Sweet… I can't imagine a nicer copy after reading the description. My copy is about an 8.5 after seeing this one. I'll have to dig it out and compare. Is this seller the same dude sitting on the pile of Fazzles? I remember when having a Fazz was insane. I believe I had one of five known. This old cat changed all that. Anyway, great snag, and enjoy. There's something magical about these old tournies.

Nope.  In fact he seems to have been putting off writing it.  

The interesting news is the talk of a Thomas Covenant movie.  Lets hope they don't completely Hollywoodize it and create another disaster like I Robot.

Same guy with the Fazzles, he intends to auction a Fazzle early this year as well.

Oh nice!!!  I didn't even know there was such a thing.  I'll have to add that to the search list.  If you're ever interested in selling it, let me know!

If it's anything like the one I got from him, it should be rated "pristine", with with that "clear,crisp minty smell"  :lol:

If it was he did an amazing job of it.  It has older type paper and printed in ink not toner.  I am satisfied it is genuine!!

Definitely museum quality.  As are the Fazzles he sells.  Get one if you can.   :D

By the way, congrats Jeff!


Let mirth prevail!

I only learned about them either after reading the Fantastic Worlds of Grenadier, or from this board around the time of the first DCSIII auctions, when his TSR lizardmen, and a few various Grenadier gold (plated?) figures found their way to eBay within several months.

I'm not likely to sell it anytime soon, William, but when/if I do, I'll certainly post here first :D

I still kick myself for not getting the chance to bid on that TSR lizardman.  I had a manual snipe that went awry, and the lizardman ended up going for a song to IO.  
I've got both the gold plated figures (wizard and orc shaman) that I know definitively exist.  I could have sworn there was a gold basilisk but even Andy Chernak doesn't recall that one so maybe not...

Don't despair! The Collector's Trove will be offering a 1977 Grenadier TSR Lizard Man Logo Miniature in the Kevin Hendryx auction in the upcoming months. I am just waiting to receive a few manuscripts from Kevin and a run of the Random Events TSR newsletter.
