Wil, you didn't have one of these already? You are the person I would most expect to have Wesley memorabilia...
2001-12-30 9:19:03 AM  
Got a good deal on it to, eh?
2001-12-30 9:28:51 AM  
It's a conspiracy! He's trying to make all memorabilia of his own so scarce that it becomes a collectors item!

That obviously deserves news coverage, and once he's in the mainstream news again, he gets big movie offers!

Of course, this is just reeking of obviousness right?

That is all.

-Got Spider??

Wow, he actually lists Fark as one of his favourite websites!
2001-12-30 9:34:45 AM  
Xander: It's because he posts here every once in a while. Didn't you know that?
2001-12-30 9:45:04 AM  
Here are some of the seller's other items:

8" Star Trek Plate Captain Picard
8" Star Trek Plate Miles O'Brien
8" Star Trek Plate Security Chief Odo
8" Star Trek Plate Lt. Worf
8" Star Trek Plate cardassian warship
8" Star Trek Plate Ferengi Marauder
8" Star Trek Plate Dr. Crusher
8" Star Trek Plate Commander Riker
8" Star Trek Plate DATA
8" Star Trek Plate Romulan Warbird

Not a bid on any. *Sigh I can only IMAGINE how herculine Lt. Worf looks in his shpectacular collectable plate. [/gay]

I know if somebody put my picture on a plate, I'd pay at least 20 bucks for it. Of course, if it were me in a Star Trek costume, I might pay a lot more, just to keep anyone else from seeing it.
2001-12-30 10:02:45 AM  
This is too hilarious that he bought his own face on a plate. Oh well I guess if I saw my face on a plate on ebay I'd buy it too...
2001-12-30 10:18:14 AM  
I'd like to bid on the picture of the box the plate came in for $200, Alex
2001-12-30 10:36:35 AM  
Yeah, but I'm very drunk...shhh...

Ladies and Gentlemen, Please! The ebay id is "wilwheaton" but that doesn't mean it's Wil.
2001-12-30 10:56:37 AM  
Ladies and Gentlemen, Please! Just because this exact same auction was posted on (Dec 27), with Wil saying "I won an eBay auction tonight!", and a link to the same page we just looked at, doesn't mean it's Wil.

Do a little research, folks...
2001-12-30 11:04:07 AM  
I think some IMPOSTER snuck into his house while they were away and ran up bids on EBay!!!

Cruel, nasty tricksters!

I'd put my money on fb-

or drow

but drow would eat the money if I put it on him.
2001-12-30 11:06:40 AM  
ahh folks, but lets ask that really personal question I'm sure we all want to know...

does wil use PayPal?
2001-12-30 11:14:12 AM  
Did you guys look at Wil's feedback? He sold an autographed picture of himself earlier for over $500!! Looks like being on Star Trek wasn't all that bad...
2001-12-30 11:29:26 AM  
Act fast. . . I have paper plates with a smiley face rendition of Bonobo62. . .only $20. . . first 100 callers will get a picture of a Playstation II !
2001-12-30 11:49:30 AM  
Why, Wil? WHY?!
2001-12-30 11:49:54 AM  
He also sold two autographed pictures from Stand By Me for $293 and $112.

Whatever floats yer boat....though personally I'm hoping to win the Rosie O'Donnell autographed bra and thong.
2001-12-30 11:55:05 AM  
I have to have to hand it to Wil. He has got alot of people at this site all twisted up about him. All he has to do to get some cheap ego smoothing and or cheap publicity is to buy a plate then submit it here. If you think about it there has been no Wil info here for a while. Just something to chew on.
2001-12-30 11:55:43 AM  
Wow...Beppo, that should be illegal
2001-12-30 12:01:42 PM  
I think he bought it so he can turn it around and autograph it and re-sell it to his fans....
2001-12-30 12:11:06 PM  
1. Who is Wil Wheaton?
1b. Who cares?
2001-12-30 12:32:17 PM  
AntiNorm - Thanks for asking the questions. However...I have no clue either.
2001-12-30 12:33:11 PM  
Oh, Beppo... plastic baby Jeebus is smiling because no one has bid on that.

And, AntiNorm - he's someone who posts on Fark who isn't so insecure that he has to try to badmouth other people in order to feel better about himself. Unlike you, apparently.
2001-12-30 12:38:24 PM  
BigPhilly - But why is this big news? Not bashing mind you just real curious.
2001-12-30 12:44:56 PM  
"It's not news, it's"

Ya want big news, head to a news site. :)

Wil is a farker, he's pretty cool, and he's really funny when he handles all the people who can't distinguish between Wil and Wesley.

Check out his website if you're really curious. His style may not be your cup of tea, but I always get a little annoyed when people complain about the Wil posts. I have two answers for AntiNorm's questions:

1. He's a pretty cool guy.
1b. Everyone but you. Get over it. If you don't like him, skip the threads that are about him.
2001-12-30 12:47:47 PM  
It says that the retail value on the Rosie O'Donnell leather bra and thong is $1,100 dollars. Probably due to the large amount of material involved.

Or possibly the cost to dry clean the sweat from it.
2001-12-30 12:54:48 PM  
Ok Wil, you are just being plain silly now.

Although I must admit that painting has a nice soft lense effect that makes you look super dreamy.
2001-12-30 1:00:13 PM  
Sburbncwby - Thanks for the visual.
2001-12-30 1:09:15 PM  
you guys are farking queer about all this wil wheaton shizz...nobody on this bizznotch obsesses over any ho's but y'all get farking woodies over a lame ass ebay page that has his name.

wiggidy wiggidy wiggidy wack...

2001-12-30 1:11:07 PM  
I bet Rosie looks like an orca when she wears that kind of stuff.
2001-12-30 1:13:40 PM  
Sweat AND juices!
2001-12-30 1:15:31 PM  
This seven day auction only had 2 hours 5 minutes and 20 seconds left on it before Wil entered the one(and only)bid for "Buy it Now". Wil should have just bid the opening $5.00 and saved himself $16.00 bucks. I doubt if there would have been a last minute run on it from the devoted Trekkie Kitchenware collectors. I suppose for a celebrity it must be a real ego-bruiser to be on ebay for a week get no bids and then get "relisted".
What's next? "I'll take Wil Wheaton to block"
2001-12-30 1:16:46 PM  
I have not seen one negative comment.Just asking questions.
If you can't handle it then you can skip the threads.
2001-12-30 1:35:55 PM  
Wil seems like a cool guy. I like how he pissed off that chick on weakest link. You'd think she could take a joke. He handled Alchoholic Annie pretty well too.
2001-12-30 1:44:43 PM  
"nobody on this bizznotch obsesses over any ho's but y'all get farking woodies over a lame ass ebay page that has his name"

English, please?

BTW, if all you Wil haters keep posting, he will always be fark-worthy, so I'm assuming you guys really love this in secret.
2001-12-30 1:45:36 PM  
He says on his site he just got his wife a card for christmas, and now he spends $30 on a plate?
2001-12-30 2:02:00 PM  
so what is Wil's fark name?
2001-12-30 2:07:11 PM  
just because you can't handle my superior slang style doesn't mean i should have to translate for you...

use babblefish jive translator or some other lame ass wil wheaton loving bullshizzzity...


2001-12-30 2:08:03 PM  
Wil is a turd.

A woman at the checkout of a grocery store is placing her items on the counter: a half gallon of milk, a half dozen eggs, single-serving TV dinner, and a small bag of chips. The man next in line looks at her, looks at her items, smiles, and says "Ah.. you must be single..." to which the stunned girl replied "That is amazing, how did you know that??"
The man says "Because you're really farking ugly."
2001-12-30 2:35:22 PM  
I found out about Fark by visiting Wil's site.

How sad am I?

I didn't go looking for him or anything. That would be sick. I just followed links from a Slashdot interview.
2001-12-30 2:42:04 PM  
Yay. Domo celebrates by ice-skating honor towards Wheaton respectfully

2001-12-30 2:43:21 PM  
The funny thing is that when they were bringing out the plates, this was the only one I couldn't get my hands on. They either weren't making enough of them or some other factor was involved.

So when are they going to release the "Toy Soldiers" collector's plates? Come on. I am dying to have one of those scene plates where they're in the basement drinking Scope.
2001-12-30 2:45:41 PM  
Wil is the real deal
2001-12-30 2:56:30 PM  
Do we get to see Photoshops of this plate? Maybe superimpose WTC Guy's face over Wil's?
2001-12-30 2:58:42 PM  
Wil Weaton is a superhero. His special super power is to make more money than me.
2001-12-30 3:54:23 PM  
does wil really give out his address to have that plate shipped to him?

hmmmm one wonders what kind of wierdo's might be out there..
