Rare Hollywood Merchandise Goes on Sale this Weekend

by Coma New Staff

Just in time for the Academy Awards, local memorabilia collector Dee Collins announced this week she is selling select pieces of her vast collection of extremely rare Hollywood merchandise.

“These are pieces that capture some of the most memorable moments in film making history,” Collins said. “The craftsmanship, quality and nostalgia are impeccable.”

Among the items Collins is offering is a throw pillow featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as Hugh Glass from the film “The Revenant,” a limited-edition “Benjamin Button” lampshade, an imported hand-soap dispenser featuring Ralph Fiennes as the burn victim from “The English Patient” and a Talented Mr. Ripley’s Chef’s Choice Diamond Hone Electric Knife Sharpener 310 featuring Matt Damon as Tom Ripley.

According to Collins, it is not uncommon for film studios to make limited-runs of merchandise to help promote their films. Collins has spent years building her collection, which also includes a “Howard’s End” toothbrush set, a comforter featuring the cast of “The Insider” and a beer cozy from the film “Milk” featuring Sean Penn as Harvey Milk.

Collins said she has spent nearly 15 years assembling her collection and hopes to one day open a museum dedicated to motion pictures and film memorabilia. Part of her motivation for selling select pieces now is to raise money to help make that dream come true.

“I want a place for people to go and be able to see things like a child’s sippy cup featuring the movie poster for ‘Cold Mountain,” Collins said. “I want to create that magical experience for people who love movies as much as I do.”

Collins, who is a noted children’s author and who has scripted more than 400 screenplays, said the sale will run through this weekend to coincide with the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday. Prices range from $500 to $2,500 for more rare items.

My Amazing Screenplay

I’m Dee Collins and all I do is sit around and pump out the most amazing screenplays of all time and then try to sell them through traditional classified advertising methods.  Read my ad below and contact me to buy my screenplay!

I have this screenplay called “Batman Fights the Aliens” and it’s about Batman fighting aliens from the popular movie “Aliens”.

This movie has everything you want in a movie.  It has Batman.  It has aliens.  It has action.  It has really cool special effects that will blow your mind like fireworks.

Below is a sample of one scene.  If you like it and would like to buy it, please let me know.

I’m offering it at a discount right now for only $700,000 but you better act fast because this deal won’t last.


Set in a strange alien world in the heart of New York City, aliens have attacked Earth and have killed every single human being in the world.  But they forgot about Batman!  And he’s not happy.  Batman fights the aliens and tries to save the Earth in this action-packed-action movie.


Batman is walking along the Brooklyn Bridge alone (because everyone in the world is dead) and minding his own business.

Suddenly a bunch of aliens show up and start looking at him. Some of the aliens are carrying bats and guns but Batman doesn’t seem nervous or anything.


               You guys better leave me alone if you know what’s good for you.

                                                 ALIEN #1

               We’ve killed every human on earth except for you!


               Why don’t you shut up!

                                                 ALIEN #2

               Why don’t you make us!


                I don’t make trash, I burn it.  Or recycle.  Sometimes I even re-purpose depending on what it is.

The aliens attack Batman!  What’s going to happen?  Is he going to die?  Not today!  Batman starts kicking their butts.  He kicks them and punches them and then pulls out a knife.

The aliens see the knife and run away.


                 They should call those guys “lame-iens”.

Batman smiles and keeps walking on the bridge alone in the post alien apocalypse.




I also want to point out that the catch-phrase “you should call those guys ‘lame-iens’” is a line that will be repeated throughout the movie.  It would look really cool on t-shirts.  Anyhow, contact me!  Let’s make movies!

Buy My Screenplay: Good Will Hunting 2

good will hunting

World-famous deer-killer Matt Damon really “unloads” in this action-thriller installment of the Good Will Hunting franchise.

My Amazing Screenplay

I’m Dee Collins and all I do is pump out the most amazing screenplays of all time and then sell them through traditional classified advertising methods. Read my ad below and then contact me to buy my screenplay!

I WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! And you will too. Set in the remote wilderness of western Nebraska, “Good Will Hunting II: Will Hunts Deer” is an epic tale of survival.


A movie for everyone who was disappointed about how little actual hunting occurred in the first film.


Will is standing in the forest doing math problems on his chalkboard.  Suddenly he looks up and sees a DEER staring at him about 25 yards away. Will freezes in place. His mouth drops open and he begins to tremble.


                    Oh crap.  I hope that’s a friendly deer.

Suddenly, the deer bolts through the woods heading straight toward Will.  Will drops his chalk and takes off running in the opposite direction.


                    Oh no!  What am I going to do?

Will keeps running, dodging trees and jumping over logs.  But the deer is pretty fast and closes the distance.  Will gets to the edge of the forest and stops suddenly.  He looks ahead and sees there is a giant cliff.  Nowhere for him to run!

The deer catches up to him and stops.  The deer SNARLS and begins to GROWL.  Will shakes his head, looks over the cliff and then back to the deer.


                    What am I going to do now?  I think I’ll have to jump off this cliff and hope for the best.



That’s all you get for now!  If you like what you see and want to see this movie on the big screen or just read it on your computer then let’s do business!

Invasion: Fight Til Dawn

Starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Flo from the Progressive Insurance TV commercials

Earth Battle Wars


I’m Dee Collins and all I do is pump out the most amazing screenplays of all time and then sell them through traditional classified advertising methods. Read my ad below and then contact me to buy my screenplay!

THIS IS THE MOVIE HOLLYWOOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE! Finally, an apocalyptic alien invasion movie without all the clichés! This big-budget summer blockbuster will make billions of dollars.


Aliens have invaded earth and they aren’t happy! Can a washed-up private investigator (played by Leonardo Dicaprio), and a down-on-her-luck notary public (played by Flo from the Progressive Insurance TV commercials) save the world before it is too late? Maybe. 

Below is a sample of this gut-wrenching, eye-popping disaster epic:


Terror-filled SCREAMS and CRIES FOR HELP ring out across the city as people run and scramble for safety. The scene is complete pandemonium. In the sky, an ALIEN SPACESHIP hovers above one of the many skyscrapers.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO, a washed-up private investigator, takes cover behind an abandoned car in the middle of a chaotic street. By his side is FLO FROM THE PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE COMMERCIALS ON TELEVISION.

The alien spaceship shoots laser beams at a large building, creating a HUGE EXPLOSION. Concrete, glass and steel rain down on the street below.


Those aliens are blowing up a bunch of stuff!


What do you think they want?


Same thing everybody wants Flo…




Why do you think they want money?


They are probably holding us ransom until we pay them a bunch of money. Like A LOT.


But what good would our money be to them? I mean…like, what would they spend it on?

The alien spaceship fires another laser beam and destroys a second building. Leonardo and Flo cover their heads as debris from the explosion flies all around them.


I don’t know. Yachts, a nice watch, fancy galas. Same thing all the rich people spend their money on.


What are we going to do?

Leonardo Dicaprio reaches for a chunk of concrete.


We’re going to fight back!

Leonardo Dicaprio stands up and hurls the chunk of concrete as hard as he can at the alien spaceship, hitting it squarely. The spaceship wobbles in the air for a moment, seemingly losing all ability to navigate, before crashing into a large building and exploding.


That’s all for now! If you want to buy this screenplay, get in touch with me immediately.  For a limited time, I’m offering this and “Death Cow” as a package for $650,000! You can’t beat that deal! Don’t wait!
