eBay Last Chance Sale - ACT NOW! Time's Running Out TO BUY THESE GHOSTBUSTERS COLLECTIBLES!

 By Paul Rudoff on May. 23, 2021 at 5:03 PM , Categories: Reviews & Merch

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.

[VIP] Spook Central VIP Holiday Gift Deadline Fast Approaching

 By Paul Rudoff on May. 23, 2021 at 12:00 PM , Categories: VIP Exclusives
Image

Just a reminder that next week is the June 1st cut-off for Spook Central VIP holiday gift eligibility. Everyone who has been a Spook Central VIP member since June 1st or earlier, and remains a VIP member for the next six continuous months, will be sent a holiday present in the mail in December. It will be a completely random Ghostbusters item, in either new or lightly used condition, that may have been previous used in a Spook Central review.

Around the end of November/beginning of December, I will directly e-mail VIP members to get their mailing addresses and to get answers to a quick questionnaire to determine which gift they may like the best. I don't want to send something related to the 2016 film to someone who absolutely hates it.

Ideally, I will send out a gift to all supporters worldwide, with the Spookies who live outside of the U.S. getting something small and lightweight since I can't afford to ship large and heavy items internationally. If that ends up not being feasible, then I will have to limit this benefit to supporters in the United States only. This benefit is subject to termination without advanced notice.

For more information on what you get as a Spook Central VIP member, please read this article.

Career Chronicle - Kurt Fuller (1987-1989)

 By Paul Rudoff on May. 19, 2021 at 8:21 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 2, Cast & Crew

As a franchise, Ghostbusters incorporates several movies and animated television series. As such, there are hundreds of actors who have been a part of the Ghostbusters franchise. The "Career Chronicle" feature here at Spook Central looks at the career of one actor who has appeared in a Ghostbusters movie or television show. I will either explore that actor's entire career, or take a close examination at a certain period of time. Today, I will examine the early film roles of Kurt Fuller, who portrayed Jack Hardemeyer in Ghostbusters II.
