Spike's Necklace to be on eBay. Reportedly the "soul-holder crystal amulet" will be part of a slew of multi-fandom memorabilia to be auctioned off on July 29.

The URL to the direct auction is here: http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=28269&item=6545188131

Cool......

I would love a Robby the Robot replica. I still have vivid childhood memories of my first viewing of Forbidden Planet. Although the most vivid are of the indelibly lovely Anne Francis, not the robot.

Charisma, I'm from the dumb side of town: why would you destroy the amulet?
Lol. It is ugly and it represnts Spike who is my least favorite character.

Now it 'represents' Spike? Ookay...

Btw, if you'd really do that....get it and film yourself smashing it I mean, then that might possibly have made for the weirdest link on Whedonesque ever.

Me I'm just still laughing over the fact that part of Darth Vader's belt is in that gadget gizmo that comes with it. Oh and I'm really damn curious who can and actually will fork up this kind of money for this thing. We have some actual props ourselves but when I think of how cheap they were and how ridiculously expensive this is....man. We really lucked out! And I can't imagine ever paying this much for it, no matter how rich I was.

Well, okay if I was George Lucas-rich. Or Bill Gates-rich.
If you feel that strongly, it might be cheaper to buy a Spike action figure and stick (wooden) pins in it. Do they make wooden pins?
Get a small enough dowel rod and you can make your own.
Charisma, your comments are out of line. You've been warned two times already this month, this is the third and final time.
I hope I am not out of line but I would suggest to you Charisma that you simply not click on links that refer to Spike.

The mere mention of Spike seems to annoy you to the point of "must comment negatively now in case there is anyone anywhere who doesn't know how much you dislike Spike"

I believe it would save you, and I know for certain me, a lot of irritation if you simply avoided those threads.
Xane: Caroline has commented on the situation, it would be best if the matter was now dropped by fellow posters.
To get this screeching back on topic. :-) I saw the list of things to be auctioned a few weeks ago and the estimate for the amulet was iirc around $7000.00. Wow. But I guess they figure it will get that much as one recently went in excess of that amount. Ah, the scrubbing bubbles power of Spike and the 'verse. ;-)
The amulet sold for 7500 at my Angel party a couple years ago. There were only two made, according to the props guy.

And yes, it's terribly ugly and heavy. I think I wore it while doing dishes. Sadly, I remained corporeal.
"And yes, it's terribly ugly and heavy. I think I wore it while doing dishes. Sadly, I remained corporeal."

LOL!! Not the prettiest piece is it. I always wanted the Gem of Amara, linked to both shows and both vamps. But sadly the price was just too high. :-(

Er....you wanted to be incorporeal? Whatever did you want to get up to? ;-)
That really is an ugly hunk of rock. But if I had that kind of money, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I could put it in a glass case with a sign that says 'Break in case of apocalypse.'
Is there a returns policy if it doesn't work?
Hmmm...Maybe I could send someone the money, they could mail it to me, and when I open the package here in LA, Spike will appear! (Cuz it's obvious to activate it, it has to be mailed to LA from somewhere else...) Then there's the problem of him being a ghost for a while. Then there's the other problem of hubby...eh, too much trouble in the end.
Allyson - you think the amulet didn't work when you wore it? But it did! Didn't I tell you? For some strange reason that very night that you wore the amulet - MY dishes got done! Isn't that so very odd? So now we can add a "dish doin' guarantee" with the amulet. That should help it sell even better.

Is there an indemnity insurance if it works?

Tries to think how you would collect on that if it did work.
