Now that you guys are mentioning it. I think I have seen one of those too. I heard some good folks call it a speed demon. It was well used and looked pretty rusty. :D   Adam

Yup, that's the guy.    I shot the pix and slaped em up, so it's nothin' special. Here they are: the rest Yahoo! GeoCities: Get a web site with easy-to-use site building tools. umber-hulk-type-guy and rust monster Yahoo! GeoCities: Get a web site with easy-to-use site building tools. bullettes & others  Yahoo! GeoCities: Get a web site with easy-to-use site building tools.  I know the collection is two complete bags -  I lost none over the years.  I think I got two bags worth because I have doubles of most. (not pictured)


There is no edition but first.

Nice pictures Jacobite. Cool items. Are they licensed by Tsr or are they bootlegs, etc???  Oh I have a unusual item to share. I saw a Tsr Halloween Skeleton of Sith costume and mask on ebay. It looked pretty neat. I'll post a link soon.

Hey guys here is the link to the Tsr Halloween costume:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 50369&rd=1  Also here are some Tsr cartoon story books or something like that made in Holland. They look pretty cool, but the seller was in the Netherlands. Shipping would have been pretty expensive:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 00428&rd=1  Anyone else besides myself think that merchandise like the two items above are pretty neat?

Jacobite,  The oriiginals of those toys pre-date the rust monster, bullette, and others and were in fact the inspiration (for the art, at least) for those critters. You could buy them as I think you still can -- in mixed bags of plastic monsters. We used to use them as miniatures in the game.  David "Zeb" Cook  PS. Hello all, interesting forum.

Zeb or Jacobite, if you can, what company made these? Also is there a copyright date? Are they out of print or still in print. Your post Zeb made it seem like you can still buy these?  Can you show originals that pre date the bulette, etc? I'm curious what they look like.

Sorry, the only notation on any of them is   MADE IN  HONG KONG  Although I think I bought them in the U.P. of Michigan in the early 80s.  Hey, Mr. Cook - love your old work/fantastic stuff/blah blah blah...

Wow!  D&D cereal! :lol:   http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... gory=10788  Obviously the price is baloney but who knew? BTW, I still have yet to see a D&D lunchbox. :)   Adam

HOLY **** I thought I had heard/seen it all! Ridiculous price on that or that would be in my collection already!  Now I wonder if D&D condoms exist? If it does, that would be the most unusual and weirdest item of all! Hey if Star Wars condoms exists, D&D condoms must too so I'll keep looking! 8)

Here is another unusual item...  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... egory=1183  Again, the price is baloney but it sure is cool. TSR was such a high class company to give out paperweights to its employees for an anniversary :lol: . I was high bidder on one of these a couple of years back (like $25) and the seller disappeared after the auction so I never got it :cry: .  Adam

Well, just to keep this thread from dying....  I dug around my office some and came up with a few unusual items (I think).  Mind you, I don't consider myself a collector. This is just stuff I have.     Planescape metal box with a resin-cast Lady of Pain on the lid (English license, I think)     Lady of Pain belt buckle (I'm told if you sit down while wearing it, you'll know why she's called the lady of pain)     Several old folders -- one red sales folder with Morley on the cover, a TSR Periodicals folder with a woman and dragon on front (signed Barnes)     The original maquette for the aboleth toy (that's around here somwhere)     A stack of various TSR calendars, most still in shrink wrap     A TSR belt buckle with the circle wizard logo.     A TSR pewter chess set (I think only 400 were made, I could be wrong)     10th anniversary pewter chalice (it says so, right on the bottom, needs some repair)  There may be more odds and ends around here, I really don't have time to look through old boxes.  zeb

I would especially like to see the following:  Lady of Pain belt buckle Tsr Pewter Chess Set AND  Maquette of the Aboleth!  When might you be auctioning all these unusual items?
