The Recession Hits BSG Fans Hard

This weekend was the infamous Battlestar Galactica auction. And while many items were sold for thousands of credits, the main draws — the life size Cylon Raider, Colonial Viper and Colonial Raptor — didn't meet the required $30K reserve to sell. These are desperate times if rich nerds can't afford a 30-foot alien warship/creature. I know, I couldn't even scrounge up enough bills to buy Doc Cottle's smokes (which sold for a mere $600). Also many of the cast members showed up, Colonel Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan) auctioned off his liquor bottles in person, and the volunteers were dressed as BSG crew members. [Auction Network]

I suspect that plenty of fans were bidding on the female clothing items though.
