(UPDATED 22/04 - now auctioning just 1 of the 3...the other 2 will be auctioned at a later date!)

Hey hey pop-pickers, its Mr Neil here to let you know about a chance to own a piece of ULTRA RARE Robert Rankin/Brightonomicon memorabilia.

Mr R drew and designed a gorgeous B'con poster for us, then done went and got just 12 printed up, the cheeky blighter! We in turn got them signed by members of the cast n crew and now have 3 of the gorgeous things in our grubby hands and ready to be auctioned off to raise money for those lovely types over at The Stroke Association.

First off we are auctioning #7 (we will auction numbers 11 and 12 in the near future):

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=140225723506&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=004

As you will see they are something rather special and well worth a decent amount of anyone's money.

Signed by Robert, David Warner, Andy Serkis, Rupert Degas, Sarah Douglas, Steve Oram, me, Elliott Stein, Laurie Buckley, Ben Onwukwe, Danny Eastman, Tamsyn Challenger, Graham Rogers and Jeremy Paul Carroll.

Spread the word far and wide and please bid bid bid for a cause that is close to my heart. Good luck, and I just know they will go to fantastic homes.

Cheers

Neil Smile

Looks great but couldn't even afford the starting bid at the mo. It bound to net a small fortune. Good luck.

I have removed posters #11 and #12 from the auction as we are getting little interest and I don't want to devalue these marvellous posters.

But the lowest numbered poster (#7) is still available and we have a bid for it at 40, so that's something.

Please continue to spread the word to the Rankinites you know.

Cheers n beers

Remember folks, this is for a very good cause and it's a cracking piece of artwork (it took me ages) printed on top quality paper (it cost me plenty) and if you buy it you support a charity and so will go to Heaven when you die.
Which can't be bad, can it?

Well I had a go, but if I dare bid higher the little lady at home will be wearing my soft parts as ear rings!!!

Gladly would start the bidding on one of the others if they appear.

Good luck with the auction.

Well, many thanks to EVERYONE who bid up the price so spectacularly in the last few hours. We got a stonking 205 for the poster, AND eBay kindly refunded our listing fees as well!

As soon as I know the lucky bidder's details I will get Mr R to personalise the heck out of the poster, and we'll all shout HURRAH at the lucky person.

Mr Neville...I don't know what happened...sorry you missed out. BUT, we have 2 more of the signed posters left. I you would like to donate the said amount to The Stroke Association I am sure we could let you have one of them? And we'll get the Rankinator to doodle all over it for you too!

Right, I am off to tell the SA peeps the good news...you are all fantastic!

N Smile
