It’s a Wrap set a sales record by a wide margin with a weekly gross of $124,287.25. It was a great week for costumes, and there were some high prices on mediocre star costumes.
The Star Trek: TMP Spock Class D uniform at $6,100.03 was the top costume of the week. There was no uniform insignia and no shoulder strips. This may have been because this jumpsuit was used at the end of the movie under their field jackets. You never see anything but the collar and legs of this uniform. So, for this to go so high I think is a bit much.
The Casual Kirk from the beginning of Star Trek II:TWOK was second highest. This went for $ 5,700 the last time it was on (It was relisted because of a fraudulent buyer). It went even higher this time at $ 6,100.
The Star Trek: TMP Dr. McCoy Class C Jacket Wrap went for a ridiculous $5,166.66 since it was never worn in the movie! Like many other Star Trek: TMP costumes, it was made and never used. And for that price you expect a screen-used costume.
The Admiral Kirk Class B is a great costume. I think it is the best costume Kirk wears in The Motion Picture. It doesn’t have a chest insignia, but it does have a bio-monitor buckle and shoulder insignia. It sold for $ 4,905.
The Star Trek VII: Generations Captain Picard Uniform at $4,050.03 was pretty much in line with other Captain’s costumes which have sold in the $ 3-4,000 range. I won this and now have 4 of the 5 captain;s costumes, so I was pretty happy. This is the costume Picard wore while he battled Soran on Veridian III with Kirk at the end of Generations, so I think it is an important Picard costume.
The Worf costume went for a very healthy $ 4,000. Partly this is due to the presence of a comm badge and rank pips. Still, that is as much as this week’s Picard!
The Star Trek V Kirk Climbing costume sold at Christie’s for $ 3,000, but sold here for $ 3,650. It’s a cool costume that is pretty important in Star Trek V.
The Klingon Costume that Neelix wore in the Star Trek: Voyager Episode “The Killing Game” is another re-list that went for $ 3,650. The strongest Klingon costume so far, it came in a week when we also saw the Gorkon from Star Trek VI sell for $ 3,250, so it was a big week for Klingons!
The Spock Sickbay Costume at $ 2,9820 was a shocker. Yes, it is a key scene in ST: TMP, but still, it isn’t a Starfleet uniform, so I think it is a bit much.
The Riker went for a very strong $2,820. This is the black and gray version from Star Trek Nemesis. I good buy I think as there wasn’t one of these at Christie’s.
At $ 2,816, the Scotty Class D was a bit high for a costume with no insignia or shoulder strips.
The Willard Decker though went for $ 2,750, which wasn’t bad. It just was missing the wrist rank stripes.
The Commando Spock went for $ 2,550 which was a steal! This is an important costume and used through most of Star Trek V. I can’t believe it went so low.
The Uhura distressed Class B from ST: TMP was WAY overpriced at $ 2,469. It looks pretty bad and is incomplete. I am really surprised where this went.
The TMP Off Duty Tunic is like the one Ilia wore, but not hers. It went for $ 2,227, which I think is strong for a non-character costume. The last time one of these was on it went fro $ 3,000.
The Tuvok Maroon Officer costume went for a modest $ 2,215. I think this was a great deal, even though the jacket isn’t Tim Russ’s. These are iconic costumes and the last two have gone in the $ 2,800 range.
Here are some other costume prices realized:
Star Trek: Insurrection Data’s underwater costume $ 1,927
Reasonable Price for a nice costume with good screen time.
Star Trek: First Contact Borg costume $ 1,925
Borg costume prices dropped a bit. last one went for $ 2,200.
Star Trek V Captain Kirk Commando Stunt costume $ 1,923
A great deal on a Kirk! (Even though it is not a Shatner)
Star Trek: TNG Starfleet Admiral costume $ 1,801
Strong price for a costume that has gone under $ 1,000 previously.
Star Trek III Star Trek III Security armor $ 1,591
Almost same price as last time. Great costume!
Star Trek: Generations Geordi LaForge costume $ 1,582
Very reasonable price
Star Trek: TMP white radiological suit $ 1,575
About right for a nice costume
Star Trek: TMP Dr. Chapel Sickbay Uniform $ 1,454
Not correct, but fair price.
Star Trek: TMP Ilia Starfleet uniform $ 1,315
Same type as the McCoy that went for $ 5,166
Star Trek: TMP David Marcus top $ 1,254
Iconic costume. Good price!
Star Trek: Nemesis Starfleet Jumpsuit $ 1,225
People LOVE these operations gold ones!
Star Trek: Insurrection Anij Costume $ 1,030
Good price on main character costume
Star Trek: TMP Chekov Class B Uniform Shirt $ 1,010
The shirt Chekov wore when he got burned.
As far as Props go:
The Type III Mk 2 Phaser rifle went for a reasonable $ 2,600. First one of these we have seen.
The Nemesis style Phaser Rifle went for $ 2,325, which is inline with previous sales.
The Kolaran cannon was a surprise at $ 1,225. I am kind of surprised this went so high, but everyone has different tastes!
The Klingon Bat’leth went for a reasonable $ 910; close to what previous ones have gone for.
I think I got a great deal as I won the Reman Rifle at $ 888. These are pretty nice as I saw one in person at the Burbank Star Trek convention last month. There IAW wanted $ 1,500, so I am pleased.
The fifth Klingon mask we have seen so far went for $ 812. So the prices are coming down on these .
Amazingly, the small black and amber Vulcan Jewelry went for $ 800! Way high for a simple piece that has no recognizable value.
The Borg Skull went for $ 710. Ths was not the one from the end of Star Trek: First contact, as this simply does not match up, but may have been made for that scene as it is similar, just teh wrong materials.
Finally, the Kolaran bust went for $ 510, which I think was a good deal. It is quite beautiful, and already mounted. Still, I suggest contacting Tom Spina and getting this preserved.
THIS WEEK’S AWARDS:
Best Prop of the Week: The Type 3, Mark 2 Phaser Rifle is a beauty, and I just lost out on this. (My buddy has one he is willing to trade, so I didn’t want to go too high). Not as cool as the Mark 3, but still very cool!
Best Buy of the week: The Spock Commando Costume at $ 2,550 is a STEAL! An important Spock at this price is amazing.
Sleeper of the Week: The Regula Scientist “Jedda” costume is a beauty and very recognizable. A steal at $ 687.
