My son, will you turn off that wretched puppet!

Brush your teeth.

Don't call him a puppet!

I beg your pardon?

Look, he is not a puppet.

Howdy Doody is real.

- Really.

- Mr Di-Di-Do-Do -

- Have to say good night.

Remember you have to be asleep -

- when he comes down the chimney.

It's not even a chimney, Pap.

He has his ways.

- Then I will wait up? Watch him do it

- Nonsens.

Okay, I want a story then.

- No stories tonight.

- Just one.

And then I'll go to bed right away.

And then I brush my teeth.

I promise.

It is said that at the dawn of time -

- man, beast and all magical beings -

- Lived together under Aidlin

- The Fathertree.

But man had been created with a hole in his heart.

A hole that no possession, power -

or knowledge could fill.

And in his infinite greed -

- man dreamt of expanding his dominion -

- over the entire Earth.

The blood of many an elf, oger and gobelin -

-was spilt in that war whith man.

And King Balor, the king of Elfland -

- watched the slaughter with dread and despair.

But one day, the master of the goblin blacksmiths -

- offered to build the King a golden mechanical army.

- and could not be stopped.

Prince Nuada begged his father to agree.

Build me this army the King said.

So a magical crown was forged -

- that would allow those of royal blood to command

the Golden Army if unchalenged.

I am King Balor, the leader of the Golden Army.

Is there anyone who disputes my right?

And in his throne room no one challenged his word.

But wait, what if someone chalenge him?

Would they have a fight?

Most likely, a challenge must be answered -

- But do you want to hear the end of the story or not?

- Yes, please.

The world was changed, -

- And next time the humans marched, -

- they felt the earth tremble beneath their feet -

and saw the sky darken

with monstrous shapes.

And the Golden Army had no remorse.

Felt no loyalty or pain.

And King Balor's heart

grew heavy with regret.

So he called a truce -

- and divided the crown in three pieces.

One for the humans

and two for himself.

ln exchange man would keep

to the cities -

- and the magical beings would own the forests.

This truce would be honoured by their sons -

- and the sons of their sons -

- until the end of time.

But Prince Nuada did not believe

in the promises of man.

And it is said he went into exile -

- vowing to return,

the day his people needed him most.

So the Golden Army lay dormant -

- locked inside the earth...


And there it is to this day -

awaiting the day the crown

is made whole again.

Silent ...

Still ...

...and indestructible.

What does it mean ''indestruble''?


Means no one can destroy them.

Go to sleep, my son.

It is just a story, right Paps?

- Is it now?

- Yes, come on.

Those guys they can't be real.

Well, my son.

I am sure you'll find out.

Hellboy 2:
The Golden Army

How long have you

been there, my friend?

They are over there.

I bought them today.

I have not fed them ...

At all.

I will go up first, -

- You'll follow.

And remember, Mr Wink -

- don't be shy.

Next lot, No 776.

... is an important votive figure.

A fertility goddess,

dating approximately 15.000-10.000 BC.

This was found in a less deposit -

- less than 30 metres,

from the Shannon river.

And we open the biding at $300,000.

Going once, going twice...


And now we move on to our next item -

- lot 777, a piece of the Royal

crown from Bethmora ...

...origin speaks saga of sons of heaven and hold the fate of the Golden Army.

And here it is, our next item.

Please, keep your seats
