Any idea what one of these would go for these days? I can't find any recent auctions on eBay to gauge.

Which of the two releases? One of them is more rare than the other, as I recall from reading about it. Either way, my guess is about $120, but I'm guessing...

Link to release info

I see you responded in that thread, implying the more common one. I'd still say $120, and around $180 for the other one, possibly more. Possibly less, too.

When I've mentioned the DVD from time to time, I've almost always been asked if it's still available:  my gut says that there's pent-up demand for one of these, so it could sell nicely, David, especially if you auction it and get a few folks who really want it involved....

You may want to be a bit careful selling this.  I seem to recall that Ian had a cease and desist selling this item from GW (I think).

Mars is correct.  I couldn't find anything but admittedly I didn't search very well, but I do remember this being mentioned a few years back.

Which, arguably, makes it even more valuable.

Right, but if I can't sell it. . . . :P I don't think I'll put it up on eBay. I'd rather do a private sale. I just wanted some idea of what it was worth before I put a price on it.

So, is Serleran accurate? $120? I'd be more than happy to let it go for that price.

Its been a very long time since I have seen one of these in open auction but I sold my extra copy a year or so ago for $100 privately.  You could always try $120 or $150 and see what happens.

Since you have nothing to lose initially, I'd start high:  $175 perhaps.

I e-mailed their lawyer a while back and tried to get them to confirm what the issue was with me selling the product. They wouldn't clarify the situation but pointed out that I could be handling stolen property.

I posted it over at the Dragonsfoot Classifieds for $125.00. I don't think I would feel right asking more than that.

Hi guys. I still have some of the DVDs. GW threatened to sue me and eBay removed my eBay auctions when I tried to sell my first batch. I sold a chunk of my remaining stock to DMWhitfield and sat on the rest for a rainy day.

<ADDED>

From what I understand, there are two disk images. One is of a dead astronaught crawling away from his ship. The other is of a stick thin alien standing in a barren landscape. The data and boxes are identical. The dead astronaught is the common one, and the alien is the rare one.

Curiously, in the CD version of the archive, both images form disks one and two of the set, so I can only imagine it was a printing error that saw disk two being used for DVDs.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.
