Nothing yet; I hope this will not end up once more with "hey-guys-guess-what-we-found-so-many-lots-of-goodiesforyou-in-our-warehouse-that-we-will-have-another-five-auctions", and "oooh-thaaank-you-Al*c". :scowl:

EDIT: Ah. apparently Universal-NBC has enough too. (see the new post at Prpwrx)

Ok, now we'll have "oooh-the-bad-bad-NBC-guys"...

Oh, he is SO full of crap! NBC isn't nearly as involved as he's made them out to be- they don't CARE! He's a subcontractor, and halfway through the eBay auctions he renegotiated the deal, so he held back a bunch of stuff that was going to be high-ticket later. That's why the auctions resumed with all that really hot stuff after the break in the middle. Remember? The red Six dress, Tigh's duty blues and tags, that auction? Also why he held all the tanks to the end- he knew people would be wild for them and likely to pay very high prices.

Maybe someone should ask him... and would be banned from the Prpwrx forum and auctions... :think:

Maybe some people found his methods questionable and this came to NBC's ears? Unlikely, but we never know.

You notice that he still hasn't answered the "where did Erin go" question? Same as with Joe.

Some "explanations" (or let's say "more posts") in the Prpwrx thread. The whole "merchandise & catalog" section at http://www.battlestarprops.com/ is down. Looks like it's serious this time.


I made an eventually interesting post.

I think I may join you in asking for information. No one I know seems to know why Erin left. I'll keep digging.

Play the "naive" girl when asking, it gives the most interesting results... :angel:

Wow.

WHY do you underestimate me repeatedly?

Watching the auctions. I showed up late, but the prices are STUPID. I mean, I love the show and all, but........

(Oh, who am I kidding. If I had the money, I'd buy Helo's boxing gear and Grace's whatever might have DNA and clone them both for the fans.)

Helo's tanks just went for 687.00.
Lee's were 200.00 less. Take that, Apollo. ;}
Boomer's are 810.00. Okay, which one of you boys went for broke? :dance:
Chief's 410.00.

And then there was this: I KNEW he was holding stuff back for private sale! KNEW IT!
Spoiler: show
I will be asking you all for a list of what you want that you missed after the auctions.

We will see what we can do!

Alec

Oh, Alec is SO ignoring that question. Good one. You see him snap at me for offering alternative groups?

I guess he won't be as likely to try and dig out a Raptor clipboard for me (or even a BSG one) since I keep not-worshipping him.

Hey, you can ask for me! He likes you!

Are you going to join the group listing their wins?

Yes, you are a bad archer, a real Parthian! :rofl:

I think I won't put my winnings list for the moment. Somehow I feel this info could be used in a weird way. (Alec & Co obviously know what I won, but...)

Not sure how this will continue; maybe we can ask "do you still have one of these...[duplicate of a common item]" or "I wonder if you have... [not previously seen item]"

Dying for a Raptor-Clip', eh?

Has a seller the right to cancel an Ebay offer? (the chairs...)

You think Alec "likes" me? :?: Well, I'm a sucker who fell for a lots of things, sure...

Sellers can cancel auctions at will before a bid goes up, I believe, and can cancel them really for anything. I think.

Yes, I really wanted a Raptor clipboard, no, I couldn't afford it. If I get the job this week, I can maybe start thinking about stuff. Or even a Galactica clipboard, the ones with the ears and tails.

Well, you haven't outright called him a liar twice, which I have, and an overcharging shyster to boot. :angel:

Well, looks like the so-called "wishlist" won't give anything:
