    And back to the "Rare" topic. I find it quite annoying when you see items listed as "RARE" for outrageous prices when you can clearly find the same or similar thing for normal prices. I will use an example here by pointing out the listings for LEGEND OF THE RANGERS: TO LIVE AND DIE IN STARLIGHT. Yes some of those listings might be for the original print run, but now that Warner Archive has re-issued it I don't think you can consider original print run DVDs all that rare and I would hate to see people over pay for something B5 related that isn't really "RARE". Yes I think it is fine that one pay a little more to get the original print run, but some of those prices are ridiculous and I would hate to see a fan get burned. I do admit that an original print run disc might be a little more durable than a re-issue DVD-R from Warner Archive, but I don't believe those prices justify having something that is slightly more durable. Sorry those of you out there might be trying to rake in a bunch of cash on those.

        Ah, marketing! :-) What a timeless con. I remember in the 80's going to a flea market and seeing a vendor selling "Very Old" bottles for a few bucks a piece. I don't know if it's still the case, but back then Grolsch Lager was sold in an amber bottle with a ceramic stopper and bailing wire. This vendor's very old bottles included a number of Grolsch bottles. He didn't appreciate it when I told him you could get the bottle filled with a pretty good lager for less than he was asking.

        :-D

        • Ahhhhh Grolsch. that brings memories. One of the staples of my student days which didn't leave much money for any of the others.

          • Just came accross that Ebay announce :
            https://www.ebay.com/itm/Babylon-5-a...K/163434037514
            and this one from the same seller (who doesn't seem to know that the book is still available at B5Books) :
            https://www.ebay.com/itm/ENCOUNTERS-...C/163435611886

            I just wanted to point out the comment at the end of both descriptions, that made me really laugh !

            "
            SO, IF YOU INTEND TO WAIT ME OUT FOR A LOWER PRICE, YOU OR I MIGHT DIE BEFORE THAT HAPPENS. "
            It sounded a lot like a Londo-style comment to me.

              The only good thing about that B5-20 is that the shipping is included which is likely to be high.

                • I finally managed to get my hands on a copy of Dining on Babylon 5 for a more or less reasonable price. It did have the smell of being stored a bit to humid though, but that can hopefully be taken care of. Still, great fun to finally get it

                  • Congratulations! Have you made anything yet? Or what would you like to try first?

                      Alas, I got it just last week so I have not even had the time to look through it.
                      But making a dish for the B5 anniversary next month would be fitting I think

                        Depends on which anniversary you want to celebrate. "The Gathering" will have its 26th anniversary Feb. 22 but "Midnight on the Firing Line" has its 25th anniversary on Jan. 26.

                        • I'd say 25 years sounds more serious. But unpacking my VCR and watching the Gathering would be fun as well.

                          • For anybody who just can't wait for JMS' autobiography, "Becoming Superman", there's one included in this auction:
                            https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Memoir-...frcectupt=true

                            Me? Why I found one this morning for sale all by itself and snapped it up, of course! I'm not that altruistic! Now I have to wait for it to come Media Mail...

                            • Is it already out for sale, or is this review copies you think?

                              • Definitely Advance Reader Copies. A few people have posted on Twitter that they had gotten them so I had a search on Ebay because a lot of people sell them even though they're not supposed to.

                                ETA: They are available for pre-order but the release date is still July.
