So I find an item I like on Ebay and place a bid (also the first bid).

Ten minutes later I get a notice that I've been out bid!!! The auction has five more days!!!

WTF, seriously?

You might ask why I bothered to place a bid with so many days left. Well, I didn't care if someone outbid me, I just didn't think it would happen ten fucking minutes later.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. Never bid on an auction with that much time left.

Naw, it's cool, you are right. I should have waited as long as possible to bid (but the same could be said of the other guy). I saw it at a cheap price and figured no one would be interested and if they were, big whoop, they would out bid me at the last minute.

In fact, after I bid, I kinda questioned weather I wanted it that badly in the first place. I even thought about going back and deleting my bid.

So I guess I should stop my bitching.

But ten minutes later??? I suspect the seller has a second account and was trying to jack the price to create an artificial bid war.

Haven't been on this site in over a week?!?! How the fuck did that happen?

Been busy workin,learning new stuff&thangs,meeting people,shaking hands,and traveling all over....fuckin blows! I'm remembering why I dislike people!

Watched a shop that I had serious history with close down last week! Very bitter sweet. Timing was everything,and it could've went very badly for me if it was two years ago.. Also,was in Akron Ohio,and spent some time In Cleveland. I visited a shop I worked at as a teenager,and it was closed too! Just a shell of a delapitated building with busted windows,and graffiti. Very sad.

I also remembered why I hate snow!! thank god I don't have to be up there again till spring AKA Ohio's weaker winter

I read an article on the MSN home page in which Mariah Carrey blamed everybody for her New Years eve failure.

She also stated "I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving."

No...really?

I'm not even looking at the toy section in stores anymore. Done with it. The casting customization thing is still fun if I ever get time again,but collecting isn't.

You'll feel SOOO good once the selling has completed. Just make sure you keep a handful of your very favorite items tucked away in a tub somewhere as an emergency "No Ragrets" (sic) kit. The urge will creep up on you in a year or three as these things are always circular. Learn from past collecting mistakes.

Well, I always liked your excitement at buying new figure and posting about it, but at least you won't be getting out of customization...if you can ever get back to it!

I've been trying to sell stuff linked to another hobby of mine, but I can't seem to get rid of any of it. I'm not trying to make bank on it, but I don't want to sell it for pennies and take a huge loss either.

I hope so. I have problems letting stuff go! I've been getting hassled to sell two of my trucks by two separate people,and have been refusing too.

Just sick of the mess&clutter.

Never! I'll be home next weekend,and am sending you your heads&hands. Also sending giga his heads,and originals. I'm mostly getting rid of my "collection" or hoardings. I need my wife to help me sell,and ship shit out. I'm only home on the weekends,and the PO isn't open when I finally roll outta bed on Saturday,lol.

There's no reason I should own hundreds of SBD,Cobra invasion troopers,cobra troopers,crazy carded shit I got on clearance,...I'm still gonna cast occasionally too. I'm moving into my new house in 3 weeks,so I'll be able to cast more often for myself too! Which might break the passion back into the hobby for me? We will see,..

The "why" of it all comes to me way too often. I definitely need to downsize substantially.

I seem to recall someone here was going to thin their collection and was going to post pictures of what was on the chopping block...whatever happened to that?

Weirdest thing I have for sale...A PREDATOR COSTUME!!! Yes, a whole costume, head to toe, with lots of working do-dads!

You're probably right,because there's no way I'm moving my current television. It's an older 70",so it's still weighty,probably fragile,I threw out its packaging years ago,and I'm pretty sure it would break in the trip. 70" televisions are like a grand nowadays anyways,..


I did the first step today! I agreed to sell one of my trucks!! I REALLY dislike selling vehicles to friends tho!! But he begged me! Even got his wife to join in,..don't want to hear shit about anything! I'm going to scrap a parts truck in a couple weeks too,..and use a couple hundred to get the head rebuilt on another at my machine shop...once the money starts flowing from my hoarding of shit both inside&outside the house I'm hoping a frenzy will occur!

I have no idea what eBay will net me,but I'm sure it's a nice amount. I gotta crush my PayPal credit debt first before I can actually get my hands on it tho! not to too bad tho,..
