Anyways, if you don't need your Tontos, I could take one off your hands.
I will part with a Tonto for $500 each. Do you want two of them or three perhaps. :)
Now, the one thing that really calls this set's price into question for me is #70006 Cragger's Command Ship. It was released this year for the same price as this set and with just as many minifigures, but with a total piece count of 609, giving it the very best price per piece of any set to ever use this hull. I can't exactly figure why the price per piece would be so different between these sets. Certainly the Coast Guard Patrol has other large pieces like the 8x5x2 white windscreen/slope element, the two 2x4x6 mountain bricks, the four 2x4x5 half-cylinders, the large motorboat hull, a number of assorted large plates, and the pre-assembled 2x8x2 windscreens. But Cragger's Command Ship has its own collection of large parts including eight 6x6 quarter-circle slopes, two 3x12 curved slopes, and two dinghys. It could be that the big motorboat hull is more expensive than its size would make it appear — I do know a sketch model of a lion motorboat using this hull was rejected in favor of the two lion jetskis — but I doubt that's the be-all and end-all of it. Perhaps since it is a Chima set, Cragger's Command Ship's cost is subsidized by the inflated price of the Speedorz sets.
I don't know, just spit balling here...
