First of all, I'm pretty sure the fair was in 1893. I don't think I've ever seen a D&D miniature mistaken for a World's Fair souvenir before, much less a likeness of Christopher Columbus. I've already contacted the seller to let her know what she really has (a Heritage Dungeon Dwellers female cleric), but in hindsight, maybe I should have waited. If a bidding war erupted, I know where to get many more copies of Mr. Columbus ;)






I WILL SHIP INTERNATIONAL ..BUT HAVING HAD SOME ISSUES

EITHER PRIORITY INSURED..OR FIRST CLASS WITH

CONFIRMATION..BUT I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF LOST






Another seller who hasn't gotten the memo?



How about:  I will insure and I will mail with confirmation because I am responsible if lost.

Hey SimperingToad,



That 3rd wraith on the right looks like he has teddy bear ears. :)

I've had customers pay crazy prices like that for some miniatures.  This isn't crazy, but I just sold a blister this weekend for much higher than I thought it would sell for:

Very few companies make 25MM minis anymore, and if they do, their variety is low or their sculpting is average.  Most manufacturers now produce 28mm minis.  Maybe that's part of what's going on.   :?

goddessinga REALLY likes this book, and looks like she thinks the authors inscription to her is worth $175 more than the market price for one unsigned...



Erotic Fantasy (D20 book) which normally sells for closer to $25...

They are from the 'other side of the pad', as it were.  :D

And it looks like the driders have been much reduced. If I recall correctly, they were initially listed as $99.

They wont (likely) sell at $19.99 either.

Lots of bizarre Heroquest up at the moment ($500-1000 @).
This one from Italy is the bizarrest:

As someone who used to have a fascination with Masters of the Universe figures I can tell you that some of them are worth quite a bit, especially the ones that were only released in Europe (which this one was).

Here is one that isnt complete and has been taken off the card with over 4 days left and is sitting over $200 and has 7 bids:

And here is one that sold recently for $1200:

So not nearly as ridiculous as you previously thought?  I'm sure there are some action figure collectors out there wondering why some people would pay several thousands of dollars for a stupid role-playing game in an ugly woodgrain box.  :roll:

I must have dyslexia or something.  Only sold for a bit over $1100.  :wink:

If you want to see ridiculous prices, check out some of the 70's Star Wars figures.  Most of the higher priced items have nothing to do with the figure itself but the differences on the back of the display cards.

And to think, I sold my complete collection of pre-1985 Star Wars figures and vehicles back in 1990 or so for about $300, not to mention all of the fan club extras weapons, backpacks, etc. Ah well, such is life.

I remember when they cancelled the fan club. The letter was something like, no one cares anymore, why do you?

I worked for a wholesaler that bought up remainder stock. We got in a few pallets of Power of the Force, Marvel Secret Wars and some DC action figures. With my discount they were .40c each. I should have bought the pallets as they came in, but who knew.
