Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day. It may have been the first bit of set dressing from the show that I ever saw on Ebay. Assuming it's the same one, of course...but how many pieces of wall tile from B5 ever hit the market? I don't recall the price back then but I *know* it wasn't any $499.99!!

Someone needs to buy the above for Looney. Actually I need several to decorate a room in my house.

Jan will appreciate this, or not?

#FREEBABYLON5

So glad I don't have to buy this because I already have several thanks to the Empress who created them.

Surely just a room would suffice?

HA! (also kind of funny that it's the only thing that seller has up at the moment)

(wondering how much she could get for the bundle of #FreeBabylon5 convention ribbons she just found the other day)

Yes I could make due with just one room. Actually all I need is about 20 of them.

All the richer that you know who it is. I assume this was someone you met at SDCC? Why would anyone want to part with one of those unless they were giving them away to raise awareness, which is the only reason I've ever parted with any I have received. Have you seen them show up on eBay before? I can't remember seeing any, but it seems like I should have considering how many you've treated people to at Cons and the lots I've handed out a few times. You would think someone else would have tried to make a buck off your efforts.

No idea who it is at all. I did #FreeBabylon5 tables at Space City Con (Galveston, TX), SDCC (San Diego, CA) and Loscon (Los Angeles, CA) so it could have been from either of those two. Can't say I've seen any show up elsewhere but then, it never occurred to me to look!

$500 for a wall hanging prop from B5. Now that's dedication! And shipping isn't free, I noticed. But it would be one great conversation starter to have in an office.

HA HA! Yes like in TREKKIES (1997). Do we have someone who has a Babylon 5 themed office like the Star Trek Dentist's office from that movie? I was just thinking of my own little abode, but having a public office decorated with B5 props and merchandise would be a great way to promote the show.

And to seek others who know the show. Or give yourself a sequence of questions to answer about where that odd looking thing came from. The opportunities....

For those interested, there are a number of B5 props and costumes up for auction here:
https://us.propstoreauction.com/view...t=&xclosed=yes

NOTE: DO NOT BID unless you're okay with the buyer premium and *really* high shipping charges!
