Original Darth Vader Costume For Auction – MOM I NEED TO BORROW SOME MONEY!

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

(AP) The Force can be with you – for a price.

Christie’s auction house says it is selling an original Darth Vader costume from the “Star Wars” movie franchise.

The jet-black helmet, mask and armor worn by the intergalactic villain are expected to sell for between 160,000 pounds and 230,000 pounds ($250,000 and $365,000) at a sale of pop culture memorabilia next month.

Christie’s said Wednesday that the costume is thought to have been made for “The Empire Strikes Back,” the second film in George Lucas’s sci-fi series, released in 1980.

Christie’s did not name the owner, identified only as an American private collector.

The sale takes place Nov. 25 in London.

FORD @ NY COMIC CON? EMERGENCY MEETING!!

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

The Sons of Ford will be taking an emergency trip to this Saturday’s Comic Con in NYC. We originally weren’t planning on attending, until Brent noticed the following on the CON schedule:

Is it....Could it...be?

Is it…Could it …be? There’s nothing about it on the website so we ¬†called the box office and even THEY don’t know exactly what this will be. Could it be nothing? Sure? Can we take that chance? You’re an idiot. So if you’re going to the Con this weekend, no, we don’t have a booth, but you’ll know where to find us at 10am on Saturday. Come say hi.

See you at the Con.

(We’ll also be sure to check out some of the other panels/booths:new Lost Boys movie, the Science of BSG, Jim Lee etc, ¬†you can check out the complete schedule here)
