Sometimes you get stupid and sometimes you get lucky. This was the one time I got both.
There was a multi action figure ebay auction. In this auction was a white Emperor among other figures. It was what I was after believing I didnt have one. However at the time, it had been a long time since I had been through the closet and I didnt have an inventory list.
The seller had a few other things in the auction. Including a Hero Factory Space Glider still in its baggie. The seller thought this was the diamond in the rough figure. I have 265 of those. 2 cases yet unopened. There was another figure in this lot. From the picture it looked like a black Membrose. Yawn. Back to the Grey or off white Emperor. That was the prize in this lot. SO I thought.
I won the auction. When it arrived, I stared going through the closet to put it away. WHATS THIS?!?!? I already had an off white Emperor. I didnt need to buy this auction at all. If only I wasnt so stupid and had inventoried my collection.
Altho the cover photo is a little dark, you can clearly see the clear red Membros arms and Cuffs and the figure is MOC.
Stupid and Lucky. Both at the same time. Usually its just the Stupid part, but its nice to be lucky every once in a while. :~)
