Scott's First Loose Action Figure
Mini-Auction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!                        
                        Final Update!!!!!

9:27 PM EST: i am writing this roughly 90 minutes late, because of a
violation of a consumer electronics chain in my area's pricing policy,
which I was disputing with the general manager at one of their locations,
and as of now is still not resolved. If the lateness of the update has
inconvenienced you, I am truly sorry, and if you'd like to hear the whole
story, and possibly make a complaint to them about how their policy
violation has inconvenienced you in relation to this auction, get in touch
with me. I will give you a contact number at their customer service
department.

OK, 25 minutes to go! Let's see what we've got!

   minimum on all of the figures in the auction is a buck!
          (ok, who's gonna bid on the snork, eh? :D)

    IMPORTANT: Since I now also have name I.D. on all of my Star Wars
figures, my Star Wars Loose Figure Auction is coming very soon after the
end of this auction. If you'd like to be on the mailing list for that,DROP
ME AN EMAIL. This email list will NOT carry over to the next auction, out
of respect for your email accounts. =) I'm not one of those guys that
bombards your emailbox with every auction I've ever done, 40 times a day,
until you don't want to bid at all because you're thinking, "God, what a
***!" =) Thanx...

   I am still accepting conditional bids. (here's that long-winded
explanation again.) With a conditional bid, you enter a bidding price
above which you won't bid, and as new bids come in, your bid is
automatically raised to the minimum raise above the highest bid, until a
bid comes along that's higher than your conditional bid. Simple, easy, and
it saves you the trouble of emailing me 20 times with bid increases! Plus,
if you don't have time to stop your day completely the last day or so to
watch the updates (there will be 2 the last day), you still in most cases
won't have to worry about being outbid at the last minute if you have a
good, solid conditional bid! And believe me, there's a lot of people in
this world who only bid in the last 15 minutes of an auction without a
"once/twice/sold" phase, myself included. >:)

    I had some of these ***s laying around the house, and decided to
share the wealth a little, as I have 5,000,000 action figures (blatant
exaggeration), and these are a few i didn't need.

Highlights include some AD&D, Robotech, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark
figures, and even a Mego Pocket Hero!

As the name of the auction implies, all figures are loose, without
accessories unless indicated that they have them.

This auction will end on March 12, 1997 at 10 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Minimum bids will be $1 unless otherwise marked.

Bidding Increments:
       $.50    up to $5
       $1.00    $6-$20
       $2.00    $21-$50
       $3.00   $51-$100
       $5.00   $101+ (yeah, like bidding will really get that high on any
of        this...)

More rules follow the list of items.
