Heh, heh... I'd say that was cruel, but might be just a tad hypocritical if I did so! ;)

Oh, btw, am I this predictable, Brian?

Heh, heh, heh. Sorry, I figured I give you a little push. :P  I have a sneaking suspicion that it will go much higher than that, but if some reason it doesn't I will paypal you the $6.00 I nudged you. :wink:

BTW, that was kind of mean and not something I would normally do, but it is actually good way of practicing on finding out what high bidders bids are on items that you really want. :)

Yup, Vin Diesel is a total gaming geek. Also, the book is still available in piles on retailers shelves... neat book, just didn't go over well at all, at least, not nearly as much as some retailers has hoped...

I have a mind to email this guy and tell him what a complete fool he is.  But if he actually gets some idiot to buy it for that price then maybe he isn't such a fool after all.

I will be keeping a close eye on this one.  If he manages to sell it...my blood encrusted copy is going up with a nice little BIN.  I'll say it is autographed by the one and only avatar of Tharizdun...Vin Diesel!  That should push the price up nicely.  :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

I've flipped through it at the used bookstore.  I'd pay $5 for it, maybe, if I was drunk.

How stupid is that BIN price for DMG? It's not a 1st printing and it's got the biggest "spot" of sticker residue I've ever seen. It must be the heat or something.

The BIN was bad, but the starting bid was just as insane.  Must be fishing season, just cast that lure out and see if any brain dead fishies bite...

It's not very often that I post one on here because the final price is too low.  But that's one heck of a deal on a 4th.  Congrats Harami!  :)

The good thing is, here's an H1 in acceptable condition up for grabs. The bad thing is, the price the guy is asking for is even more ridicolous than the coug's reserve.

Looks like the market is starting to correct itself finally.

Thats the 3rd one in the last couple of weeks to go for less than $75.00.
