Wow, no kidding!  She should be a payphone.  Before seeing this, if I had seen her at a yard sale, I would have passed.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Amazing! Will wonders never cease?

Started at $10 and attracted 6 "serious" bidders over 10 days with a last second first time bid snipe by s***l ( 11943). Must have really been a "rare" collectible. Something else to look for at this summer's flea markets and garaged sales.

I'm baffled as to how you would pick the handset up without banging it on Wonder Woman and toppling her from her plinth?

Maybe thats why its so expensive!

Wonder woman and  superman (same base). were unlicensed phones. The company got shut down so they are only a few of them out there. There may of been another character as well.
They used to bring around $1000 among collectors.

Other high $ novelty phones are the other superman phone, Pink Panther driving a car and the original dough boy telephone.
