"Snake Plissken"

Snake Plissken? I thought he was dead.

I used to draw a lot a long time ago but I haven't done much of anything artistic in years. I have been getting the urge lately to get back into it though. I really like your art style. I'm going to favorite your site and check it out some more later.

Ha!

And he sounds a heck of a lot like Clint Eastwood!

Well, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Plus, now that I think about it, Lee Van Cleef played a part in Escape From New York. What a coinkydink...NOT.

I noticed from your profile page that you like Ghostbusters and Minimates. I still have all my original Kenner Ghostbusters action figures. I used to have a set of them mint on the card that I sold a few years ago to some guy for $400 bucks. It was one of my best sales ever.

I have the KISS Minimates sitting on my computer right now.

I love toys, I just can't afford to buy everything I want. I miss doing that.

I go quality over quantity anymore. Mostly the $150+ Hot Toys figures. I have Iron Man, Tony Stark, The Joker, and Comedian. Chick at work said this is why I still haven't paid off my student loans. I was like yeah, that's it. It's the $250 I spend in a YEAR on toys that's breaking the bank.

Same here! But I just don't have the kind of expendable cash like I used to so I do not buy much anymore. You should see my spare bedroom walls here though, they are loaded with Transformers and Hot Wheels still on the card pegged to the walls all around me, inbetween the posters and pictures. Way back in the early Nineties I used to publish a small bi-monthly newsletter on action figures and toys. I even wrote some articles for some of the toy zines back then.

I've still got boxes of action figures stuffed in my closets, mostly TMNT, Thundercats, Star Trek stuff. A couple of years ago or so I sold off all of my Iron Man, Marvel, Star Wars, and Aliens toys to make some extra cash.

Most of my toys are fashion dolls. I used to make and sell doll clothes online, but since I'm not active in doll communities anymore (due to no internet at home) that's sort of dead.

Fashion like Barbie? I see that you're interested in Monster High dolls too. They're so cool aren't they? Every now and again when I visit my local Target store I will check out the toy section just for fun, and buy the occasional die cast car. LOL.

Monster High basically stole some of my ideas, but I don't have a legal leg to stand on. My concept was zombie fashion dolls. That came apart so you could build your own, and they all had a rockabilly style. And hey look at that, there are Monster High dolls that come apart.

And yes, Mattel people did see my zombie girls. Did they steal the idea? I doubt it. Case of great minds thinking alike. Rockabilly is big. Zombies are big. And everybody is trying to hit on the next big fashion doll. Would have been nice to have gotten a real job out of it.

Don't give up, Lucy. You can still sell custom dolls and toys and maybe that will lead somewhere eventually?

There are guys online who sell custom-painted Hot Wheels, Transformers, etc, you name it, for big bucks and make some decent money at it. Back in my eBay selling days a few years ago I used to follow some of these auctions and was amazed to see how much some of these guy's custom jobs went for, some up to and over a thousand bucks, for a toy that they originally paid 20 bucks for, and then spent a few hours air brushing and customizing it.

Yeah I do doll heads. I mean I managed to pay rent and everything each month in LA without a 'real' job just on my custom work. Since moving back to Arkansas, though, nothing. I think partly because this state will suck out your will to live. It's like it MAKES you want to give up on life. I have to force myself to do something creative sometimes just so I don't forget what I'd rather be doing.

I told my family, I get these loans paid off they might never see me again. If I didn't have to pay 800+ a month for loans, I could, gosh, pay rent and utilities! And oh my mom says "Are you gonna get an apartment in Little Rock?" That's just what I need. No, I don't think Japan is far-e-freaking-nuff away from this state.

Sorry, where are you from?

I'm in the Detroit area. It's bland and depressing as hell around here too so I know just how you feel.

I was doing okay for awhile selling collectibles on eBay for a few years until the economy tanked, and then sales became fewer and fewer. Plus eBay nickel-and-dimed me so much after awhile that it just wasn't worth it trying to sell stuff there anymore. I hear it's changed it's policies so I may go back to try my luck again sometime in the future? You should do the same. Have you ever tried to sell anything here on Amazon?

Amazon won't let you sell stuff you've made, I don't think. Mostly I sell on Etsy.

I got a friend who was from somewhere in Michigan. He came out to be me and my other friend's roommate in LA. He was like our couch guy. Slept in the living room floor, but he paid rent. Last we talked, I think he said he was going back home too because ecomony. Sux.

I do need to get back to selling on eBay, it's like you said though. Sales sort of dropped off. Etsy is nice because the listing fees aren't super high.

I've never heard of Etsy, of course I've been out of the loop on the whole online selling thing for awhile now. I will have to check it out.

If I had your kind of talent. I'd try customizing all kinds of different toys and things and see what works. You just never know what will take off and be the next big thing? That was the funny thing about eBay. Some things that I thought were hot and would try to sell, would hardly get bidded on, and then other items that I thought wouldn't get much of a bid, would go for big bucks? I had that happen so many times.

I remember having to sell my Futurama figures to make rent one month. On the one hand I was sad because one of them was Zoidberg. On the other hand, I made $300.

I feel for you. I've never owned Futurama toys but I've had to sell some things to make room, and for the much-needed cash, so I can relate.

I remember when the Adult Swim figures came out, I wanted a Brak but I couldn't find one, and when I finally found some for sale online, they were way out of my price range of what I was willing to pay.

I do still own my Notch Johnson action figure Mint on the card from the old "Son of the Beach" TV show. I'm going to keep that one till the day I die. I've got a couple of MIB Jackie Chan dolls that I just can't let go of either.

My biggest sales were Hasbro Wrestling action figures, I sold a bunch of those, and a few of the original Thundercats action figures on the card. Thundercats were freaking hot back then. Probably still are.

I have I think the first wave of the Adult Swim action figures. Then Palisades (spelled wrong I'm sure) Went belly-up and the other figures weren't produced. So we have like. Brak's mom and dad. Debbie from Sealab. Master Shake. But no Meatwad or Frylock. No Zorak.

Gotta love Master Shake! Heck, you should be able to customize him pretty easily? Just get a fast food cup complete with straw and lid, a little putty for the hands, a little paint here and there, and voila, a homemade Master Shake.
