Alright, I am going to rat myself out here:



http://toys.search.ebay.com/_Games_W0QQ ... Znatjester



This seller has just put a sh*t load of stuff in individual lots.  There is a lot for all 4 R series (R3 is actually unopened), there is a lot for all 4 RPGA series, a lot that includes a 1st print hex sheets, a lot that contains and an outdoor Geomporphs and several of the common module lots contain Shrinkwrap modules.  I already bid on both the R and RPGA items so no one tries to sneak a cheap BIN in, but feel free to outbid me.



Also of note are several JG auctions that include a Dark Tower, a City State of the Invincible Overlord, a Wraith Overlord, an Inferno and a whole bunch more.  



Oh BTW, the Role-Aids lot has a Beastmaker Mountain in it too.



Added, he also just put up an auction with Pegasus Magazines 1-12.

Can't help but feel that this guy has sold himself short in the auction title stakes! (Though I suppose it's all there for those of us who are searching for this nonsense)

Anyone care to take a guess at how much the R and RPGA lots will go for (perhaps I might offer a small prize to the person who gets closest! :lol: )

The fact that he actually listed R series and RPGA in the titles though is what convinced me to post it here.  Someone else would have found them eventually, but it may have slipped through enough people to keep them cheap.  My high bids on the R & RPGA auctions right now are only $299.99 each of you want to push further. :wink:   I will say though that if it doesn't get outbid by the last 24 hours or so, my bid will not be staying as low as $299.99. :wink:

Not much risk in outing that guy BC. With the amount of stuff he's got up, I doubt there's many of us that would miss his auctions, heh.

He popped up on "Complete Book of Necromancers" first for me, lol!

Which probably means that I've just lost a sale! :cry:

And as for the other stuff, I hope that I can persuade him that shipping to the UK doesn't require too much additional effort.

If any international bidders want to bid on these, if the seller agrees you can have the items shipped to me, I'll pass it along, it's no problem.  So many sellers cut their own throats by not selling internationally, they are some of my best customers! As long as I'm paid shipping costs I don't mind.

I didn't see this one mentioned, so if it was already, please forgive me.  :)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0053946208



Anyone have any estimates on a value for that lot?  Looks like most of the super mods are in it.  I don't see any 'big ticket' items hidden in there, but plenty of solid basics.



What is it worth as a lot?  What could a knowledgable seller get for all of it by breaking it up into individual lots?

As a lot, I would say it is worth its current bid of $255...but keep the $100 shipping price in mind.

Adding up the things in the lot, and figuring in the shipping costs you'd likely pay if you bought them, say, in sets of three.......

Yes, it is worth the current bit/shipping price.

The seller gushing about how many hits and watchers the set has bugs me.   :?

They pimped it here in the classifeds.  I absolutely love when we get users out of nowhere join, make one post in the classifieds section and the never see or hear form them again. :roll:   Anyway as Mark points out S&H is $100, which is absolutely ridiculous even for a lot of that size.  I am betting actual shipping is probably half of that by media mail.  Secondly, the fact that its a private auction means that I and a lot of other people) wouldn't bid on it regardless of what is in it.  All said though, I would say maybe $300 to $400 total.
