|Handsome World Peacekeepers action figure|
I finally found this older World Peacekeepers guy at a price I was willing to pay ($12.99 + $4.51 shipping).
I initially saw him in one of Vanessa's stories where he is William Langford,Camille's husband. I wasn't too interested in him at first. His face is too narrow, I thought; but the more I saw him in Morristown, the more he grew on me and the desire to add him to my playscale male family -- minus any stories -- increased.
It took several months for me to find him on eBay. I have either been outbid or I forgot to bid on past auctions. On others, I passed, because the sellers were asking up to $50. My desire for him wasn't that great.
Thanks to the heads up from Facebook friend Dee Mahogany Dee (who won one on eBay several months ago), I finally have him.
He arrived nude. Because of that and the couple of nicks on both shins, I would have preferred to pay less. He had been listed for $24 or best offer. There was no way I would have ever paid $23.99 for him in his current condition. So I offered $9.99, just to test the waters. The seller countered with $14.99. I countered that with $12.99 and included a comment to seller that I was concerned about the leg nicks; and based on the auction image of him leaning against a wall, I was not sure if he could stand without assistance. Instead of addressing my concerns, the seller accepted my $12.99 offer. Thus his presence.
I dressed him in the first readily available fashion I saw: Ken Fashionista yellow sleeveless hoodie with Malibu Beach graphics, gray shorts, and black sandals. It's so not him but it is seasonably appropriate.
I am satisfied to have found him and also relieved that he is able to stand on his own.
Thanks again Dee!
