Moving house uncovers rare gem

in colllectibles •  19 days ago

Ok I don't really know if this is rare but I forgot that I had it. I moving to another city and am drastically downsizing my life. I want all that I own to fit into 2 suitcases and I think I nearly accomplished this goal. Mostly it was all about getting rid of the excess and in the meantime donating my very excessive wardrobe (who really needs 100 t-shirts?)

Anyway, while going through all my things I discovered my 8 inch Battle-Ready Ron Burgundy action figure and it is still in the box.

I don't know about you but the movie Anchorman holds a special place in my heart. Even though I didn't even laugh very much in an empty movie theater when it was released, I have since watched it probably in excess of 100 times and constantly quote it to other people as a means of determining if we have much in common.

At the moment it isn't exactly a valuable collectible as doing a quick search revealed that it can be purchased for less than $30. Perhaps that will change in the future. It probably takes a while for these things to become worth a lot and maybe it never will be. I will not be donating this even though it seems quite silly to be carrying a boxed toy from country to country.

I have never reviewed Anchorman, but as a side note, you really should see that movie as it is cinema gold!

I hope your Lego Millennium Falcon will fit in your suitcase!

Maybe I should watch this one as well. If it is good enough for you to have an action figure then it may be worth watching lol.

Talking like that I would think you would be moving to California lol. Limit to 2 suitcases, I was limited to one when I got here. Rent to expensive for a 300 square feet studio lol. $1000+
I feel its gonna take at least 100 years for some noticeable value change. Once a 100 years go by try again lol :P

i just want to have less stuff. I suppose i am a bit envious when i go to someone's house and they have a collection of anything but I am transient. I am moving constantly and do not have a house anywhere... I don't need these things.

Thus reminds me of when I bought nearly all of the Austin Powers action figures produced by McFarlane Toys back in the late 90s.

I held them, unopened, for over 15 years and finally sold them about a year ago for about what I paid for them.

I didnt buy them as an investment, but I was disappointed they didnt increase in value over that time.
