    Hey, the original thread is back in the Figures section!

    Well how 'bout that? I guess what can be done can be undone! Either that or the disappearance was a glitch - i almost hope that's the case considering the alternative would have been a rather heinous act if it was done purposefully.

    I'll post specifics about the action figures there and here but aside from the general description of the rest of my collection, the rest of it will be detailed here. That way it's convenient for those just interested in the figures and everything in one place here helps those who just like anything and everything.

    The Figures

    (Also posted in action figure thread):

    Okay, here's the actual list of all the action figures i have available (and other "action figure-like" items) A couple items have sold and are not listed below. Some of the items below do have open offers and will sell shortly if no counteroffer made.

    All items and playsets come with all their original accessories. All are out of box and have been on my display shelves as i never planned on selling. Any major defects are noted and should be easily fixed with super glue. All playsets will be sold with the action figure that came with it (and vice versa) unless i have a really good offer for either the figure or the playset without the other - so basically i plan on keeping them together but someone who for some reason wants one without the other could always make an offer i can't refuse.

    I mentioned earlier i'm not a pricing expert, however since my original post, i've received sage council from an expert so if an offer is too low based on the advice he's given, i'll let you know.

    - Kermit (camera accessory is broken in half due to fall of shelf)
    - Miss Piggy
    - Dr. Teeth
    - Dr. Bunsen Honeydew (glasses are broken off - they stay in place for me fine displayed on my shelf but you may wish to fix with glue)

    - Koozebane Kermit
    - Stuntman Gonzo
    - Floyd Pepper
    - Crazy Harry
    - Electric Mayhem Playset with Animal
    - Rowlf
    - Scooter
    - Lew Zealand
    - Zoot
    - Swedish Kitchen Playset with the Swedish Chef
    - Sam Arrow (bottom half broke off due to fall off shelf, snaps back together and stays in place for shelf display but you may wish to glue together)
    - Rizzo
    - Link Hogthrob
    - Julius Strangepork
    - Gonzo
    - Pepe
    - Newsman

  10. dwmckim

    dwmckim Well-Known Member

    Just a general update for those who've ordered something from me. (Some of you i've already contacted via email)

    The mailing of most of the original batch of orders got delayed due to my workplace closing and not only not paying us the money we were expecting but also upping the total amount of backpay owed to almost two months' worth. So between that, contacting various agencies to file complaints and scrambling to get a new job, it's kept me from getting stuff mailed right away. I get my first paycheck from the new job the Monday after next so i should be able to get everything else mailed then.

    I wanted to post here so everyone waiting on orders were on the same page and also to disclose to others that while i generally try to mail stuff as soon as possible, extraordinary circumstances meant a delay in some peoples' orders but it shouldn't affect any new ones since by the time i receive payment, i should be back to a regular pay period (even if not as high as i'd like) so new orders shouldn't have any kind of delay.

    dwmckim Well-Known Member

    Bumping thread due to lack of orders the last few weeks (i've had a couple people making what seemed like serious offers but ultimately didn't follow through) so no changes to what's still available - see the last few posts and everything mentioned is still up for grabs. Plus the personal hits keep coming this month. My new job has hit a slow period after i joined and my pay's not been enough to cover all my bills - PLUS i have a couple EXTRA expenses this month in the form of seasonal bills (i.e. car re-registration - EXPENSIVE and legally necessary!) AND i had to replace a blown tire this last week which set me back another $200 which i DID NOT NEED at this particular time as well as cost me some time at work...which is already hurtfully smaller due to having Labor Day off. Everything's falling apart at once these days and i am really needing help!

    If you also want to email me, my address is pns1@comcast.net. Hope you got my message yesterday. Like I said, if you don't have any of the things I asked about, just let me know what else you have and I'll see what I can do. Thanks again and stay strong.

    looking for some stuff

    Kermit on a log playing banjo with banner saying "50th anniversary" with button that plays Rainbow Connection when pressed. Can be used as either a stand alone shelf display item or has a small hook to hang as Christmas tree ornament

    Is this still available? and if so how much. thanks:eek:
  15. dwmckim

    dwmckim Well-Known Member

    It is still available. Like everything else, it's being sold "silent auction with a reserve" style - name a price (bid) and as long as it's reasonable (not too low) and no one makes a higher bid within 24 hours, it's yours. PM me or email me direct at dw_m@webtv.net with your bid.
  16. zns

    zns Well-Known Member

    Are you putting your stuff on ebay now? Let me know if you got my PM a few days ago. Thanks again. I'm hoping that everything works out for you D.W. God bless.
  17. dwmckim

    dwmckim Well-Known Member

    No, no - nothing's on Ebay (you may recall i can't use ebay - i don't use Paypal plus ebay's not webtv friendly). I just tend to use the phrase "silent auction with a reserve" to describe the style of which these are being sold since i keep getting the pricing question over and over.

    Expect a reply after i'm off work tomorrow - you had a big wishlist so i have to cross reference to see what i actually have.
  18. zns

    zns Well-Known Member

    I apologize about the length of it. They're only suggestions and it doesn't matter that you don't have all of them. You just let me know what works best for you.
  19. zns

    zns Well-Known Member

    Hope you got my money order in the mail. I certainly hope everything is okay with you right now.

    Everything Keeps Getting Worse!

    Well i was laid off from the new job i got a couple weeks ago (not even for a valid reason - pure office politics) and have not had success finding a new one - so on top of all the other things that have been happening to me, i now have no income, almost nothing left to survive on and hundreds of dollars in bills coming up. Point blank: right now things are much worse than when i originally started this thread!

    I'm really begging anyone who can help to please do so. I'm running out of options and i'm getting very scared that i may end up having to give up on everything all together. I even have a couple people still patiently waiting on orders they placed before i lost my job and haven't been able to ship to them (they've been emailed and updated on the situation and understand - i just wanted to mention this out of full disclosure. These were orders placed when i still had a job and wasn't expecting to lose it. Any orders coming in now won't be affected but because of this i am strongly reccomending minimum orders of $20 to be sure i can get these out right away)

    I'll be posting an updated list of stuff available soon - i've been frantically digging through boxes and still have more to uncover. Many of the dvds are no longer available as i sold them to second hand stores today (i hate doing that because you can literally walk in with a giant basket overflowing with stuff and still walking out with a measly amount of cash which is exactly what happened today but it was either that or have no gas money!) New list will be up once i type it up. Please help. I'm not eating and i'm considering some very desperate unsafe/unhealthy alternatives since i'm out of other options. I'd really like to live long enough to see the movie next year.
