TOPIC: It's like I won the Dwarven Forge eBay sweepstakes

It's like I won the Dwarven Forge eBay sweepstakes 3 Years, 3 Months ago  
So a couple weeks ago, I am browsing eBay for terrain accessory items and do all the various searches. Then I try "modular dungeon", and up pops one listing with a very poor photo of the demon head gate from Wicked Additions along with some Cavern pieces and some room walls and floors. Absolutely no mention of Dwarven Forge in the listing title or description, just that there are over a hundred pieces and you could make several rooms. So of course I bid. And won! Now I would not normally crow about this as I prefer to buy from Dwarven Forge directly but I look at this as the gods of chance smiling on me. So please forgive my overjoyed zeal.
For the price of $165 US, which included shipping, I received today:

Wicked Additions 1, minus the portcullis and four red pillars.
Wicked Additions 2, minus the four short pedestals
Caverns Set, minus the small and large flat rocks, crystals, stalagmites, and water rocks.
Ogre's Den, minus the portcullis and treasure pile.
Deluxe Rooms Set, minus the secret door and all the torches
Narrow Passages Set, minus the two dead end corridor pieces and two of the doors.
6 x 6 floor tiles, two each
4 x 6 floor tiles, two each
6" straight wall, two each
6" straight wall, two each but these are broken and only one is completely repairable. The other is missing one of the broken bits.
Corner wall piece
Also 15 pieces from another Narrow Passages Set. Not bad,eh?

The best I ever did was winning the treasure and item set for $20 with shipping about six months ago because there was no mention of dwarven forge in the listing.

very nice haul indeed. I think I paid $120 for my treasure and item set alone. Alas, sometimes I get too caught up in winning an auction, rather than getting a good deal. It is particularly painful on the wallet when two people get caught up in winning, causing the price to skyrocket- painful for the buyer, a wonderful windfall for the seller.

The market price for that has to be north of $600? I'm not sure how missing pieces impact price.

I grabbed 9 skeleton swordsmen, archers, and troops for about $10 back in June, again no mention of dwarven forge. Seemed like a good deal to me :)

Since one just went for $158 on ebay, that is an exceptionally nice score!!
