Are they similar / the same as for the game?


They are for the game.  A Dragon and some adventurers.

I bought a few of the big Reaper guys for a friend at 50% off as well:

Marthirangul
Verocithrax
Gauth

I also took some pictures of the rest of the stuff - not sure if I will get back there or not (images are big):

Maybe I should have bought more?

I count at least 6 things there I would not mind having.

I really know next to nothing about minis.  I don't know if those Adiken Dragons or Prince August ones would have been a good buy or not (to resell).  There were about another 10 boxes of the Prince August ones that didn't seem to make it in the picture.

WOW what a find.  Go back and buy all the 10 series boxsets (birthright, dragon mountain etc) these are really hot.  Leave the adiken stuff (real crap).  This is a vertible gold mine.  The birthright boxsets are easily worth over $100 if complete, the rest (10 series) are all $50 or more per box.  The Grenadier dragons go for $25 or more.

Lots of goodies are hidden in that store.

Normally Egg_of_Coot is there with me to buy all the miniatures stuff.  Now that he is back in the TBay, I am lost without him.

I was thinking that I should have picked up most of those 10 series boxed sets.  Most of them are open and missing a few figures (and have extra figures placed in).  But even so, each box would have been about $6-$7 each (not exactly a big risk).  I also ended up taking the 10 series Planes of Law, Planes of Chaos, and Diablo II Heroes and Monsters but haven't gone through them to see what exactly is there or not.

Yeah, I miss riding shotgun with you as well Mark.  I'd hate to think of my VISA bill if I'd been with you at that shop though.  We definitely would have needed your pick-up to haul all that swag home . . .

I am thinking about trying to get back there to grab the rest of the D&D 10 series boxed sets (even though incomplete) and the other 3 big Reaper guys.

I will check out the Grenadier Dragons too and see what they are priced at.  But if there is anything you guys are looking for inparticular that it looks like they might have, let me know with your buy price and I will add it to the list.  I might end up charging a small gas fee ($1 - $2) depending on who I can persuade to drive me back there - its about 100 mile (160 km) round trip.

Have fun, you lucky bastage.  :)

If you see any Custom Cast, Heritage, or early Reaper minis in original plastic bags (Heritage recasts), then pick those up.  They are worth reselling.

I don't know that anyone gives Prince August minis any love.  I have never seen any in their original packaging; they may be worth squat or worth good money, but they are interesting in their own right.

If you see any old Gamescience or old precision-edge dice, those may be worth buying, as I would buy them from you.   :D

Hey... I know that store - I was in around Christmastime... it wasn't clearing out at 1/2 price then!  

(Even at 'regular' price looks like I missed some bargains as I must have passed those minis right by)   :?  

Nice find, Mars!  Enjoy the trip  :D

The 50% of sale started on Saturday so it is still relatively new.  Good job in finding the store though.  I've been through the city a number of times but never went to this store (has to be one of the very few I missed in Ontario).

Okay back from trip #2.

No sign of these: "Custom Cast, Heritage, or early Reaper minis in original plastic bags (Heritage recasts)" or any old dice.

I grabbed some of the Ral Partha boxes but 4 or 5 of them were basically just boxes with misc minis stuffed in them (so I left them).  I picked up a few that had some of the original contents among the others but don't know if they have much value or not.  Here's a tally of the sets:

WOC 40025 Diablo II Monsters
* includes skeleton, hellhound, corrupted rogue, bloodhawk, The Slayer
* missing Goat Demon

WOC 40024 Diablo II Heroes
* includes spectre head, necromancer, barbarian
* missing amazon, paladin, sorceress

10-521 Planescape Powers of Law
* includes gruumsch, maglubiyet, tyr
* missing clangeddin silverbeard, set, horus, hecate, moradin

10-520 Planescape Powers of Chaos
* includes ygorl, gorellik (2 copies)
* missing baphomet, bast, loki, corellon larethian, lolth, fairie queen

10-524 Birthright Personalities of the Blood
* includes Shaemes Lavalier, Nadia Vasily, Teodor Profiev, The Wizard
* missing Kalilah bint Daouda, Caliedhe Dosiere, Grimm Graybeard, Darian Avan, Guilder Kalien, Aeric Boeruine, Tie'skar Graecher

10-523 Birthright Abominations
* includes Magician (2 copies), Manticore (2 copies), Hag of Muden (2 copies)
* missing Gorgon, White Witch, Vampire, Raven, Rhoubhe Manslayer, Siren

10-562 AD&D Battlesystem Miniatures Brigade (The Grey Blossom Regiment)
* includes 3 armored Bushi, 5 unarmored bushi
* missing 9 armored bushi, 7 unarmored bushi, 1 mounted commander, 1 sohei

Complete boxed sets
10-561 AD&D Battlesystem Miniatures Brigade (Billidum and the Ogre Marauders of Spiderhaunt)
10-517 Ravenloft Dr. Mordenheim's Laboratory
10-541 Dark Sun Light War Chariot
10-513 DragonStrike (shrink)

26 misc minis that were in the boxed set that I will photo and ask for ID next :)

I think the big find was the Dragons Don't Share (Reaper) big piece.  The only bit that I can find online for it is here:

http://www.miniature-giant.com/dragons- ... 11139.html

Any clue at what this one would sell for?

I sold several of these large Reaper Dragon boxed sets in shrink about a year and a half ago and they generally sold for about half the SRP.  I suspect this boxed set will be the same.  I'd try to just make more money than you bought it for and be happy. 8)

Also, there's a series 11 Catoblepas with no bids on eBay right now and less than eight hours to go:

I was just curious about the price - if this one had a gold filled core or something.  I bought Dragons Don't Share and 5 other big Reapers for EggofCoot (since he wasn't there with me) so its not a resell.

Here is my want list.

10-551 Menzoberranzan boxed set. It doesn't have to be complete, I'm mainly looking for the four female figures.

11-070 Caramon (regret selling the two I had)

Lolth & Baphomet from the 10-520 powers of chaos box.

Looks like $70 Tas is up for auction again. The high bidder from last week is no longer an ebayer.

It looks like I will get back to the store one more time (tomorrow).  I think I am going to pick up a couple of the bigger Prince August guys.  He has a few of each of the "Flying Dragon" and "Fire Demon".

Here's a picture of the Flying Dragon:

404 Not Found

and the Fire Demon:

404 Not Found

The pic of the fire demon is from an auction.  The figure is the same but the box looks more like the one in the flying dragon picture.

It looks like the price on these is going to be about $15 CAD each + shipping to wherever you are at (unless you want to pick them up from me).  Send me a message if you want one or want me to look for anything else.

Good deal, bad deal or fair deal?

I've heard these can top $120.00.

Here's another. Good deal, bad deal or fair deal?
