I think it depends, how deep is the box?

If my dim memory serves me correctly, there was a 'thick' box (about 3 inches deep) and a thin box (maybe 1 inch deep).


That is a second print box.  Although not as good a win as a first print box, that is still a pretty good win. For reference check here:

Did I do alright on this guys?
I'm not really a collector of the AD&D action figures but I thought this would make a fantastic display?

I just picked up a copy of The Star of Kolhapur at my FLGS for the outrageous price of $2.00.  :D

The copy of probably in about Fine condition based on Acaeum grading conventions.  I thought it was a cool find.

well, this post is a question rather than an assessment:


** expired eBay auction **


was it a nice finding or not? ...is it boxed set complete? is it a 1st print or a later one? ...i know that box conditions are not superb, but i thought it was a nice deal anyway... can you give me your opinions on what i did???  :roll:

EDIT: eheheh... a stupid error in copy&paste...  :oops:

Axel

as you are italian and not english i will explain :D

if the auction was still running, i would have said IS.

as the auction had ended by you doing a BIN, i said WAS.

it WAS for sale. do you see? :)

ehi al, what shoud i see? i'm not there with you...  :?

ok, seriously, dont know english so deep but i feel (of course if you were serious) that my concern i wrote you goes beyond the language used: you wrote "it was a BH set" ... you didnt write "it was a BH auction"... the set *IS* for it is still existing... tha auction *WAS* as it ended... (or, at least, this is what in italy should be correct!)

Should have a rule book, map and counters. There might be a mini scenario, too. I can't quite remember.

The description says something about five books inside. Odds are there are at least three modules in it. People are always adding modules to these boxed sets thinking they came that way originally.

As far as condition goes, it looks fine. A set like that usually goes for around $25-35 U.S. without the modules.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
