Battlefield Earth :unsure:

 

Unquestionably, one of the all-time worst movies ever made...that ought to increase it's collectible value in the distant future, the masses being the asses that they are. B)

I vote the plastic brouille for a McGuyver award.

 

Mindshifter, the bubble glasses are simply amazing. I do not recall seeing any like some of those you have collected in my 4 years of scouring Paris brocant's.

 

To you and your collection :cheers:

Well, they are not something you stumble upon everyday, so yes; I guess it's safe to say they are very rare.

 

(On the other hand, Boggy's homemade spike brouilleur is also something that's not just very rare, but probably unique! (Is that a cone of a ballpoint pen you've used?) :thumbup: )

 

R2D2 collectible Mcdonald's Star Wars glass
But that sounds way cool! :) I'd love to have one.

(I have an old thermos bottle with R2D2 on it somewhere... and that pretty much sums up my Star Wars collection.)

Terrible movie. Very good book.

Is there anybody who still makes a glass like this?

Plain would be fine.

I love the thick base.

 

Others probably have much more info about what's available, but the Simon Pearce glassware is a very heavy, handblown glass. They have a bubble glass (which I want really badly now), a double bubble which I have, and a "Pontarlier".

Oh, those are nice! I've seen some similar ones from Tempis Fugit.

But at $72 apiece....weeeeeelllllll.............

 

I'm hoping to find something I can use everyday -- i.e. I'm a cheap b*st*rd.

I want something that, if I drop it, I won't lose any sleep. ;)

They're le même.

 

And at £35 ($55) it's cheaper from LdF.

 

You can always use the nice glass for the first drink, and the cheap glassware afterwards. :)

Thanks. What is the price. The fully-functional helicopter made of two pins and matchbox with McGyver's autograph? :cheers:

Yes, it is; it contains the two, actually-metal outside, plastic inside.

The Simon Pierce stuff is really nice. That said, I bought a glass exactly like the antique you posted a little earlier and I paid less than $70 bucks for it. Nothing beats an old glass, and I've purchased some of mine for less than you would suspect.

God help me when I start getting into vintage rather than repro. gear. Also the same applies when I get my first taste of pre-ban. This is why I don't collect vinyl...
