Why no "For Sale" tab for 10229: Winter Village Cottage?

There is no "For sale" tab on http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=10229-1 . I realize this is a [email protected] exclusive, but it still would be nice to see the prices for all countries in one grid, as with the other sets.

    I'm seeing one. What country are you in?

    It's not added to the Bargain Watch listings yet - I'm taking a breather after all that Duplo - but it'll be added in due course.

    I'm in Belgium. I still don't see one, BTW: http://imgur.com/hSKkY

    I can't comment on the absence of a 'For Sale' tab - that's one for @Huw

    Regarding the Amazon Bargain Watch listings, the set hadn't previously been added as none of the EU Amazons nor Amazon.com sell it - just third parties who are asking silly prices. That having been said, I've now added the set to the Bargain Watch database 'by popular demand' so it'll start appearing on the listings going forward, although I doubt there'll be too many takers at the price being asked....

    I believe it's not showing for you because there are none for sale for shipping to Belgium. Now dr. D has added it to the amazon list it should show those prices soon.

    AFAIK this set has been available via [email protected] to BE at the same time as most other countries, it was available at least at the time of my original post. As proof that it is now: http://imgur.com/iZQ3u (you can see Belgium as the region in the upper right corner) + http://shop.lego.com/en-BE/Winter-Village-Cottage-10229 (one of the results @ http://search2.lego.com/exec/?pt=&lang=2057&cc=BE&q=10229 ).

    I do see a "For sale" tab now, and BE is actually one of the countries in the grid.

    I never said anything about the Bargain Watch page, though I'm a bit surprised that there needs to be so much human involvement in adding a set. I would have thought that this would be automatic: you'd simply query Amazon using a couple of generic terms (e.g. "LEGO City") and parse the first couple of pages of results. Most Amazon listings include the set number so that can easily be parsed out of the title, etcetera. At most you'd need to add a new query once LEGO starts a new theme -- and even that could be automated i.e. you simply loop through all themes (though perhaps there could be a flag on older themes that would prevent them being included in such queries, just to reduce the amount of queries).
