    According to the flip book the seller is hoping it will be displayed in a museum and is selling it as one lot. $$$.

    Oh my Lord I want to see that in a museum. Maybe Lucas will buy it for his museum of narrative arts.

    Oh to be able to get a tape measure and a camera close to the Draconia. Oh please let somebody buy this who will let them be photographed. Not a private collector who hoards and hides them. Thanks to Gary for finally letting them go free !

    I never knew that this was all owned by one guy. Seriously. Did he collect them over time? That must have been a pretty big master quest.

    As awesome as the draconia and Galactica are, the real treat is the warhawk. It's like the slave 1 of the Larson-verse

    I know, right?

    I'd like to know more about this guy and how he got them. This is such a serious collection.

    That is the funniest thing I've heard in a while! We'll see if anyone wants to pony up the cash + buyers's premium + shipping costs (~$10K) + storage. (Though, if they aren't balking at the opening bid, another $200K isn't gonna put them off.)

    I think I started hyperventilating when I saw the catalogue pics. Nice closeup of the 1/24 Harrier pilot in the viper - might have to repaint mine to match.

    I just hope they end up somewhere open to the public....

    Just getting this PDF has made the auction worth it to me. I made so many of these ships out of lego when I was a kid-- based on nothing but some blurry Starlog photos.

    The only one missing is the Merc fighter from BSG that became the Draconian Fighter in Buck Rogers. I loved that thing.

    The buck Rogers might even be my favorite ship ever. I'd love a 1/48 scale!

    Has anyone every built the 1/72 that came out from fantastic plastic?

    Hah! My thoughts exactly! But I am not sure if he still holds a grudge against BSG, after all these years.

    Are you talking about that lawsuit? I didn't think it had anything to do with Lucas. It was a 20th century fox thing.

    I imagine that, considering Lucas' relationship with mcquarrie, it wasn't really a problem

    AFAIK he was really angry about BSG trying to surf on the wave that Star Wars created and that a lot of the FX guys worked on it, especially John Dykstra and Lorne Peterson, although RMcQ worked on it, too.

    I believe we're talking about this:

    https://www.mopop.org/

    Which did used to have the EMP name, but has become so much more now.
    It would definitely be the best home for the pieces.

    I did see the BSG exhibit with the replica Galactica and the full size vipers from neu bsg.

    It was a great day, but I was VERY disappointed that for some reason they had removed
    Vulpa from the display. (the gold/copper looking cylon Paul won in an auction some time ago)

    The Hatchet/Draconian fighter is a completey separate model/design built specifically for BR. (It was sold on eBay many many years ago for a relatively low price. I was unsure of it's authenticity and kept my bid low to protect myself. Of course, AFTER the auction, I found out it was real.) The "Antique Viper" from BSG does bear a resemblance to the Hatchet Fighter, but they ARE different models. (Profiles sold the Antique Viper several years ago.)

    George Lucas has enough models from Star Wars, as well as a large collection of ORIGINAL Norman Rockwell artwork and vintage movie posters that he doesn't need to bother with models from a second-rate TV show.......

    I have this image of a bored oil sheik or Martin Shkreli himself using them for skeet-shooting after snorting a head-full of coke.
