Default New Acquisitions: Starlux

After some vigorous and heated bidding on eBay last weekend, I managed to acquire these pieces:

Starlux bongo, made for the World Wildlife Fund (the new centerpiece of my entire collection)

Thanks folks. Yes, I was quite lucky to acquire these. I missed out on the WWF running oryx and a few others. The seller actually had two bongos; one of them, not mine, went for over $4,000! As I said, the bidding was VERY heated during the last few moments.

$4,000. I wouldn't pay that for any model. I could pay off my car with that and still have money to buy Schleich. Hope you didn't pay half that. They are all beautiful. Conratulations on them.
