"I have a phaser, only fired once to stop William Shatner from making another album" - Comic Book Guy (from "The Simpsons")

I just spent $199 on the "Get Smart" complete video release, so I'm out of this one. I'd rather have Max's shoe phone anyway.

Wait, they've released the complete "Get Smart" series?


Must have....

I wouldn't mind having the space dock or one of the worker bees seen in the first two movies. Or the Enterprise from the first movie... *swoooooosh*

In the first movie, the costume designer got into the vaults and found this fabric purchased ages ago (I think by Cecil B. DeMille). Hand embroidered with metallic and silk threads, he made 3 costumes for these tall aliens. At the time it was believed that they were the most expensive costumes ever worn by extras. (You have to look reaaaaally close to see them in the movie.) I wonder what happened to them?

Colleen? Did you know Riker's "boy toy" costume is up for auction?

UPDATE from the auction: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/15144783/wid/11915829?GT1=8618

NEW YORK - It looked like any other auction, until you noticed the guy with pointed Vulcan ears.

Christie’s boldly went Thursday where no auction house has gone before, kicking off a three-day sale of Star Trek memorabilia from the archives of CBS Paramount Television Studios. From costumes and props to blueprints and furniture, the auction featured more than 1,000 lots.

The sale started with battles over some lots. A captain’s chair once belonging to Jean-Luc Picard on the Starship Enterprise-E sold for a gavel price of $52,000 — far beyond the presale estimate of $9,000.

I imagine most items went for far more than the pre-auction estimate!

More updates:

Star Fleet Capt. Jean-Luc Picard commanded it. Now some Trekkie owns it.
A model of the Starship Enterprise used in the pilot and title sequences of Star Trek: The Next Generation sold for $576,000 Saturday at an auction of costumes, sets and props from 40 years of the Star Trek sci-fi franchise.

The 78-inch-long miniature of the "Enterprise-D," built by Industrial Light and Magic, debuted in 1987 in the episode Encounter at Farpoint, and then was used in many subsequent episodes, as well as the film Star Trek Generations.

More than 1,000 items from the archives of CBS Paramount Television Studios went on the block over three days at Christie's auction house, and by early afternoon on Saturday fans of the series had forked over more than $4.9 million for set furniture, pointy Vulcan ears and other props.

Some Christie's employees taking bids by telephone wore Star Trek uniforms, and a live feed of the auction was carried on the History Channel's website. Hmmm, wish I'd known that...

Other top sellers on Saturday's action included a replica of Capt. James T. Kirk's command chair from the bridge of the spaceship on the original Star Trek series.

The painted wood chair was only a re-creation for a 1996 episode ofStar Trek: Deep Space Nine that mixed action from that newer series with old footage, but it still sold for $62,400.
