Well, It Has Happened

    The thing is...I couldn't tell you WHO I think this is. Can't look up earlier auctions by item number. Don't recognize the seller. The name Watto suggests a Star Wars fan and I do know a few of those in Columbus, but the last auction that I can view is from CA. Weird.

    Hmm...further investigation is definitely warranted.

    The scan looks quasi-professional, especially the inset of the back.
    He might have gotten that from somewhere else?

    But, on the other hand, he quotes the number of people in attendance (whether this is accurate or not....)
    If the number is approximate, then I would guess that he was there - as I do not remeber any mention of this before.

    *Puts on detective hat.*
    Only the last auction number is clickable, but if you copy the two auction numbers prior to that one and paste them in the search box they'll come up. The location also jumps around from Virginia Beach, VA to Olney, MD.

    Duh... he was the buyer in those auctions. The location of them has nothing to do with where *he* is.

    His last six or so auctions were all skateboard related. Ringin' any bells yet, Ken?

    S'ok, just don't quit your day job.

    Hmmm...that does make it easier to narrow down. I only know a few skaters. And the pics are very good...with a font I now think I recognize. Further investigation to commence...

    Don't get me wrong here...this does not bother me...several people got more than one and even if they did not it's theirs to do with as they please...but the curiosity is killin' me...

    Whelp, he says right in his auction that he is in Columbus. He joined eBay in April of 1999.

    Are you gonna tell us when you figure it out?

    What I would do, is go to the Ebay search page, http://pages.ebay.com/search/items/search_seller.html and enter the email address of any Ohio livin' - Star Wars lovin' - Skateboard ridin' folks you know in the "single seller" box, and ebay will convert it to the User name that they are registered with!

    Let's play over/under on the final price.


    I say over.

    Well the wedding was in Columbus, so it could be any of a lot of people. My leading guess right now would be one of the groomsmen. Makes sense. They each got 2 or more....which would make the other easier to let go of. All of them but one live in Columbus. 2 out of 4 of them I know would understand how valuable some of that skateboard stuff would be.

    So right now that is my leading guess.

    *shakes head*

    I think that would be Maryland-livin'... lol!

    Murder might be easy to commit here... lol!

    Just kidding with ya.

    Hey PMK...you see the dude you called it garbage on RTM? You think he meant the piece itself (Evil Palisades and their exclusives camp) or the auction itself?
  15. FellowWLover

    FellowWLover Well-Known Member

    Well, whoever he is, he is searching for "Animal Chin". Perhaps inquiring minds should start emailing...

    Uncleduke...you are a FRIKKIN' GENIUS.

    Mystery solved. It is one of the groomsmen.

    Hmm, that's a toughy. There's only one way to know for sure: give me one of the extras and then I'll taunt him with it.

    Ken, (Or should i say errr 'William') !:eek:

    You oughta bid for it yourself under an anonymous i.d, then have him post it to Ken Lilly at Palisades at the end. ;-)

    Of course the downside to this would be it costing money but you'd have the satisfaction of having caught him with his proverbial trousers down so to speak ! LOL !

    I just assumed Ohio, I was not aware of Columbus Maryland.
    I remembered Ken mentioning going on a vacation around Thanksgiving, and since it is traditional to hold weddings in the bride's church (which would've been a logistical nightmare, in my situation), I just guessed Ohio.

    Except that the bride lives with Ken in Maryland.

    Seems like someone could have just emailed the seller a question and provided Ken with the email address. Would have been a very simple way to track down the seller.

    Interesting that it was a member of the wedding party who caved to eBay first. Didn't Ken say the caterers and other hired help were grabbing the figure sets? I'd have expected one of them to sell them before someone connected to the happy couple.
