And every single auction title is the same :!:



I'm willing to give eBay n00bs a certain level of leeway, but ... c'mon ... exactly what strategy is in play here? Either I'm missing something, or this guy doesn't have all the spots on his dice ... :?

Is it just the angle or my ageing eyes, or does the front label on this 3rd print woody look larger than what you usually see?

You see correctly. The label on my third is bigger than the label on my first. I wondered about it myself, as maybe a possible way to distinguish boxes. The side label also appears on different sides. On the 1st Woody the label on the right, while the 3rd has the label on the left. I don't know about second print.

Seriously, what am I missing here?  Someone expecting to break this up and average $10-12 per module in resales?

Crap.  It has the UK mono D3 I'm hunting for, but I'm not bidding anywhere near that much for it.   :evil:

Its not too crazy yet, at about $4.75 per item before shipping.  Tha being said though there a lot of Role-Aids modules in there that usually dont go for sh*t, that causes the real problem there. Just my $.02

If I were buying big lots at the moment, I might throw $850-900 at it . . .  However, that's an awful lot to chance on it.  You should make out good if most items are in excellent condition like the seller states . . . in the end, I'd probably chicken out - there's just too much that can go wrong for that price.

Also interesting to note that this U.S.-only auction currently has a high bidder who doubles as a famous UK feline. I'm guessing that the seller got a "I'm an Aluminum-Sided, Ruby-Encrusted Power Seller" letter ... :roll:



I'm with BTB, though ... so much could go wrong here ...

Looks like this guy is back again, with two more WG4s mint-on-card, after selling the two I listed earlier...



eBay listings



Maybe he has a case of them? That might affect the rarity a bit, exspecially if it was a Toys-R-Us case and not a standard TSR module case...

And another, same dealer?

Did he accidentally double list or does he have two?



Am I missing out on a great deal by passing it on, or is that price high? I'm broke, anyway... :(

Hmm, I know that seller.  She had 8 of them originally.  She agreed to sell them to me all 8 of them for $20.00 apiece, but then she jerked me around. :x   I am assuming that the 2 new ones are probably her last 2, if I counted correctly.

She just put up a third that I bought for the hell of it.

Well, checking through her feedback I was able to count 3 other and including the 5 that she has sold today would make 8, but I am positve either Mishra aka Marlith here or addermcone won her first auction and I am not seeing any feedback from either one of them. That could either mean that they havent received it yet, haven't left feedback yet, so maybe the deal fell through. :?

Here is a Lankhmar Game from 1976 with a $30.00 BIN:

Box is rough, but seller claims pieces are 100% there and in excellent condition. MIght be worth a query to ascertain if 100% actually equals 100%. :wink:



<edit> Same seller actually has Awful Green Things form Outer Space with a $45.00 BIN. This is also claimed to be 100% complete:

I got mine. I am just terrible for feedback sometimes.





In the original auction they had one listed but they had eight and you could buy one or all. They had made arrangments with someone else here to sell them eight but I messed that up (unintentionally) when I bid on the auction. She was going to sell all eight at $20 each I guess. I ended paying $31 grrr....  At the end of the auction I had ask them about the other seven and they said they had all of them allocated at the price I paid. Then low and behold they all come up for auction and someone bought some and then yet more came up for auction. Then a few days ago they send me an email telling me they found more and I could buy them for either $21 or $25 or something like that. I never replied because the entire series of events left me feeling like something shady had just occurred.

Neat!

I personally don't like the "look" of these books, but works much better in that language (IMHO) :)
