Epilogue – Week of August 5th

Damn it. At the zero hour, I found our Asshole of the Week.

This would have been the star of AW #140…if it had been listed.
Auctions like this always make me want to bid $0.99 to break the BIN.
Who is the guy on the left?
Unsold, for months, $15.50 vs. unsold, newly listed, $180. Your choice.
This would be a huge hit in our house.
Even if you loved it, why do you need five?
Not a bad lot, but it’s never getting $19.99.
Speaking of never getting it.
It’s not worthy of being Asshole of the Week. I’m in too much shock.
The free shipping doesn’t help this in anyway.
Have you ever seen a 4-pack rip like that?
Part of the Black Foot tribe.
Dr. M.U.S.C.L.E. would love this auction.
Can somebody tell me the story on these?
This will get your kid beat-up, right?
Yikes, this need a $0.99 opening bid.
I know a guy that can get you a better deal. Once he gets organized.
Stumbled across this in the M.U.S.C.L.E. search – if it wasn’t so much, I’d bid. It feels like it should be from Arrested Development.
Ummm…welll…I…nope – I don’t know what to say.
High shipping, but I do love a $0.99 starting bid.
Only $75?
What happened? I thought this sold for $30?
In what world does this auction make sense?
Rare? No. Still pretty good 191 figure lot? Yes!
$70 plus $20 shipping. There better be quite a few Class A figures I missed.
God I love Light Blue figures. I own all of these but seeing them makes me want to bid.
When I see this guy’s auctions I want the coin more than the figure.
I’ve seen just about every behind-the-scenes Star Wars picture. It’s a joy to see a new one.

For the Video of the Week, I’ve got two angles on the same story. Some kid was running through the live wire portion of a Tough Mudder event. I don’t have anything to really say about the event or the kid. I had to laugh because watching this video brought me instantly back to the afternoon I thought I had killed my friend’s dog. Let me say, I felt pure panic at first. When the dog was fine, I couldn’t help but laugh every time I thought about it.

I was young and house sitting. The dog was to be let out on a running line. I kind of felt bad, but there wasn’t a fence. I wanted to play with the dog so, without looking, I tossed his bone out the door and connected him to the line. He took off. Unfortunately, I had thrown the bone too far. The poor dog looked just like this guy.

I hope people laughed. This story, paired with the videos, might not seem funny – but it is. I promise.

On Monday I declared this The Picture of the Week. I thought it would be hard to beat and, quite easily, I was right. For a M.U.S.C.L.E. collector this is a beautiful picture.

I wish I could get a super high resolution version of it. Can you imagine if there were a bunch of Non-Poster figures in those 4-packs? It gives me goosebumps to even think about something like that.

I got to the end of the week and I didn’t have a beautiful lady to add. It seemed criminal to go to weeks in a row without one. But too bad. I’m tired. Sorry guys.

    “Auctions like this always make me want to bid $0.99 to break the BIN.”

    Maybe, but it sold in less than 12 hours for the BIN price. So is the “Market” to blame?

    I’m not sure I know what you mean?

    I thought the auction was pretty damn good. It’s just that whenever I see an auction that has a BIN, and a $0.99 opening bid, my mischievous self instantly wants to break the BIN.

    Oh, I thought the it was a high price for BIN, so my concern was “who would pay that right off the bat.”

    I see yes, breaking BIN for others, very mischievous indeed! I would have jumpped on it possibly myself.

    I liked the figures, and I liked the $0.99 opening bid, but I wouldn’t have paid the BIN either.
