It’s actually pretty hard to believe, but the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Props & Costumes Auction has finally arrived. Did you buy your auction catalog yet?
Have you checked out the online-only auctions on eBay that are already underway (and will apparently continue throughout season 4.5)? As Pop Candy explains:
A special pre-auction auction has been posted on eBay and includes 200 items from the show. It closes Jan. 19. On Jan. 20, check eBay again for another auction of 200 items.
And wait, there's more! Starting Jan. 23, eBay will hold weekly auctions starting at 9 p.m. ET. They'll include items "relevant to the particular episode that just aired." Awesome.
If you are planning to attend the live auction this weekend in Pasadena, California, all you need to know about it can be found here.
If you are going to bid online, you should go here and read this. Note you must pre-register if you want to bid this way…and you can make proxy bids if you cannot actually watch the live auction.
Meanwhile, in case you guys didn’t know this before:
“A portion of the auction's overall proceeds will benefit United Way. Additionally, several cast members have designated specific items that will be auctioned off to benefit other charities.”
I’m going to be there for sure this weekend, twittering away, taking photos of myself leaning on the blackbird... and hoping against hope to win the Zak/Kara/Lee photo, Tigh’s flask, Baltar’s presidential portrait, the War Room chalk board, or the Unknown Soldier photo. Good hunting everyone.
