Two things amuse me about this listing:



1. It is in Toys/Hobbies ---Games --- Role Paying



2. What is wrong with ordinary chocolate topping you buy in the supermarket?

I was lurking this one, hoping to get it for cheap with a snipe.



I almost won a copy of The October of Chaos.



With $5 starting bid and $5 shipping....kind of an increase over the 99 cent copy I won a year or so ago.

This is weird.  The scan for this item is the lid for the Map of Middle-Earth Jigsaw Puzzle.  Note the 2 whited-out areas on the top left and right corners.  They hide the word puzzle.  Nowhere in the add do I see that that this is a jigsaw puzzle being sold.  If it is the puzzle a $50 BIN is certainly high.  Maybe the seller can clear this up for me.  :?:

Seller just cleared this up for me.  It is the poster.  Since he couldn't get a good photo for the poster he used the puzzle box scan since it was identical.

Well, that seller is notorious for that sort of thing. Likewise, for other GW items, like Treasure Cards or White Dwarf inserts, that are actually print-outs or pdfs. Pisses me off.

If that was cheap (ie not $100 but maybe like $10.00) I would buy that.  Believe it or not I have the minis and not the box or contents :?

Heh. I believe it. I would have been interested had 1) it not been so expensive, 2) were complete and 3) I had not just bought a complete copy from Crazy Egor for less.

The description isnt very funny but the photo sure is:




** expired/removed eBay auction **




Kinda interesting how there is so much wear to that corner but the thing is shrinkwrapped, which isnt even mentioned in the description.  I darn sure wouldn't bid on it.
