E-Mail Auction for Filoni's Fedora


By: Lillian Skye

While Rancho Obi-Wan's eBay"Obi-Than" raised over $15,500, their was only one problem: eBay closed down the auction for the iconic Dave Filoni hat! Apparently, this is the second time that eBay closed down the Ranch's auction for the iconic “Dave Filoni Clone Wars Hat,” which is autographed by Dave Filoni, Sam Witwer, Tom Kane, and Matt Lanter.

The highest bid for the hat was $860, but, due to the large percentage of people who bid at the last minute in an attempt to win an item, Rancho Obi-Wan has decided to have it's own auction for the hat via e-mail.

Here are the new rules, according to the Rancho Obi-Wan website:

If you’re interested in entering the auction—remember, there’s a current top bid of $860 on the table—please send your email address and the subject line “Filoni Hat Auction” to Deadline for getting on the list of bidders is 9 PM Pacific Daylight Time Saturday night.  
On Sunday night, the auction will be open from 6:30 PM to 7 PM Pacific Daylight time. That is when to submit any bids topping $860. At 7 PM we will email ALL active bidders with the current high bid. You will have five minutes to enter a higher bid. This will continue, if necessary, until a five-minute period passes without any new bids. We will then let all bidders know that bidding has ceased and inform the winner. Payment is accepted through PayPal only ( and must be paid within 24 hours. 

If your life is going to be absolutely meaningless without Filoni's hat, enter the email auction before 9 PM Pacific on Saturday. Not only does the money the Obi-Than receives go toward maintenance of the Ranch, but you will have an epic hat to wear to the next Star Wars Celebration.
