    Erich, I am sure you could get a lot of help from local collectors if you asked for help on setting them all up for photo.....total army-building craziness

    My apologies if your funding has already been explained - I haven't been here since the inception.
    It's worth a read! I believe he said he was going to spend $3,000,000+.

    200,000 serpents at $25 each is $5,000,000. The average price was way more than $25 each for a while, maybe up to $35?

    Now it's settled back down to the low $20s.

    For which professional sports team does he play?

    I realize folks can make much more than I however I don't believe they would be that frivolous with their earnings.

    God bless him if he can do it though.

    It's all in the thread my friend. He's a casino executive.

    Casino executive... There has to be some influence and connections with that job. He could "easily" set up a massive diorama. I bet people would come from as far away as California as an "event" heck you could even charge people to come out and play. Get a celebrity guest. Have a banquet. Set it up in a Vegas soundstage, fake snow, the works. Make it a Snow Serpent celebration. People could bring their own Snow Wolfs too. It could possibly be the largest GIJOE diorama ever.
    Vegas has long been one of the top requests for a con. Capitalize on that. You would not even need that many people to show up, it would be an all day event with a reveal the following day.

    Ha-ha, I would even consider travelling from Denmark to such a gigant Snow Serpent Convention *lol*

    Aha! Well, there you go - it pays to get the whole story - whether by reading it in its entirety or getting the paraphrased version.

    Thank you for setting me straight.

    You must have the most awesome wife in the world.

    I wonder what that conversation was like.

    "I think I'm gonna buy 200,000 Snow Serpents."

    "That's nice, dear."

    I didn't read every page of this thread but what if the end game is for one person to get as many SS as possible and then do something drastic like DESTOY 90% of what he has collected and put it on YOUTUBE. The Remaining stock would cause $$ to go way up, right? I know it sounds insane and I would never do it but it is a possibility.
