While season 4.5 of Battlestar Galactica has yet to air ::shakes fist at the SciFi Network::, production has been a wrap for a while now. In the end, the production department has no use for the sets and props used during the series, so they’ve put it all up for auction. Now you can own your own resurrection tub—just in case. Battlestarprops.com has posted the The Battlestar Galactica Auction Catalog, and it’s chock-full of pretty much everything used in the production of the series. Whole sets—including the battle-weary CIC, Adama’s quarters, and the pilots’ bunks are up for grabs, along with the full-scale production models for Vipers, Raptors and more.
Among the loot: Ship models to carry out your own stagings of battles; pretty much every uniform and major costume used, along with additional patches and insignias; blasters and helmets; stools from Joe’s Bar; Galactica’s famously hack-proof corded phones; Galactica’s Top Gun Mug; flight and ops manuals for Galactica and Pegasus, and all sorts of paper documents (including Starbuck and Adama’s personnel dossiers); plaques and chairs from the pilot ready room, Colonial One, the CIC and other sets; flags from the twelve colonies; all the artifacts from Roslin and Adama’s desks; and yes, even the $10,000 model ship that Edward James Olmos famously destroyed in a fit of improvised grief over Starbuck’s death (now going for considerably less)!
The auction takes place on January 17 and 18, 2009 at the Pasadena Convention Center, so clear out some debt from your (gold or black) credit cards and pony up some major money for some major BSG loot.
