Going thru some old files on my computer and came across an old want ad I did for the Advertising Figures I was searching for back in the year 2000. The search was getting easier as Ebay had been getting more popular and that meant more opportunity to score a rare piece. Looking back that was also the time some of the high dollar figures ( Like the large Speedy Alka Seltzer ) that were thought to have been quite rare started turing up more often and the prices crashed. These days I enjoy what figures I have but have not been going crazy adding new ones partly because the ones I want still have big price tags or they just do not turn up anymore. I took the ad I did over 10 years ago and took out the ones I have,had ( ended up selling for some reason) or passed on ( too expensive) and left the ones I have yet seen for sale at any price. There might be a few that I just wanted if they were cheap ( Like the 2 faced Ritalin monster, Mido Robot Clock, came close with a response off a blog post but as usual the deal never came thru) but have not come across yet at a fair price. Maybe this coming year I will take all the other pics I have saved over the years and make a new want list then see where I am in 10 more years.
