    Muppets Studios let us know about a very special charity auction they are holding for... The Ultimate Muppet Whatnot Workshop Experience from FAO Schwarz!

    As you know, you can customize your very own Muppet Whatnot here. But between now and December 10, you have a chance to bid on the following:

    Here is the official auction link...


    And here are other FAO experiences being given away including a Spotlight Barbie Experience, Lego Experience and Storybook New York Experience.

    really wish i had a few extra thousand dollars laying around.. but then, i probablly couldn't use it anyway.. though.. maybe.. i didn't see in there anywhere if the "airfare" would cover coming from Alaska... (most prizes that include travel don't..)

    It is getting a bit expensive... I kind of wish this was a contest, rather than an auction. Whoever has the deepest pockets will win...

    Yes, but it's for a very worthy charity, so I would say that it's worth it.

    Aren't you supposed to wait until the final hour on those things and then pounce?

    They have a measure in place to discourage "popcorn" bids.If anybody bids within the final 10 minutes, then the auction extends for another 10 minutes so buyers can see if anybody else is interested and have a chance to counter attack.maybe ebay should look at doing something simular.

    It will be interesting to see how high the price goes. I hope they do something again like this in the future so that more people can have the opportunity.

    Well, then waiting for the last several hours is probably best and acceptible. I just never understood the early heated bidding when there's so much time left.

    Did you see how much the Lego experience is attracting? Last time I looked it was $18,000! Makes the Muppet bids look like small change!

    There is an advantage of getting in early.For example, if the bid was $6000 and you waited and somebody came in at $6500, then your next bid would have to be $7000, a jump of $1000.However,if you got in early and put in a maximum of $6500 and then someone bids to $6500, then your can stay at $6500, saving $500.

    I just looked now, thats amazingly high! Although the FMV for the Lego one is also quite a bit higher and the bidding hasnt reached that high. I think I will just save my money for :shifty:

    WOW! Went for $12,000.
