How'd everybody do in the latest round of ebay auctions? So many good LDs, so little money.

I ended up with Laughing Target (ID2234CT) and Grave of the Fireflies (ID2231CT)

Would've completed my Rumik World collection with Maris the Chojo, but I was sniped at the last few seconds :x . Guess it gives me something to look forward to.

Hey Yazorin, were you able to get Mermaid Forest finally?

I nabbed Grave of the Fireflies a couple months ago. Still haven't watched it yet, as I'm waiting for a few friends to watch it.

I won the first Patlabor movie, and it arrived today!

A nice liner note book, with the disc:

That, sir, is a good purchase.

It still boggles my mind that VHS beat out laserdiscs. I have never seen VHS packaging of a movie/series/collection that comes CLOSE to that level of beauty.

I got Totoro, you're under arrest 1 and 2 (been looking for 2 for a while so that was exciting) Gall force 1 and 2, dominion tank police and gunsmith cats 1 and 2. Seller checked gunsmith cats a before shipping it. It had some rot and next thing I know I got a message saying I was getting a refund and the discs got thrown in with the shipment anyway. And a bonus DVD of gasaraki vol 2 and some halloween candy and a Totoro pin all as bonuses. Best experience I've had with eBay ever.

Quite a haul. I've got one or two auctions before when I got a small bonus, but nothing like what you got. And Halloween candy to boot!
