To be honest, I didn’t even know they existed until after finding them in the box. Made my day. Floppy disk! How times have changed. Our first computer as a kid had dual 5.25 floppy disk drives. Now this little resin lizard is an icon of things past!

I think the door raft was a promo.

The original photo is on floppy disk. The raft is with my Pirate sets at the store or I would take a snap shot with the phone.

I purchased my first Hirst Arts molds to augment my lake and river sets.

Yes Promo piece as has been said, but I will also add that you only got the promo if you pre-ordered three sets (and you got one for each set pre-ordered).
That was so long ago, I thought they were three per set.

I have also wanted one for years, but nowhere near $100 worth. The ones in KSVI are a nice substitute.

I saw them in the photo and wondered if the seller knew what they were. I placed a bid early... but I was doing real life and didn't get to bid again before it ended. :-(

Congrats! That is a fortunate purchase!

There is someone that pops up every couple of months asking 95.00 each for them on ebay. They would have a better chance of selling them if they had a decent photo and described it properly.

edit: And yes, they were the promo piece for pre-ordering the lake sets.

Yes, there were 3 of them, I’m guessing it was a preorder bonus, is that right? I don’t know if the original eBay seller knew about them, they certainly didn’t advertise it!

That is an awesome surprise. I bet those sell for a bundle individually.

I am so glad I am getting a pair of the newer interation of those in KSVI.
