New Hobbit: DoS Polybag Set

Postby Clavius » Wed Dec 11, 2013 9:46 pm

I hadn't seen this mentioned before so I'm guessing it's new. I found this at a TRU in Windsor Ontario Canada this afternoon. I actually live across the border just North of Detroit but I hop across every now and then.

If anyone in Canada or the States could obtain me a few of these, I would be eternally greatful, and I have plenty of polys to trade in return (or cash!).

Yeah, I need a whole mess of these... but I don't wanna go to TRU!

I bought 8 of these when they were on TRU.com (first 4 when they were full price, second 4 when they were BOGO50). A painful amount to pay for polybags but selling 2 of them on ebay recouped the amount that I had spent on all of them, so I'm thankful for that - all about striking when the anvil is hot, as the first and third LTG polybags sold on ebay, I was able to get about $25 net profit on each one of them; now they sell for about $12 a pop.

I'd really love to be able to get another half-dozen IRL at the store and not have to pay shipping so I can army build a solid squad. Given the fearmongering about no 3rd LOTR wave over at Eurobricks, I'm anticipating that we may never be able to build the ultimate army of Man - Gondorian Warriors - so I'm keen to build up some Lake-Men in lieu of that.

This is by far the best polybag Lego has put out for the Tolkien line - I got like 8 or so of the Mirkwood Elf, but he pales in comparison to the visually appealing design of the Lego Lake-man. Honestly, only a few things could top this at this point in my book for the Free Peoples: a polybag for a Gondorian, Noldor, Numenorean, or armored Mirkwood Elf from TDOS.

Awesome. Cheapest way to get flat silver arms, I really want one or two of these.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

I'd love to find some of these. They sold out online really quickly (naturally) so next time I should bite the bullet and pay that price. These are way better than the Mirkwood Elf polybags from last year which are lame compared to the new Mirkwood elf in the new sets.

Last I checked my TRU didn't have them. I'm in the middle of the country, so maybe it will eventually come here??? We aren't always so lucky.

TRU in Ottawa had ~ 8-12 of these as of 4:00pm on Dec 17th, if anyone in the area is looking.

eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

Thanks for the tip! Two coworkers ordered Y-Wings and I was able to piggy-back with one of this (as I already have the Y-Wing).
