WARRIOR BLANKET

CustomImage-1

Lakota leader Sitting Bull was a metaphorical force of nature as he led his people to victory at the Battle of Little Bighorn. In Warehouse 13 mythology, the legend of Sitting Bull takes on supernatural status as his riding blanket is discovered to merge horse and rider into one – allowing the horse to reach great speed and strength, at a critical cost to the rider. Not surprisingly, this artifact takes on particular value at horserace tracks, as seen in the fourth-season episode “The Sky’s the Limit.” VIP Fan Auctions is now offering pieces of Sitting Bull’s riding blanket, as well as screen-used case files and racing forms featured on-screen in Warehouse 13.

THE BIG HURT

Few weapons will inflict as much damage as a giant club – with teeth. When said club (pictured above) is brandished by Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules, its impact can be particularly vicious. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans of the son of Zeus the toothed club that Hercules uses on-screen in the epic film currently in theaters. Created by the Hercules props department, the club is inscribed with a lion carving on each side. Its handle is wrapped in leather cord, and the weapon is 43 inches long. For more information and additional photos of this gnarly implement of destruction, click here and get in on the bidding today!

LION HEART

HERCULES

Half god, half mortal, the legendary Hercules (played by Dwayne Johnson) returns to the big screen re-imagined as an ancient mercenary who trades on his legend as a sword-for-hire. When duty calls on him to live up to his truly heroic roots, however, the son of Zeus shows his power. Fans of the mythic character now have an opportunity to claim a piece of Zeus’ son by placing the winning bid on the lion head (see photo above, is it the fabled Neamean Lion?) that Hercules wore as a headdress on-screen during the film. Do not miss your chance to own this unique piece of wardrobe worn by one of the planet’s greatest heroes and top action stars! Click here for additional photos and more information – and place your bid at VIP Fan Auctions today! No actual lions or humans were harmed in the construction of Hercules’ headdress.

 

CLAIM THE SWORD OF HERCULES

Do you smell what The Rock is wielding? (For you high-brow action movie fans, that’s a wrestling reference.) The wooden long-sword used on-screen by Dwayne Johnson in the epic film Hercules is available to the winning bidder at VIP Fan Auctions. Constructed from bamboo and designed by the film’s prop-masters to look like a metal blade, the sword is 55-inches long and used by the son of Zeus to battle the evil warlord.

PURPLE REIGNS

GOO

The purple stuff, a.k.a. neutralizer, is often the only substance keeping overly active artifacts from reaping total chaos. To keep tabs on the purple ooze in Warehouse 13, the facility is equipped with Neutralizer Level Monitors – one of which is available to the fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. The unique prop has been distressed by the Warehouse 13 props department to reflect some of the messy action its seen, but any toxins have likely been, well… neutralized. Whether you’re a Warehouse 13 fan who wants to pay subtle homage to the Syfy series by bringing a piece of the Warehouse home – or, if you have possession of neutralized artifacts and buckets of purple stuff in your home gooery – get in on the bidding today. Click here to see photos of the monitor and for more information about it. But don’t wait too long – this auction is ending soon!
