International Auction House announces special Sci-Fi collectibles
auction – Star Wars, Star Trek, Godzilla, Ultraman, X-Men, and more . .

Two non-militaria related special auctions for Manion’s International
Auction House, Inc. in a month? Manion’s brand new special Sci-Fi
auction is online now, coming hot on the heels of their collectible toy
auction — their first non-military related auction in many years.

“Everyone knows Manion’s International Auction House is synonymous with
military collectibles,” said company VP John Conway. “We’ve come across
some other interesting collections lately, and thought we’d feature
them on our online auction website.”

The results were encouraging.

“Our collectible toy auction went very well,” said Conway, “and a Sci-Fi collector contacted us about consigning.”

Manion’s accepted the consignment, and contacted a couple collectors of similar items.

“Just like that, we had a new special auction,” Conway said. “Few
companies enjoy our versatility, and the ability to put a special
auction together so quickly.”

While several special auctions are featured on a regular basis, online
auctions close 365 days a year on their website:

“The Sci-Fi special auction features hundreds and hundreds of Star Wars
action figures and vehicles,” said Conway. “Other Sci-Fi areas of
interest include Godzilla, Ultraman, Star Trek, X-Men, and many more.”

Manion’s special Sci-Fi auction closes April 26, 2009 at 8:30 p.m. CST on the online auctions website

Continue to count on Manion’s for militaria, but begin to look towards
the longstanding company for other areas of collecting. On the horizon,
Manion’s is planning several special auctions in diverse areas of
collecting: Public Enemy Number One – Maffia Memorabilia, Military
Medical, and Sporting Collectibles.
