I am Soooo newbie at the behind the scenes shark deal, I'm sure I pretty much botched the whole effort. In hindsight I would have played my hand differently if I had a minute to think about it, but the clock was ticking.
I also knew I was hosed because by the time I got to the listings (fourteen minutes after they were posted) they already had 8 views. There was no way I'd get a deal done - but I made my offer anyway.
It's been a jazillion refreshes later on my ebay message inbox with no joy - The auctions are pulled, and I know that someone with more liquid assets nabbed them.
As soon as they were pulled I checked the sellers closed listings to see if someone talked them into BIN, but they didn't. So either the flurry of activity made them pull the items until some research could be done, or (and this is my guess) someone made the best offer and they took it off-eBay. Either way I know they'll go now for more than I can spend, so it's safe to post. I'm just dying to find out who got them if it's a MM member!
Here they were:
BATMAN/ROBIN Mego Corp. Action Figure Head & Access. - eBay (item 220757191222 end time Mar-19-11 16:47:19 PDT)
SUPERMAN Mego Corp. Action Figure Head & Suit With Cape - eBay (item 220757189349 end time Mar-19-11 16:46:27 PDT)
SPIDERMAN Mego Corp. Action Figure Head & 7 pc. Access. - eBay (item 220757187845 end time Mar-19-11 16:45:46 PDT)
These little forensic papertrail adventures are fun... but boy is it nerve-wracking!
