Due to space constraint, I have decided to sell some of my old stuff which I no longer display and which I do not really like. These include McDonalds' free glasses (back since Beijing Olympics) and Gundam SeeD Destiny action figures which I used to display a few years back. I am selling my Marvel: Avengers figurines from KFC too as I am not a big fan of Western cartoons. Haha.. perhaps I bought them thanks to impulse buying back then. Buy hey, if it is not due to space constraint, I don't mind keeping them.
Anyway, I think it is quite impossible to sell these things. So I was pleasantly surprised when someone asked about the figure (although in the end the person did not buy it). I was even more excited to find that one of the item was sold. Yay!! That was my first selling experience on eBay. A bit scared to meet up with the person haha.. I imagine someone who would look otaku-ish geekish. He turned out to be a nice and friendly guy, nothing like otaku or geek. Anyway, thanks for being my first customer and for hassle free transaction.
People hardly come to read my blog and most of the time, the comments I got are spam. I was shocked when I got a comment regarding my Final Fantasy VIII figures. I wonder how the person discovered I just recently get the Selphie, Quistis, Leviathan figurine from eBay. Lol.. And as much as I would be happy to sell away my damaged Seifer-Odin statue for money, I do not want to cheat people their money. Seifer-Odin is usually the most commonly sold (and the cheapest too) so with patience, I think he will get something more worth his money.

Another surprise came yesterday when someone sent me message on eBay offering to buy Selphie, Quistis, Leviathan for 25% more than what I paid o_0 Looks enticing right? Haha.. But no, I am a huge FF VIII fan and have been dreaming of these statues for ages, not gonna sell them away. And again, I told him that with that amount, he could easily get something new on eBay. Before I bought mine, I saw one being sold for USD1500 mah.. Anyway, I wonder how that person managed to find out the fact that I actually won the bid for that figure sia. I thought all the eBay bidders are not visible except to the seller. But I can understand these people. After all, I also will do or have done crazy things in order to get information or to buy these statues.
I just lost another auction for Rinoa-Siren statue last nite. Shoot! :( Why did it sell for so much again? I really regret I missed out the $260 one about a month ago. Grr.. So much for that and Squall-Bahamut as the "easiest" and "cheapest" to find. I end up with these 2 only that I don't have.
