** expired eBay auction **


What surprised me was how large the Demogorgon and Orcus figures were.  They were twice as tall as I expected.  Here's a picture I took of them both next to a 25mm Storm Giant and a Githyanki Knight.

I really liked that first auction and you outbid me.   Not only was the demigorgon in there but it included the little demon (to the right in the picture) that was part of the same blister.   I don't think I've ever seen that one before.    I sold the demigorgon itself for over $13.00  a few months ago.

Ah!  That's what I wanted to know.  Thanks!  Yeah, their were about eight minis in that auction that interested me to the point I'll keep them.  And when I was able to win those other two auctions and combine shipping, I feel pretty good about what I paid.  What I don't want, I'll sell off this December or next year.   Thanks again!   8)

Ye, unfortunately that's right.  Peter Rice is still around, though.

This has got to be one of the strangest things I have ever purchased:


** expired eBay auction **


Kinda surprised I got it as cheap as I did.  :)

That is a later printing, but $10 is very cheap. Good book!

Thanks to Mars I found a bunch of Deadlands (non-d20 variety) stuff which is good. Helps get that collection a-rolling much further than it had been.

Ah, the difference a few keywords make...

Last week I won this:  
** expired eBay auction **


It wasn't a BIN, just not advertised well, and missing good keywords.


This just ended:


** expired eBay auction **


It was well advertised and had more keywords.




And a while back I stumbled across Graeme Davis selling his even more limited presentation copy for a low BIN...

about 5 years ago i bought from james wallis one of the two "personal" unnumbered copies of realms of sorcery for about 51 pounds. it just goes to show you one never knows what's going to happen once an auction starts....

Better shape than I thought it might. The corner is very crushed, and the thing is still in shrinkwrap. There is a sticker on top of the shrink (very faded) saying

Comes complete with 10 Gamescience High Impact Dice (a $10 value).

Anyone have a copy with this sticker on the outside?

My copy was open and the dice gone when I got it.  I'm not surprised about the crushed corner.  These boxes are very fragile - I store mine flat.

Checking the bidding I'd doubt that low BIN on an openly described lot had a chance to nap, far less become a "sleeper". ;)

Not sure if this is a screaming deal, but $7 for a T&T box set in nice shape made me happy!

Just put in what I thought was a token bid... and ended up  8O


** expired eBay auction **


Beautiful shape. A little aging and a tiny stain on the cover, and rusty staples are the only drawbacks.
