I cannot understand why some browsers are not displaying the simple text properly. I'll see what I can do to get that fix. So, nothing we can do, it's all good, moving forward. I will edit this listing, however, as I'm now concerned about some other person doing the same. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I have no other reasonable choice.
Local pickups will now ONLY be allowed at my choice of Las Vegas police station, for the safety of everyone involved. FIGHT CLUB WITH THE EXTENSION, STORE, NOT COM, ROUTES HERE.

Three, there might be MANY of those out there with COAs in private hands, where there is only one in the world of this prop. So, I just don't know what to tell you, lol.
Lastly, before we get to the item. Long description, yes, but it all goes to providence and authenticity which as well you know, is everything. Under my other user name, wolfewheels, an this once, since e-bay opened, I've done about. One third of one million dollars.Of deals on the sell side. I never have asked for feedback, ever. They leave great feedback, all I get, great, if they don't, fine, lol. A few of us knew the film would be a cult classic, even if it weren't a box office smash out of the gate. I have included screen caps from where THIS soap is shown in the film, 100% chance. How do I know that having worked as a professional actor for 17 years? The "hero" prop as this one is (seen below) is BY DEFINITION used on camera, and the best visible footage big bars of soap shows two, both "heros, " THIS exact item, the only one in the world owned by a private party, and the one hero prop kept by 20th Century Fox and is now in their archive.
As you can see from the notes in the unredacted correspondence from 20th Century Fox below, there are only two in the world that exist. Not is this Fight Club the certified authenticated real deal, it's the used in the film real' deal, and the ONLY one in the world that will ever be for sale. Otherwise, I'd never sell in a million years.
Dimensions are 19" x 14" by approximately 1.25. Lost the edit of the weight, so I will reweigh. IIRC it came in just shy of 10 pounds.
It's made out of very study resin, to survive blazing sound stage lights. Packing within the United States will be tank like, FULLY insured, and paid for by me. Though I have professional level packing skills, I might use a professional on this one to be EXTRA safe. So if you'd like that, perhaps there's something creative that I'm just not seeing this second, and you are, so let's talk.But I do have a few friends who used to hang out in the type of high roller Hollywood circles who are always interested in this type of thing, so I did give them each a call.

Yahoo [dotcom] In-Reply-To: MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii. I saw the film again and saw the big soap. It's in a couple of scenes. You first see it with Ed Norton in a basement scene when he comes downstairs when they're first setting up down there.Then later you see two of the big bars downstairs while they're working. One of those bars is in our permanent archive collection. The other is the one you got. There were other bars, but they were cut into pieces so we only had the two surviving intact bars.

General factors most here know, which go to all props, factors. 2 Marked and documented as "hero" prop preferred as to screen ID'd, which can be difficult, as having been in my old biz for 17 years, props not marked hero by the prop-master but NOT used on camera, -can- sometimes be visually identical, and screen matching really doesn't prove that much.
Here, marked "hero" by Fincher's common prop-master, well known "Bucky" Moore, who's worked a bunch of Finch gigs, including 7even and others, and if you've ever dealt with him, cool guy. Marking top right of the wrap he or an assistant put on the item. E-mails are all in the main listing.
3 How many of the props exist, period, and how many of those are heros? Here, there are two apparent in the film. I do not know how many others there were, ready to go, if needed. What I do know is that only two existed after the shoot. 20th Century Fox kept one for the archives, I have the only one privately owned.
Documented in my e-mails on the main listing with the 20th Century Fox rep, who was kind enough to actually look into things for me. The small real resin "small" soaps from the film, hero and not, with Fox COA, aren't common, I know of at least several, and through this listing elsewhere, was contacted by one of the owners of one of them. The "Giant" soaps, per the studio, there is only one, this one, privately owned.
4 This one is obvious, but perceived popularity of the film, whether that be "straight" interest, or cult film status. Everybody is going to make their own call on that, and they'll use things like top 100 films of all times and other lists, or they won't.
5 Another obvious one, interest in on camera props or "things" connected with that film. And yes, I and others recognize the irony of owning "things" from one of the most famous "anti-ownership, things" films ever made. 6 How central was the prop to the identity / promotion of the film?
ALL this stuff with any film is debatable, but 20th Century Fox's promotion of the film felt it was the soap. Reasonable arguments can be made, it was items of Brad's clothes and other stuff.Can be established various ways. A Proof the item was received from somebody close to production, bonus points for previous ownership by well known celebs. This one does not have that.
B Less owners is better, direct link to studio preferred. Well, I bought it around 20 years ago around release from the studio, nobody has touched it but me.
Well, this one is in the EXACT condition I got it from 20th Century Fox, stored in a file cabinet in a non smoke house. I had not even removed that bubble wrap for 20 years until now. That lame zip lock with the embossed COA?
I have never opened it once. Yes, all Fox COAS for those items look the same, except for specifics. 10 Possibility of forgery/fraud, likelihood the SPECIFIC prop would be targeted by forgeries. A Fight Club stuff, due to market, is RAMPANT with forgeries.
Within six months, the fight club PROMOTIONAL soaps, the ones with the raised lettering, were ALREADY forged right and left. Those promotional soaps came in two variants.Without dish and with a chromed two piece soap dish. Unknown number of those WITHOUT the soap dish, 500 were made including the dish. How do I know that? I bought about a third of the ones that 20th Century Fox auctioned. I have about four without dish, one wish. Never looked if that chromed dish, but I suspect, though not -easy- to find, it was a common two piece retro looking kinda intentionally cheap, two piece soap dish.
I don't know if they're SOAP, but they are made of something that bleeds some oily stuff over time. Only one of mine survived in even SALEABLE condition, and it's not -great condition. Some of the fight club FILM, not promotion props are easy to forge, some, like this one, not so much. Some would have HIGH incentive to produce forgeries, this one, not so much. I was a well known civil fraud attorney for 35,000 hours after UC Berkeley law, so merchandise forgery SPECIFICS, good knowledge, not as high as some experts who spend all day on MERCHANDISE forgeries/knockoffs.
Right out of the gate, after the film, the PAPER fight club stuff, forgeries were already -rampant. The promotional FC soaps with the raised fight club?
There was a big enough market, that was ALREADY rampant. I have no idea if the Forgeries of promotional soaps last over time.
The real ones, DO NOT. Like mine, they badly fall apart. The SMALL film soaps, are not soap at all. They're resin, to withstand film lighting and impact.
COULD they be forged including COA? I only just met one owner, we know the same people, including propmaster Bucky, his is DEFINITELY real. I guess it -could- be done, heck, anything could be.But they have zero access to EITHER of the two reals in the world, there sure would be MUCH easier props for them to target, than this. And NOBODY even knows what these sell for. So it would take a skilled and STUPID forger, to target this. Also, the ONLY real world owner, is a 35,000 former California civil fraud attorney, who watches market on this, and KNOWS I will gun for them, period. Would THIS one be smart to target?
Without going through my legal background, no, it would not be. 11 Length of time appearing on camera. Very low here, two scenes, look yourself, I wold say one minute of screen time.
12 Foreground or background of use in scenes? A really big deal, many prop owners do not understand how important that is to evaluation. They think something on BACKGROUND on camera doesn't matter to value, that something on a desk behind the action is the same as the foreground, or point of the scene. No, it really effects valuation. Here, well, the big soaps are kind of the whole point of the two short scenes.
13 Association between lead characters, and props. Neither Edward nor Brad touched either of these, in the film.
14 Signatures of lead actors. I've known Brad though limited dealings since maybe 1986, when he dated my cousin in High School. I know Finch, a -bit- better, from six weeks of working for him, with him. I mentioned to NEITHER that I HAD this.
Would both of them think that's stupid? Why yes, yes, they both would. SPECIFIC TO FIGHT CLUB PROPS. A NOT on camera, verified, hero prop MARKED hero.
B SMALL (about hand sized). C UKNOWN number held privately. I know of at least six of them, unlike the one I own here. Verify yourself, i you wish.
