Gone but not forgotten.
A page from Starlog. Funny how small the market was back then.

That Jupiter looks weird

I still have that issue!
Kirk's uniform: unsold!
Jupiter 2 with only a $500 starting bid, too. Amazing.

Hummm...I guess that $500 at that time would mean about $5000 nowadays, no ?
It could explain things....

Back in the good ol' days when a Superman costume was really from the production and not from somebody's basement, eh Paul? :rolleyes

I, too, am flummoxed by the Jupiter 2 not getting a hit at a lousy $500 and a Robby replica going for $23K.

A screen used Jupiter at 5 grand would still be a steal.

Yeah but $23,500 for a REPLICA robby the robot... :eek

I'm wondering if that has to do with the viewpoint back then - Forbidden Planet a classic, Lost in Space - a kid's show. Not that that isn't true, but Lost in Space may hald a few more hearts today than Planet.

You got that right. Look at that moth eaten mess - even in the state it's in it doesn't get any cooler that that.

That Jupiter looks like something you'd find in a space graveyard. I'd still give my leg for it.

If I remember that was not an original Jupiter 2, but a replica.

I was at that auction. Super cool.

Now a days we see auctions all the time.
