Jamie Moakes is a man on a mission. He has set himself upon a Quixotic quest to obtain as many Ram-Man action figures as his bank roll will allow, thus cornering the market on the figure and driving up their value to insane numbers. His tongue in cheek crusade titled “You Will Be Rare” follows his journey, and his blog tells the story behind each Ram-Man that he adds to his collection.
As a collector, I’m intrigued at the thought of whether it would be possible to affect the cost of a collectible by buying up as many as you can. If it was, me, I’d buy up as many Aurora King Kong models as I could find (I love those guys!). Waitaminit, wasn’t this the plot for Trading Places?
To support the ongoing project costs Jamie will be cycling to Edinburgh from Colchester. He is inviting those who wish to sponsor him to contact him via jamiemoakes.com and help him become master of his own financial universe.
Jamie, I salute you as you tilt at those windmills!
