The Royal Mail really seems to be going down the pan.  18 years of underfunding followed by several more of regulated competition for the lucrative business market.  Given that there is no affordable alternative I'm not taking the blame for these mistakes.  So, I give the option to collect in person.  If someone wants to take the risk with the PO, then I act as an their agent to purchase the post and insurance.  It's their choice.

But saying all that I haven't had too much stuff go missing.  Only 2 of my sales.  And about 6 items I've bought never showed.  But do I complain?

... and if you do complain (as I have done) you get....    a book of stamps (at least they still have a sense of humour).

This just arrived (Thank you Post Office!)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 3192427674

Take a closer look.  G1/2/3 and D1/2/3 Australian monos!  :D

Although the photo doesn't do them justice.  The modules are unused and in excellent condition.  Not sure about the price though.  A bit high?

But even more interestingly the modules came with this sheet:

404 Not Found  :?

So, apparently an Australian combo of G1/2/3 & D1/2/3

Sure looks like it. Went too high for my liking.

It is definately a nice group of items. They look pretty clean. But I'm not too sure about the price. Seems a bit high to me.  But you do have a few nice items there...so if you are happy...all is well.

That module pack is very interesting.


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

I didn't think the price was that bad, for what was in the lot. I bid up to $444, but I suspected there would be a few others out there who would out-snipe me. If I'd won, I would have been pleased to pay that for what was in there, and stretching to $500 I don't think is paying more than the items are worth.

Congratulations John - all the stuff looked to be in excellent condition and I'm glad it turned out that way.

Regards

Mike

Thanks.  Hadn't mentioned those yet as I always prefer to wait until I have them in my hands before posting here.  In this case, money sent but no acknowledement from seller yet.

Finally I have something worthy enough to be included in the Fun Finds thread.

cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt ... T&rd=1

Fun because I've been after a copy for ages, and also because of the great price I got it for.

Regards

Mike

Nice find at a great price.  Just wish the seller had mentioned TSR, Gygax or D&D in the description.  You might have had some competition then!  :wink:

Ok, it's not a rare or super cool item, but I have had a hell of time getting one in decent shape. This one is more like near mint than excellent (as descibed). I swear it looks right off the shelf new. And I thought the price was fair.

Hi John -

Yeah, I was happy with the lack of keywords myself. Also, although in the text the seller says that she'll sell worldwide, somehow she'd managed to put 'local pickup only' in the actual shipping field, which kept it out of the ebay.com searches.

Regards

Mike

I finally got my hands on these modules.  The seller had shipped them to the wrong person.  A big thanks goes to dathon who informed me of the seller's mistake.  And thanks to the seller for acknowledging this and paying for the additional shipping.

Turns out to be #17/1000.

I just snagged this today:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEWN:IT

I got it mostly for the coloring book; while it's not apparently even close to unused, it's too good a steal for $4 including shipping (plus I'll now have a spare of each of the other two books, too!).

I'm not sure if I should post this under recent fun finds or the what you find in box sets thread.  I recently won the following auction

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5905841498

The Dungeons & Dragons "board game" and the expansion Goblin's Lair. It was a guy local to me so I didn't have to pay for shipping.  The winning bid was $3.25 and they are complete and mostly unpunched.  

However, when I opened the first box, inside was The Jade Hare and a couple of other not so worthy modules.   Also, there were a couple of "Game World" newspapers that seem to be put out by TSR for product promotion around 1992, 1993.  Does anyone know how long this ran or how many issues they put out?

In any case, not too bad for $3.25 US   :lol:
