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 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.

Hrm.  Australia... I'm guessing it's one of the Valhalla Games items, which someone mentioned were re-shrinked by the store.

Seller shn_ledbetter has five separate auctions . . . and a single auction that combines the items from the five separate auctions:



. . . http://toys.search.ebay.com/_Toys-Hobbi ... fledbetter



I have e-mailed the seller asking if the five-book auction is for the same books that are in the five separate auctions.



Seller is a new zero-feedback eBayer.

I remember that auction.  Nothing minty about it, but complete and well kept, and thoroughly enjoyed and played.  A real sense of loss from the guy giving it up.  I agree, this has a similar feel.
