ha, no worries tacune. i can't be mad at ya. like i said before, this has been fun... plus the search has given me some "interesting" experiences and helped me discover our awesome local flea market, so it was worth it.


Ok sweet i feel better then. I wish there was a flea market by me best i got is a goodwill but sherman oaks is semi ritsee.

hey, wtfunks, snapwolfe, jazzy and any others who might be finishing up, who wants to share the story of their wacky wall walker?

i think it might be the the golden ticket of the hunt.

i don't want you to give away any secrets, but i figure its close enough to the end that someone couldn't really get one by mail in time to submit anyway (unless you plan to drop it off, i guess?)

so wat's the word, playaz? how did you snag your www?

(tacune, i hope there was a chase involved!)

Dude let me just say being in NW Arkansas this list has been hard as hell. I have made a trip to Dallas and a Trip to KC to find some of the stuff. Good luck to everyone.

in response to your earlier post, i'm definitely not giving up. i'm only missing a couple things so i'll still be sending it in. if anything, maybe they'll feel super nice and give me something for my valiant effort and my sweet kidrobot pasta head that i'm rather proud of. ha. =)

as far as the wacky wall walker, no exciting story from me. that's one of the things i decided i wasn't coughing up more money for. did you have to do anything crazy for it?

Sadly its not a amazing story i spent 4-5 Hours cleaning my grandpas attach looking for items and helping him out i Randomly came across a huge dust bunny and it was a wacky wall walker stuck to a fliping wall walker it was MEGA gross but talk about cloud nine. Oh and my ride left me down there so she could make babies with her possible BF. haha i ended up metroing back from pasadina to china town then holleywood and home it was a long long day and my fiancee was pissed cause my phone died before i got half way back. Walking in the door at almost 1 a.m. im surprised there wasnt a chase, ya know ^^

My wacky wall walker is still pretty dirty tho. I kinda envy the ebay buyers who got theres new.

tacune- sweet find. helping gramps paid off. nice.

i think dirty will count more than clean fake. did anyone get a legit www off ebay?

and enjoi^ i would recommend ups 2nd day for last minute. it is half the price of overnight, and gaurunteed, unlike priority.

any other wacky stories?

its a 6.5 hour drive i should be able to feel pretty confident about 2nd daying a package . or prioritying it (although i dont think i'll take that chance)

I was the one that posted that thread about him when he first beat me to buying the wallwalker. So, I can back him up that he bought the real one.

OK, did what I could, and shipped. Did pretty well. Surprised I found some of the harder items. Lucked out on the Wacky Wall walker (had one from the mid/late eighties in a box of college stuff....who knew).
Embarrassed myself with the Kid Robot Head tri-colored pasta.....done, but, well, embarrassing...

Really had a good time with the hunt. Was exactly what I needed to do right now. Took my mind off of a whole bunch of deadlines....

Looking forward to seeing how I did.......but I miss my Wacky Wall Walker already.

And, sadly, I have no good stories to go along with the hunt. Oh, well, next year?
