    What ever happened to Virginia Brooks?

    I was tooling around the archive and came across this stuff again, which I had forgotten about. What ever happened to that flake?

    I thought she sold all those rare 1 of a kind unpainted production micro figures for $3,000,000. I hear she bought a mansion near the Skywalker Ranch [IMG]images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG]

    She moved in with me and I helped her sell her micros for a few million. Now were just sitting back living the good life.

    I've read those several times. Very interesting stuff. If she did show up again. It'd be funny to ask her if she wanted to trade some unpainted micros or maybe just send her a couple.

    I was actually asking about the same thing a few months ago. I had never read the story and came across it, and it was an interesting read. I beleive it was Chris G. I asked about it and from what I gather she "went away" for now.

    One reason that story in the Archive is so long is because she was so insistet at the time. Nothing anybody ever said was going to change her mind. One person (not a collector) told her the stuff was worth thousands and that was it. Actually we ended up meeting that guy several times face to face. :^)

    She kept saying that she was going to take us all to court, but that never happened. Apparently she had lawyers working on it and at one point they told her to put the things on ebay to see what the value was.

    She faded away probably 2 years ago. I forget the last time anything was mentioned. But she did that once before and came back so you never know what the future holds.

    Unfortunately, no matter what's said I think she would never be fully convinced that we were right all along. :^)

    She's probably still bitter over her lost millions, blaming the all-powerful archive editors for conspiring to set artificially low market prices and steal her treasures away from her.

    Poor dear.
