Ouch, sorry to see what happened to Frank. Is it just the base that took the damage? Possibly fixable?

Definitely not fixable.

I've been wondering what kind of "bust" could be rendered from the top half.  The head is undamaged, but the interior of the wax is much lighter color than the surface.

Then, I could re-melt all the leftover wax down into a/some smaller candle/candles.

I wish I was more talented at such things.

That sucks, but what can you do. Move on and think about the next great find. It might be just around the corner!

Stuff happens.  I've had great luck on eBay and with the Post Office.

Not complaining - just reporting.  I thought it would interest some of the other collectors.

In the quest to obtain the most memorable of my childhood toys, I finally acquired this one. A 1978 boxed green Mattel Suckerman. I remember finding $7 or so on the floor of a department store (Alexanders). I actually looked around to see if anyone was in the area who may have lost it. Seeing no one, I was convinced I did my due diligence. I then used the money to buy this guy. The boxed version not the bagged header card one (no different). Box is a little ragged which is fine w/me. Still has the clear window insert and warranty card. Reinforced the tears and flaps and will cover with celo-wrap to keep it protected for display.

Wish I had 2 of each toy as a kid....1 to play with and 1 kept mint in the box!!

Not sure if I posted this, but my wife bought me the Kong Chaulkware and the advertisement poster behind it for my birthday.

About 13 inches tall, bigger than I thought it'd be.  The photo is from the eBay auction. I've seen this before but never owned one.  If anybody has a clue as to manufacturer or era, I'm interested. 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

I love cats.  The diecut is late 1950s BEISTLE.
