This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Angry Video Game Nerd, a character created by filmmaker James Rolfe who's considered to be one of the grand daddies of the web's video game comedy community. That's right. The age of 10 is considered elderly by Internet standards.
Rolfe shot 139 episodes of his classic video game comedy series on YouTube and for sites like ScrewAttack and the now-defunct GameTrailers. He also made a feature length film for the character called "Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie". That means that he's got a lot of stuff like props, artwork, old scripts, storyboards and other items that tend to pile up when you're shooting a web series with an eye for production value and homemade special effects.
Rolfe released a video (that has one tiny NSFW moment in it if curse words make you feel funny on the inside) on his YouTube channel Cinemassacre to announce that he's putting several props and pieces from his videos and film up for auction. Some of the more notable items up for bidding includes the "Beer Droid" from the Nerd's video on bad Star Wars games and a painting used as the title card for his Nintendo Power magazine special. Bidding is open on three websites including Sellersville Auction, Invaluable and AuctionZip and will end at 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 6. An eBay auction is also in the works and Rolfe says in the video that he will post a link in the YouTube video's description when it goes live.
All of the proceeds will be donated to Shriners Hospital for Children, a nationwide network of non-profit children's hospitals who provide care to patients regardless of their family's ability to pay.
