Treasures and Magic Item Set on eBay 3 Years, 3 Months ago  
OK, my stop limit was $140 all in with shipping. It went for $158.02 (I love the two cents worth!) plus $6.95 shipping.
I hope that I lost to a fellow forum member............
Any lucky winner out there?

Hi Arcarius,

For me, above $ 80 it was crazy ... then $ 150 .....??...!!!

I have not seen this product on the site. No restock ? Really ended ?? If yes, it's really pity :(

Soon

For something sold 40 buck I don't understand indeed.
I had the luck a DF fan sold me one treasure set "new" for 40€ including postage & package.
So if there's a public demand what is waiting for DF to release it again then ?
It's not something "collector" isn't it ?
And the basic dunjeon line including accessories must be always available.
Time to vote !

WOW that's a lot of money for a $40 retail set! I could have sworn that at some point in the recent past Stefan or Jeff mentioned that they had a guest artist working on a new sculpt for a treasure set... Not that I have a link to this potentially imagined thread of course.

Arcarius, That was me that won the auction (yes, I am probably insane). I've just started getting in to Dwarven Forge and so am in need of many of the discontinued sets for variety. By my math I just payed over $7 per item in the set, so I'm not so sure I was the 'lucky' winner :)

Granpappy, thanks for the link! I am now going to be either very happy or very disappointed when the new shipment comes in Nov/Dec.

And as a side note for those that have been curious in a separate thread, I was one of the two bidders that took the Cavern set over $400 (I didn't win). I'm now happy I didn't win since the price was so insane and it appears that there is a good chance caverns will be restocked in the next shipment [I have no cavern sets and really wanted at least one for some initial dungeons].

At least the treasure set you got will still be a collector's item since the new set seems like it will be very different (egyptian/mesopotamian theme, plus standard gold piles and stuff too).

Definitely wait for the cavern sets to come in. They are AMAZING, but to pay that kind of money is ridiculous, especially when you consider they are still an item DF stocks. These things seem to go in cycles- sets will be out of stock for what feels like an eternity when you really want one, but patience pays off and they eventually come back in. DF is such a niche company that they can't keep all items in stock all the time. The best way we can keep them going strong is by being patient and going to ebay mostly for items that are out of print (ogre's den, traps, treasure set, for example), rather than items that are temporarily out of stock.

Congrats on the win, Random! And I echo granpappy's sentiment. Ebay is good for out of "print" stuff, better to buy everything else through Dwarven Forge. If you are really wanting some cavern stuff, check out the 4 small caves, the edge piece from the lake set, and the cavern intersection with chasm. All of these are available as separate pieces and with a bit of imagination, are still useful without the full cavern set. Also, that intersection and caves are from the cavernous passages set. Not sure if that will be restocked anytime soon.

Oh and of course, there is their excellent customer service. Those few occasions when I see someone post about a problem with a new piece, Jeff or Stefan are on it right away. Sending replacement pieces is something a seller on ebay just can't do.

you guys don't need to sell me on buying from dwarvenforge.com first :) I did poor research when I was bidding on the cavern on ebay and was thinking there was a good chance they would never get back in stock (or at least not for 6 months). DF just made a decent chunk of cash on me in the last week and I definitely want them to continue to do what they do so well! Also, I have already purchased several of each of the items that Arcarius mentioned and they will be here with the rest of my order tomorrow, although I'm sure they will just make me want a complete cavern set even more.

Don't worry, that is a completely new Treasure set. I think the old one really is gone gone gone :-(
