Prices like this remind me why I am not into collecting miniatures:

Now this is a bit shocking:




** expired eBay auction **




These usually end up around $30 or more.  I was going to bid on it and just flat out forgot.  Oh well.  :(

I agree here. There is a big difference between trekkies and gamers who need/want miniatures.



FASA's Star Trek game just plain sucked. Their starship combat version is just plain crap.



Whoever bought that set of miniatures must have been a trekkie, because you can buy the ship miniatures much cheaper through Task Force Games that are used for Star Fleet Battles (which should never be confused with anything related to Trekism).


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Good to know.  I have actually been looking at some FASA Star Trek stuff lately to get a feel of the prices thinking that I might pick up a few items.  Funny that you also mention how bad their starship combat system is.  I picked up the Tactical Combat Simulator about a month ago.  I already have The Last Starfighter box set by FASA and have been wanting to also get the Battlestar Galactica box set to round out the three but the prices on BSG have been through the roof lately.

Maybe I will save my money and spend it on some of the Last Unicorn Trek RPG stuff.  Or did it suck as well?  :P

Ya gotta understand that my quote is coming from a SFB junkie. We played that game forever. I also did several scenarios, articles and other smaller stuff for the game.

From a player's perspective, SFB is the best spaceship boardgame that I have ever seen. Everything else is woefully weak in comparison. But I did like the Babylon 5 game...much more simple, but it was clean.

Ironically, I am more anti-Trek than anything else sci fi. I think the original series was cool, in its campy way. I hated all the spin-offs, and none more than the Next Generation.

The Last Unicorn stuff was very nicely done.  The Romulans box set Way of the D'era was particularly good.  They covered all the series (except Enterprise which didn't exist then and, well, the show wasn't very good anyway) so you could game your preferred "generation."

Ok, so it's technically not an auction price, but I have several items on my Half.com wishlist in case they pop up there...Half.com notifies me and I can buy them if I want to. They have a feature where you can automatically buy something no matter what the price....several very over optimistic sellers try to take advantage of this.  I defy anyone to find higher prices anywhere in the world on any medium for these following items:

Beyond the Mountains of Madness: An Epic Campaign and Sourcebook The Starkweather-Moore Expedition of 1933-34 (Paperback, 1999)
Author: Charles Engan, Janyce Engan

Best Price: $258.88
List Price: $39.95

Delta Green: A Call of Cthulhu Sourcebook of Modern Horror and Conspiracy from Pagan Publishing (Paperback, 1997)
Author: Adam Scott Glancy, Dennis Detwiller, John Tynes

Best Price: $1,817.50
List Price: $27.95

I feel cheated, Isold my last Delta Green for about $60.  I left $1700+ on the table!!!!!

Ouch  8O  

We have a similar website in France, where prices are completely insane. One of main reason is that this website takes at least 20-30% of the selling price for their fees... is it the same with this website?

Did crazyegor blow a gasket?  I know these dont normally go for small change but that starting price is just a bit on the "what the hell is he thinking?" side of things.
