What part of the catalogue (if any) does this one go into, Steve?

By the way, it's not April 1st, is it?

Ahhh, um... Yes... NOW I remember. Merrily we went off to the con, out little fists clenched around a rough prototype of the merchants stamp, to gauge the public reaction to this new offering. From that point it was all a bit of a blur... There was this corset you see... and I was out numbered... All i remember was a sea if hands dipping in the lbe box... And then, suddenly, my precious was gone! I had been bewitched! And to be fair, said corset DID come back to offer to return said item, but for some reason it all went a bit blurry again. Thank goodness someone as responsible as Angels found it, on a totally different subject, I wonder how cara is getting on these days. *cough cough*

Sorry I fed you Incorrect info skaven... I has forgotten all about it! You see... There was this corset...

I have to challenge that comment Steve. Non-approved yes, but they certainly are DW - part of the trial designs for the original Merchants Guild issue.

I wasn't lucky enough to get any, but I did get a scan way back when. :D

These look fantastic - any more scans :?:
And to think these were just chucked on an envelope as an added extra :shock:
People would pay good money for prototypes :!:

Anyone got a time machine :wink: need to start collecting a few years before I did...

Funny looks from the people and you would have funny looks too. Of course if you want to be more realistic, use a wig.
I will be playing Thenardier at the Theatre royal in Margate, Kent from 24th July to 28th. If you are in the area at the time please click the link to get more info:

Actually, if you follow the link above to the old discussion, I believe there are a couple more scans. The TOAs were official enough for the shop to sell t-shirts of them, if I'm remembering correctly. :D And the whole "scorpion pit" thing was all in good fun and a great LBE to release. Again, if I'm remembering correctly, Colin gamely provided the mug shot himself. :lol: Pretty sporting :wink: considering he was not actually some rogue stamp producer, but on the official team for years before and after that.
