That's what I get for relying upon a brand-x gaming site.

Well, the individual items have the right dates; it's the company page that misstates "late" 80s.  Rpggeek isn't as good for deep detail on really obscure items, but I use it at about the same level as rpg.net when I'm looking for information about items without dedicated collector/fan sites - good for general info and often pics.

The cover color and font give it away. I only looked through mine maybe twice but I remember it fairly well. I really like that style; same with Wee Warriors.

I'll throw one up that I picked up recently (and was very excited to find) - probably they are still on a few want lists.  Anyone else have them?

Here's a link to the back cover too:

After finding these two, I was able to track down the author and the same tragic story emerged.  About 12 years ago, before moving they got thrown out.  I then sent a follow up email about basic info such as number of copies printed but didn't get a response back.

Thanks for tracking them down. I guess that firms up the rarity rating somewhat. :?

That one's easy.  Prototype of Isle of the Ape, before Allston sold the rights to TSR.  Very rare.  Check to see if there's a PO Box address inside front cover -- that'll tell you if it's a first print or second.

Star Wars module. The main character (pictured) is the offspring of a Wookie and an Ewok.

Not even listed in the bibliography on his site, so that's pretty obscure.
