Here's what's up for Auction:
Dinner with the Developers - An annual Cambridge tradition! Join your favourite Frontier developers for an evening meal on Friday, 1 February 2018, and we're hoping to see EIGHT lucky bidders there to join us. The food and drinks will be on us, but you'll have to make your own way to Central Cambridge; all travel and other expenses is to be paid for by the winning bidders.
Custom King Coaster Hoodie - Our graphic designers have some amazing tricks up their sleeves, but not all of their work is sold on our stores. King Coaster, who was recently voted Most Popular Entertainer, posed specifically for this hoodie! You'd be the only person in the world wearing it!
Custom Cushion Set - Love our Planet Coaster key art? What better way to display it than on some cozy pillows for your room? We've got this custom set of three, featuring the Adventure Mummy, the Vintage Entrance, and the World's Fair Architecture. Please note that you're bidding on the full set.
Planet Coaster Vinyl - This soundtrack is legendary, and what better way to listen to it than on vinyl? We've got a signed copy in the office with your name on it! And if you don't own a record player, you can display its beautiful cover art instead!
Planet Coaster Launch Event Artwork - A true throwback to 2016! We hosted the Planet Coaster launch event in London and had 40 pieces of custom artwork on the walls; we've found two more lying around and they've been signed by the Frontier team. A bit of nostalgia for you, so this set can be yours if you want it. Please note that you're bidding on two A3-sized artworks.
Signed by Jeff Goldblum - Another throwback to our Jeff interview, here's a Goldblum-approved cue card and an Ian Malcolm Funko Pop!
Interview with Jeff Goldblum Set Prop - Remember this amazing chat we had with the wonderful Jeff Goldblum? Well, we snuck out some set props and we have one of them signed by all of Frontier. This piece was blessed by Lord Goldblum himself and has travelled all the way from LA to London to illuminate the backdrops with our Jurassic World Evolution logo.
