There are lots more - I am just holding back for now

Mondo has released a line of Tiki mugs based on Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Squarepants series! The line has three models to start, Spongebob, his sidekick Patrick, and Squidward's moai themed home.
The mugs were designed by Joe Allard and sculpted by Ramirez Studios. Each mug comes in three variants, 'Regular' which matches the original color scheme shown in the animation, 'Riptide' which is a brown tinged blue'ish glaze, and 'Driftwood' which is brown. Depending on the mug, like the Patrick mug, the Driftwood variant gives it a faux-wood look.
Releases prices are $50 for Spongebob, $55 for Squidward's house, and $60 for Patrick. Expected ship date is sometime in August.
The Amazon exclusive "Limited-Edition Disney Tiki Mickey Mouse Plush" is temporarily back in stock!
Amazon has a limit of one per customer and are expected to sell out fast. I've placed my order this morning. :D
I'm looking for a 'Tiki Lounge' light that was originally sold by Spencer's Gifts with 'Polynesian Pleasures' branding.
This would be great in my home office but I seem to always miss them when I come across one for sale and, the last one I did find, the seller didn't want to ship. :(
Having collected sci-fi item for several decades, and lately have been getting into Tiki and MCM collectibles, the thought of what will happen to all of those items if something happens to me is a real concern. There really aren't others in my family who would be aware of the true value of some of items so it's distressing to think about some of the stuff ending up at the local 'thrift store' or, worse, tossed in the trash. The thought, for example, of author signed manuscripts or original art pieces being destroyed is migraine inducing! :eek:
Do you have any contingency plans for your collectibles? Do you maintain a master list of everything and make sure a hard-copy will be found? Have you made arrangements already with a family member or friend? Provisions made for them in your will?
