Tiny Earl Figurine - WANT!

Post by BobCat on Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:13 pm

There is a tiny Japanese Earl figurine on eBay, and I placed a bid on it, but someone else is very anxious to own it as well. Not sure if I will continue the bidding war, but I really think it's adorable!

CUTE!! I have to wonder if Cartoonfan is the seller. He was certainly in Japan 10 years ago, and was very comics-minded.

They come from Oklahoma. Was he from there? I can't remember, but in searching for images of those figurines, I saw some shots on Flickr where Isabela posted with someone named something like Momto5dogs had a collection of them, so I thought they might be female. I think that person was from OK too.

You may be right. Last I heard of Charles he was in Tennessee. I remember the name Momto5dogs (or similar) either from Isabela's sites or possibly from our original forum.

that is too cute,. I'm sending out {{{{{{{{{{{{{{good luck vibes}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} for you to win.
I'd bid myself but I don't bid against friends. Also, {{{{{{{{{{{{{{good luck vibes}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} for the seller's dog's cancer treatments

Got it! Didn't really want to pay $18.50 for a tiny thing like that, but I've always wanted a little representative figurine to travel with me to remind me of my critters at home. Besides, it will help someone pay for their dog's cancer treatment. I used to pack my four Mutts figures, but now that they charge for every extra ounce on an airplane, I've left them at home on recent trips. I may leave him in his little box on display, but I really bought him to travel with me. I know I should have a cat to represent my cat and a dog to represent my dogs, but he'll have to do for now.

CONGRATS ON WINNING EARL! I was hoping you'd get it. And if they have an Earl there must be a matching Mooch somewhere out there. Maybe someday you'll find that too.

I don't know about that, I've heard some TSA agents not only embarrass you at the airport, some have been arrested for theft out of passengers luggage they were searching!

No, I haven't been in contact with him/her. Maybe I should ask...

The person's name is Noriko Walters, according to the shipping label. The tiny figurine arrived yesterday. It's pretty cute!

It's very tiny! And so cute! I'll have to try to take a photo of it in my hand or some other way that showcases it's real size.

Earl has an articulated head, so you can turn it to make different poses.

That's a small earring - maybe 1/2" hoop.
