    Default Sonic and Mario towering over you!

    Wow. These would be really cool additions for any game room - if you could afford the shipping.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...355602696&rd=1

    It's a set of two 7-foot-tall Mario and Sonic plastic molded character signs. Shipping is $300, which I can understand. These things are huge and potentially fragile. It'll be interesting to see what the final bid is....

    Heh, the first picture almost makes it look like they are 2-inch figurines. And then, you see the picture where they are stacked up next to the window, they look really tall!

    Perhaps the seller should have put something by it (or stood by them) just to make a reference in the pictures as to how tall they are.

    I DONT THINK THEY ARE WORTH THE SHIPPING COSTS FULL STOP.

    I think it would be nice at $150 all in.

    That guy claims these are larger than life...how would he know? Very likely Sonic and Mario battle it out in Tokyo, Godzilla-style.


    But yeah...jeez those shipping costs are gonna kill this auction. I would feel rather odd having those lying around the house.

    Oh man, I really want those! ! There is no way I can afford the shipping costs however. Even so, I would have to find a place to put them in my room, and the amount of space available in here is not really enough to fit 'em.

    OMG! I would so NEVER sell those, if I owned them! Talk about a KILLER addition to your Room of Doom! Too bad I can't afford to bid on them!

    I think you could drive anywhere in the US for less than $300 and pick these up.

    If I lived close to that guy, I would be all over that auction. I wonder what his reserve is.

    I live in Eden Prairie Minnesota, exactly 20 minutes (in bad traffic) from Minneapolis. What do you think his reserve is? I even own a F-150 to transport them in.
    Condoleezza Rice is nice, but I prefer A Roni!

    MarioAllStar2600, are you really from Long Island? Are you really going to pay that much for shipping? I kinda think that people are going to bid low because of all that shipping, which would make it a great opportunity for someone like me who could just pick it up.
