Don't know how long it was on for, but my fingers couldn't type fast enough on the BIN button.  :lol:

Hi Brendon -



Man, that's a fantastic pickup. Now I see why you didn't need issues 1 & 3 on our deal from last week!



Regards



Mike

Ah yes, I knew it was coming after I saw the first few Dragons come up because he advertised he would be selling it. :D Probably a bit high anyway, but I couldn't help myself even though I knew the last one went I beleive for $88.00. :wink:
As far as the BINs go, Dragon #1 was $399.99. 8O, Dragons 2-4 were $199.99 and Dragons 5-10 were $99.99. I am still looking to complete my Dragon collection. :oops:

I know.  I picture him as being in some subterranean lair 17 stories underground (not unlike Dan Akroyd at the beginning of Spies Like Us, on HBO this past weekend, vastly underrated  :D ), compulsively doing nothing but checking ebay.   8O  :D

Dungeon Geomorphs Set 2.  In shrinkwrap.  Although it had been carefully removed then replaced.  Looks original and has a $3 price sticker.

The UK Basic Rulebook in the lot was in even worse shape than I had feared, but it worked out in the end.  2nd from the left is a UK 1st PHB.

(And I finally am the proud owner of a B2! :))

Does anyone recognize those character sheets, though?  They're new to me.

I was going to bid on this one myself, but I totally forgot. :oops:  1st print DMG and 2nd Print PHB & MM. Congrats to Julia:

I was too, but I saw Julia (and others) going for it.  I don't need multiples that badly... :)

Hi John -



If it's any consolation (I know all about the pain on getting outbid after being certain your snipe is plenty), the set will come round on ebay again. I was lucky enough to pickup a woodgrain TSR Tractics set for $12 last year - it helped that it was out here in Australia and I was the only bidder.



Harami can probably correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall a Guidon set on ebay earlier this year (or perhaps late last year) that went for about the same as your bid on this set. I think Stormber picked it up, or maybe Chromaticknight.



When you acquire the next set for $50, you'll be happy missing out on this one....



Regards



Mike

Very nice price.  I hope that was in US$.  AU$ would be an incredible price.

I would be very happy with $50 :D .  Although I never knew I wanted one until they were listed on this forum!  :oops:  But that goes for a lot of the stuff I've bought :?

$120-140 sounds about right, IMHO; Guidon Games' Tractics by Reese & Tucker with Gygax



Paul's Guidon set I pushed to $140+, IIRC (as opposed to the $71 Mike guessed last time ;)).

I doubt a woodgrain set would go for as little as $50 in VG+ condition very often, since I've seen wargamers willing to bid well above that mark if they spot it.



*sigh*. And that's on top of your recent "miss" on the Cavaliers and Roundheads, too; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5237760573 (would have expected $50+, rather than $38 ).



And a fairly decent (and rare) "Fast Rules" which went for a sensible $21; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5236599670



Plus those other Guidon items which went higher. (Bit of a glut recently, but rather an exception and still only "one of each").

Was too lazy to place the snipe on the C&R.  And my hopeful snipe on the Fast Rules never made the final.
