Just wondering if anyone here possesses this? It's value has likely skyrocketed of late (due to the Stranger Things TV phenomenon)

True story, I brought one of these to the Midnight Auction at NTRPG con in 2015, it didn't even get a bid at $1. I'll have to dig it out and stick it up now....

This uptick in value could potentially be attributed to this miniature's regular appearance in the new NetFlix series, Stranger Things (which was amazing by the way) :-).

Yah, they bought the Grenadier molds fair and square.

otoh, many Partha molds were simply junked.  :(


My friends Dave & Gary made a quantum leap in the human soul. Remember them.

BTW, apropos of nothing really, NTRPG  con owns the entire Julie Guthrie collection of molds. We'll get around to doing something with them.....someday.....

I just watched the first couple of episodes last night and was like "I'm sure I have that mini somewhere!"

Just looked and I can't find the damn box!!!

Everything they had, plus more. The ones CSM had were actually our molds (long story) and they were returned right before CSM crashed and burned.
