Yeah, the (presumed) fake CAs did, too... Thought those looked like the "2nd print" cover, rather than just cheap photocopies ^^

the pegasus #5 looks fine. looks as tho its just a crap pic.

i just wonder tho about some of the other things which really ARE so hard to find, never mind one person selling who has MORE than one and sells them at the same time (ie. CA)....

anyway what do i know :)

shane, did you find anything out about them #66?

If you look at both Bio One pics, they both have a spot on the upper right portion. So the auction pics are identical.
Comparing the Peg pics, the only color difference is that the blue in the seller's picture is greenish.

Seeing as BC bought one, shall wait and see what he has to say. There is only one type of shrink they used it seems so should not be to hard to figure out if real or not.

I wouldn't worry so much about the Bio Ones.  I reckon the price will be down again (hopes) in a month or so.  And these two looked heavy on the staple rust.  The one up before them looked to be the best of recent ones. (points to other thread).

Ok Bclarkie...  I got beat by mere seconds on this BIN, and just knew it was you or another regular face around here that beat me.  Looks like we got more competition at the quick draw BIN's.

That would be me.... sorry.

That was the Gods making up to me after not getting something I watched for 6 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 30 seconds.... only to watch someone out bid my snipe. THEY OWED ME!!!!

Now back to our regular scheduled sanity.

I actuallly have backed of buying quite a bit over the last month or so, trying to pay down the old CC bill now, so I have not been nearly as active "bargain BIN" hunting as much as I had been. :wink:  I magine that I have missed quite a bit over the last several weeks. :(  Oh well, congrats on the the nice win Z.

OK, I know that you lot have all bought multiples of these at $10.00 on ebay before - but that price seems (oddly) unavailable to me.  Nevertheless, I thought I might be on to a winner with this super shiny still shrinkwrapped, untouched by oily gamer-hands one...  

but, then again, maybe NOT

aaaaarrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!  (shakes fist at sky)


        you know - I don't think I want one anyway.  :x

mine cost £3 in a charity shop! - The following week I BINed one for $20AU inc shipping. (A good week as the Australian one was still in the shrink and I offloaded it straight away for £50!)
I actually really like the product - its really user friendly and still cheaper than buying the early mags (later ones are basically landfill fodder I'm afraid - unless anyone wants to make me an offer on about 200 random, multiple issues between issues 130 and 250!!!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I paid the retail price plus the shipping cost way back, when the product was released. It wouldn't be easily found in Italy, so (like the Core Rules/Expansion and the Atlas) I had to purchase it on the Internet.

Thanks,
I must say these will be the crowning jewel of my collection ( even above my  woodies or tourney mods ).  I just thought were very cool because they are the "momma & papas " of dragon dice and will look good between the woodies when I get them displayed.

I actually felt I got really lucky ( IMHO ) on the price that I won them at ( sorry Stephen ) I'm almost embarrassed to even say what my snipe was set at but it was more than triple what I paid :oops: . I'll be heading out today to get some mahogany to make a nice display case for them ( although purple heart may win out ).

Nice win!  if you really want something (confining my ramblings here to D&D collecting) that bad - and you manage to get it on ebay - then that is fab.  Oh, I like the idea of a custom display case.  :)

Yes, nice win there.  Just be sure you display them out of direct sunlight; one of those sets looks susceptible to melting!   :lol:

Lol, I hear ya. Had to put the verbal hurting on my buddy when he asked the question " are we going to use them ?"  :!:  :!:  I guess he's used to me running rares out of my collection but a few "f-bombs" in my short reply quelled that thought  :D

Well, thanks to my lovely wife unplugging our wireless router for "just a minute" I missed out on these:

Interesting! Now I know the second one to look for.

You told me you had the first though, Allan; hence the previous copy ending up with Brian instead. What's up with that?

I frickin' hate when stuff like that happens.  I was playing a computer game one night and momentarily forgot how to tell time.  I quit my game so I could put a last second bid on this sucker:
A Song of Ice and Fire RPG | eBay
Found out I was 3 minutes late.  I was super-duper pissed for a couple of minutes.  So I just picked up this one instead:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1
Had to pay about $20 more for it, but at least I dont have to make Badmike cringe when I told him I took it out of the shrink.  :D
