HA! I actually STILL HAVE that drawing desk (no box, or anything like that). I still use it for some of my comic book work. Never got around to buying a pro-grade light box because A) they are WAY too expensive and B) I had this one and it serves me just fine. Has for over 20 years.

You have to make sure to use the correct wattage bulb or the surface gets quite hot. I use one of those energy saver bulbs in it now.

I had actually forgotten what the box looked like. Thanks for posting!

It works for professional comic work, as well? That is truly awesome! Since I never had the actual desks themselves, (just the sheets) I fully expected them to be have been kid-sized.

Well, it IS small. But it does what it has to.

That's what she said.

(sorry)

I'm so psyched. I've been winning auctions for REALLY cheap all week long. Got 7 different items coming to me so far, including a Q Bert plastic bank which I was outbid on before for a selling price of around $30, I just won one for $5.50!!! Plus I put a best offer of $35 on a $49.99 or BO lot of a TOMY Tron Lightcycle (yellow, loose with ripcord) AND a Tron Yo Yo from the early 80's MIP, and the guy accepted! I also got a TOMY Acrobot in a Japanese card that I've never seen before, and a TOMY rip cord robot on a Japanese card that I've never seen period, on any card. Plus I got 2 vintage Pink Panther and Detective Clouseau windups for 99 cents!!! And I got a Mr. Men windup from the 70's still with the original box, from a seller in England. This was the only really expensive thing, but I still did alright, with shipping it was $28 US. I'll post pics when items arrive.

Nice^^^

@ LT Clutch, I've been lucky, except I bought that TOMY Lightcycle on the 14th, never got a shipping confirmation, wrote to him 2 times, the second time he answered and said he was "shipping it tomorrow" and sending me the tracking number "tomorrow night" He never did (that would have been Monday, yesterday, so I wrote him again, no answer, but I see he's posted something else for sale. How long do you guys think I should wait before contacting PayPal over this and putting a claim in?

@Hicks: That's a sweet pic. Dead-Eye looks kewl riding that rig. :)

@Else: It sounds like the seller is seriously slacking. Check out his feedback and contact someone who hasn't been pleased with his service before putting in a Paypal claim. I would start to worry a bit given how he's stalling on stuff and not writing you back anymore. They're all looking like red flags to me.

Well, he finally wrote me back today and said he sipped it priority and gave me a tracking number...so hopefully that's the end of it..

Great to hear things turned out fine, man! See? I told you the Toy Gods are on your side. 8)

I'm digging the Pink Panther and Inspector. Mr. Men looks cool, too. The Tron freebies were a nice touch after all those delays.
