PostSubject: Brown Pelican   Thu May 27, 2010 8:55 am

As I've learned this is one of the most rare items - and now there's one at ebay.de for sale - new and with tag!

I think I can't afford it at the moment - I guess it will raise in astronomic heights, still more than nine days left -, but maybe anybody else here would need it to complete his collection?

I did already bid on it now, thanks for the tip.
It will be hard to beat me in this, becuae i want it really badly, so anyone who is interested too, you are bidding against me.
Nothing wrong with that, i only want you guys to know.... Laughing Shocked

Well, good luck to you all. I took the big hit to get this piece long ago, which is good considering how many more really expensive figures there are to collect out there. Are you willing to spend 200 euros? What a Face

Now it costs 138,87 Euro

I think you have an brown Pelican anymore?
You told you has bought him for 45 Euro.

Whot do you want with an second?

And the rare Pinto was sold for 350 Euro and a few month later for 120 Euro.

The Armadillo was sold for 50 Euro for 2 Years, now you became 15 Euro.

The Wild Boar with the green paint got last year 25 Euro, this year 1, 2 oder 3 Euro.

The first Satchmo was sold for 56 Euro, the last for 12 Euro.

You see, you can get all for an good price when you can wait.

Wow, that jumped fast Shocked

I find it interesting to watch these auctions because I honestly didn't believe that they fetched these sort of prices.

Hmmm.....it's 139 euros with almost 9 days left to go. If your strategy is to drive the price up to a point where only you can afford it, then everything is going as to plan. The only drawback is that you'll pay a fortune to get it..... Rolling Eyes

If you will remember, everyone laughed at me for what I paid to win mine on auction, but it appears that what I paid will be a bargain compared with this one. Somewhere in Germany, Mario is a very happy fellow right now. :)

It is beginning to look like Torben was quite correct in his prediction..... Wink

I would further note that as a result of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the brown pelican, in real life, is taking a beating, or rather a thorough coating. It is becoming a symbol of the devastation wreaked upon nature by mankind, at least in the USA. The Schleich brown pelican may be super-rare, but in real life here in the States, they may become even rarer than their PVC cousins. It's really very, very sad. Shocked

Of course, we all still want our creature comforts (no pun intended), all based on a petroleum economy, and over 50 % of the American public still are in favor of offshore oil drilling. Then again, one can point out, with quite a bit of truth, that if our oil doesn't come from the American offshore "continental shelf" or just beyond, it comes from the Middle East, Nigeria, or somewhere else that now has a spoiled environment.

Drink up, lads, and don't forget to turn off the light before we all leave.....

I bought my first one with tag for 45 euro indeed some years ago, but i had to sell my complete Schleich collection then, as most know here... Sad
But i am on the way back! Very Happy

Well, i am the last who wants the price to be high, but ok, it is a rare item, and prices went up too far...
I am known as the bargain-hunter in our scenes...
You have to bleed for an item you want...
I have a price in mind what i want to pay for this item, if its going up too high, i will let it go, even when i can afford it... Shocked
I just want to do quick business on rare items, i am not patient at the moment... affraid

Yes, I fully understand about "...bleed for an item you want." Wink We are the same way, in that I too have a specific amount in mind for each piece, as a "ceiling." And, of course, we want to get the rarest figures, since they are appreciating in price at an ever-accelerating pace. Crying or Very sad

Good luck with the pelican.

The brown pelican has flown away. All of that seller's auctions are kaput for some reason. Too bad, as he had something else I was interested in..... Sad

Guten Tag,

dies ist ein Hinweis des eBay-Sicherheitsteams zu folgendem Angebot:

260609795125 - SCHLEICH*14173*Brauner Pelikan*brown Pelican*+FÄHNCHEN*

Unseren Unterlagen zufolge haben Sie auf den oben genannten Artikel geboten. Wir haben dieses Angebot aus eBay entfernt, weil der Verkäufer gegen die eBay-Grundsätze verstoßen hat.

Wenn Sie auf den genannten Artikel geboten haben, wir diesen jedoch vor Ablauf der Auktion gelöscht haben, kommt kein Kaufvertrag zwischen Ihnen und dem Verkäufer zustande, so dass sie den Artikel nicht erworben haben.

Sollten Sie den angebotenen Artikel jedoch bereits gekauft haben, bevor das Angebot von uns gelöscht wurde, bleiben ihre vertraglichen Verpflichtungen gegenüber dem Verkäufer bestehen.

Dem Verkäufer steht es frei, den Artikel unter Beachtung der eBay-Grundsätze erneut einzustellen. Wenn der Verkäufer den Artikel wieder einstellt, können Sie selbstverständlich wieder darauf bieten.


I have thought something like that.
Because he solds a lot of satchmos, but he don`got any rating for an satchmo and his prices went in to the cellar and he sold and sold..., so you could see, that he only wanted to earn quick money.

Peter, I may be misinterpreting the situation, but I believe that eBay killed his auctions because he was using their eBay messaging system to sell Satchmos offline, which is a big no-no in eBay land.
