Hello everyone, Matthew here from SkyRanger games. I wanted to pop by and make everyone aware that we're currently liquidating our immense, and I do mean immense inventory of X-COM games, books and collectible items. I cleaned out two former Microprose employees a decade ago after they shut down two of the major development studios, and as one of the gentlemen was from the marketing department I managed to amass quite probably the largest collection of X-COM games, books and collectible items in the world.

Our sale has been up on EBay for 3 days now, so unfortunately a lot of our rarest X-COM items are gone, but we do still have quite a few posters left, a couple of t-shirts, a mug, a decorative shirt pin, a popper figurine as well all of the games, strategy guides and the novel. As far as sealed games go we're sold out of factory sealed X-COM UFO Defense, but we do still have 40 factory sealed copies of Terror from the Deep and one sealed copy of X-COM Apocalypse left.

We are also selling our collection of rare Microprose collectible items. Included in this lot are the 1994 Microprose Holiday Party mug (the year they released X-COM UFO Defense) and the 1995 Microprose Holiday Party mug (the year they released X-COM Terror from the Deep).

We?ll be listing the remainder of our collection later today.

If anyone is interested, you can visit our website at: www.skyrangergames.com
Or you can visit our X-COM liquidation sale on EBay at: SkyRanger Games EBay Store

Conversely, I didn't have any trouble getting a copy of the Totally Unauthorized TFTD guide (for ... er, somewhat masochistic reading purposes whereby I can point my finger at a page and go "hah! that's not quite correct!") and a copy of Interceptor and the Interceptor OSG. Pricey and the shipping was far heftier than what I'm normally comfortable with, but I did get the items.

Did you do the purchases through eBay or directly? In either case, have you contacted the seller and what was the response?

Hey NKF

Yes, i purchased through ebay. It was one of his last real-time auctions. I purchased a huge lot of ToDs and X-Com novels and guides. I am one of biggest X-COM collectors here in Russia. For 180$ with shipping. Items were marked as "shipped" several days later. I asked for tracking as it was priority. he said "we do not leave reciepts". LOL. Then some ignorance and so on.... And then no reply at all yet he kept selling on ebay. I've emailed directly and through website and on ebay = no result. Oh and i missed paypal deadline as i was out of the country. So i am off money and items. I found his thread here and just thought i need to warn everyone.

I think you can rate the seller on ebay.

I usually get my xcom stuff off amazon's marketplace (Canadian and US site).

<I felt that this thread was slightly relevant to my request.. so I'm going to hijack/ressurect it.>



I've been a long time X-COM Apoc fan, playing it when I was a kid upon its initial release, then replaying it every four or five years when I got bored of all the new cookie cutter games coming out.

What I want is some sort of action figure or plaque or some thing that I can put in my office at work to remind me of my beloved X-COM.

I have seen a "popper figurine" out on the interwebs but I haven't seen much else that seems like it would be a good X-COM decoration. The only problem is that the popper figurine is not for sale anywhere!

Can anyone offer their assistance? Maybe you know of a different X-COM decoration that I might like? Or you know where I can buy a popper figurine?
