    I kind of wish I could afford this. I had a sealed board game once but sold it almost immediately in my auctions for Rick Biggs' kids so I don't remember it much at all.

    Okay...this is cool. Ever wish you could have a B5 Pilot name patch with *your* name on it? I just got one:

    The picture kind of sucks, partly because of the silver thread (I think) but it really looks nice. It's meant for a jacket, about 4.5" wide and 2.75" tall.

    Nice B5 100th episode commemorative shirt.

    Found an interesting cache of new B5 items listed in a surplus plumbing supply store on eBay.

    Described as purchased new, are baseball caps, T-shirts and...

    a really nice 100th episode long-sleeve (denim?) shirt.

    I couldn't resist this IPX baseball cap.

    Okay, this may be a little spammy because I'm going to post the link here as well as in the Be a Santa thread down in Off Topic. But I think it's a worthy cause and I'm hoping everybody will see this and help spread the word about Pat's program.

    I've listed a rare Volume 15 of the Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski and ALL proceeds will go to benefit Patricial Tallman's Be A Santa program for Penny Lane. Bid high and bid often!

    The card Omaha linked to went for only $103.51, a good price for that card, I think.

    Here's an item you don't see very often at all:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/160926305603...84.m1423.l2649

    Don't know if it'll sell at that price and the envelope that came with the print isn't mentioned. I think the lack of that would decrease the value a lot.

    linky

    Very rare card, auto of JMS from the Skybox set. I've never seen it go under a couple hundred bucks, and it's at 27 bucks now with 19 hours to go. #86 of 900.

    Somewhere, there was a website tracking each of those 900 cards ... Don't think I have the link anymore, but yeah.

    Who's to say he's sane now? And, given what he undertook back then, I think there is an argument to be made that he wasn't sane then.

    Just got my Vol. 8 Script book yesterday. Have to say, it's very cool. The foreword is fascinating and the bonus material (concept art in the back) is very nice to see. I had no idea that the show almost came to an end after Season 3. The work JMS put in to keep it afloat was nothing short of AMAZING. I'm suprised the guy's still sane!

    Also, I find the structuring and writing process fascinating, so it's definitely of interest to see the scripts like this.

    I just snagged a Vol. 5 on Amazon for GBP 14.99 + postage. It'll no doubt take me some time to find them all, but I like a challenge. Prices for whole collections are still a bit inflated when i see them, so I'll just grab separate volumes as and when I can.

    If anyone has duplicates and want's to help out. PM me.

    I think this may be the case for many fans who weren't directly involved in the old discussions groups that JMS frequented. I suppose in these more challenging financial times, older fans may be selling their script books, or they just naturally end up in the second hand book market. A shame really, but nice for those of us who missed the boat the first time around.
    I got started when script book #12 came out and I have not looked back. Also a long time fan, but only recently done more about B5 stuff.

I'm assuming that the people who want them in the future are new fans that suddenly discover the books are out there.

    Well, it's been quite a day. Having acquired Vol 2, I made an offer on Vols 11 & 12 from another eBay seller and got both for $25.

    I also found a Volume 8 on UK Amazon for รบ7.00. So, it's going well! I am fast accumulating script books

    If anyone can hook me up with other volumes or sees them floating about online for a reasonable price, do let me know.

    I think it's because real incomes are down and so a lot of people just don't have the money to spend on that kind of a purchase. e.g. My good TV died a couple of months ago and I've been running on the backup 19" color 4:3 TV from the 1970s, which only has a 300 ohm antenna input (I use a 300 ohm to 75 ohm converter but am limited to RF video. Composite video, which my switch uses is not possible.), and that TV is going bad, too. I've got to replace the TV (with a 32" LED Sharp AQUOS, >$400), plus there's a lot of other stuff competing for the money, too, e.g. the OPPO Blu-Ray player. [shrug] B5 scriptbooks are way down on the list. OTOH, new CRUSADE scriptbooks (What The Hell Happened 2, 3 & 4) would shoot to the top of the list.

    Right now, if I want to watch DVDs, it's on my 15" laptop PC (which IS EXCELLENT.), and the 19" TV makes people look like this.
