That being the case, I got to thinking about souvenirs and collectibles. I don't usually bother with such things because they just end up being dust collectors, not to mention usually costing an arm and a leg in the process. I'd probably end up spending a good chunk of time worrying that it'd accidentally get damaged, screwing the resale value. I was watching Trekkies a while back and marveling at how much some people were willing to pay for things like a Klingon's headbumps. Hell, one crazy nutjob bid something like $100 just to get a half-empty glass of water that John D'lancy had drunk from.
Still, I can't help but watch some of these tv shows and wish I could have some of the items shown. Think about it. Wouldn't it be cool as hell to have one of those light-up ZPMs for your very own? Or maybe one of the custom paintings that were made for the show like the one in the episode Harmony. There are just all sorts of cool little items that it would just be amazing to own just for the novelty value. Frankly, I'd love to turn that fucking ZPM into like the coolest desk lamp ever. I still remember when jirel re-posted someone's report that while digging in a scrap/junk yard, he managed to find a replica of the stargate that the production company had obviously tossed out. Lucky son of a bitch.
Oh well. If one of you ever runs across a ZPM prop and doesn't want it. Feel free to give me a ring. Anyone else have any tv/movie props that you'd just love to get your hands on?
