    Smile Elusive Astro Orbiter is FINALLY mine!

    Scanning ebay this evening....on a whim before logging off for the night I typed in 'astro orbiter' ...WHOOOOOOP! under the 'buy it now' pops up one FIRST EDITION, SIGNED w/ FIRST DAY PLAQUE (!!!) ....I think my heart skipped a beat!! Didn't care that it was first day or signed but really wanted to keep going with the 1st edition theme I'd started.... Any of you searching for this tony item know exactly the feeling I'm talking about....been looking for this puppy for going on a year and have watched a few slip thru my hands out bid on cursed ebay (it's only cursed when I don't win my bids, otherwise it totally rocks!). Finally, victory is mine. ;-) I will sleep well tonight my friends, yes I will.

    Now...to find the Haunted Mansion 1st edition without paying $999, I will be totally caught up.

    oooo I guess it did come across as a bit of a boast....really not a bragger by nature, this was just such a momentous moment for me..I felt compelled to broadcast my success. most humble apologies to those still on the quest..hopefully my post was also a glimmer of hope that those elusive missing coveted pieces ARE indeed out there at yet reasonable prices!

    Yeah, I guess I would boast as well..
    Although you realize the Astro Orbitor is going to be re-released in the fall..

    Yes...but OCD that I am, I must have all 1st editions... ;-) my wallet suffers as ebayers are making a mint off my weakness.

    Wow cool! I've had this ritual of checking at night before bed a few times a week but hadn't done so in about 2 weeks. Grats!
