60th week of IAW auctions (auctions ending March 8th)
While this is the 60th week of auctions, It is titled Week 64 to be consistent with the Star Trek Auctions Archive.
The Voyager Tom Paris Uniform Lot and Rank Pip Box at $ 2,104 got some interest because it was a different version of this costume we have seen so many times. I don’t like that it doesn’t have a turtleneck undershirt, but the small wooden box with the rank pips was very cool. I think it was a good deal overall.
The Nemesis Reman Military Uniform at $ 1,985 was right on traget as far as the price goes. It is amazing how these consistently sell at almost the same price, right around $ 2,000. And they are worth it! These are spectacular costumes and I strongly urge you to buy one if you have any interest. They are amazing works of craftsmanship and they look absolutely amazing in person. But fi you want to wear one, you better be skinny, as these guys were THIN! (The two piece Xindi variant would be easie rto find one that fits).
The Dr. Carol Marcus Regula 1 costume at $ 1,932 was an absolute steal. Why? Well, this is simply one of the most recognizable and important female guest star costumes in all of Star Trek. They are BEAUTIFUL on display as I have one and I can tell you it is stunning. My good buddy from the UK Andy, won the top at Christie’s (for about 1/10 of what he would have paid!) and so he and my buddy John went in on this as there were two sets of pants with this lot, obviously, the pair that should have been with the Christie’s lot Andy won was included here. So Andy and John went in, allowing Andy to finish his, and John to join the very elite World Wide Carol Marcus Costume Owner’s Society.
I thought the B’ellana Torres Starfleet Uniform went for $ 841, which was OK, but boy, was this beat up! It did come with a Maquis Rank Pip though.
A really nice Bajorn Militia Uniform went for $ 710. It was complete and about $ 150 mor ethan these usually go for, but still a great deal.
The Star Trek V Spock Camping Costume had tags indicating it was a sample and not scre used, but still, at $ 666 a great deal I think for a recognizable costume.
Finally, the Star Trek, TMP Costume was a top we haven’t seen before and so very interesting. At $ 632, a decent buy for something unusual.
As far as props go:
The Voyager Engineering Kit and Carry Case at $ 2,600 was a fantastic prop because it had so many pieces in it. This went about where I thought it would, as it was clearly the cream of the crop this week and really intriguing for all its pieces.
The Enterprise Molecular Analysis Scanner Case at $ 1,314 was a nice prop, but not very interesting I think. Just seems a little bland to me.
The Klingon Knife was not a Mek’Leth as IAW described, but actually a D’K Tahg as they have correctly reported in previous auctions. At $ 1,294, this was priced about right. IAW noted it was the last one in this good condition, which is what had me go after it. I need one for my Klingon Costume.
The Nemesis Phaser Rifle at $ 1,136 was incorrectly described as a Type III Mark III, when it is in fact a Type 3c. You can read about Type 3 Phaser Rifles on my blog here. None th eless, this is a good deal. I paid $ 2,000 for one just like this, though mine was in better condition. Still a good buy I think.
The TNG Starfleet Cortical Stimulator was crazy at $ 1,051 for a prop that was 2″ wide!! Why anyone would spend this kind of money for a tiny prop is beyond me, unless the buyer assume it was the one used on Picard (which would be a very bad assumption!).
The Romulan Disruptor Rifle was a good deal at $ 800. I have one of these and they are beautiful. To get a Star Trek rifle, made of resin and from one of the main races, is very good indeed.
THIS WEEK’S AWARDS:
Best Costume of the Week: The Carol Marcus Regula 1 costume at $ 1,932 is iconic!
Worst Buy of the week: The Red Themed Starfleet Inventory Application Sheet at $ 405 was CRAZY! It’s a single sheet of stickers!
