September 6th + 20th 2018.
Unlike last year, where I was basically dragged against my will to the 2017 Prop Store Auction at BFI Imax, this year I was already on-site to check out just a fraction of the 'Kool Warez' on the second day they went on display. Here's a sample OF the sample, along with starting prices to be replaced by final prices (excl. auction fees).
If you’ve got the cash and the inclination, here’s the website that’s hosting the auction….. but for me, here's how stuff I can't afford went down:
(note : all prices exclude auction fees)
So.... that's a whole bunch of stuff I can't afford. But ..... if you're the person in the future who bought the Back to the Future part II hoverboard, and is/are/were dreading the inevitable argument with your significant other over how much you spent on it, just call me and I'll be happy to take it off your hands!
Because that's the kind of person I am.
Thursday, 21st September - the auction itself!
The lots proceed alphabetically, and I was there from “Little Shop Of Horrors” to “Stargate” (which is just after ‘Star Wars’)
…. and then the Star Wars part of the auction…
So… that was that. Amusing, just like last year, and I came away no poorer afterwards than I did going in.
