Props of Auction Two, or, Attack of the Cylon Transponder (again)
May 6, 2009 · Print This Article
Today we went through the list of props for auction two, and decided what we’d like to fall off the truck. Unfortunately for us that damn Cylon transponder was still under my desk and Alec heard everything. Frak! Well, I figured someone should benefit from my and my staff’s slacking, so here is a list of items we think are worth having.
Another item for your garage guys, number 384, Kara’s crashed viper intake cover – how awesome would it be to hold it up every time someone enters the room and scream “what am I?” Super awesome, that’s how. You could also tell people about the plane crash you survived in the war while eating refried beans from a can made from the Cylon you toasted in combat, but that might be over-kill.
358 – Saul’s eye patch — oh come on, it would be a hit at all the Cylon parties Brother Cavil is always talking about. You could go around telling everybody what kind of man you are, ask people if they hear the music too, or just stare at them with one unblinking gaze. I know of at least one guy who ran around the marriot last years screeming “Its in the frakking walls!” that should be bidding on this. That’s right, I know you all so well I’m calling you out now. Muahahahaha!
Number 533, Gaeta’s Secret Document Envelopes – be part of the resistance! Sneak around your house and leave them in unsuspecting drawers, then flip over your dog’s bowl. Everyone you live with will appreciate the sacrifice you are making, except for your dog, who has decided he’d be better off with cat killer Lampkin.
Lot 505, a Cylon Spy Device – Like I said before, this thing keeps showing up under my desk, please someone buy it and take it home!!
An item that is sure to make a killing is Lot 575, the National Geographic which features an insert on “The mother of Mankind” or as we know her, Hera, that kid that grows really fast. This is a really great item because its easy to display and super recognizable.
So there you have it, five things that didn’t make it into my apartment, and will hopefully make it into one of your homes. Make sure you are registered to bid online at auctionnetwork.com, and please come by and visit our forums at battlestarprops.com to meet up with other fans, chat about the props, and get more information on our auctions. I hope to see you all at the auction, it should be a frakking good time! – Erin
