Firefly’Serenity’ school auction from AffableChap / Chris Buchanan
Monday 12 March 2007, by Webmaster
Hi Browncoats -
Affable Chap a/k/a Chris Buchanan here.
Last year about this time, I told you about an auction at my son’s school in a very similar post to this one. The SERENITY box was so popular that the school asked if I would donate another one this year so I did.
The school is having a small Ebay auction this week (ends March 20th) and I donated an “Extravaganza” box of stuff from the show and movie and the link is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330097522304&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:11
The "Extravaganza" has so many cool items that the official auction catalogue doesn’t even list (or show photos of) them all, but I will list the highlights here:
1 official SERENITY miniposter from Comic Con 2004 (listing the release date as April 22, 2005) that is SIGNED by the entire original cast - Nathan, Adam, Gina, Morena, Alan, Ron, Jewel, Summer, Sean - and Joss Whedon. I will add a personalized letter on official Serenity letterhead stating that it’s the real deal and that I saw them sign it.
1 official SERENITY brown T-shirt size Men’s XL which was a “points” prize from the official website.
1 official SERENITY black hat which was a “points” prize from the official website.
1 FULL SET (5 figures) of mint condition Diamond Select action figures including both Malcolm Reynolds variations, both Jayne Cobb variations, & the Reaver figure.
1 one sheet U.S. theatrical poster for SERENITY.
1 Firefly DVD set with a Fruit Oaty Girls sticker on it (I gave this as a cast & crew present to everyone that worked on the show.)
And lots of extras like key chains, fan patches, novelization, RPL game, etc.
I also donated a full set of SERENITY comics (all 9 covers) each signed by both Joss and Brett Matthews, who wrote the book. The link is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330097529206&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:11 Hopefully, it will help my son’s school in a big way and give you guys the inside edge to getting some authentic stuff.
IF ANYONE FROM THE O.B. WINS EITHER AUCTION, TELL ME IT’S YOU (THROUGH EBAY) AND I’LL THROW IN SOMETHING EXTRA COOL, I PROMISE.
No pressure, seriously, just an FYI for any interested Browncoats.
Moreover, there is other cool not Firefly stuff in the auction that might interest you, like an animation cell of Lisa Simpson, a Master Replicas Luke Skywalker Lightsaber (Ep. V, The Empire Strikes Back model), rare American Dad stuff, a NACHO LIBRE script signed and personalized by the writer/director Jared Hess (of Napoleon Dynamite fame), etc. See all the items here: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZitemmanager
Whew! That was an overly long post. Thanks for reading it & for helping me (& my son’s school) out!
