Very nice G monos.  Excellent win. :)


The question is can I get the stickers off without ruining them?

They do kind of look like ones that would peel of nice but them again those covers are more papery than gloss and can tear easily.

The G1 is a 2nd, but the others are 1sts.  And they're gorgeous and clearly unused.  So I was pretty happy with that!




Agree with above.

I would not even try to remove the stickers.

IMO:

1. They do not detract from the condition enough to lessen the value.

2. Taking them off might damage the covers.

Even if you get them off, you are going to have a square discolored section of cover where the tag covered up the cover. Those covers have faded from age - even though they look like new - and the glue on the tag will discolor the section, typically darker.
Don't remove them.
If you can't resist the dark side of the force, use a hair dryer to heat the tag area to soften the glue and cross your fingers. :wink:

I've been looking for a nice EPT box set, but have always been outbid.  Finally, found one, for a decent price.

It's a first print, all of the box corners are solid, and the maps and book appear unused.  Now, if I can learn how to speak snake, maybe I can run a campaign in Tekumel!   :lol:

Looks like the gold-plated Grenadier Orc Shaman. Nice pickup at that price.

Once upon a time, my mother in law bought out a bunch of s/w d&d at the px.  I thought she gave it all to my brother in law years ago.

Imagine my surprise when I received a gift in the mail....  S/W blue expert box set.  Apparently, she has found some more of the d&d from the px purchase!  

Apparently, they couldn't sell it for the original clearance price of 3.47 so they marked it down to 2.67.  She thinks she paid much less, lol.

Lucky me!

No word yet on whether or not there are any s/w white boxes left in the lot.  I would love to own one or even just examine one to see if it looks like original or aftermarket shrink.

Ridiculous price thread is down the way buddy. :)



Wow, When I see stuff like this I think "GOOD LUCK Fellow Collector" but the LJN toys just don't interest me at all.  They aren't "really" D&D in my particular definition and I just can't see someone else thinking they are worth that much, but, GOOD LUCK Fellow Collector!  My crap that's valuable to me is looked on with disinterest by a large portion of society as well. :)

I agree with you, of course, but I wasn't sure if it was a Fun Find, or Silliest Price or a Laughable Description. Maybe all three! :roll:

Ah!  I think I saw that exact auction.  Wasn't it a BIN?  I remember spotting it while at work and planned to probably scoop it up... and by the time I got home, it was gone.  lol  You beat me to it.  ;)  Nice grab!  :)
