I'm in a real tight spot right now financially. I've been struggling financially for quite some time now but my problems have been recently dramatically amplified by various issues with my workplace having payroll problems. We're owed three weeks of backpay checks from the month of May and now due to a hacker compromising work's bank account, we weren't paid last week or this week either. We'll be paid again next week but the now five weeks of backpay will be doled out bit by bit instead of immediately. I'm just about totally broke and am in danger of losing everything (including my car and my home and quite honestly my life) and need to take some emergency measures including selling something i never thought i would: my collection of Palisades Muppet figures. I need to sell as much as i can as soon as possible and i'm unable to use Ebay. I don't have time tonight to list the specific items since i get up super early on Saturdays for my shift (despite working the later shift during the week!) So i'll have to wait til tomorrow or Sunday to itemize what i have available but to give a general overview: I have all the playsets with the exception of backstage (including Koozebane Kermit if you count that as a "playset") I don't have any of the repaints or special exclusives as i was never really interested in them. I do have all the basic figures from wave #1 up to when they stopped selling them in Suncoast. All are out of the original packaging since again i bought them to display on my shelves and never planned on selling. I don't have any of the "Mega" sized figures but i do have both sets of MCC pvcs and the Mahna Mahna/Thog/Sam set. I also have a healthy number of the Jack in the Box restaurant figures. Since i never planned to sell, i've not kept up with pricing and such so i'm not listing a set price - this is basically, "If you're interested make a reasonable, realistic offer". I do reserve the right to refuse ones i feel are too low. If more than one person wants the same thing(s), i will of course favor the higher offer. If you're serious about wanting something and intend to purchase, i can do some research on pricing and come back with an asking price upon request. I'll keep this thread updated with what's sold vs. what's available. I really need help as soon as possible, so if you know others searching for Muppet figures who don't frequent this board much, please spread the word. I'm very desperate right now. When i can, i'll also have a seperate thread for other Henson stuff i'm selling besides the figures. I'm not a big collector though when it comes to products - my big thing is my video collection so the action figures are a bit of an exception when it comes to Muppet products i've actively collected. I have to go through my boxes/closet/drawers, but some other examples of stuff available include a Muppet Babies multi-layer cel, the autographed lithograph from MuppetFest, The Great Muppet Caper script, a few assorted Muppet Babies scripts (have to dig them out to see if they're autographed by Jeffrey Scott or not), Muppet Show scripts for the Valerie Harper and James Coburn episodes, a huge plush Cookie Monster, a Muppet Hits Take 2 cd with the cover autographed by Jerry Juhl, an autographed photo of Farscape's Virginia Hay (Zhaan), various Farscape magazines and collectables including the fan club kit, various Farscape scripts, Street Gang hardcover, Louise Gikow's 40th anniversary Sesame book, Jim Henson's The Works, a very dog-eared worn copy of the Of Muppets and Men book, the original Muppet Monopoly (slight water damage to the bottom of the box from when my apartment was flooded), various issues of Muppet Magazine, all Muppet Show season box sets plus Dinosaurs seasons 3/4 box set, Farscape season 1 box set and season 4 box set (the recent release), all 20 issues of MuppetZine (though the first 11 are "photocopy reprints"), a one-of-a-kind drawing of the Muppet Show cast on posterboard from Chris Smigliano (prize for winning a MuppetZine contest), and about a dozen Official Transcripts of The Muppet Show (these are a hybrid between a script and transcript - same size and layout as the original scripts with all the original description of action plus credits/running time breakdowns/production info but with the actual dialogue from the finished taped edit replacing the lines from the original shooting script) Finally, the "cream of the crop" of my collection is a sheet of Muppet stationary (unofficial fan art border by Chris Smigliano) chockful of autographs from a whole slew of Muppeteers and crew members from the set of Muppets From Space (including Brian Henson and Frank Oz). This was given to me as a special gift so due to both the inherent value and the sentimental value, i will only sell it for a high price. (Yes, i'm that desperate to get rid of the #1 thing i never thought i'd sell if the asking price is right!) Just like the action figures, if you want any of the above, make a reasonable realistic offer. More details about an item provided upon serious inquiry. If anyone wants anything, it's best to email me direct at email@example.com and include either the words Muppet or Henson in your subject heading so i don't accidentally delete it as spam. You can also PM me through the forum, but direct email is best (or you can also do both to be safe) PLEASE HELP! This is yours for the taking and even though i'm not fond of parting with any of this, i'd rather still have a place to live since none of this stuff would matter anyway if i'm out on the street! P.S. Some non-Henson related stuff i have for sale includes a large collection of Simpsons Comic Books, Alpha Flight comics (from volumes 1, 2, and 3) though many of these were water damaged from the SECOND(!) time my apartment was flooded, a large collection of old issues of The Advocate, Out, Genre, and Echo Magazines, not-as-old but still not all that recent issues of The Nation, The Progressive, Mother Jones, and The American Prospect, most issues of Wrapped In Plastic (a Twin Peaks/David Lynch fanzine which also included quite a bit of X-Files content because of David Duchovny's involvement), lots of Archie comics (comic books and digests), several Doonesbury books, a huge collection of One Life to Live episodes (mostly from 2003-present but also some older stuff), and a large collection of mostly 80s cds and vinyl albums, 7" and 12" singles (including pretty much anything/everything Pet Shop Boys and Eurythmics/Annie Lennox/Dave Stewart related) and oh yes, this includes lots of Sesame/Muppet records too!
