Would you like a wing or a drumstick:

Silly? Not at all. The applicable figs are on the rare side.

Good luck  :)  You never know. You may indeed find an LJN figure missing an arm or leg and then you will make a buck.

I know that as well: with a full ressurrection spell you can obtain the body as a whole with a limited part of it such a wing or a leg...  :roll:

This one qualifies for both this thread and the laughable price. The seller obviously has been spending too much time on Amazon.

Not so much that the descriptions are laughable, but that the items themselves are laughable:

Actually, it sounds like there was tape sealing the long edges of the boxed sets and they thought that was how they were sold, so they thought they were sealed.  Oopsie.

From the auction description:
Sealed with one strip of clear tape on each long side side.  This appears to be the original seal.

I like the combination of acceptable condition and water damage with mold throughout the book.

"I did not go through this book. From the outside it looks worn."

(Check out the *other* pictures.  "Looks worn" might really mean that it looks like it has been worn as battle armor for six weeks during Operation Desert Storm.)

When I saw the shipping on this, I thought he was from Canada.

I humbly apologize to my fellow Canadians.   8O

Ahh he re-listed the item, with only slightly over the top shipping...

... the two books still aren't worth that much.

Hmm, I'm not sure why it is not replacing the item number with a ebay preview. This was at one time probably posted in the Ridiculous Auction thread as for many moths this was listed for way more than what it should have been. However recently I noticed the price dropped (still too high in my opinion, nor do I even need what is being sold) but the new description is simply hilarious. Nothing like be cursed into buying something!
