Yeah, I saw this item too. In fact, I was watching it just to see if it sold. The auction ended without a sale and the seller has relisted it. I couldn’t believe the price when I first saw it.
Did anyone check out the game pieces? They look pretty cool but are quite a bit bigger than A&A pieces. He has some pics comparing them. The factories are HUGE. A lot of the land pieces, particularly infantry and AA guns, are on these big bases the size of poker chips. In fact, you are supposed to use poker chips for stacking purposes. You would need such a huge map to handle all of those larger pieces. The aircraft carrier piece he showed next to an A&A aircraft carrier and it dwarfed the A&A piece. The ships are almost as big as the A&A Miniatures pieces, but not quite.
I wouldn’t mind having a copy of that game just to check it out but not at $1250. Maybe if I were a millionaire with money to throw away, but unfortunately I’m a simple working stiff.
