The O.C. Merchandise: Reddit User's Awesome O.C. Collection! Plus more!

A Reddit user by the name of Miami-Rice aka Sam recently posted their epic O.C. collection for everyone to see on the official O.C. Reddit page. He/she has some really great gems in there! We reached out further to Sam to see if he/she could tell us a little bit about their collection! Sam was kind enough to email us back with a few additional photos plus a description!

Hi there,
Sam from reddit! Here's a few extra pics of the collection.
Being based in the UK I remember buying the DVD as soon as it was released in here to add to my collection. Most of the other items were collected after the final season finished. It's not a huge collection but has some pretty rare pieces! The sound bite CD is one of my favourites, it's from the first season and contains 43 sound bites from various episodes. On the back it says 'not for sale, resale or auction'. Not sure how it ended up with me!
Another one is the CD which came in a English newspaper, this one has became seriously rare with the majority being binned. It features the 'best ever' OC episode voted by the British audience. The chosen episode was Season 2, episode 4, The New Era. It also has 'The OC: Obsessed Completely, a one hour special.
I'm always on the lookout for the 4 figures from Atomic County but they're expensive to get hold of. I've got a few more items on my radar, so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for sharing Sam, excellent photos and write-up! Please do reach out to us if you end up acquiring anything awesome! Here at Everything The O.C. we know a thing or two about rare O.C. merchandise, we will back up Sam's statement and add that the Atomic County figurines/Maquettes are very rare indeed (see the above photo of them)! They were only for sale at the San Diego Comic-Con back in 2006 (Warner Brothers booth #4029) and only 250 were made of each character (4 in all). Unfortunately the people that own them also know that they are rare, so you won't see those babies going for sale less than a grand for the set!

Other familiar items we see in Sam's collection are: The complete O.C. DVD special box set, all the audio soundtracks, 2 OC Bear Bricks, 2 promotional OC hats, looks to be the entire set of Scholastic OC novels (get them if you like fan-fiction), a rare OC surfboard bottle opener, The O.C. the trivia game and the mini disk pilot episode!

Lovable Props From The O.C.: A Collection of Actual O.C. Scripts and More!

Here at Everything The O.C. we like to bring you rare and hard to find things about The O.C, not just photos we've all seen hundreds of times on O.C. fan Instagram accounts. This time we've ordered you up a special! We bring to you photos of some actual original O.C. scripts, production paperwork and more!

The following scripts and paperwork come from season 2 episode 18 "The Risky Business", script revision pages from season 1 episode 17 "The Truth" and an eight page shooting schedule of episode 25 (unsure of season). These were all apart of an auction a few years ago that sold for only $50 dollars plus shipping! We wish we were the lucky bidders so we could have displayed some better in depth photos!

The page on top features information about each scene - filming location/stage, which actors would be involved, the props needed, possible stunt doubles and more. These pages are created for literally every scene, which gives you a perspective on how long an episode takes to get filmed! It isn't too uncommon for a TV show to spend two weeks on ONE episode!

If your wondering - the color of the paper represent which draft a TV production is on. There is a sequence of colors that represents which version of the script they are on, notice the blue color - that means something was revised from the original white copy (all scripts start white). Here is a the order of how scripts are colored - White Draft (original), Blue Revision, Pink Revision,Yellow Revision Green Revision, Goldenrod Revision, Buff Revision, Salmon Revision, Cherry Revision, Second Blue Revision, Second Pink Revision and so on...

The front cover page for season 2 episode 16!

Lastly here is a filming schedule - notice that the Cohen house is listed as being located on stage 28 and Seth's room is located on stage 27. This is because Seth's room wasn't actually upstairs, his room was a set located on a completely different sound stage. Stage 27 also housed things like the Newport Group offices, Harbor School, Marissa's room, Summer's room and more!
