And was/is the sale price available for public consumption?


I think it involved the exchange of a woody (if you know what I mean), but I'm not sure.  No, it wasn't made public to my knowledge.

He has been bidding on miniatures auctions in the past few months.  If he's bidding on an item, he generally bids a lot more than others bidders.  His bids aren't last-minute bids or snipes, at least in the auctions that I've been watching or bidding on.  (insert good-natured growl here.)  :)

That Umber Hulk bubble blower is flat out the bomb! My vote for best TSR licensed product ever. You just can't beat it. If I collected such stuff, it would be the crown jewel. :D

Does anyone here collect that sort of stuff? I agree that Umber Hulk Bubble Blower is cool. If there was a D&D museum, it should have its own display case.

Look at the third portfolio on the right. Doesn't it look like the dragon is tickling the battle-axe guy with its tongue?

I'd vote for that too. Or maybe the Ankheg Underbelly Pink paint.

It is from a german "danse macabre" (Doten Dantz) by Heidelberg in 15's century

This is what I would like to find:

Back when I was in elementary school I always remember that the music teacher would show us a film strip with pictures of skeletons dancing in a cemetary while the grim reaper played violin to the song "Danse Macabre" by Camille Saint-Saens


http://www.menc.org/networks/genmus/ope ... /1869.html

My music teacher in elementary school used to play this with a film strip that showed the skeletons getting up at night and dancing in the graveyard until the rooster crowed. Must've made an impression, as it is still one of my favorite pieces of classical music.


Did your elementary music teacher play it with the film strip that starred flying ghosts and dancing skeletons?


I remember this exactly as these posters have described. They would show it in music or art class in my elementary school. This was around when I had just the Holmes set - so they are associated in my mind.
