Battlestar Galactica Props Are For Sale 65

will_die writes "The SciFi Channel's Battlestar Galactica will be holding multiple auctions to sell off props and costumes. The first auction will be Jan. 16-18, with a print and online catalogs coming out in December; the second will be in April, catalogs at a future date. The auction site is the Pasadena Convention Center but they will be offering Internet bidding, with live Internet broadcasting, and will handle world-wide shipping at extra cost. These auction are for the key items on the show such as Adama's lighter, Arrow of Athena, and maybe even a Viper. During the final ten weeks of the show they will be holding Internet auctions on items of lesser importance (and price). Until the auction begins, they are highlighting items as they catalog them and posting them on the website where you can subscribe to receive notifications by RSS feed or email. So far the posts have been interesting, with pictures of the items, screenshots of the item in the show, a history of the item, and how it was made."

      Neither Starbuck had a moustache, so it is of no interest to BG fans. Go peddle your wares at an A-Team convention.

        At first I thought you were serious, and that the joke had gone right over your head.

        Now I realise you are pointing out the amusing scenario whereby if Dirk did wear his mustache during the BSG years, that you'd be interested in purchase.

    They listed "signed poster of final cylon" and it's a picture of President Roslin!

    That is all.

  • I wonder if they're going to auction off any relics that they find on Earth that was.
  • How much for the Number Six Tricia Helfer cylon model? :D
  • Now how are they going to film Galactica 2010? You know, the one with Starbuck guiding the cute kids with super powers on Earth?

  • by Anonymous Coward

    Yeah, I'm the only one who has thought about Starbuck's undies (prefer re-imagined series, will consider all offers).

  • For Number Three/DiAnna! Hot, hot HOT!

      I'm bidding on a Boomer model Cylon. I figure if I marry an Asian chick, my kids won't be so pale.

    One of the best scifi series to be on tv in a long time. Gone before its time.
    • To me it "jumped the shark" when it landed on planet and everyone got off.

      But the picture to BG jumping into to sky and falling then jumping away was just great video. Very believable.

        With regards to the scene you described (jump into atmosphere, unload fighters, jump out), that was probably one of my favorite parts of the series.

  • in the pilot episode someone picked up a transmitter and boomer asked if he was qualified to use it. it was a green fluke ocsilliscope. anyone see any other useful items in the show?
  • BSG is filmed here in Vancouver, why Pasadena???

    Have the auction here, in the city that proudly loves and supports the series (and so many other series beloved by slashdot readers...).

    Think of the environmental footprint and cost of shipping everything to California first. Just to have to ship that Viper back when I put in the winning bid. :)

    • I'd give my right nut for a working Viper; screw the environmental impact.

      • I never realised that operating with only 1 nut increased your carbon (or is that methane? )emissions.

      • by HTH NE1 ( 675604 )

        Vipers cost two nuts so that you won't mind flying solo.

        A Raptor, now that's a ship with room to party in the back.
