When I rediscovered Micronauts and joined Micropolis Embassy when it first started, I was a very naive collector who knew absolutely nothing concerning the history of the Micronauts or the people who created and collected them. This was a cause for some eyebrows over what I am sure to some of the more knowledgeable collectors were 'stupid questions' and more than a few good laughs for the same.
Streamlining, another collector teamed up with Palisades and offered a rare collectors figure for the online group Micropolis Embassy members. This figure has more than its fare share of layers in the story. Finally a new Micronaut to open and play with and it finally arrives and...
And it gets stuck on the west coast sitting in a warehouse because of a dockers strike. Then the Figure was made in the wrong colors. Collectors were in a frenzy. When all was said and done, Palisades started selling the remaining figures on Ebay and they were also including 'Authenticity Certificates'. Not knowing any better, I asked in the group why Palisades was including these certificates but we in the group didnt get them. Looking back...yeah...it was/is a laughable question. And thanks to the collectors of that time for restraining their laughter as well as they did.
In response to my question, Acroray, group moderator issued me this certificate of authenticity. A joke it may have been, but it in itself has earned a place of collectibility and a spot on my wall. Not to mention, a business company also picked up Ray's little characture and made it their company seal.
