Happy ending to a rant!
Uhyeah. Remember the seller who kept changing the terms and the price on me?

Julian of Norwich had a point: All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

Peeps, say hello to Trouble.

Trouble is, as best I can tell, a Lucas 1st who has been pampered and protected from sunlight his whole resin life. No discoloration, no chips, no scratches, no stains. I could wish that his previous owners hadn't multiple-pierced his ears, but such is life. I need to replace his eyelashes and tighten his stringing just a tad, but otherwise, he's fresh as a daisy.

Cast in 2002.

Banzai, Volks.

(Apologies for the phenomenally awful picture--all God's chillun's having a bad hair day, and the flash + incandescent light don't help one bit. I just couldn't wait to post.)

Wheeeeee, thanks!

*Not looking at your userpic, in case I'm infected with SwD Lucas Fever!*

This post cracks me up - you didn't listen to a single one of us, and look what it got you? ;P

He's a cutie and a half!

Aw, shucks, you noticed.


In my defense, I didn't play the bidding-war game, and I refused to add money for the "extras" that I didn't want. Judging by the total lack of response to my cheery thank-you PM and measured but positive feedback as soon as the package arrived, I think the seller isn't what you might call happy with me.

I'm so crushed.

(I need to try those gray Zouks in him--the ones I bought from you--because while these Soom Purple Nebulas are okay, they aren't thrilling me. That means wrestling the Zouks away from Kit, though . . .)

He's absolutely lovely, though that's not the default faceup (it's much nicer than the original Volks one imo!)

My Lucas 2nd has been de-yellowed several times .. that's so fab you got one in such good condition ♥

A-ha! That's what I get for thinking I can see enough detail in that tiny picture from the 2006 SD Encyclopedia--the eyebrows looked the same (though I thought at the time that they weren't very Volksish). *editing*

I was prepared for serious yellowing, undisclosed chips, you name it. Will stop griping about the seller right now! ;-)

Cassiel has some photos here of the original if you want to check it out~


I remember when I first saw the Lucas and Chris first versions ... I thought they were SO ugly and that no one would buy them because they were so expensive! XD

Oy, that's right--the Lucas Eyebrows of Doom!

That Lucas 1st outfit is adorable; trying to track one down will keep me happily occupied for quite a while.

It's so funny, isn't it, the way our eyes change over time? I thought the same thing as you did when I first saw Lucas and Chris (or "Clith," as Babelfish rendered it sometimes when I started looking at Y!J). I've really only been bitten by the Lucas bug in the past several months, as I worked through my hyper-realistic BJD phase and circled back to the classics. I could say it's destiny, though, since Lucas 1st was released the day after my birthday . . .

*nods head to Julian of Norwich* ^______________~

This is so funny to me because I have a new MSD girl and was thinking of naming her Trouble, but than decided on something else. :)

For no good reason, in the middle of this weird purchase drama, I started thinking about Madame Butterfly's little boy, and boom. There was the name. ;-)

All the preambles don't count cause he's so darn cute.

(Deleted comment)
Hee! Oh, I'm definitely laughing--I mean, what else is there to do?

What a sweetie! I am really glad it all worked out. Silly seller, he is so much better off at your house!

He is just adorable, if a little haughty (oh, them eeeebil elitest Volkses!). And in truly amazing condition. *happy happy happy*

i can't wait to see more pics of him. he looks really good!!!!!

will he get a new faceup? just curious. he is great!!! this is about the only boy that I think would look good with my girlies. ^__^

His faceup is fine for now--I *really* like the understated natural look, and it's in good shape, so I'm not going to bother with sending him off.

You know, I think you're right! An F16 boy might be just what your Amazons need. :-)

It worked out! It worked out!! *happydance*
