    Paying that much for a pair of ear tips would seem to be, well, illogical.

    But you only get the left and right ears – what about the final front ear?

    Sorry.

    I think that I will pass on this opportunity. Spock's Ears should be placed in the Smithsonian Institution. That way a multitude can view them.

    And the sad thing is, I like Star Wars more... but Star Trek is great to watch. :rolleyes: Great, I just confirmed my geekery. (Geekiry? Geekary? :confused: )

    Actually, if you close your eyes really hard and look at it, you can see the Virgin Mary serving food at the Last Dinner along with a Crucifixion on the back.

    Auction closed at US$7500 for some latex ears... a mere snip.*



    *was trying to think of some convoluted Van Gogh reference but I'm too tired to make it work :)

    Ultimate proof (as if it was needed) that there are far too many people with more money than sense :eek:

    Actually I believe they used a different set of ears for each episode. This is kind of evidenced in the fact that they state these were from a specific episode.
