"This is a very large lot possibly a boxed set of Cthulhu Miniatures from 1983. All of these miniatures say 1983 TSR on the bottom of the bases."




Those look like a mix of TSR AD&D, Gangbusters, Top Secret and Star Frontiers miniatures.  TSR never made any miniatures for CoC.

Leave it to T&T to list an auction like that. :roll:

Yup, its a mix.  :roll:

I see an old Roper in the pile.

I hate it when sellers don't have a clue what they are selling.

Well, you never know when you might encounter a Battlemaster or a Masakari in a fantasy adventure....gotta spice those orcs up somehow.

That's awesome. :)  My players are going to freak when I "bring the old-school" down on their heads with these High Chivalry minis...  :lol:

Really?  I love it when sellers don't have a clue what they're selling. If they don't know what they're selling, they don't use the right buzzwords, the item doesn't get as many bids as it should, and I get a bargin.  Sucks for the seller, but good for me, right?

(The "High Chivalry" thing is hilarious, though.)

OK, I don't think I would want to leave negative feedback for this guy.  I don't think I'd want to give him my address!



(One of the items makes me . . . nervous.)

This poor miniature looks like he is walking through some polar wasteland in search of the other two miniatures that are being auctioned separately:

This auction's description reads like it came from a strung-out meth-head:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **




Adding to the complete screwiness of the auction are



(1) The seller's account is "bogus22222".

(2) His feedback of 1 from buying $0.99 of MTG cards.

(3) His pictures are crap.

I am amused by the item itself:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **




I can understand using the phrase and graphics on a poster, paperholder, or bookmark.  But why would I want "Speak Friend and Enter" on a belt buckle?  Who would be speaking at that height level, and what exactly would be happening with my pants?   8O

Must be an attempt for somebody to get more that 99 cents per issue.

(I have a box of Dragons that I have been tempted to auction off by the pound).

I think I have a bid on something from that seller.  Hopefully I actually get what I supposed to be bidding on.  8O

Orc's Lair boxed set with no orcs; the orcs were scared off by the adventurers and left only their box behind.

Denizens of the Swamp boxed set with no denizens.  But there is a beholder, and that almost makes it worth buying.
