Hi all - Actual Lost Room props anyone?


Hi folks!


Just wanted to introduce myself... I'm a UK based fan of the show, have been pretty obsessed with it since it first aired 10 odd years ago.

I am also a professional dealer in props from TV and film and was lucky enough to find one of the prop-buyers who worked on the show recently who was kind enough to sell me all of his remaining material related to his work on the Lost Room.

This bundle of items included an original production script of the first episode, a load of photos, blue-prints of all the sets, location photos for every location, an awesome dimensioned blueprint of the motel room set and... the things I am MOST excited to have obtained.... the screen-used set of the Collectors vault location Polaroids from the show (not copies, the actual ones used in the show) along with a back-up copy of the bus ticket (minus duct tape).

I was however gutted to find that he had in fact had a collection of about 7 or 8 of the actual screen-used 'objects' from the show and sold them off 'cheap' on eBay a few weeks earlier.

Whilst I am still trying to find who bought them through him, I was interested to know if anyone else had obtained any of the ACTUAL screen-used objects from the show or had any leads on finding them?

I am putting together a display with all the items I have from the show at present and want to find or get made a realistic replica of the key for the display... I actually have a copy of the original room 10 icon artwork (the rising sun with the number on it) from the show's art department included in the items I have so I can use that to very accurately have a copy made.... I am also seeing if the guy who worked on the show can tell me who made the original key fobs for the show keys so I can theoretically get a copy made by the same people/company using the original artwork... which I think is as close as I'm gonna get to owning the real thing :-)

Anyway, was gonna post images of what I have but can't attach them on these boards and they aren't online anywhere so will have to find another way.

In the mean time.... I'm just glad to have found somewhere where other fans of the show hang out!

Lets see if the images work, have stuck them up on Imgur:

This is a pic of the backup bus ticket - not yet punched or distressed and with no duct tape on it :-)

And yes, the other side has the origin printed on it ;-)


I also have a LOAD of really cool production materials from the show inc: Elle Fanning's agent submitted photo and CV when she applied for the part, Joe's divorce/custody paperwork, blue-prints of all the sets, a complete location folder of all the Albuquerque locations with photos and a map of where they are. I also have a pile of photos of girls changing in a gym :-)

It was amazing to be able to grab all this stuff from the show having been such a fan for ages.... just gutted I missed out on the ACTUAL objects collection.... but I am working on that :-)

Will post more pics later.

That brings up some questions I'm not 100% sure I want answered, such as, if he's a member here, why he wouldn't have sold the screen-used objects he had on here for a fortune when he ended up selling them on eBay?

Maybe folks on here just didn't want to buy real props?


Either way, think I'll bow out, not sure I want to know more.

Hi,
     I bought a ton of stuff/props from him and yes he is a member but he kind of faded away while working on Breaking Bad (he is a prop master for that show and was one for The Lost Room)

We LOVE Jess here, he is a good friend and we miss him, he provided us with so much we can never thank him enough.

Your not stepping on anyone's toes here, we all got props and info from him, and he helped us all to no [sign in to see URL] is royalty here.

Look for his [sign in to see URL] is: ABQPROPGUY
