LEGO Supercar Charity Auction

Posted by ,

Paul Boratko of Crowkillers is a very active AFOL specializing in "Supercars." He is also however active in the charity community, providing custom supercar MOCs for auctions.

Paul is now auctioning off one of his "Daywalker" builds with all proceeds going to a small child undergoing treatment for a brain tumor.

For those interested in the auction, you can find it here.

For those in the Pennsylvania area, there will be a LEGO event called LEGO-Ram-a Monday October 7th from 5:30 to 8:30 at the Richland Elementary Gymnasium in Johnstown, Pennsylvania also in support of the child.

After the break is a video of the "Daywalker" if you would like a better look.

I placed a bid and am currently high bidder! Great build and excellent cause, I could not pass. I placed a nice bid, but hopefully I will get outbid and a ton of money will be raised!

Wish I had the time and skill to pull that off. I wonder what its bricklink cost is.

according to Bricklink pricing via BrickStore, the Red version costs $280 and the Black version costs $386. That's WITHOUT any shipping and without chrome wheels. Somebody sells Red and Black kits on ebay for about $650 (with chrome wheels).

I went all out wit this white model... I even have well over $100 worth of black and white friction axle pins in the entire body... I would say this exact model would probably cost the average builder around $550 to $600 for everything including shipping for the parts from various dealers from all over the globe...

This model was originally supposed to go to the AACA Antique car museum in Hershey, Pa. for their holiday display, but then when I was contacted about the benefit a few weeks ago, I decided to auction it off instead... I am going to try and do another white one for the museum display.. I think I have to have it there by November 15th... Only problem is that I am currently working on a new piece (50's style) just for the museum, so time is precious right now...

I wish I had read this before this morning. The event happened in my hometown, and I hadn't heard anything about it until now. There's usually pretty good news coverage, promotion, for these events in the area, but my mother (she's keeps me up-to-date with local news as I don't actually watch the news) didn't mention this to me. Usually too, we do something at our school (I teach at Richland's closest school neighbor) to raise money for causes like this. Again nothing. (I was in Florida last week; maybe I just missed all the buzz.)

The event went well.. They sold a good amount of tickets for it(Somewhere over 400)

Kids seemed to have a lot of fun... Brayden despite not feeling 100% made the trip in from Pittsburgh with his family...

This is the 3rd Charity auction piece that I have done now and our own WJAC for some reason refused to help promote any of them, which is odd because they are usually all over anything Lego related locally... I know they were contacted multiple times... They were up at the school for a brief time last night...

The only media advertisement that I had seen for the event was a small article in the paper last week..

WTAJ in Altoona was cool though.. They did a segment with me at 4 P.M. and I had enough time to get back to the event right before it started...
