    I'm not taking it seriously, just making a statement. Is that okay?

    A wedding cake topper is usually kept for the rest of the happy couple's lives as a memento of their special day, especially something like this which was made with a lot of meaning for them. Its a very loving thing to be giving up something which means so much to them to help their dying friend and that sacrifice, that gift, should respected, no matter what you think of the item itself. I would bid on it if I only had the money.

    Wait a tick. Aren't those just those Takara blind packed mini PVC statue things they had a few years ago?

    Arcee & Hot Rod

    They are just HOC figures with the guns gone and wedding attire hotglued to them and then posed and attached to a platform for the cake. they are not "custom" made so much as they are a arts and crafts project...

    Exactly, you are 100% correct, but they could be considered "customized"

    I thought they looked like the PVCs, too. That would answer why it's not Springer--Takara never made a Springer PVC.

    I have to agree with Neuco on this. The cause is worthy, but I'd rather give the money and they can keep the "custom". It's just two PVC Hasbro/Takara Tf's with cardboard bow-ties super-glued to some flowery thing. Nice as a homemade effort or as a gift, but hardly worth money.

    Still, DONATE away, regardless people! It's going to a good cause!

    That's a cute cake topper. And I'm getting married in two weeks. Too bad I'm too broke at this point to win an auction (plus I'm not sure all my guests would apreciate such a topper.)

    The very existence of this item, custom or not, shows how very far we've dropped as a society. I weep for western civilization.

    You mean a couple auctioning off a personal collectors item to rise money for a friends cancer treatment?
    Yeah I know, what the hell has humanity come to?
