Congrats, Steven, on the Character Archaic.  Looks like a really nice copy!   :D


** expired/removed eBay auction **


Be sure to let us know what the seller meant by this copy not matching the descriptions of any of the printings listed here.  Might be very interesting...

Thanks Stephen - I think I saw you appear on on the list, apologies if we went head to head.  :cry:

I had a look at this thread earlier on

The Character Archaic Print Sequence • Collecting General - Non TSR •  The Acaeum

...and there seems to be quite a variation on what was printed and when.  To be honest, it is a wee bit of a gamble, not sure exactly which version it might be.  But, I do love that early stuff.  :D

Perhaps I could buy you a beer or two in a Danish bar to make amends  :D

Congrats on the CA win, as Stephen says it looks like a nice copy.  I flogged a bid in but alas.

I forgot to bid (well, I was going to bid, but I wasn't at home when it ended, like I thought I would be) on a lot of Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness and the Warhammer 1st edition hardcover. It went for $1 more than half what I paid for the RoC book alone. :( Oh well, good win for the lucky person.

I had that in my watch list and was going to buy it if I got outbid on an auction I was bidding on.  I did get outbid but alas...I waited too long.  :cry:  :wink:


Thanks, KoP :D  If you're still looking for another folio, I may have a spare....

Thanks for the offer Gro, but I managed to pick up a pretty nice one this past Saturday for the same price from Badmike.  My original is shall we say...rogered beyond repair.  :wink:

Finally spot a copy of Mythus Prime on eBay, and who should outbid me at the last moment but waynes_world_of_books.  I give it a month before it shows up at some horribly inflated price in his abebooks shop. :roll:

This constantly getting outbid at the last moment by him is really starting to get on my nerves though. :evil:  (Though I am curious as to why his eBay feedback is now private.)

I was happy I got all the Mythus stuff... And then I found out that Necropolis had a map in it and mine didn't have it... Then I found out there was a presentation set as well... Anyone khow how many of the Presentation Sets there were??

By presentation set do you mean the set that came with a slip case to store them all in or something else?  No idea on number though.

Here, I will help this thread along:

Nice win Gro on this 5th print set with some extras. Granted the box is a bit rough, but still not bad all in all. :)

So, I've been trying to obtain a TSR Silver Collector's box for a little while now, but it's been fairly dry lately. All of the sudden, this week, 4 come up for offer.

The first 2 quickly go up to $100 and I move on.

The third sits nicely at $60 until about 45mins to go, but I have to go run errands, so I throw in my $105 bid and go do my errands. I get sniped by a guy who does a $103 with about a minute to go and sees I'm only $2 above him instead of $2.50, so he throws in 107.50 at the last second.

Sunday was a busy day, so I completely forgot about the 4th one. It went for $71.00. *sigh*
