Have to agree on the looks of the frog
I got lucky and found a toady for $25
I fear the topper will costs me more than the lamp.!
However, I only paid $40 for the peace sign topper? so I may get lucky
I paid $200 for my Toady Icon about 5 years ago and it came with it's box.
Icons are selling for much less now.
I wish I would have waited a few years before I started collecting them however I may not have found them all if I had ;)
The toppers are indeed quite difficult to find. I actually purchased an entire lamp off Craigslist just to get the mushroom topper. It was a regular green/clear midnight with the topper on it. It had a small crack that I was able to glue back into place because they are not actually ceramic, but a semi-flexible plastic or resin. Either way, I couldn't resist for 10 bucks.
Some people just don't know the value of what they are selling
I haven't been on in a while. My girlfriend is offering to buy a lamp for my birthday this week. I am not really sure what I want exactly, but I can say I've always wanted a Toadie or other icon lamp. Like you I cringe at the eBay prices.. and have never seen one good for cheap on the other sale sites near me. I am willing to pay someone a modest price for a good lamp, not necessary an icon. Thinking about making my own post but I like your pictures!! Hehe.
Would anyone like to be so kind as to sell me a gem? Thanks in advance.
