No where near but exactly.  I would say nice win (and I am envious) but I am not yet convinced the price is going to stay up there.  $500 makes it a pretty serious collectible which was undoubtably obtained through Acaeum hype.

So I will ask again:



Did anyone ever confirm exactly what printing this was?




** expired/removed eBay auction **




I asked the seller this morning and he responded by saying he didn't know and asked me how he could tell.  In that condition, I hope for the winning bidders sake that they did in fact confirm it was a 1st printing.  :?

Howdy Brian,


It is the later version of the 1st print with the variant cover volume 3 with the art prints listed.

I doubt whether this mythical "Double extra super special extra-cool 1st print", without art prints exists?  Has anyone got one?  :D

I might add that this went for higher than I thought considering the grim condition and the fact that it has no ref sheets (try picking those up). Compare recently that lovely copy with the sales receipt.

I'm going to have to disagree with you on these ones Aia.  After reading the description I have no idea what condition they are in.  Take Wrath for example:



"A Box set that's seen it's fair share of adventure. Box and contents will be worn, but complete. Box may have a split corner or two, along with edgewear and indentions. Contents may have creases, small tears, and staining. If set came with dice the dice are included, but they may not be the original dice."



Whenever a seller says it may have I think the general assumption ishould be that it does have.  So this set may have:



1)  box with split corners, edgewear and indentations

2)  contents with creases, small tears and staining

3)  non original dice



All for the low price of $37.52 and for those of us in Canada it only cost $27.70 to ship.  No offence to Troll and Toad and they can run their business the way they want to but perhaps they are trying to be bigger than they can handle when their descriptions all seem to be it may have this or might have that.  Know if the corners on a box set are split or not is a pretty big selling point in my mind.  Why don't they just say something like "the item may be in mint condition or it may have previously lined a bird cage"?

That's odd.  I remove that exact suit only when I'm in Vegas.


Let mirth prevail!

I love this quote from the ad:



This zentai suit is always in fashion and brings your body with special care in every second, so you cannot go wrong with this.



Any idea what this might mean?

First you must buy the suit and wear it. All day long. Only then will you understand true meaning.
