Trekcetera Museum Auction a Success!


The Trekcetera Museum Auction was a success! 

The Trekcetera Museum Auction by Propworx happened on Sunday, August 18th, 2019, and was a smashing success! Over 200 lots were sold and the overall gross was just about $200,000. Of this, $165,000 was proceeds from the sale of assets from the Trekcetera Museum.

Records Set! 

The highlight of the auction was the Doctor's costume from Voyager which hit a record $16,000. With Buyer's Premium, that is $20,000, a record for a Voyager costume. The second highest was the Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal costumes which went for $8,500. The Borg Alcove and the Voyager Phaser tied for third at $6,500. Overall, prices were very strong and the auction did about 35% better than expected.



And Axanar Benefited! 

Since I own Propworx, I decided to take the first $10,000 of commission profits from this sale and use it to help fund the first shoot of Axanar this October. Thank you all for helping here!

The Museum

Trekcetera was the first-ever officially licensed Star Trek museum.  But it was more than just Star trek and included items from movies and TV shows, mainly  ones that were filmed in Alberta, Canada (where the museum was located in the town of Drumheller) like Brokeback Mountain and Hell on Wheels, and even parts of the original Superman from 1978.

Propworx suing Tiana Armstrong for Fraud, Breach of Contract




Last year Propworx was involved in a series of Star Trek prop sales with prop dealer Tiana Armstong of Hero Prop LLP.  Unfortunately, these transactions did not go as anticipated and Propworx is now suing Tiana Armstrong for fraud and breach of contract. 

The fraud claim we filed is based the the fact that Tiana claimed she only charges 20% to sell an item, but in fact, she was selling my items for 2-3 what she said she was and pocketing the difference. 

As to the breach of contract claim, Tiana asked me to bring a seller to the table to match with her buyer, much like a real estate deal.  I brought in Jarrod Hunt, who had worked for me for 8 years before starting his own prop company, to be 50-50 partners with me on my part of the deal.   But in the middle of the negotiations, Tiana and her partner went around my back to Jarrod and they agreed to cut me out of the deal, worth hundreds of thousands in fees.  So I am suing her and her company for breach of contract. 

So that is the high level of the lawsuit.  Feel free to contact me if you want more information.
