I seem to recall a very negative experience with them, but I am not 100% sure.

I missed that. So they have no real stock.

Evidently, they visit Acaeum, though perhaps not the forums section:

trollandtoad.com/p133808.html?PHPSESSID ... 7cb40bf2f2
How else would they have come up with the "3rd print beta" terminology? :)  And yes, those prices are ridiculous.

At the auction they were bidding real high on some of the rares, hard to believe there is any room for mark-up.  I think they went $240.00 for shrink R2 with is above retail.

The thing i hate most about moronic numbnuts like them, Titan games, Creep, etc, is that if they bought out my entire stock, they would STILL have plenty of room to mark it up to heaven and make a huge profit.  Same with Guido, BTB, BClarkie, etc, we have have room for massive markup.  But mostly my stuff, since I wouldn't mind selling it all and having some moronic numbnuts double the price on it and then sit on it for a year or so...... :)  Plus, I need the  bread.

which is why, as often as poss, i would like to see the valuations page as up to date, so that we/you can be aware of the current state of affairs so to speak, so more ppl than ever are aware of ppl like that who are just looking to capitalise on the unwary.

sure ppl can make $$$ but its to what degree you do so that will annoy the hell out of everyone else around you (prb not that you would really care mind)

I've gotten burned by them twice.  They give very detailed descriptions to back up their claims on printings, versions, etc., but what I received IN BOTH CASES was not what was described.  They offered a refund in one case, which I took them up on.  I think it was a falsely advertised 1st PHB that turned out to be a 6th print.  I'd steer clear.

Those dealers are going to give the collectable RPG industry a bad name, they may make some dough in the early stages but will be shut out when ever anybody gets serious about collecting stuff.

They're doing just fine, unfortunately. Doing better than most of us honest sellers to boot.

well whatever. its more than money for me tho. i like ppl to be genuinely happy dealing with me and i feel far better for it.

that means just as much as it does making an honest cut out of something too.

for the peeps that dont think that, then well fine. :D

Actually that is older. That was creep1962-is-retarded, that went after everyone back in early October. That auction if you look ended back on October 3. :)

This thread needed a bump anyway, and I hate to call out someone who is/was a member of the forum, but I am calling it how I see it. :x

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8700187134

http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... =tim662002

Seems like poor a2jeff got f*cked out of his Tsojconth win. It also appears that his porked someone else as well and looking at the fact that tauglomorigous never left feedback for him as well I would also have to assume that he never shipped him the RPGA modules either. :evil: I am sorry, but that is f*ckin bullsh*t.  :evil:  That is at least 2 members that he has screwed over now. What a jack-off. :evil:  :evil:  :evil:
