I Even Found The Count on eBay!

Ebay, you gotta love it. Want to find a broken video game? They’ve got it. The last card you need to complete your Dukes of Hazzard trading card set? It’s there. A rare Etruscan nose snood? Oh, sure. And then there’s this:

Hey look at that! A Dracula figure. Sweet.

Wait, is that Dracula? Let’s take a closer look.

That’s not Dracula, that’s Gilbert Gottfried!

Dracula Gottfried! This is so cool! I always wanted a Count Gilbert figure ever since he made his first appearance many years ago on the Howard Stern Show!

    When I saw the words ” The count “, I thought of the vampire Muppet on Sesame Street. ” 1 bat. ha,ha,ha. 2 bats. ha, ha, ha, etc. “.

        He also looks like a Muppet version of Jamie Farr ( AKA Jamil Farra ). Uncanny.

          If you check on eBay or elsewhere, you can find the rest of the line, which ranges from slightly better to a lot worse. I also suspect these are unlicensed.

            There’s not much you CAN’T find on eBay. I sold some things on there, but I often bought more than I sold. Everything from Coptic Ethiopian crosses to Day of the Dead folk art. Which explains why my apt. looks like the Smithsonian spilled over into it. 🙂

              You are the definition of eclectic 🙂

                Yep, & I had some serious trust fund money to support my habit back then. What happened to the trust fund is another matter. Ouch !

    I dressed up as Count Von Count for Halloween a few years ago.
