Up on the auction block for one day only is this super rare Pac-Man Toenail Action Set! In March of 2002, Digital Press sponsored an eBay joke auction contest, back before eBay itself became a joke, and I entered it myself. One of the other listings was for a Pac-Man Toenail Action Set, wherein some guy clipped his toenails and glued some Pac-Man accessories to the trimmings, rather than typically discarding them. Astoundingly, this auction got multiple bids. But I won it, actually paid for it (less than a dollar as I recall), and he actually shipped it. I still have it to this day, but for one day only you have a chance to own it yourself!
The first photo shows the outer packaging, a small two-piece box measuring 3.25" x 2.25", with black letters stating "Pac Man Toe Nail Action Set!" and "Super Rare!" so you know it is true. The second photo shows the contents, some cotton padding and the toenail action figures themselves. There's regular Pac-Man, clipped from the big toe, with a single eye, even though he doesn't actually have one in the video game itself. Junior Pac-Man is there with his little beanie hat. And there's Baby Pac from the pinkie toe, with a white baby bonnet. Ms Pac-Man is included too, but at some point her trademark bow became separated from her toenail Pac-body. Both pieces are still included though, and this is the only defect in this otherwise pristine collection.
I can almost guarantee you will never find another one of these anywhere unless you get really bored one day and decide to make your own. Bid now and bid high, as this item is available for one day only!
This item's condition is [VG] by Mobyscale standards.

Thanks for visiting!
Questions and Answers:
|Tempted. Is there a certificate of authenticity available?
|Unfortunately the original clipper of the toenails declined to provide one, and I did not think to ask. I could always write up a certificate myself, but if you cannot already trust the excellent penmanship on the box, I'm not sure it would help. Of course a guaranteed method would be a DNA test, but those are pretty expensive.
