6. MST3K: The Movie and a chunk (#84; Spring 1997; $17)

Although BBI also sold MST3K:TM separately, for a while they sold the video with a small chunk of the styrofoam walls from the old Deep 13 set.  Below is the box and cert for the chunks and a couple examples of what a chunk looks like.

7. Official Tom (as seen in episode 1005) (#113; Holiday 1998; $5000)

An actual Tom and Crow used in episode 1005 Blood Waters of Dr. Z were sold for $5000 each.  Each bot was signed by the puppeteer and came with a tape of the episode and a certificate of authenticity signed by the puppeteer and Jim Mallon.  The Tom was resold on eBay and then traveled the world.

8. Official Crow (as seen in episode 1005) (#114; Holiday 1998; $5000)

If the owner of either Tom or Crow happens to read this I would like to get some pictures of the bots and a nice copy of the certificate to add to this site.   Please contact me if you have any info on where the bots are today.
