Yeah...this one is a bit suprising, especially since I've got 3 bidders over $45!  8O Plus within about 24 hours of listing it...it was already up to $40! Go figure! Oh...and here's the lot where they came from... :D

Nice :)



Good to see since your Dark Tower went for less then the one that came right after.

Well....that DT was not in the best condition to be sure. A few weeks ago I had an I13 sell for about $8, while it was sandwiched between 2 others which went for over $30 each! (one was BC's if I remember). THat one was much more painful.  :cry:

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Did I...did I miss something here?

My favorite part is that the winning bidder topped himself to make sure he didn't get outbid again.  :lol:

We must all be missing something.  I wouldn't give $20 for the whole bunch.  Weird.

Okay, I can't help but ask, but what exactly is a "potato wedger"? - bclarkie

Maybe the Wintercon module was worth 90% of the price?



On Mar-26-07 at 16:16:22 PDT, seller added the following information:
This item does not have the Wintercon Tournement Module it is a misprint.
Only World of Grayhawk

Castles is not even complete.  These 3-D building sets TSR put out are kind of neat but once they are used they are somewhat valueless.




Complete sets have sold for upwards of $70 recently. Granted the pics a little off though. I figured someone overseas might need it. Besides, I haven't seen them listed very often.

:wink:

8O  Seems more like a bidding 'pride' war than a reflection of the true value of the item!  :)

Perhaps you should write underneath your auction: "Notice to bidders: just remember, you are the greatest, don't let any loser outbid you, otherwise you'll be a big loser yourself."

Here is an X13 for just UNDER $50.00 with only 7 hours to go 8O  Maybe we might get lucky and win it for less than $60.00 w/ S&H :roll:


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

That's a nice idea, but perhaps they could feel being insulted and so they could not bid  :P  Anyay, I'm sure this price puts to shame most of the items listed in this thread  :wink:

OK...I was ready to post this one when it was at only $500...but this is completely out of hand! I know it's a good size lot, but I don't see anything here that begins to justify this price...plus with shipping over $100, the total cost is over $1000!!?? Geesh.... 8O

I tried to do a quick calculation based on what I sell these items in my store.  Assuming there are no major problems and pretty much everything is in tip top shape I couldn't even get over $800.  Maybe there is something in there we don't know about like the miniatures.  If you look at the 1st photo you can just make out 3 boxes of miniatures and if I didn't know better the bottom 2 minis boxes are Heritage miniatures.  That could bump up the lot by some.  Still, as described and what the pictures show I would not bid even $300 for this lot for re-sell purposes.  Wow is right 8O

Only 3 bidders. I'm pretty sure who number 3 is. Number 1 and 2 have fairly low feedback, so maybe a newbie bidding war??

I am sure the Seller is pretty happy with that outcome! I agree that is really over the top! 8O
