One of the skills I have learned as an adult is wise pecuniary investment. It wasn’t always like this — in my youth, I frivolously blew my spending money on multiple-editions of comic book premiere issues, as well as a hermetically-sealed vault and a surplus of mylar vacuum. Needless to say, my 43 copies of Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man #1 have not appreciated noticeably in value, and while this will keep me in toilet paper for some time to come, I have not returned on the investment.
But this seven-foot tall-Cylon sculpture? Now that’s an investment I can trust.
Created by maverick robot maker Fred Barton, each Cylon is one of a
limited-edition run, hand-made using the finest materials and featuring
both “the haunting visor lights of the robotic soldier synchronized to
the menacing, eerie hum of the Cylon Centurion.”
Oh, sure, it costs $8,000, but I’m betting it’ll at least triple in
value before the inevitable Cylon Sneak Attack on Earth wipes out the
world’s banking system and makes money obsolete. And even then, it’ll be
worth its weight in gold — you’ll have something to wildly
gesticulate at as the Cylons bust down your door: “Don’t shoot! Hey,
look at this. I love you guys.”
