One of the auctions includes Shattered Glass Megatron, which is one of my most favoritest BotCon toys ever. I know popular opinion places his pack-in mate SG Rodimus as more appealing, but COME ON YOU GUYS, LET'S HEAR IT FOR EARLY MARVEL HEAD MEGATRON.
Yeah, I took the photos. It hurts a little to be an accomplice to someone losing his really awesome SG Megatron, but if one of you folks buys it, then at least I know it's going to a happy home.
So this is the infamous half-blender of Webcomic Rampage. For those readers of mine who still haven't heard this story, let me retell it here. I shipped two boxes of books to the Austin Dragon's Lair comic shop ahead of myself so that I could sell them to my fans. One box arrived easy-as-you-please! The other box had been opened, books removed, placed in a new box, with the books exchanged with half a blender. HALF A BLENDER. So, yeah. Post Office lost/stole/ate my books, and gave me an incomplete blender in exchange. That was fun! But a good story, I guess?
But the sad, sobering reality is that losing those books cost me a potential few hundred dollars in sales. That blows! So to share this story and to help recoup my losses, since there's no real legal recourse for me to retrieve these books or my lost potential sales, I've doodled a bunch of my characters on the surface of this blender with a Sharpie. And you can own it. Keep in mind, it is an INCOMPLETE blender. You will only get what you see here. Just the bottom, with a plug. There's no top half. The blender also has some scuff marks at some of the edges where its silvery finish was removed in transit. But on the plus side, there's now all these Shortpacked! and Dumbing of Age characters on it. Sweet, huh?
I've left a spot up next to Ultra Car where the winner of the blender can request anyone they feel is important that I've forgotten. (Which, as it turns out, will probably be Mike. Man, how'd I forget him? Oh well, you can request him should you win. Or somebody else! There's also no Dorothy, no Reagan, no Sal...)
So, uh, yeah! You can own this piece of dubious webcomics history.
So here's two new auctions, this time left-over art from two conventions.
First up is a set of 9 sketch cards of Shortpacked! characters I drew at San Diego Comic-Con.
Second up is a set of 7 sketch cards of G.I.Joe characters I (mostly) drew at Canadian Joe Con.
Bid on them if you like 'em! They're one-of-a-kind art.
(Oh, and don't forget yesterday's BotCon 2010 bagged set.)
Oh, hey, also I'm finally getting around to auctioning my BotCon 2010 bagged set! It comes in a bag, and is bagged. In the bag are five toys! Even the toys are individually bagged. There's a lot of baggage!
So if you want Pyro or Clench or Streetwise or Sky-Byte or Breakdown, you might want to check it out. I was going to single out one of them as one you REALLY have to have, but that's basically all of them, because they're fantastic. Well, maybe not Streetwise. I mean, sure, he's Shaft, but he's not nearly as pretty as the others.
They are so pretty.
You should bid on them.
I took six of the original fourteen figures out of the two sets to keep. I'm offering the remaining eight figures. Auction ends in three days! Happy bidding!
