It's a set of 27 (says 25) pre-rolled T&T characters, printed on a dot-matrix printer. Each sheet is about 5.5" long x 8.5" wide.



It's FB product 8402. The outer envelope is in rough shape, but interior is near mint.

Hold the phone. That set has gone for up $30! It is relatively hard to find.


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

Put it on eBay and watch it sell for $100+ like the (last) one did. Albeit that was in very good condition; almost as good as the $2 copies, probably.



I was very surprised to see those still available new at the (presumed) original price.

Yes, sounds like a "nice to have", indeed. :)

*blinks at the appearance of that $30 comment*



Did you try ordering more at $2 and find they weren't available?





(Hrmm... thought it was $100+. May be mistaken..).

Well, I only paid $3.35 + tax, so I don't much care if it's actually valuable or not  :lol:    It'll eventually make it's way to my store if it is, since I picked it up as a curio, and would rather see someone who actually wants to collect it enjoy it, heh.



Of course, if I can actually make a profit in the process, well, that's not so bad :P

I emailed T&T and heard back from Rick Loomis, who said they're still printing them...   and still using the old dot-matrix to do it!  :lol:



So no value to this product, other than as a neat curio. Which, to be honest, I'm sorta glad of, since it means I won't feel bad keeping it :P

David, it was indeed $100+.  In fact, I think it went for over $200, if you're thinking about the auction a few months ago.



I've got an unopened set if anyone wants it.

Hrm, I can't find it using Terapeak. Searching "Tunnels Trolls" in the Games category turns up nothing over about $30 since June.

I dug this out of the interesting non-tsr items on Ebay thread from back in May. It went for $103.50. 8O

Ah, yup. That's the set I've got. My envelope is beaten to heck though ;)



That's pretty crazy. Thanks for the info. I think I'll probably end up giving it to my cousin, she's sorta into T&T. Or I'll keep it myself :P



Or I could sell mine for $38593, since it's a rare 27-run version!



... or not ;)

Cheers, Brian! I was being lazy.... :roll: Wasn't far off the price, though.



I'm certain that none of the bidders had a clue it was still $2 for a brand new set! (And I certainly wouldn't have guessed much less than $10 even had I known they were still available!).

*EEP!* That's generous, Stephen! :)

And you are well aware how much shipping costs are...



Thank you! :D



Several times I was tempted to order a set.

Love the bit about them still using the same (9-pin?) dot matrix printer. :P

*YAY!*
I missed a couple of packets when I was round at the postal depot catching up on my backlog at the weekend. This was one of them! :)

Very neat, Stephen, and the cover artwork certainly fits well!
Not bad for $2(!); just a pity about the postage over the pond (*ouch* :?)

Thank you, once again; and for the bonus material (*reads*). :D

David,
Look for the opened set of T&T character sheets in your mail within the next week to week-and-a-half.  They went out airmail today, reinforced, "DO NOT BEND", "THE QUEEN IS A MAN", etc.

Enjoy!  :D
