Gleefully Gloating

Sometimes eBay can be a wonderful thing. Today is one of those days, though truth be told it was a few days ago that I scored big time by winning a 20 year worth collection of BattleTech books etc. I'm not going to link here to the eBay link as it will be eliminated at some point, and this blog serves as a more permanent place. However, I will list what I scored for the record, with particularly juicy items in bold italic.

The only reason there are not more highlighted items is that I already had things like the Tales of the Black Widow Company and Grey Death Legion already. However, I did some better condition copies of some items too, which was very nice.

Going away to gloat a bit more now, and fondle my Star League sourcebook.



  1. That's amazing! I've got about 2/3 of that, but that's an amazing collection.

    And a Kurita jumpsuit?? Got a picture?


  2. Nice Catch! Happy Gloating to you. :-)

  3. How much did it cost you? It is quite impressive!

  4. TimH: No picture yet of me in the Kurita jumpsuit, but I will have one taken as and when.

    StevenS: £450.00, about $675.00 dollars. I guess I'm broke for a bit, sorry about that.

  5. Sorry! What for? Haha, you've donated almost as much to the TRO project as that fellow in France! I just wanna see your face around for a long time, so keep yourself in good health. Spending your eating money on Star League sourcebooks and eating noodles for every meal is not a good way to do that, missy!

    Mind, you'll die of starvation, but from the looks of your collection, you'll die a happy woman....
