Frivolous showing off of new pick-up

31 posts in this topic

No new info to post or any rare or unseen find. Just showing off my latest pick up which is a rare event these days. No space toy collectors in my neighborhood so you guys and gals are it. ;-)

 

I was surprised at the size of this X-5 rocket when I got it in the mail. I may not have won this piece if it weren't for the seller mistakenly saying the shipping would be $154 in the original listing. I retracted my snipe bid and emailed the seller to clear up the shipping charge but I didn't see the reply until the original auction was over. The seller said it was a mistake and the shipping would actually be free. By that time the original auction ended with no bids (I chalked that up to the confusion over the shipping charge). I said I would take it for the opening bid and he re listed as a buy it now for the previous opening bid. I'm not thinking I got a fantastic deal but a decent one.

 

The second pic is for comparison with the other standard size rockets.

Lovely display. I saw lots and lots of saucers when I was a kid - there seemed to be a few new ones every year, but never any of these rockets.
