    They did it as an auction to benefit charity (everything FanFest earns goes to organizations that support the troops and their families). The opening bid was $300. Actually everything in all the auctions went for ridiculous amounts of money.

    There was a ton and a half of stuff. Packages with autographed scripts, movies that the cast had been in, t-shirts, etc. There was a bunch of Abby clothes and accessories that Pauley donated. UCLA jerseys with Mark's number on them if I remember correctly, a set visit to NCIS during a live taping, posters, a director's chair with your name on it. NCIS polo shirts, gear bags, and each cast member had a specific package that was all about them. Can't remember all of it off the top of my head, but it was pretty extensive. Some packages were a raffle and anyone could participate by buying tickets online, some were silent auction, and some were live auction. It was fun even if I couldn't afford any of it.

    Didn't Emma get "Bert's brother"? She hasn't been on here much recently, except interfering with the lights in NCISUFN and causing Kas's AHEM attacks.

    I'd love an NCIS jacket or cap.

    And I want Tony's sunnies and his gun holster (the shoulder strap one), guns included.

    Michael Weatherly himself would also be nice.

    Anything to do with Mark Harmon would be brilliant - I might have even spent stupid amounts of money if I had been there!

    I got a cap from a German site and it looks just like one of the caps they have worn on the show, the strap at the back is a bit diff now but I love the cap I have I also have a T-shirt with NCIS on the back in biggish writing and on the front in small writing. I want to get a jacket, they have one on ebay I think it was that is pretty close to what they wear on the show.

    There is a site for a mother and baby stuffed Hippo toys, the mother one looks a little like Bert. They only ship to the US otherwise I'd probably have one lol.

    Same hippo mama and baby are on Ebay and you might have better luck with international shipping there. If I find the link again, I'll post it here.

    Here we go...the first link is for the exact same mama and baby hippo that you guys found, the second link is for one hippo that looks alot like it, and the third is for a hippo that looks a little different but would work in a pinch.
