Yeah, that was it... I forgot all about the Disney memorabilia... That's where their history is, there have been some accusations of them reproducing Disney theme park props and selling them as real. They claim they will provide paperwork proving the items are legit (and refund your money if you aren't satisfied), but that's like producing Warner Bros paperwork to prove all your Harry Potter props are legit. Disney does not sell these things to the public (except in very rare instances), they have to 'leave the property' first. So even if it is legit, they have no way of proving it unless you find a cast member that admits to stealing it.The place to find the auction is earlier up the thread.
"History" implies they are the new Premier props....and with that you pretty much damn them.
They don't have a history. From my checking of the RPF threads Rylo brought up a thread that died after one extra person chiming in...I can't comment on it because I know nothing about Disney signage and wouldn't know a replica from original.
Wow. That is pretty heavy stuff you just said there...
i would say as I posted on the Propstop I heard the same thing when I wrote my initial propstop article questioning what some of the pieces were and then I took a few minutes to actually call the company and discovered that lions gate was pretty much dictating how it was sold and how it was presented to them.
after a few days the lots were taken down or altered and production used was widely put on pieces were the true history wasn't known.
I stand by my original article but I also stand by the second Article where they with help from the community cleaned up the auction pretty much overnight.
If if you know something I don't please feel free to add it here.
Fong is Fong Sam from Black Sparrow Auctions. Fong defected from Profiles in History to do his own thing and the first big thing he landed was the Hunger Games Auction.I read some where on one of these forums that theme park got their hunger game items from a person name fong. Fong kept the screenused items and auctioned them off. The non screen used items and extras that were not used were sold to theme park. According to what I read, fong made sure and told them the items were extras doubles and stunts. I read it online which is why I am askin if this was the company
Certainly they learmed a lot and have continued to with key members of the community that production used is sometimes s better te than trying to say this is from a specific scene which is never a smart move... Even with a tag.
as opposed to the original Screen-Used auction listing that CLEARLY stated:The prop up for auction was made to be worn by Jon Voight in his role as Patrick Gates.
An improvement I suppose, but they seem to be going out of their not to mention that 1- It was NOT used on screen in any way (no proof Voight even touched it), and 2- as I mentioned above, it doesn't even look like the screen used one. The way it's worded one might still assume it was used by Voight during filming. That's the kind of 'shady wording tactics' I'd like to see any legitimate auction house stop using... Especially when a more detailed explanation is available online.This style hat is similar to the hat seen on screen, but is an unused back-up to the screen used version.
