I bid on a few of them...

... and didn't win any. Once people do that automatic bidding thingy there's not much hope!

But I ALMOST had Silver until the very last second!!! >___<

It must be really frustrating to lose the auction at the last moment :(

Also, something I just realized...they made figures for nearly every single character in the 1978 film.  While for the miniseries, we're stuck with always the same five (Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, Clover and Woundwort).

Yeah, that's why the miniseries figures are available. I think Nemesis Now cancelled their products, Im very sad.

I got a copy of different version of the book. And I thought it would have images in it as well as that is what the description of the item on the store site said. But this is not the case at all...

@Inlé-roo I'll probably be sending Nemesis Now an email; I'll post the reply if I get one.

Chib, that appears to be false advertising; you should ask for a refund.

Well okay it has like four images for the four parts but the advertising made it sound like much more than that.

I bet if I did they'd say exactly that: it does contain images. Fool I was to assume more, I guess.

It does contain a small lapine glossary at the end tho

I think all editions have that glossary?

As for the images, that's still misleading :fiver2 As far as I know, there appear to be two editions that have more pictures: the 1976 illustrated edition Inlé-roo posted about, and another more recent one.

No, at least my 40th anniversary edition doesn't have it.

Oh yeah I saw that post: that edition looked very nice!


This is the version I bought. Oddly enough when I checked the description the mention of the images has gone...But there is still an artist listed. Strange.

Huh, weird...

Could it be the cover artist though?
(I'm not really impressed by the cover anyway...)

Maybe? But none of the other version have an artist listed..
There were much better covers to choose from.

I send them too and back in around April. They still "answering". We are not resellers just dirty peasant they won't waste their words to us. I think they just cancelled the products due to low interests.
