Certainly no mispelled Tsoconth for 20 bucks but I've wanted one of these in shrink for quite some time now. I missed this one by minutes! Oh well i got Set 2 at least which helps make up for the one I got off Zenfinite!  :lol: No, i'm only kidding, I thought that was a very fair price too.

Hopefully someone from The Acaeum snagged this:


** expired eBay auction **


It lasted less than a minute at that price.  It's incomplete, but extremely rare (missing page 5/6).  Also autographed by the author.  What do you think of the BIN price?  I think it probably could have gone for more, if it was a normal auction.

I think that probably would have wnet for double that if left to auction even in that ass shape

He has the other one as well

$350 as well.  I saw it before someone bid, but didn't hit the BIN because no interior pages are shown in the pictures.

is that price point fair for this item/condition?

i'm interested in all the toys/oddball items licensed by TSR back in the day, but it's hard to know what type of prices to consider

Personally, I think these should be in the $50 range for an open one.  In shrink I have seem several of them sell in the $75-$125 range but also a number at much less.

They aren't particularly rare but are uncommon (one will show up every couple of months).  The best part of this item is the box itself - the contents are about the quality of items bought from the dollar store.

thanks. i thought it was little pricey. i bid on it, too much  :roll: and glad i didn't win it. seller said the winning bid couldn't pay for 2 weeks and would sell it to me for my last bid. i was like...uh, i'll pass. lol.

this is the first one i've ever seen up for sale, but i think my searches are limited to the USA.

thanks for the input MARS

Really?  What's the significance of the small white sticker?  I've bought these for $40 or so at least four times sans the sticker.

Equivalent to the gamma world bundle?

The white sticker say "TS Bonus Pack" which means it was bundled with a bunch of the other TS supplements and sold at a discounted price (similar to the combo packs):   10th Anniversary

Also, means it is very rare.

I've never seen a 10th anniversary set like that. Where is the bundle or was it removed? Generally if the bundle was disassembled they are no different than regular copies.

Mark wasn't stating that it is a 10th anniversary pack, he was stating that it was similar to a 10th anniv. pack in that multiple items were being bundled to sell off excess items rather than watch them linger in the warehouse. If I may be so bold as to reply in Mark's absence...

Right, I didn't mean it was one of THE 10th anniversary sets I was just wondering what the box set was bundled with but maybe they put everything in the box.

It would be interesting to know what was in that box.  It certainly had the space to contain additional items.  Unlikely that the purchaser would open it to find out though.  Has anyone ever seen what was in this bundle?  I haven't seen this particular one before.  Nice to see something new.

My guess is the bundle might contain the following:

$15.00  TSR - TOP SECRET S.I. (1987)
$5.95    TS1 - Operation: Starfire (1987)
$5.95    TS2 - The Doomsday Drop (1988)
$5.95    TS3 - Orion Rising (1988)
$9.95    TSAC3 - Covert Operations Sourcebook (1988)

$42.80  Total?

I was thinking the winning bidder could weight the box and then we could figure out the combination of modules that weighed the same.

Also, did they do this with anything else?  Not looking to leg up, truly curious - what other anomaly bundles are out there?

FYI: bidnip.com's sniping is currently failing.  Other sniping services may be having issues too - you may want to check.


If someone here won that Stormbringer auction I wanted... I would have crushed that selling price.  ***grrrrrrrrrr***
