I'm not really sure how to grade that copy...do we have a "Very Bizarre" category?

Sounds like Pac-Man may be a more active relative of the feared Tarasque.  :wink:

Well if eating the module qualifies you  that you have Best of Intentions, well then, yes he sure does.  :D

Hey, this Pac-monster sure is dangerous. It's on the same level of the purple worm, but yellow... maybe it's just a fat and short mutation of the purple worm  :lol:

Ah, yes, that would make a lot more sense.  The lack of large pincers really threw me off. :?

Check out the condition of the WG5 in this auction:  8O



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0&rd=1



I think this one falls in the grading list immediately under poor. :wink:

Anyone who really wants to laugh, check out this auction:



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 9&rd=1



The auction itself is not what is funny, but look at the seller/buyer question/answer at the bottom of the listing.  Looks like some kitty taming to me.  :lol:

Pretty funny! (didn't know kitty knew the 'magic word')



But why would anyone NOT allow bidders from overseas? As long as they paid for the shipping, I can't figure the exclusion. Is there some big ordeal about customs or something I am missing?


Scouts out!

Can understand why a seller with a generous refunds policy might not wish to consider selling overseas, or various other possible reasons.

Hey, Cav, this is one of those eBay questions that gets a fair amount of discussion, with people coming down on both sides of the issue. Here on The Acaeum, there's been some good discussions, including this one:



International sales



Personally, I've had some bad experiences with pushy international bidders; others on this site, though, have reported no problems at all. As always with anything related to eBay, YMMV.
