You're welcome, although I was hoping the seller would get a few more dollars. Mis-spelling Cthulhu was kinda fatal.

The 1st edition box ain't that common by any means (certainly not in the UK), even if it doesn't often sell for much over $20-25. Undervalued, IMO.

$279 is as high as I've seen, anyhow...).


Yeah, that was me just deciding that I finally had to have them to complete my set and was tired of being outbid in previous auctions.  I just need 2 and 3 so it can be expected that 1 and 4 will be back on eBay separately in a month of so unless someone wants to make me an offer now.   :wink:

Ah, just as well it's #1 and #4 you were missing, rather than those two you needed.

I turned down the chance to snap up those two issues (NM copies) a week earlier for around $60. Thought that was a bit steep... ;)

Well I paid over $ 50 for a first edition almost mint copy of CoC. I was quite relaxed because the highest bid (mine) was around $ 15 with just one day to go. Then I discovered that another ITALIAN collector started bidding against me so the auction spiraled out of countrol (did I wrote that correctly?  :oops: ). I emerged triumphant, but with a high price.

Well, in any case, I am just going to resell it. . . I almost never get any Cthulhu items in the lots I buy (too many of those who want them when they are listed!)

Here's a good one:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 7&rd=1

See if you can find the hidden gem....

I'll have to see if grodog is willing to part with the Metamorphosis Alpha if he wins.  I know that's not the gem of the auction, but I don't really care for the gem of the auction.

Here is something for traveller fans.  I really dont know much about it, but it seems like a decent deal with a $14.99 +shipping BIN:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0&rd=1

Looks like its too late anyway someone seems to have nabbed that up right away.

New, those are about $35.00. What that book contains is reprints of the thirteen LBB supplements for Traveller. These reprints are of course authorized by the man himself, Marc Miller. http://www.farfuture.net/ffe/n5510b.html has more info, and 404 Not Found has general information on the entire Traveller line.

Somehow, every time that I looked at this auction I only saw the Phoenix Mines of Keriadev, and missed both Misty Isles and Booty & the Beasts.  Sheesh :/

Looks like the lot went for just under $500, which is not at all bad, considering just those two items, much less the rest of the stuff....

Neat trick, Allan! :?

Well, I guess that's two of us might not have minded a bid.
(although that Lizard Gamma auction was perhaps a better price on the percentages, IMHO.
Not that I'm even daring to add up...).

I would have wanted Elbrith and Booty. I think many people considered Misty to be the "hidden" gem, but Booty was the real one. Keridav was reprinted, so unless you are a completist, it is easily available. Infernax is another one people might have missed.

First time I've seen it, but I don't place a huge value on it. I'm sure there are more out there.

Totally non-RPG related, but check out a2jeff's Star Wars auction of old figures and stuff. Man does that bring back memories:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 3&rd=1

I am almost tempted to bid.

a2jeff is doing himself a disservice (perhaps) in selling these as one lot.

I just sold my Death Star (which was mostly complete).  The division of my lots (and final sale price) was as follows:

- Death Star "Rope" - $37.01(this is perhaps the single most valuable "part" as it is missing from most sets)
- Two Cardboard back panels $22.00
- Beams & Supports: $11.16
- Box, instructions, floors, tower, trash compactor (missing foam pieces and "monster"), gun (broken) and roof. $23.03

Total: $93.20

Millenium Falcon is next when I get around to it. . . "Jedi Training Ball" is the most vaulabe part here (but not anywhere near the Death Star Rope).  By the way, $37.00 was a little disappointing - it often goes for $50-70.

Sorry, but I've got to ask.  WTF is a Death Star "Rope"?  :?
