I was wondering what other items are out there that must have been ridiculously expensive to produce at the time.

The two that stick out in my mind are Catapult Run by Fantasy Factory:

and this set of RPG books that I just listed called World Action and Adventure:

These are just unbelievable to me. Although it seems to be the norm nowadays, this set of 3 books seem to be produced is small quantities but are all hardcover books with full colour covers from 1985. Doing a quick check online, I can find 6 copies or more of each book on Amazon but I can't think of anyone who would be looking for them so I'm sure they have just piled up there.

Anyone know any others that probably broke the bank?

AEG's World's Largest Dungeon couldn't have been cheap to produce. International Team's products were expensive when they were released, so I can only conclude that they weren't cheap either.

Release sale price would be a reasonable place to start looking. The very large wargames would be candidates, too. Tom could speak to that better than I could.

Have you read the World Action and Adventure books yet? I haven't seen them myself, but didn't Heroic Worlds rate them as the second worst RPG of all time after Spawn of Fashan? Very Happy

Wilderlands of High Fantasy box set put out by Necromancer Games only netted them $1 on each box set if all sold (which I believe they have).
