MouseSurplus, a Kissimmee-based Disney Collectible clearinghouse, will be featured on the hit A&E series “Shipping Wars” next Tuesday. The winning bidder will attempt to deliver a 25-foot-tall Star Wars AT-AT Walker and an 6-foot X‐Wing Fighter to a customer in Utah.
The segment was filmed on locaton at the MouseSurplus store front off U.S. 192 in Kissimmee, Fla. The episode, “May the Ship Be With You”, is the 10th episode of the series and premieres at 9 p.m. ET on Feb. 7, 2012 on A&E.
The episode description reads:
Roy lands the shipment of his dreams when he gets to haul some large one-of-a-kind props from his favorite sci-fi movie. But when he is cut-off by another trucker on the highway, he’s afraid it may have damaged these priceless movie artifacts.
The Star Wars AT-AT Walker and X-Wing Fighter replicas featured in the episode were custom made for the FAO Schwartz at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The replica pieces were sold to MouseSurplus when the store closed in January 2004. The AT-AT Walker replica measures 25 feet tall, weighs over 2,000 pounds and took over a dozen people and close to 80 man hours to assemble at the MouseSurplus headquarters.
Located just 10 minutes from Walt Disney World, MouseSurplus is a clearinghouse of memorabilia, artfacts, signage and one-of-a‐kind collectbles from the Disney theme parks, resorts and cruise lines.
For those without access to the A&E network, the episode will also available for purchase and download through the A&E website and iTunes.
