If you really want a D&D machine, most major cities have a vending/amusement place. You might pay a little more, but they can warranty the machine, and they usually are meticulous about shopping out a machine before they sell it.

I haven't seen the D&D one before. I'm actually looking to pick up an Indiana Jones in a month or two.




Oh, Indiana Jones pinball sounds like fun... but I'll need another storage closet to put all of it... and then there's Star Trek pinball too... sigh...



Thanks for the tip on looking for a local pinball/gaming vendor; that sounds like the way to go.

(Starstone was fun, too: didn't think it was actually possible to enter a bid the second the auction closed :))

Looks like that might be someone forcing up a price for Creep.



$60 is pretty crazy if it's a serious bid :(

I hope the seller didn't come to the conclusion that their PHB is "rare" from reading this thread. Just because a minor variant is not listed on Acaeum, does not make it rare. :roll: I've got one of these, I think I paid $7 for it. I'm pretty sure if I went hunting for 9th/10th print variants, I could pick up a few more in short order...



Anyway, I've noticed a few more details:



On a recently acquired 10th, I've noticed some other changes. Comparing it to my "9A":



* the TSR Address on the back cover (next to the angled TSR logo) has been removed

* the spine now reads "by Gary Gygax" and "TSR, Inc." , not "by E. Gary Gygax" and "TSR Hobbies, Inc.".

* the ISBN and product code on the 9A are bold compared with the 10th



Can anyone else confirm these details on any of the 9th variants?




Here is that total freakin genius appletruck292 again trying to sell his super rare 10th printing PHB, this time in a lot:



Dungeons and Dragons Modules | eBay



Boy you gotta love the clear photo and check out that BIN. Just think you only have to spend $500.00 and that rare book that has writing all through it as well as 9 other pieces of sh*t, and it could be all yours. :roll:

Both wrong.  It is Joey Ramone.  And if you look real close you can see Satan with a big sword.  Hold up....that is just the cover of the DMG for chrissakes!  :twisted:  He probably thought it would be cool to take the picture of the items through his aquarium.  I vote we put this guy to the top of the dumbass seller list.  He beats out creep1962 by a long shot at this point.

Apparently potential bidders have just stopped looking at seller feedback.  Creep has a similar amount of neutral and negative feedback and they are all for the same things: 1) Extremely slow shipping and 2) Rudeness.  If you look through a good chunk of his feedback there are a lot of positives that say "extremely slow shipping" or "took 3 weeks to get item".  It would be easy to turn a lot of these into neutrals and some even negatives.

His shipping prices on books is ridiculous IMO, his BIN's are outrageous, and he is a jerk to boot.  It is too bad people like creep and cougar are still in business.  But if no one cares how they are treated by the people they buy from, their crappy business practices will continue.  You know both of them probably read these threads but do they give a shit?  Hell no!

Creep and Cougar can choke on their H1's and R series.  I will continue to buy from people like badmike and beyondthebreach who actually give a damn about their customers.  Let the idiots of the world buy from guys like this...eventually they will be burned enough times that they might smarten up.

Yup. I probably don't make nearly as much money as either does doing the same thing, but at least I sleep well at night :)

I'd like to nominate myself for being a dumbass - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5237239687



I was afraid I wouldn't be at my computer in the final seconds (lots going on around that time), so I figure $65.57 will surely make certain I win this auction and the auction for MM9:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5237239663



Apparently someone wanted MM9 a bit more than me, and then wanted revenge for my outrageous bid so he jacked me up to my max on MM3.  :(



The worst thing is, I didn't think there was any chance of getting outbid on MM9, and I only wanted MM3 if I got MM9 too!  :(  :(



ah well, somedays you lose.

Not too high yet, but take a look at his feedback and I am not even refering to coastiemike either. He is really starting to take a beating for slow shipping times. It seems Mr Creep, seems to be selling itmes that he doesn't even own yet, thus the out of stock BS. :roll:

Ya mean other than the fact it's Creep :) Yuk, Yuk.



But seriously, wasn't the opening bid kind of high for these products?

Well, creep sure has some funny ideas about making the quick $$. But with 2000+ and a 99.6% rate I'd never have checked his feedback before placing a bid. (Not that I bought anything from him.) I think the R/RPGA-modules in his store are not really for selling, more like a show-off (to make him look like a pro who has the good stuff).



I think I paid around $50 for my own set of Encyclopedia Magica, so I hope it's not considered too high  :wink:.
