Is the Mayfair Invincible Overlord setting worth picking up?

Here is a box set in shrink (low start auction, not one of the many BINs) with 2 days to go.

I was referring to this program as well when I stated International Priority Shipping :) I should have better explained.
I will never buy again to a seller who use this program.

I'm going to say no. All the Mayfair City State stuff is absolutely boring, unmemorable and unessential.

People still buy it though because they don't know what crap Mayfair came out with in their version of this legendary supplement.

Agree !!
Just got a parcel shipped with this system from the USA, it is not faster than a direct shipment with USPS and is is a theft !! 8O
The import taxes you have to pay when ordering are just insane. :evil:
Several times I tried to ask a seller to change this shipping method to USPS. One seller said it was impossible, or maybe it is just not easy for a seller not used to Ebay to do so.
I decided not to bid.
I guess that Ebay makes a lot of money with this shipping program.

Essentially, this is the whole reason behind it.  They charge extra handling fees to more than cover the labour and also always charge the import taxes & duties which they get to keep a portion.

It's really not that hard to ship international, but I suspect most sellers who don't usually do overseas shippings get confused and just take the easiest option.

Nice looking copy of Beastlord ... unpunched  PDT_Armataz_01_05

The seller accepted a $30 offer on DragonLord ... just an FYI.

That's the usual one, from Reed, with Strongheart & Warduke.
Wish there had been one with Sutherland's art (like the beach towel) prior.

Yes, I have one like the one in the listing above in Shrink Wrap as well.

Yeah, this guy must have found a box of them.  He has been selling them for a while now.  I picked up one several months ago.

Not on ebay, but for those of us who collect minis (must be a few here) and are fans of Reaper and/or Sophie, Reapercon was last weekend and a few of their Swag Bags are still available:

Reaper Miniatures :: OnlineStore

And or course, the limited Reapercon mini this year (Cowgirl Sophie!):

Reaper Miniatures :: OnlineStore

Free shipping on orders over $35.  Not for everyone of course, but just a heads up because when they're gone...


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

faro wrote in Interesting Non-TSR Items Formerly on eBay:Pretty much as expected, sorry to say.

Early RM is badly undervalued/underrated in general. When a relative rarity is listed - and in this case it is not so much the books as the fine condition box, many/most of which were cut up - the ending price appears rather depressing vs. a so-so run-of-the-mill TSR mod or similar.

This other seller couldn't even get $9.99 for their box with extras, which despite the considerable additional shelf wear is still holding out not too badly considering how fragile these are;

Well, when you message them to ask if it's complete (can't tell from the picture) and they don't respond, you're not going to get any bidders.  I'm interested but only if it's complete.

Well, I can tell you I won't ship overseas without using it.  Unless the items is selling for 100s, it just isn't worth it.  Perfect example, I drive to my Post Office, I now have 20 minutes invested, now I stand for up to an hour in line (only one of the tellers accept overseas packages, then I fill out a form go through the hassle of figuring out the postage (boy, hope I got that right when I quoted it) then I send it and drive 20 minutes back.  I have at least an hour and maybe more invested in this.  Sorry, I don't make minimum wage, not worth it.  Ebay won't allow you to charge and extra handling fee for overseas orders so this is about the only reasonable way.  
Just like I won't ship other than "if it fits, it ships".  One buyer insisted he wanted media mail if he was going to bid.  Okay, so you want me to give up: provided packaging, free tracking and free insurance, so you can save $2 on a $8 item?  "Don't bid".
I'm not a business and I don't need the money.  I'm just trying to get rid of extra stuff in a way that balances convenience and profit.

Why don't you simply use the Flat Rate envelopes and boxes for worldwide and print the shipping at home?  I think in the US, the mailman will even pick these up from your house so you don't even have to go to the post office.
