Epilogue – Week of June 1st


Probably should have been in Auction Watch. A Light Blue #23 is certainly a favorite – whether it was a Class A or not. I’ll be very curious to see where this ends.

In last week’s Epilogue I said:

Have you seen the headless SHA yet? The question becomes is it Keshi or a M.U.S.C.L.E. figure? If I had to guess, then I’d say M.U.S.C.L.E. Without better pictures I think everyone is going to be guessing…and gambling.

Well, according to Jason we’ll have our answer very soon.

174 figures, but $99.99 is not the best opening price.
$4.99 opening bid and $44 BIN. This strategy always confuses me.
Way too many figures to get in one picture.
Pretty cool mixed lot of stuff.
$199.99 – guess the item. (You won’t get it.)
“Came from estate…” Statements like this always make me wonder, “Out of all their belongings THIS was what you bought to resell?!?!”
$0.99 for 16 Flesh figures. Nice.
I would have gone with a different picture.
– Two similar, nearly identical, lots. Why does this one get a bid and this one doesn’t?

Below is the next AOTW match-up of 2014. Don’t forget to vote in the upper right hand corner. Oh, and the shelf doesn’t come with the 26 figures. Just to be clear.

My M.U.S.C.L.E.-inspired mini-figure collecting is a bit of a problem. I get very excited about a figure. I order the figure. And then chaos hits. The chaos takes many forms – work, kids, work, maybe work, kids, projects around the house, work. As you can see it takes many, many forms.

When that chaos hits I need to start making choices. And my hobbies always come last. What starts to happen is that I get a big pile of boxes and envelopes. Then I literally, and figuratively, breakdown and need some rest. I need to spend a little time with my hobby. It’s so much fun re-discovering all of these awesome figures.

The only bad part. I can’t remember what I paid for and what was a gift – because I don’t even remember what I originally ordered. So, in advance of some upcoming reviews, thank you to everyone that included something extra. Some of it ends up with me and some of it ends up with two very happy little boys.

Picture time. I fall behind, but get so excited when I start to catch-up.
