A few weeks ago, word surfaced that Battlestar Galactica fans would get the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of props and costumes from the show, in live and online auctions early next year.
What I haven’t seen much of online yet is chatter about the website that will be keeping us up to speed on the auction: http://www.battlestarprops.com
It’s well worth raving about.
Alec Peters of Propworx and Joe Beaudoin Jr of Battlestar Wiki have been given full access to tons of cool stuff and they’re sharing it with everyone through the website. You will find highly detailed descriptions of items, with explanations of how exactly they were used on the show. The guys are obviously enjoying the work they’re doing and their excitement clearly comes through in the writing. Some of my favourite stuff so far is the concept art for the sets, but all of it is worth the look. They are updating the site frequently with new material and even video content.
As it happens, we’ve got a 13th Colony connection. Steve Fronczek of future-past.com has been acting as a consultant for the project and the work he has already done on cataloguing props on his website has been cited as a source.
Great job guys!
And fans…you better start saving your pennies. You’ll need quite a few if you want your own Mark II Viper for the back yard.
