These are some of the more unusual or bigger ticket items sold by Best Brains
1. Authentic Demon Dog (Item #3; 1st available Spring 1990 for $25)
The 30-35 Demon Dogs sold were actually used in The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy (102)
2. Mad Scientist Clock (#7; Spring 1991; $30)
3. Lunch Box (in Gypsy Purple) (#15, Holiday 1992; $18)
The Lunch Box originally came with a small set of instructions for proper care and maintenance.
4. Watch with Logo Face (#30; Holiday 1994; $25)
The close-up of the face below shows that the watch originally came with a clear mylar cover to protect it from scratches.
5. Silhouette Car Shade (#76; Holiday 1996; $7)
Not real expensive, but you sure don't see many of these.
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.
