    I say some of us intentionally spike the price up on this auction, just as a kind of message. Whose with me? You know you wont 'win' so no chance of accidentlaly having to pay.

    Ok, I've got to ask.... After all, Ken, you knew someone would....

    Since you have "extras" of the wedding Kermit/Piggy set, why not have some sort of lottery / contest with however many you would be willing to part with for those of us CC members?

    It couldn't be fashioned in the same sense as the Holiday Kermit because Henson doesn't want you to make profit off of it, but it is just an idea...

    Perhaps like some sort of Muppet Scavenger Hunt!

    Anyway... Just an idea...

    I'll head back to the lab now with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Dr. Phil van Neuter :)

    Remember Ken owns the Wedding Sets, Palisades Toys doesnt. It would be like Ken giving away his own personal toy collection. Not that i'm saying he isnt generous enough to do that (imagines Ken putting a protective arm around his toy collection at this point) but it's not really upto him to supply the prizes for collectors club promotions - especially not ones worth $500'ish each.

    That's one of my favorite episodes!!

    Strange, I've been a vistor of this board for months, but this is what drove me to post. I wish I had a brother like that, I know two auctions I would spend it on...

    That is definately one way to spike up Ken's online cred and make all the collector folks on the forums drool^_^

    ARRG! Here I thought my collection was complete... yes I'm one of those OCD collectors that beaker goofs on. It's at $375, so at this point it would probably be cheaper to just up my medication. ;)

    *sigh* the thing that bugs me the most about this guy selling it is that it is a very personal item from a pretty big event in two people's lives. It's like selling the pictures you took at the wedding just because they weren't that many and hard to get. Very low.

    C'mon, it even says the bridesgrooms' and best mans' names, they don't want to have their memory cheapened like that! Sorry it had to happen, Ken. I'd be p***** off.

    Hey, I got OCD as much as the next collector...but barely noticeable paint touchups dont really constitue paying out a mortgage and an organ donation on ebay for me^_^

    Btw, Ken...I was thinking. Since you have a few of these left, and I know your jonzin' to get in on the cash cow these things bring on ebay, but realize ya promised JHC you cant...go ahead and email me as I got a solution. I'll sell a few of em on ebay with a $500 buy now on one of my many ebay usernames, and split the profits with ya. Sound good? rivetbadtz@hotmail.com

    ...wait a second, that ebay username of the seller...OMG!
    I knew you'd find a way to work around the JHC agreement!
    Man, youre one clever product manager Mr. Lilly!

    ***? Now this one may very well irk me. Hm...well, it ain't me, I can tell you that. First of all I would never be so stupid as to do it from MY HOME TOWN, and second auctions with any kind of reserves cheese me off intensely. O never bid on anything if there is a reserve.

    Why dont you win the Auction ?

    You obviously dont have to pay, Its already your product.

    E-gad! This looks like a job for the world's greatest detective, Sherlock Hemlock...

    What do you expect from a Muppet fan site?

    Well, JHC didn't exactly say that the new Mrs. Lilly couldn't sell them, did they? ;)

    Auction has since been removed. Hmmm....

    Curiouser and curiouser...

    The auction was not removed by eBay, it was ended by the seller. When eBay ends an auction, you get a message 'The Item You Requested Is No Longer Available or in Our Database'

    This just has the 'Bidding Is Closed For This Item'

    This was just ended by the seller. (Symantics)

    Looks like someone was trying to prank Ken and make it look like it was him. They just used the same text and pictures from the previous auction.
