eBay Last Chance Sale - ACT NOW! Time's Running Out!

Image

(This is a reposting of a Spook Central blog post, in an effort to get more exposure for the matter.)

After 10 years or so, my time selling on eBay is coming to an end soon. Not that I'll miss it, as I've put up with a great deal of BS from eBay over the years, as has been well documented on The Corner Penthouse. My decision to stop selling stuff on eBay, and maybe even online anywhere, basically stems from two causes. (1) Some of this stuff has been unsold for DECADES and I need to get it out of my house, and (2) Very soon eBay will force me into their Managed Payments system, which prohibits me from receiving and using payment from buyers via PayPal.

On May 21st, I got the warning (when submitting a revised listing) that my "deadline to sign up for eBay to manage your payments is approaching. To continue listing new items, relisting, and revising listings, you are required to update your account details now at ebay.com/startpayments.{e72812-1134540x}". Of course, eBay never sent me any e-mails about this beforehand, or even gave me a set date when they will force me to stop accepting PayPal. I assume this first notice is like a "30-day warning", but with eBay, they could pull the trigger at any time. They like to play by their own rules, which is another reason I have no desire to continue selling there.

I won't get into it any further - that's for a future The Corner Penthouse post - but suffice to say, if you want any of the items I have up on eBay, NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!!! Once the unspecified "final deadline" for Managed Payments date hits, probably in mid-June, but could be sooner, that's it! Everything gets donated or thrown out. I've been selling online for OVER 20 YEARS, and it's not worth it anymore. I put in more effort than I get in return. So, consider this a "Last Chance Sale".

ALL 475+ ITEMS CAN BE FOUND BY CLICKING HERE. There are LOTS of wrestling memorabilia, some vintage Playboy magazines (is the 1990s considered "vintage"?), lots of video game manuals and artwork - including some for the Atari 5200, TONS of DVDs and Blu-rays (including replacement discs), comic books, sports and trading cards, vintage photographs, entertainment magazines, PlayStation and Xbox and Wii video games, books, audio CDs, collectibles, and much more! Since Spook Central is a Ghostbusters website, I thought I'd highlight all of the GHOSTBUSTERS ITEMS I have for sale, including several vintage Kenner The Real Ghostbusters toys.

Click on the images below to go to the eBay listing with more details and photos. If the prices seem high, that's because they have to cover the THREE VERY HIGH FEES associated with a sale: eBay fee, PayPal fee, and USPS postage fee. I'm always open to doing off-eBay deals (and keeping money out of eBay's pocket), with payment made directly through PayPal. That will be cheaper for you, since you don't have to pay sales tax to eBay. That's an extra fee that eBay adds onto a sale for the buyer, and money that eBay collects, which I don't have any part of. If you're located in the United States, just send me an e-mail. Outside the U.S. becomes trickier due to the high cost of International postage, but I'm not 100% opposed to it if you're willing to pay the higher cost of International shipping, and you buy enough to make it worth my time to deal with it.

Songbird (2020) Blu-Ray Review

Image

Over the past year, there have been a handful of movies and television shows that have capitalized on the COVID-19 pandemic. Just off the top of my head, I can recall Connecting... on NBC, Love in the Time of Corona on Freeform, and Social Distance and Malcolm & Marie on Netflix. 2020 closed out with the VOD premiere of Songbird, which was, likely, the first feature film to be produced during the pandemic.

Invisible Sue (Plötzlich Unsichtbar) DVD Review

Image

I've been visiting various Dollar Tree stores across Long Island and checking out their selection of DVDs and Blu-rays. While I occasionally find a "gem", usually the selection are a bunch of duds. One consistency I've found is that the boxes are usually cluttered with dozens and dozens of kids and family titles from Viva Pictures Distribution. After constantly seeing these titles everywhere, I thought I'd plop down a Dollar and check out some of them; namely BFF Detectives (2019) (aka Die Drei !!! [The Three Exclamation Marks]), Four Enchanted Sisters (2020) (aka Sprite Sisters - Vier zauberhafte Schwestern [Four Lovely Sisters]), Invisible Sue (2018), Antboy (2013), Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury (2014), and Antboy 3 (2016). I figured that even if each movie sucked, I wouldn't be out more than a buck, and I could always pass it along to someone else.

Those first two films weren't very good, and I don't feel like re-watching them just to write a review. However, I did like Invisible Sue, and I have some feelings about the Antboy trilogy, so I might as well get my Dollar's worth and use them to generate more content for the site. So, let's get this VERY LONG & IMAGE-INTENSIVE article started...

Gorillas in the Mist Blu-Ray Review (Retro VHS Style)

Image

Gorillas in the Mist arrives on Blu-ray as part of Mill Creek Entertainment's Retro VHS Style series, with packaging designed to look like the VHS videocassettes of the 1980s and 1990s. Several other titles in the series have already been reviewed on The Corner Penthouse, and I'm always excited when Mill Creek announces more. It's fun to see if it's a title I used to own on VHS, or one whose trailer I remember seeing at the start of some other VHS tape, or even some obscure movie I've never heard of before.
