Too bad he dealt with a real scam artist who neg'd him out the wazoo. His seller feedback is spotless.



They need a double rating system, one for sales and one for buyers. With the new system someone can buy there way to a better rating.

notice the negs relate to the fact that he wanted to go pick the items up to save money and the seller wouldnt allow him, so he got hammered for negs as this wasnt "one of his payment policies"

:?

Looks like a lot of people are dumping their Indiana Jones stuff on Ebay to cash in on the new movie:

I thought about it but it looked pretty beaten up to me. Plus the seller stated he'd refuse the sale if a Paypal payment ended up as status 'Pending'. These last few weeks many of us have seen that happening for 'instant' fund transfers from bank accounts. Not worth the potential hassle.

thing is, dunno why he is taking that out on the buyer....its hardly their fault is it?

another flaw in the otherwise supposed "great" system that ebay has.

ummmmnnn .........   no they are not.
At least none of the copies I was sent anyway.

I have two copies of each type of the Bottle City Module (4 total) and NONE of them are numbered x/51.

ALL of them are signed and numbered by hand  x/ 500       with the 500 being in print, the LE's and SA's both.

The LE's (and not the SA's) had the Module number added by hand (RJK-1).
The only other real difference in the signatures is the color of ink (Green for the LE's, and black fo the SA's) and the size of the map (Larger for the LE's, and the map was folded into fourths) and a copy (Scan/print) of several pages of Rob's original notes for the game in the package for the LE's.

Perhaps the LE's that were being replaced later on due to shipping damage are different, but neither of the LE's I have (#11 and #12) were numbered x/51 as you stated.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Aneoth, Are you telling me that the 11 and the 12 on your LEs appear next to the /500, so it looks like 11/500 and 12/500 written in green? If that's the case, how do the numbers appear on your accompanying big maps?

It was my understanding, from a previous discussion while shipping the SEs, that /51 was used. It was also my understanding that the LE numbers were written with an RJK1 (or RJK-1, as we've used both now in different places) and AWAY from the printed /500.

In any case, the green ink is the guaranteed identifier. The number then tells you what it is in the sequence leading up to the 51 total. (OH, and of course, if they don't have a correspondingly numbered big map, also signed in green, then they don't have a LE.)
