    As fun as it has been to own all four of the packaged protos from the canceled Palisades Sesame Street Series 1 line . . . my other obligations (car repairs, bills, upcoming vacation, yada yada) have become a little pressing.

    So, I'm selling my Guy Smiley carded proto on eBay, and if I get a chance, I'll be listing the Two-Headed Monster later today as well. Take a look - it's item #230005644277.

    I don't post a lot on here, but many of you know me as Tink from the Palisades boards, and now the CMX boards. I'm sure people can vouch for me if necessary. (;

    Good luck!

    Yes, Tink is a very reliable person! Also an extremely nice person to deal with. I know her from the old Palisades board.

    Thanks for that! :) (Who were you over on Palisades?)

    I was UncleDeadly. How are you!? It must be really hard to part with those protos. Looking at them makes me want to cry.

    Yes... Even though I never made a deal with Tink before... My voice only adds support and credit to her name, as others who have done business with her in the past can certainly vouch for her.

    You may not post much here Tink... But you're still welcome all the same.

    Thanks, guys! (COLBY!! How ARE you?!?!)

    I have just listed The Two-Headed Monster as well. I'm going to hold off on Ernie and Oscar, at least for now . . . and yes, Fuzzhead, it is hard to part with them, but not as hard as the constant stress of owing money! (;

    Hey there Primetime! :) It's like a little reunion here, huh?

    Four days left on these auctions . . . it's going to be interesting to see what happens!

    I would buy them all if I had the cash, but I'm broke.

    I'm doing well, Tink. How are Greg and the kids? Is he still creating flash games?
  12. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Yep... 3-4 days left, and I'm kinda glad noone's snapped 'em up yet.
    Still watching, and hoping...

    Not so much these days . . . have you seen his sketchbook? He went from creating Flash games to making Mashups (music) to working on magic again, which is his most recent obsession (other than playing video games!).


    The kids are growing up so fast! Colin will be SIX next month! He's lost three teeth and is sooo proud. Spencer is exactly four and a half today, so we had a little half-birthday celebration for him. :)

    And I hear ya on the lack of cash flow. That's kind of the reason I'm selling them in the first place. ):

    I'm a little surprised that Guy Smiley has had almost twice the views as The Two-Headed Monster. Is he really that much more popular? Personally, I feel The Two-Headed Monster is the most unique, since he's SO wide, and with all that fur detail. But I guess we all have different favorites, for different reasons, huh? :)

    That might be the reason Tink... Then again, to my knowledge, this is the first time a Guy Smiley prototype's been up for auction. Ernie's been there already, the 2HM that Tim won which you alerted everybody over on CMX, and Oscar with the Street facade from Ken.
    So... Just watching and hoping I'd have a shot at these.
  16. Tinkgumby

    Tinkgumby New Member

    One sure way to make sure you HAVE a shot is to put a bid in. Just a suggestion. (;
  17. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Yeah... Guess I'm just kinda watching, letting the clock tick down before putting that bid in. I know, the longer I let it go there might not be an auction to bid on...

    Ah well, the schemes of bidding on eBay... Have a good day Tink.
    And just think, you're about halfway to becoming a full Member here.

    Glad everyone is doing well. Those kids are too cute. The sketchbook is incredible! I can't believe the talent he has. The voices on the Muppet Christmas special are very well done. And the kid's pirate adventure is great.

    Everybody should check out the Muppet games!

    Thanks, Colby! I probably should start a thread to share those Muppet games with everyone - I'm guessing most people don't check the B/S/T threads.

    And on topic with the thread, I did just reduce the Buy It Now price, if that makes any difference to anyone. :)
