I wanted to share details of our eBay charity auction with you. If you're able to spread the word with your friends and readers, we will be eternally grateful.
What it's all about ...
For me, it began seven years ago, when I first learned of Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, an incredible group devoted to providing hospitals, doctors and scholars across the nation the resources necessary to treat and enrich the lives of those affected by various forms of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Since 2010, I have led a small group of friends - we call ourselves the New Jersey Grabowskis - in fundraising for the foundation through a variety of local community and social media tactics. Last year, my girlfriend Caitlin and I introduced the charity toy auction into the fray in an attempt to take our fundraising efforts to the next level - and boy did it ever!
My team has now raised more than $80,000 since we began seven years ago, and as we approach the homestretch of this year's campaign, we're hoping that you can help us elevate our fundraising once again by sharing word of our charity eBay auctions with your friends and readers.
We are auctioning a variety of toys and collectibles from our personal collection. I gathered all these items during my many years working with Hasbro's Entertainment Brands and through friends in the industry. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each and every item in this auction will go to Receptions For Research. Unlike last year, when we posted a dozen or so items a week across a month or so, this year we're putting everything (30+ items) up all at once for a single 7-day run. IT'S LIVE NOW!
Here's a link to our eBay auction: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fm.html%3F_nkw%3D%26_armrs%3D1%26_ipg%3D%26_from%3D%26_dmd%3D2%26_ssn%3Dcelgin013%26_sop%3D16

Transformers Cartoon Animation Bible for Cel. Model sheets. More Than Meets The Eye. G1
This is a complete 68 page animators bible for the first Transformers cartoon episode More Than Meets The Eye (Arrival From Cybertron in the UK) I obtained this from a former Marvel USA employee over 15 years ago. The pages are a strange size, larger than a normal letter size and longer, I’ve not seen paper this size anywhere else. It includes the animation design for every 1984 character plus humans, the Ark and Shockwave. It also includes designs for how each character should be shown to Transform. Some robot names are incorrect or switched as this was put together during the early stages of Transformers creation. There are also pages to show the height comparisons between robots and how robots mouths should move. It’s very rare to find a full intact set such as this. I’ve deliberately only shown parts of each page to preserve the exclusivity of the images. I am starting bidding at just 5 bucks a page! No reserve! If you need any more information just ask. Lots more pictures below, take a look!
Though the holiday season for giving extravagant gifts will have come and gone by the end of January, Barrett-Jackson, the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, will sell two ultimate toys at its Scottsdale auction. This duo of the most famous vehicles in the world from the Hollywood big screen will cross the block at WestWorld … and they can be yours.
Optimus Prime®, the iconic truck from the “Transformers™” movie franchise will sell to the highest bidder in front of a capacity crowd that includes more than 300,000 event participants and 5.5 million television viewers worldwide. Fear not, Optimus will not be alone. It will be accompanied by its brother-in-arms, a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro used in “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction,” known as Bumblebee™.
Lot #1325.1 - When it came to creating the first live-action "Transformers" movie, the most important characterization was certainly that of "Optimus Prime." An entire team of artists and illustrators worked tirelessly, drawing potential trucks and cars, trying to zero in on just the right look for each robot/vehicle. When the film's production designer showed Michael Bay a photo of the enormous Peterbilt tractor, the director was immediately taken by the lines and size of the truck, even through he know he would face intense criticism for his choice - in the same way he did for selecting a GM Camaro in place of the original VW Beetle known as the beloved robot Bumblebee. Both of Bay's picks ended up enthralling new audiences as well as diehard fans of the sci-fi series. The Peterbilt, a more aggressive truck, was also used as Bay's tip-of-the-hat to Steven Spielberg's 1971 film, "Duel." This vehicle is one of the tractors used. It was a picture and stunt vehicle and is being sold "AS-IS" and "WITH ALL FAULTS" and is subject to execution of a Paramount Waiver. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY. NOT CURRENTLY STREET LEGAL, FOR DISPLAY ONLY, MAY NOT BE EMISSIONS COMPLIANT IN ALL 50 STATES.**
Lot #1325.2 - "Bumblebee," Resto-Mod built to use in the fourth installment of the "Transformers" film franchise, "Transformers: Age of Extinction," starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Michael Bay, the current owner of the vehicle. LS2 fuel-injected Corvette engine, 6-speed overdrive transmission, custom suspension, mini tubs, Wilwood brakes plus added stunt extra caliper, 9" Ford rear end, touchscreen navigation stereo system, custom three-piece racing wheels, Nitto low-profile tires, hideaway headlights, custom Halo LED yellow headlights, yellow Ridetech "TigerCage" rollcage, custom-made carbon-fiber fender flares and front splitter, power hood latch, satin black paint with high-gloss yellow accents, carbon-fiber engine covers, Auto Meter Cobalt gauges, system kill within glovebox, Eddie Motorsport hood hinges, custom billet core support bars with yellow accents, smoothed firewall, hydraulic braking assist.
