  1. put me down for the cutlass. I do loves me a pirate.. yaharrrrr!!

    I was going to say the life size model of the monster from the Village, and then I remember I am a wuss!!

    How exciting! LOL

    1. My brother had a Dracula mask when I was younger and it still freaks me out today! Don’t think I would be able to have the life size creature either!

      I’ll update the post after the auction takes place, see how much everything went for 😀

  2. I wouldn’t say what’s on offer really excites me but the The Doors sound equipment is the most intriguing (and pricey!). Wouldn’t mind the Charlton Heston figure…so I can throw things at him. 😉

    1. If you head over to the site I’m sure you’ll find something you’d like! There are more props than you can shake a stick at 😀

      Not a fan of Heston then, eh? Can’t say I’ve seen him in that much, just El Cid really!
