LOL, we seem to have gone through the exact same analysis with reguards to aquiring the new sharks. I'm still mad they put an alligator in Loot Island instead of a shark. Anyways I'm kind of holding out hope that they'll put a shark in a cheaper Pirates set sometime in the future. And heck, as long as I'm indulging myself in pleasant fantasies, maybe they'll even put one in the rumored Pirates Advent Calendar! And maybe it will be available in the US! aaaand . . . I guess this is where the flying pigs come in.
EDIT: Ha! Right after I typed the above post, I logged into Flickr and found this on my home page:http://www.flickr.com/photos/benlego/3470964052/
Looks like we're getting a sawfish with the advent calendar. Which I guess is cool in a better-than-nothing sort of way.
