MTV Hosts auction of Music and Hollywood Related Memorabilia on ebay. Info at coolcrap.mtv.com

Toys R Gus one of the greatest Star Wars Collecting sites in the world was involved in a domain name dispute with Toys R US

Battlestar Galactica ship recently restored

MTV recently has been announcing their auction of "coolcrap" on their cable channel. The MTV url to read more about this auction is coolcrap.mtv.com The url on ebay to view all of the things they have up for auction is http://cgi3.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewListedItems&userid=mtvcoolcrap Distinctly on the air MTV did mention a Marilyn Manson Celebrity Deathmatch clay figure for sale but it is not present in the list of items up for auction. The prices being realized for the items in the auction are quite humorous. $2375 is the current bid on a pool table used in a Madonna video for instance. All of the item descriptions are extremely limited. The proceeds from the auction are going to a charitable organization. That one is MTV's stop the violence campaign. However the campaign often spreads a false reality of crime and criminal misuse of firearms. MTV's stop the violence campaign often amounts to a "Disarm ones neighbor and countryman campaign" The auction is somewhat interesting however and it is the first to be promoted so much to such a wide audience. That might help explain the bids so far.

Toys R Gus has recently had somewhat of a debacle with Toys R Us over his domain name and its close similarity to Toys R US. This is particularly interesting because the new Star Wars movie is about to be unveiled across the United States. www.toysrgus.com is the best Star Wars collecting related site in the world featuring information about toys, promotional material, replica costumes, original props and costumes and more. Read more about this matter which was recently settled at www.toysrgus.com

Recently the famous Battlestar Galactica ship was sold from Universal Studios to a private collector. Some restoration work was done on this massive ship. Ed Miarecki helped perform most of the restoration work. His site is at http://www.EdMiarecki.com/index.html Andrew Probart the original costume design sketch artist for the Cylons helped recreate a miniature 4 inch across or so Matte Painting of the landing bay as part of the new restoration work.
