Vorlon...action figure...is that an oxymoron?

That is exactly what I was looking for! However the link to the more expensive one looked exactly like the first link. But that was what I was looking for.

Oops, try this link. I've ordered from them before and they ship quickly.

Somebody mentioned needing the "In Valen's Name" comic trilogy or this other one

Here are some Micro-Machines

Lots of ship figurines

This link leads to a whole *bunch* of copies of the Jeanne Cavelos Techno-Mage trilogy

Have fun!

Jan
Oh! Set #5!!!!! I have longed for that set, and it shall be mine.

Thanks for the link!

From the looks of it, this is bootleg. It talks about the interactive guide to B5 which probably wouldn't really work on anybody's computer anymore. I wouldn't touch it without proof that it was licensed.

And speaking of which, I don't need to let people know that any bloopers you see are bootleg, do I? They are-every single one. They stem from an item stolen from JMS at a convention several years ago.

I admit to bidding on a copy back when I had my account. Someone outbid me, which went over the amount I was willing to pay for and I didn't want to pay a ridiculous amount anyway. My max was $30 bucks, and it held for about 2 days.

Well, if it helps, pretty much all of them are *horrible* dubs. Copy-machine-effect to the 50th power. And the reason I know was because I bought a couple at somebody's request so they could try to trace the origin but that plan fell through.

That said, if any of you ever have the chance to see the B5 music videos by John Hugins, DO!!!!! He's usually at DragonCon each year at the least. They are SO good! You might remember the Rick Biggs memorial that came out shortly after Rick died? That was done by John, aka Fenn. (and the reason I put the two together was because there are two of the music videos on the bloopers, still very bad dubs.)

I have some of it and other things I've sold off. I never got into the action figures much but I did pick up a few loose ones to 'guard' my script shelves. Most of what I'm looking for wasn't widely available.

Here's a few things....

Sierra game promo watch

Sierra game promo mouse pad

More B5 magazines

Two Vorlons

I got them then, too. Most people don't know that they went for $5 each back then. Frankly, I thought the watch looked kind of cheap but I loved the shadow ship on the face. Mine got sold during a bout of unemployment a couple of years ago.

Ahhh....life is good! Speading of Ebay, I got home tonight to find that I'd won an auction for a genuine, set-used 'Murder, She Wrote' script written by our own JMS....for $10 plus postage! Whoo-hoo!

These Rawcliffe pewter figures have always been pretty hard to find.

These miniatures are cute also but less detailed.

Cool, well from the Pewter figures I most like the Sheridan figure - the little ones have a funny choice of characters! The Soul hunter or Trakis *muahaha* !

Thanks for presenting the links!

I think they were sort of based on episodes, weren't they? I never saw them when they were first out.

You're welcome. Here's an item you don't see often, a script for 'The Fall of Night' that was originally sold by the B5 Fan Club.

CAUTION: Reading B5 (and/or JMS) scripts can be habit forming. Even one exposure can cause permanent addiction.

My name is Jan, and I'm a JMS script addict.
