 29 '15 at 12:30

If you're looking to buy an actual prop used for the movie, you may be out of luck as according to a Hollywood.com article:

  1. Kubrick had all of 2001’s sets, props, and miniatures destroyed so they would never be able to be recycled for future movies, the way Forbidden Planet’s props surfaced in later films.

Of course, there may have been reproductions made for personal use/enjoyment, etc. Good luck with your continued search for extra-dimensional education.
