SHOTLIST:AP -- AP CLIENTS ONLYHong Kong -- December 5, 20131. UPSOUND of auctioneer2. SOUNDBITE (English) Stanley Zau, BruceLee collector and bidder"I think the most important thing being auctioned today is probably the nunchucks. I think there are three BruceLee items that are very important, it's the suit (yellow jumpsuit), the nunchucks and Han's claw (weapon) in (movie) "Enter The Dragon". And this is the first time I've seen, you know, yellow nunchucks being offered for sale."3. SOUNDBITE (English) George Philips, bought yellow nunchucks:"It's an iconic item. This, the nunchucks, more than anything else. I remember practicing using these when I was a kid. We used to put motorcycle helmets on so we wouldn't hurt ourselves, and we'd practice and it's just kind of, it's fun."STORYLINEHollywood actor BruceLee's famous yellow jumpsuit from one of his final fight scenes sold for 100-thousand dollars (780-thousand Hong Kong dollars) on Thursday at an auction in Hong Kong commemorating the 40th anniversary of the martial arts legend's death.The jumpsuit was one of 14 items, including clothes and movie props, that went under the hammer.Lee wore the yellow suit, with black stripes down the sides, in his last movie "Game of Death" - he died before the movie was finished.Lee's bamboo whip from "Game of Death" sold for 12,308 dollars (96-thousand Hong Kong dollars) while a Hong Kong-based collector from London bought yellow nunchucks Lee used in the film for 69,230 dollars (540,000 Hong Kong dollars).George Philips, who works as an investment manager in Hong Kong, said the wooden lacquered martial arts weapon brought back memories from his childhood."I remember practicing using these when I was a kid. We used to put motorcycle helmets on so we wouldn't hurt ourselves, and we'd practice and it's just kind of, it's fun," said Philips.He added that he would lend the nunchucks to museums.Long-time BruceLee collector Stanley Zau also bid for the nunchucks, but lost out to Philips.He said Thursday's auction, organised by Spink auction house, was significant because yellow nunchucks had never been offered for sale before.A jade pendant that BruceLee designed also sold for 20-thousand dollars (156-thousand Hong Kong dollars).The auction house said Lee gave the items to his friend and former student Taky Kimura who sold them on to a collector.Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity from Kimura.Lee's died in 1973 from an allergic reaction to painkillers.His death came at the height of his fame.
