(This is copied and pasted from my original thread which kind of got away from me, but please note I only have one of these still available.)
So, I was at my local TRU and saw that they actually had this set in stock (marked up to TRU price of $39.99, of course) and thought I'd go ahead and get them for any Bricksetters that may be interested in one. Both boxes are in good shape, and I can provide pictures to anyone wanting them.
I wound up paying $42.39 apiece for them (after tax), so my offer is as follows for anyone that wants one (and I know this won't be nearly as attractive as getting one at Amazon, or even at normal retail, and for that I apologize) - $42.39+actual cost of shipping+the 2.9% of the total that PayPal will charge me on the transaction. For most people, this is probably going to work out to be right around $50 (unless you're out on the west coast, in which case shipping is probably going to be too prohibitive). The mailing ZIP would be 47305 and the package weight would be 1 lb. 6 oz. for anyone wanting to calculate postage over at USPS.com (and for any option where it's available, you can go by the online price).
If anyone absolutely WANTS to, I'd also be willing to trade one for two Uruk-Hai Army sets, so long as they're in very good condition and 100% complete, which could be a great deal if anyone happened to pick them up when they were heavily discounted, but probably not otherwise.
Lastly, I'd really prefer to sell these to two people who actually want the set, as that was my goal when I picked them up. That said, I'm running with the honor system on that point. If you want to say the set is for your personal use and then turn around and sell it, I'll probably never know anyway.
Also, in line with the 'personal use' goal, please don't offer to buy both of them yourself. Additionally, I don't know how enticing this offer will actually appear to most of you, but just on the off chance it's going to be wildly out of control, please post your offers here and assume that if there are four or more on the table, it's probably safe to stop.
Any questions, just let me know.
It is this occasional gesture that makes a difference. Josh, this will sell in no time. How that blind geezer hasn't yet snatched it yet is a mystery.
Ok, um... come to my secret volcano lair, I have a... um, gift to give you... yes...
On topic - These have both now been sold. Thanks to all who were interested.
