Default Pocket Dragons

I have two Pocket Dragons for sale; they're the last of 11 duplicates I got as part of a group I bought on ebay. That's the only reason I'm selling them, I already have them. I have my corner of the living room around my desk so full that I'm building a new display case for Pocket Dragons so I can get the last of this latest bunch displayed. Actually, my wife said she was going to build it, then the task fell to me. But here's a link to a post over on AMCF that shows my desk:

http://www.annemccaffreyfans.org/for...&postcount=296

Now that you can see why I don't need duplicates, here's the two I'm selling:


All Wrapped Up


Be My Valentine

"Wrapped" is the regular piece, not the smaller ornament, and "Valentine" is a "Pocket Dragon Message", so named because he's in a see-through box. If the two aren't new, they're just like it. They're in their boxes, having been removed only to photograph, and have their base stickers and everything that came with them from the original factory. Real Musgrave, the artist, retired last year, so there's been no new ones since.

Anybody interested, make me an offer, we can talk.

I have three of these! I love them because they're so cute! Real was at a mall one time and I bought Slipper Sleeper and he signed it. I'm very tempted to buy these too. I'll have to think about it.

I just purchased three from Draco, and they came beautifully packed in perfect condition. I'm saving for Albacon at the moment, but I'm hoping he'll have more duplicates in the future and we can do a "deal" again! Here's my collection. The three on the left are the ones I bought, including that glorious cookie jar!

I also love your collection Cilla...especially the one that reading the book. It looks very much like one of my more prized collection magazines *Science Fiction Plus*that Anne signed for me a couple of years ago. Besides it looks to be a space dragon and if it is, I will most certainly have to go and find that one soon.

I know the exact one you're talking about, but no, I don't have him. I don't drink coffee........... but I go through a 12 cup pot of tea (hot, of course) every morning. My Bunn coffeemaker, therefore, has never had coffee in it.

Did you take a look at the post over on AMCF that I linked to? I know that there's no way you can make out each and every piece in my cases, but if you're really interested in seeing the collection, it wouldn't take much for me to put up some pics of the individual cases. Just tell me, I'd enjoy showing them all off. I'm still working on the new display case so I can get the last new ones out of their boxes and displayed.

That one is titled "Favorite Book". When you look closely at the 'writing' it looks like how I would think Elven language would be written. I don't know if it's retired, though since the artists are no longer creating, I would think all of them are 'retired'? Draco would be the expert on that!
