Post Auction Excitement

It's been a very exciting time. So many things have happened since the end of the auction of my Action 52 Prototype and Original artwork. First I'd like to thank the 1,000's of visitors to this blog for visiting. And to the 100+ that have already subscribed or followed, I'll do my best to keep you informed and entertained.

Since the ending of the auction I've been contacted by several people regarding my Action 52 Prototype and the artwork. Some have already asked if\when I'd be putting it up for auction again, others have made offers, all were very excited for the find. It appears my readers that this "is" just the beginning of this story. Others that contacted me have very interesting ideas about the future of these items and the Action 52 project. Let's keep it simple but interesting, one of them used the word "REUNION" a lot.

Here's a tidbit for you all. Take a look at the Action 52 \ Cheetahmen commercial:

and pause it at 0:59 seconds. See anything familiar ?

how about now (from my auction) ?

Nice eh ? Anyone catch this one ?

From the Active Enterprises booth at the Consumer Electronics Show, see the poster to the right ? Look familiar ? How about the one directly under the word "Enterprises" ? Yes, it's the Cheetahmen !

If anyone has a better quality picture of that booth please forward it to me I can post about your contribution if you want, name, website, blog, etc..

More to come as the future unfolds.

Auction Ended

So readers, the eBay auction for the rare Nintendo NES Action 52 Prototype cart has ended.

The final numbers ? 10,430 interested, obsessed, or lost people were curious enough to view the auction. People from all parts of the world including, but not limited to, Germany, Austria, Canada, Great Britian, Switzerland, Ireland, Japan, Russian Federation, Belgium, Norway, just to name a few. 50 offers, some generous, some not so generous, but, thanks to all who participated !

Question: Can anyone guess what my first auction question was ?
Answer: Some curious gamer asked if they could come to Miami to see the items in person before they get shipped to who knows where. Pictures will have to do, I politely declined.

Question: Can anyone guess what the highest offer was ?
Answer: Suffice it to say it was a generous offer but it just was not enough to purchase this rare item.

Question: Would you have really sold it ?
Answer: Yes, for the right price.

Question: What's my favorite quote referencing this auction ?
Answer: Someone on a forum posted:

"The retail game itself is ultra rare, and this is a prototype. $100,000 is a @#$% ton for it, but when you own one of only two instances of something in the world you don't have to be reasonable."

Question: What now ?
Answer: It's going to be 'safe'ly (pun intended) tucked away for a while. I wrote this in the "The Past" tab detailing my history with Action 52, I have a feeling this is just the beginning.

BTW, I don't think I'll be including the one-of-a-kind posters with any future sale. I've really grown very attached to them during the last few weeks.
