Auction of the Daleks

There’s a lot to be said for collectors. They lavish attention on their chosen items and keep them in immaculate condition. They also know a bargain when they see one and are perfectly willing to “flash the cash” when the deal is right.

At www.paulfrasercollectibles.com a list has been put together of their top five television memorabilia collectibles that have sold for a pretty penny.

In amongst these treasures is the General Lee car from the Dukes of Hazzard, which sold for a whopping £300,000 ($450,000) , the Adam West version of the Batman suit which was went for £23,190 ($35,850), Trigger the horse from The Ray Rogers Show (Which had been stuffed after it died!) got sold at a total of £172,380 ($266,500) and one of the Dharma Initiative vans from Lost cost one happy buyer £30,725 ($47,500.).

The highlight (for us anyway) was a sixty five inch imperial black and gold Dalek, which was estimated to sell at £2,500 – 3,500 ($3,865 – 5,410) but actually finished being sold at a grand total of £20,400 ($31,540)-never underestimate a Dalek!

The Dalek itself actually appeared in Remembrance of the Daleks and so it’s no wonder it sold at such a high price. Although, look at the picture of it and the grating under its top eye section does look quite sloppy, can’t see how that was missed…
