65th week of IAW auctions (auctions ending April 22nd)
While this is the 65th week of auctions, It is titled Week 70 to be consistent with the Star Trek Auctions Archive. There was no Week 69, so there have been 5 weeks off since these auctions began.
This was a bit of a light week, but there were a few gems.
The Ensign Ro Starfleet Uniform went for $ 2,605 and was worth every penny. I was outbid on this one, but it did go to a Forum member. This was a great piece as it is from the very memorable scene when Ro and Picard beam down to the planet where the Bajoran refugees are. Ro gives the jacket of her costume to a little girl. We rarely see this costume pulled apart like that, and so this is a rare variant costume. Plus, Ro was a beloved and under-used character.
The Jadzia Dax Starfleet Uniform at $ 2,375 was nice as these look great on display. Terry Farrel was about 5'10" so this are long and trim. My buddy Dana had his on display and it looked fantastic, so this buyer did well, though he did pay a bit more than expected. These go for around $ 1,800 usually. Still a decent price.
The Data Starfleet Generations Uniform at $ 1,900 was OK, but it had no undershirt, which was a shame. Being that this was used by Data for a short period of time, and only at the end of the movie, it is a rare Data costume. I have the Picard version like this and love the rarity of it. I think the price was right, but the winner will need to display it with an undershirt to really look good.
The distressed Commander Sisko Starfleet Uniform at $ 1,283 was a very good deal. Yes, it is distressed, but this is a Captain's costume that went for less than $ 1,300! A steal in my book. We have seen this before with Archer costumes, and if you budget is limited, then you need to look at distressed versions as they go cheap!
The Motion Picture Class D Starfleet Lt. uniform went for $ 1,247. However, it was actually a Class A, not a "D", which is a jumpsuit. I screwed up my BidNip and so I lost this beauty. I had meant to bid $ 1,600 as I think this one is worth it. It has rank braid, which is rare, and it just looks awesome! I keep saying that
The Class D Sciences Jumpsuit went for $ 1,225. Now, this was in fact a Class D. Another great example of TMP costumes and it was in great shape with built in boots, which I think makes all the difference.
Finally, the stunt Major Kira Bajoran Militia Uniform went for a reasonable $ 915.
As far as props go:
The Voyager Doctor's Mobile Emitter was a key prop and went for a reasonable $ 2,551. This was the one and only version IAW had and so it was in high demand. The paint job seemed a little off, but that doesn't take away from a really great prop.
The Enterprise E Computer Console at $ 2,351 was about right. Everyone seems to love these, and who can resist having a piece of the Enterprise Bridge in your house! I hope we see more of them!
The Starfleet EVA Phaser Rifle at $ 1,426 is a personal fav of mine, and I am acquiring one of the hero versions of this. None the less, the rubber stunt ones like this are still very cool and priced right I think. The rubber is pretty hard and these will hold up well. Some people don't like this version, but I do. Plus we have only seen these in one movie!
The Klingon Negh'var Test Model went pretty high at $ 885. These were simple test models, and so have no detail. So interesting, but a bit high I think.
The Defiant Sciences Station Scope at $ 836 was a steal. I am bummed I didn't go for this. I mean, having one of these mounted on your desk at work? How cool would that be? I think the last one like this went for about $ 1,700, so this was less than half that! It is clearly the best buy of the week!
The Reman Starship Corridor Model at $ 812 was a good deal on a very cool piece. I think everyone should own one of these models! They really help you understand the process shows go through to bring sets to life. My Romulan Senate Model is one of my favorite pieces, so when you see models like this, jump at them!
The Enterprise Dr. Phlox Medical Injector w/ Case was a steal at $ 777. A beautiful prop with a nice case for display.
