DARK SECRETS

JOURNALS

The journals of Archibald Browning (Matthew Del Negro) offer a fascinating and eerie look into the cult leader. They detail his life with Ingrid Beauchamp (Rachel Boston) in the early 1900s and contain his darkest spells – some written in his own blood – and feature chilling sketches (see above) throughout. The warlock’s books were discovered and later destroyed by Dash Gardiner (Eric Winter) before being reconstituted and stolen from Fair Haven. Luckily for the witches, these sought-after, screen-used books will soon rest safely in the hands of the Witches of East End fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. The auction includes two of Archibald’s journals and a stack of photos – all featured in the second-season episode “Smells Like King Spirit.” Click here for photos of these enchanted props, more information and to get in on the bidding today – but don’t wait. This auction ends soon!

 

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER ‘BOT

C

There are few weapons manufacturers that give the general public a warm-and-fuzzy feeling, but Tetravaal does build a darn fine robot (and with a little tweaking and uploading, even Tetravaal products can be humanized). Of course, the special effects manufacturers at WETA have a lot to do with the look and feel of the Tetravaal Scout robots featured in CHAPPiE, which translates to a phenomenal opportunity for SFX fanatics looking to reverse engineer some WETA handiwork. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a set of assembly line Scout parts straight from the Neill Blomkamp film to the fan who casts the winning bid. The parts include components from Scout robots and CHAPPiE parts, including pieces of head, torso, arms, legs and waist. Click here for a detailed listing – and photos – of the pieces. The winner of this auction will also receive a Tetravaal Pelican 1740 storage case. If you’re interested in sci-fi, special effects and creating cool stuff, don’t delay – this auction is ending soon!

 

STINSON REPUBLIC

StinsonFlag

Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) put Canada on notice back in How I Met Your Mother’s fifth-season episode “Duel Citizenship.” Referring to his beloved Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders), he declares, “I’m planting my flag in her, if you know what I mean –which you probably don’t – and getting the hell outta here. You may now return to being pointless.” One lucky fans of How I Met Your Mother, however, will be able to literally plant Barney’s flag anywhere. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the blue, production-used flag with Barney’s face on it (see above) to the fan who places the winning bid. Truly a unique piece of television history, the Stinson flag is a symbol of one of the medium’s most legen…. wait for it… dary characters.

SNAKEBITTEN

snakeyes

Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond) long possessed a relic of pure evil – the Serpens Clavem, which is used to open the door to Asgard – before destroying it on-screen during the Witches of East End first-season episode “Snake Eyes” when she clipped it from the arm sister Wendy (Madchen Amick) causing the enchanted snake to disintegrate. VIP Fan Auctions, however, managed to salvage the notorious artifact – a golden snake that has the power to entrance anyone who gazes into its red eyes – and it is now offering it to the fan who casts the winning bid! While the prop is a truly remarkable work of craftsmanship, there is no guarantee that it will not coil around the wrist of whoever takes possession of the Serpens Clavem and sink its teeth into her or his skin, so bid at your own risk!

IN ARMS WAY

chappie

Legendary New Zealand-based visual effects powerhouse WETA is responsible for creating some of the greatest moments in modern science fiction. And while state-of-the-art digital effects can bring new worlds to life, it takes a special, old-school kind of FX guru to create the little, gruesome details that stick with viewers long after the credits roll. WETA is able to walk tall in both worlds – and VIP Fan Auctions has proof. The site is offering a pair of WETA-created disembodied arms featured on-screen in CHAPPiE to the special-effects fanatic who casts the winning bid. Meticulously designed to freak out anyone who unknowingly comes across them, the arms are created from a ballistics gel material with plastic bones, forearm hair and just enough stage blood to look completely realistic. Click here to see photos and for more information on these lessons in visual effects awesomeness – and get in on the bidding today.

 

 

WITCH BLADE

fred

The motives of the mysterious prince of Asgard – Frederich Beauchamp (played by Christian Cooke) – were often in doubt during his time in East End. Despite being Ingrid’s son, he remained in contact with the grandfather who banished his mother, eventually leading to a showdown between the young (430-something) warlock and his grandfather. Perhaps their final battle would have turned out differently if Frederich had the 40-in. sword he used on-screen in the second-season Witches of East End episode “The Old Man and the Key.” You don;t have to be caught unarmed the next time you tangle with a powerful warlock, however, because VIP Fan Auctions is offering the enchanting prop weapon to the Witches of East end fan who casts the winning bid.  Click here for photos and more information and get in on the bidding today!
