Most of the minis inside the blurry picture appear to be Greandier AD&D Gold Box minis from the Adventurers and Orcs boxed sets.  Alone they are not worth the final bid price, but they're still nice to have; one can never have enough Grenadier AD&D Gold Box minis.   :D
The box looks like something the RPGA might have come out with back in the day but I don't have my old Polyhedrons handy to check so I took a chance with a somewhat tepid bid.  Perhaps Frank Mentzer would know... I was kind of relieved to be outbid in the end as the more I look at it, either it's just an RPGA sticker attached to a generic minis foam box, or it's a genuine RPGA product that's really kind of lame.  The RPGA slipcases are much nicer.   :wink:

The super-rare RPGA figure set...this set is open, and the box damaged, so it might actually go for a reasonable price.  Most people don't realize what this is or how hard it is to find:

Burnie effect indeed!  Last time I put this module up, it only went for $20.  His went for like $80.  Now I can't even break $10?!?!

You'll break $20 now...I just put a bid in.  :P  I'm still chuffed (as our UK friends would say) that Ian got one of my copies for $25  :)  I'd buy up as many as I could get for $20-$30.

Wait, never mind, "Chuffed" means pleasantly surprised right?  I'll stick to the American idiom and say I was pissed.  :evil:

Hey, you guys had your shot at contributing the language of empire a couple of centuries ago.  Now it's our turn.

over here pissed means drunk.

e.g. "last night I went to the pub with a mate. I was really only going to stay for a few drinks, but in the end we stayed until closing and I got completely pissed.  My girlfriend was raging when I eventually crawled home."    

:D

Have you seen that hilarious piece by John Cleese, a declaration of revocation?  Absolutely hilarious.  I like this line:

You will learn that the suffix 'burgh' is pronounced 'burra' e.g. Edinburgh. You are welcome to re-spell Pittsburgh as 'Pittsberg' if you can't cope with correct pronunciation.

Just over a day left on both.

Certainly not seen two first-prints up before. (Definitely rarity "5"s, IMHO).

Not too bad at those final prices ($81, $107), although having the same pic for both (with small faults) probably helped ensure that they didn't go any higher.
Interesting "remainder stock" that seller had/has.
