METAPHYSICAL GRAFFITI

CustomImage

Warehouse 13 artifacts are infused with some amazing powers, many linked to historical events – such as the Berlin Wall spray paint featured in the third-season episode “The 40th Floor.” The spray paint is infused with its original owner’s dream of seeing the Berlin Wall torn down. In present times, anything on which the paint is sprayed will disintegrate (and painting the anarchy symbol will speed up the process). VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a set of three cans of Berlin Wall spray paint featured in the episode – as well as a screen-used steam punk earpiece, Diana K. Snow’s business cards used by highest-ranking Warehouse Regent Adwin Kosain (it’s an anagram of his name), Sally Stukowski’s ring and a set of Regenbogen Spruhfarbe labels. Click here to see photos of each piece and claim your artifact from the Syfy hit Warehouse 13!

 

PINBALL WIZARD

As one of New York’s top young architects, it should come as no surprise that Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) has eclectic taste in décor. His apartment on How I Met Your Mother is loaded with insights into his interests and tastes, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of the most interesting pieces of set dressing from Ted’s place. The wood-and-metal vintage pinball playing surface (pictured above) that can be seen hanging on Ted’s wall in multiple episodes is now available to the HIMYM fan who casts the winning bid.

…WHAT THE ROCK IS WEARING

Casting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Hercules must have been a no-brainer. He has the size, the muscle and, unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1969’s Hercules in New York, the guy is a natural on screen. Fans of the actor/wrestler now have an amazing opportunity to own a piece of Dwayne Johnson’s filmography in the form of his complete, screen-worn Hercules costume from the film. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Hercules’ cuirass, skirt, vambraces, belt, vest, subligaria and boots. Click here to see the entire ensemble and get in on the bidding today!

 

DESIGNING WOMEN

The ladies of How I Met Your Mother had excellent taste in accessories, and whether it was Lily (Alyson Hannigan) on a teacher’s salary or Robin (Cobie Smulders) as an on-air newscaster – budget was not a concern. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering footwear worn on-screen by Lily and Robin, including a pair of Robin’s blue Manolo Blahnik open-toe pumps, gold Jimmy Choo slingbacks, nude leather Christian Louboutin shoes (original retail price of $860), brown suede Prada boots (original retail price of $1190), black leather Lamb open-toe pumps, black Guess zip-up shoes, and black leather Prada wedge sandals.

ANCIENT BLADES

hercu

In the ancient world, where one may encounter angry gods, giant lions and assorted monsters, it’s a good idea to carry a sharp blade – preferably a big one. Even Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), a demigod whose strength knew no match, carried a dagger for protection. VIP Fan Auctions is offering several screen-used pieces of ancient weaponry from the Hercules movie, including the title character’s dagger, a sword wielded by Gryza (Christopher Fairbanks), a set of sickles used by the Bessi Clan – and a lion shield used by Cotys’s Army. Don’t miss your chance to claim one of the remaining pieces of prop weaponry from Hercules – click here to view all of the available Hercules items and place your bid today!

 

COVER STORY

cover

When 33-year-old Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) designed Goliath National Bank (demolishing the historic Arcadian Hotel in the process), he became the youngest architect to design a New York City skyscraper – a distinction that landed him on the cover of New York magazine. A copy of the magazine featuring Ted on the cover – featured on-screen in the first two episodes of the seventh season (pictured above) – is now available to the How I Met Your Mother fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. This amazing piece of publishing memorabilia also features several clever inside jokes, such as the cover blurb that says “Honeywell & Cootes: Planet Earth’s Personal Bodyguard” (a reference to the law firm where Marshall works as an environmental lawyer); “By George! Is Van Smoot Van Smitten?” (a reference to the Admiral); “Mystery vs. History: Is it Better Not to Know?” (a reference to the sixth episode of the seventh season); and “Willem… Dafoe” (reference to Marshall’s fifth-season observation that actor WiIlem Dafoe’s name sounds like a frog talking to a parrot). The back cover has an ad for the Goliath National Bank credit card. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to own this special issue – click here for more information and to place a bid today – this auction ends soon!

 

CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT

herc-cotys

The job description for “king” doesn’t often include words like “meek,” “kind” or “merciful” – except for fairy tales. In the ancient world, huggable and lovable kings didn’t last very long, and Cotys (John Hurt) was built for the crown. Ultimately, even the most vicious kings meet their brutal ends, and Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) saw to it that Cotys would vacate the throne. The nasty royal’s downfall, however, left an opportunity to fans of the hit film – VIP Fan Auctions is offering Cotys’ screen-worn crown (pictured above) to the fan who casts the winning bid. The golden (actually fiberglass) royal headpiece features sculpted feathers and a crow emblem on the front – click here for photos and more information – and place your bid today!

 

MACHINE MAN

Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) loves robots. During the run of How I Met Your Mother, he has gone to Robots vs. Wrestlers events. He played a robot in The Barney Stinson Theater Experience. And he has a collection of robots in his bedroom. VIP Fan Auctions is making part of Barney’s collection available to the fan who casts the winning bid – the first set includes three metal toy robots (two with their original box), and a second set also features three of Barney’s ‘bots. Click here or here to see photos of the available robots and claim your part of Barney’s unique collection today.

 

“TRULY ASTONISHING”

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

It’s bad enough to be jilted at the altar, but when the experience becomes a schlocky-yet-hit motion picture written by “the guy who got the girl,” it’s devastating for the poor guy left behind. Of course, when it plays out on How I Met Your Mother, it’s also really funny for everyone else. That’s what happened to Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) after Stella (Sarah Chalke) left him at the altar to get back together with her ex, Tony – and adding insult to injury, “Jed Mosley” becomes the butt of the film’s joke – and despite Ted’s best efforts to ignore it, The Wedding Bride goes on to become the fifth-highest grossing film of all time! Ted’s hearbreak can be your gain, however, as VIP Fan Auctions is now offering the movie poster for The Wedding Bride (starring Chris Kattan, Jason Lewis and Malin Akerman) to the How I Met Your Mother fan who casts the winning bid! Click here for photos, more information and to get in on the bidding. This auction is ending soon!

 

HERE COMES THE JUDGE

MarshallJudge

How I Met Your Mother’s Marhsall Eriksen (Jason Segel) had a bumpy road to becoming a judge. He endured a horrible boss as a corporate lawyer for Goliath National Bank, an eccentric boss at the environmental law firm Honeywell and Cootes – and his career trajectory caused serious trouble in his marriage when it conflicted with Lily’s (Alyson Hannigan) career opportunity in Italy. Ultimately, it is revealed that Marshall is elected to the New York State Supreme Court in 2020. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a memento from this historic election in the form of Marshall’s screen-used rally poster (see above), which features a grayer and more distinguished Marshall Eriksen about to become one of the most powerful people in New York!
