I asked Desi DosSantos, co-founder of ScreenUsed about his thoughts on their latest offerings. "With this year's annual auction, it looks like props and wardrobe came out of the woodwork from the 1980s and 1990s. Of course we have many items from more recent productions, and even a Bumblebee vehicle from a film that has not hit theaters yet!" he explained.
Thanks, Desi, but what do we care about all that? We don't! We care about one thing and one thing only: Star Trek! There's twenty-five Trek lots this time around so with that in mind, here goes!
See the full ScreenUsed catalog HERE.
In the interest of full disclosure, lot numbers 178, 184 and 185 were consigned by yours truly.
I'll be honest – not an exciting piece, IMO. Maybe it's your cup of tea, though, so check it out yourself.
While not a scree-used piece, this was taken from the molds they used to create that weird 3D version of the crew's heads during the time warp sequence. It's Kirk, that's all you need to know!
This is one of the best pieces in the auction, IMO. I own one of these that is not this nice. Most of the time the versions of this phaser that is offered at auction is a solid resin background piece. But not this one – this is a functioning hero version and is as good as it gets. It's stunning! (Get it? Stuning? I'm here all week.)
I'm a sucker for graphics and this piece doesn't disappoint. A 39" x 27" it's huge and would make quite a striking display.
Another DS9 panel and this one is even bigger. 43.5" long and it's screen-matched. Cool piece.
Yet another great DS9 piece, this time it's 38.5" wide and shows little Klingon ships. Anything is better with Klingon stuff.
Just what every Cardassian needs – a holster. These are pretty hard to come by. The phaser isn't a production piece, but works nicely as a filler.
Build your own Cardassian head? I guess. Naming it "Kevin" is optional.
What every Cardassian haberdasher needs. Direct from Garak's shop, no less.
The man, the legend. Garak is a fan-favorite and here's your chance to own a piece of his wardrobe. (Fun fact: remember at the climax of Dirty Harry when Clint Eastwood confronts the murderer and asks him "Do you feel lucky?" He's talking to Andrew Robinson who, some 22 years later, would play a certain Cardassian tailor. You're welcome).
Not gonna lie – this one's a little creepy. But in a cool way, naturally. You can have Odo stare at you any time, day or night. Especially night.
Any panel with a ship is a cool thing. No exception here.
An episode-specific piece made for a Captain. Nuff said.
Made for "Stratagem'. Slap it on your face.
Clappers are always popular and this one is from the best TNG movie, First Contact. Complete with actor/director Frakes' name!
I've always been a big fan of this style of rifle. Pretend to walk upside-down on the hull of the Enterprise when you win it!
This is a one-of-a-kind piece – a model used in the TNG episode "When the Bough Breaks". It looks amazing on-screen.
A great piece from a classic episode, partner.
Here's a genuine rarity – an LCARS panel used in Data's Ops station on the bridge. Mounted in a custom-built lightbox, this is ready for display. How often do you get a chance to own a literal piece of the Starship Enterprise that was used by a main character? Almost never. Don't miss out.
An episode-specific prop used in "Timescape" by the main characters. Fun stuff.
More panels, this time Ferengi. Pull out some latinum.
This is one of those great props that you see in various episodes throughout the run of the show. And in pretty colors, to boot.
From a limited run of masks of everyone's favorite android.
A unique item, here's a model used for the Romulan Prison from "Birthright". It looked great in the finished episode.
Made specifically for the episode, "Rascals", this is actually two LCARS panels – the large top piece and the smaller "keyboard" piece below it – all mounted in a thin lightbox panel, ready for display. This can clearly be seen on-screen. Look amazing in-person.
Made specifically for the episode, "Chain of Command" and shown on the bridge, this is also two LCARS panels – the large top piece and the smaller "keyboard" piece below it– all mounted in a thin lightbox panel, ready for display. This can clearly be seen on-screen. This will be a beautiful piece on your wall.
So that's it for the ScreenUsed Star Trek offerings. Something for everyone in the mix. Check out all the photos at the ScreenUsed site and get your bids in now!
