    Next time your running the big guy, a little video clip would be cool to see

    This is like 20 minutes of footage sped up 500x
    Looks pretty cool though!

    im currently selling a decade plus collection of Diamond Select Toys Minimates in order to buy my first pin.
    So I guess its what I used to collect

    I also collect plastic cups from Div 1 Football Stadiums Ive seen college games at.

    Modern board games. I have a "small" collection of about 150 games. But I also play the hell out of them - in the board gaming community I wouldn't really be considered a collector, just someone who plays board games. But to people uninvolved, I'd say 150 of almost anything probably counts as a collection.

    Guns, specifically mid 1970's to early 1980's Japanese produced Weatherby Rifles & Weatherby Memorabilia hence my username....

    Here is a pic of some of my collection.

    I have two more display cases full of factory ammo boxes etc.

    I collect Bonsai Trees -- can be much cheaper or more expensive than pinballs!

    #159 7 months ago

    I groom the ebay and a few other prop sites but have kept my toe almost entirely out. I did grab a small collection of film used currency from a few sci-fi films and shows.

    I'm more interested in creating my own prop replicas, mostly of creatures from films. I've sculpts in works for a Mondoshawan head and a tiny Soulomon Aktipan (Zorg's pet) Both from the fifth element.

    A few others, a copy of Circus Maximus Green Ghoulie, a model of the watcher from Big Trouble in Little China.

    This is one piece I wish I could afford

    I like to ask you. What's worth more, that 7 Up machine or a Coca Cola
    machine from the same era and style?

    I've collected a lot of his early prints. Not so much these days, since most are concert posters, but always a favorite.

    #165 7 months ago

    Ive collected Salvador Dali since early 90's and made a pretty good side job doing it. Pays for many pins. I mostly sell to galleries and museums. Just sold some rare plates to museum in Florida.

    Shackled is my favorite of his that I have framed.
    Also have a complete set of the prints-on-wood Seeker Friends, and still wondering what the hell to DO with all of them!

    #169 5 months ago

    Console games, especially prototype varieties and shumps, vector arcade games, original pressings on vinyl, federal reserve error notes (small size paper notes), modern folk art.
    The vinyl is more like stuff I listen to, not really rarities or valuable stuff.

    Most of the small notes I found in circulation over the years. I’ve got some more arcades but ran out of space since I took up Pinball 15 years ago.

    More than collect. Its paid for all the pinballs.
    I have several that are worth more than a Totan or Indy, MB, BBB etc. Wife I had a brick and mortor gallery for 4 years then moved to internet and ebay.
    That image is Hell/Inferno 21.
    Second edition, Italian.
    Should be BFK Rives paper. I believe I see the water mark lower margin next to the EA.
    EA, eprove artis...french, Italian, several ways to interpret that.
    Its all condition, condition, condition.
    Fade factor out of 10, call yours an 8.
    Signature a 7, long story.
    Value $500 , if on ebay add 10% for fees and paypal. Charge shipping.
    Allow awhile to sell, can take some time. Want to move fast, go 400.

    Thanks Eric!
    An art guy from our Cigar Club looked at it last night and said a top price would be around $800.
    lol...what's the signature story??

    Nice! At one point I bought all the cool games I had as a kid. Creepy Crawlers, Strange Change Machine, Chutes and Ladders, etc...
    I thought a few of us would get together and play. Guess what? Never even opened the box in 10 years!

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    A New Toy arrived today from Germany!
    Ranier Popp and his 11th piece and is MASSIVE!
    Over 2 Kilos!
    Solid, heavy....a piece of Art.
    No clue...this one could take me a few years to open!

    I've never even heard of a puzzle lock before your post. It looks interesting. Do you have a recommendation for one that would provide a few hours of enjoyment and not cost a ton of money? I'm not sure if I'd like it or not, but it definitely looks like something I'd like to try.

    but great collection.

    Watches...have around 14 at the moment...everything from Omega to Seiko.

    Just sold 15 of my silver & modern age comics on eBay and made over $2500. Top one was my Iron Man #1 graded at 7.5

    800 is a little high. And its the signature keeping it from that. That woodblock would actually be worth more without the EA and signature. Juat the image.
    There is no way to authenticate the signature. Even with original COA and documentation doesnt help. All paperwork can also be fake. Id on verso it has a Jean Estrade signature then your good. Your edition will not. Jean didnt sign the back of that second Italian edition.
    EA also means artist proof, meaning it could be a second with small printing flaws. Marketing in the 70's at galleries kind of came up with that scam to make customers feel it was something speacial. When really it's the publishers proof had the higher value.

    #187 5 months ago

    Got ya! Great info. There was an art gallery, I guess in the 70's, that I was a friend of the owner. I told him to keep an eye out for anything Dali for me. He got a few pieces in, but this was the only one I could afford at the time. It's never been in sunlight so the colors are great.
    Maybe I'll put it on Ebay and see what happens.
    Thanks again!

    Sure! Puzzle Locks exists as tricks, 1-5 "steps"
    and harder, "puzzles"

    https://www.puzzlemaster.ca/search/all/?q=puzzle+lock

    Shows a wide variety, although many are a bit over priced, IMO.

    Here is some more:

    A 4 Key quality antique repro padlock, I have extras on, they are under $50 shipped.
    The version pictured I have also in antiqued black.

    So you're selling the one in the picture? How many "steps" is that one?

    I'm just not sure what to buy so any suggestion would be welcome.

    #191 5 months ago

    guitars, vintage bmx/freestyle bikes, woodworking tools,skateboards, watches, golf clubs (putters)....ok, I have issues. LOL. My hobbies/collections are on rotation. I'll enjoy for 4-6 months, move on to something else, and come back to it later.

    4 or 5 steps? I guess.

    This grade mostly sells for $60-$85, so its a good deal, as there re poor quality ones out there.

    It depends on how hard you want a puzzle to be.
    When it comes to locks, specifically, a trick lock means once you learn it, its easily repeated.
    A puzzle lock, can take a long time, or be "playable".

    Puzzlemaster.ca ranks puzzles by hardness, and has designer, designer mass produced, and commercial.

    Heres entry Level, say for an interested, but not wanting a heavy challenge young age...
    https://www.puzzlemaster.ca/browse/inventors/3274-schiebeschloss-sliding-lock?image=7158

    and one a bit harder:

    https://www.puzzlemaster.ca/browse/inventors/constantin/8415-alphalock?image=12094

    This is one of my favorites:
    https://www.puzzlemaster.ca/browse/wood/3dwood/5098-labyschloss

    Lock around...they have killer boxes, and the skill level helps.
    Overall, $50-$100 can buy a lot of fun time!

    Thanks. Most of the stuff on that site is sold out though. I think I'll grab the one you listed as your favorite.

    I'd like to get one of the metal locks like you have in your picture, but they are all sold out.
