Shadow Elves $66:

UK2 $23:

Perhaps it is that people are prepared to fork out high prices for SW. Incidentally, this Seller has an amazing diversity of products NM(SW). Anyone know the Seller or the source?






Isn't Hamilcar a member here?  I believe he has not posted since right after he joined, but I think he is on the membership list.

He's been selling on ebay for a long time.  I think his store was called "flying tiger games".

He's a straight up seller, no problems and items were always exactly as he described.

Only £20 for a basic set - I almost couldn't resist (though it does seem to have the start of someones dungeon with it - I love that stuff!)


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

LOL...I know Dungeon's going OOP, and these early issues are less common, but you'd think these were the last copies in the world the way people were bidding them up:



#2 for $92:  
** expired eBay auction **




#3 for $103.73!:  
** expired eBay auction **




And yet 4/5/6, which I'm pretty sure are just as rare, "only" went for about $20 each.

Check out the two highest bidders....neither one of them have been on Ebay longer than six months and neither of them have a feedback score over 10.  Noob stupidity if there ever was a case of it.  :?

Not only is this seller an idiot but he's a crook as well.  I put my 2 cents worth about him a while back in the shady seller thread.

Not so much for the price, which may be ok depending on the shape of U2/U3, but check out his shipping and better still, his combined shipping policy in his item description.

That guy is an asshat, better known as "Fakes Man".  Coincidentally he has yet another Condo of Dr. Demento up.




** expired eBay auction **




Anyone else now doubt that he selling fakes of those too?  If he was the last seller on Ebay, I'd do without.

I don't think thats that bad.  :)  On the other hand look at this one:




** expired eBay auction **




Now the fact that its that high is bad enough, however the current high bidder is that POS seller Senorcoo.  :roll:   Yeah, I can see him being able to make money on that one.  I can see it now though $295 starting price and $300 BIN on Ebay as soon as he receives it. :roll:

I believe that this particular seller is also the source for the counterfeit Compleat Tavern publications.

For that kind of shipping, he's sending the modules Fed-Ex overnight, right?

Over 30 bucks shipping for a game worth perhaps $15-20 at the most.



I have seen this same game go for less than $15 and that one had a better condition box.
