15 bizarre and possibly deadly artifacts that were sold on eBay

Scientists comb the universe looking for science fiction gold, such as aliens, time travel devices or cool comics books. (Hey, scientists gotta relax, too.) The irony is that they have to look no further than eBay, which is a veritable Hangar 51 full of strange and exotic sci-fi relics.

It seems eBay is full of zany auctions for alleged sci-fi treasure. We wonder if fictional universes have this same issue. (Death Star for sale: slightly used.)

Are any of these real? You be the judge.
