I unloaded some that I got into at $20 during the Amazon BOGO sale earlier this year, will be looking to load back up during the winter clearance. 

 

Are these still available near you?  I can't find them at Walmart, Target, or TRU.

Was thinking the same thing...online sales will be the only way to get these....tru may have them but they're priced 34.99 so will take quite a bit to get them to clearance type pricing. Still a great set and yes...with $20ish buy in you'll triple your money in time.

I found one at Target last night that looks like it must have been returned because it was the only one left and there were no other Hobbit wave 2 sets on the shelf.  It rang up just under $11 so of course I bought it.

This is now OOS shipping Jan 15th on Shop at Home.  It is gone at every retailer around here.  I wonder if this is the last stock and it will soon be sold out for good just like Lake-town Chase?  I might have to buy a few and a Star Wars magnet to qualify for the promos.  I don't know that this will last long enough to be discounted.

I hope not - was really hoping to score a few more for my personal collection. If it is though, that will change my timing for buying the 3rd wave sets. If that Lonely Mountain set is only around for a year, it will be gold (pun intended).

Bought this set and it sort of sounds like there might be loose pieces inside, kind of hard to tell. Has anyone who has built this set let me know if there are supposed to be loose pieces?

Thanks.

Also how different are set weights between the same sets? Mine all seem to be different from the ones listed on BP!

Far as loose pieces go, there should only be the little box for the cape and the tan plate you can see here. The Warg is not loose and would be in its own plastic bag but the reviewer I found this image from already built it before taking the shot.

Thanks. Might do a return just in case. The seals look intact...it might just be me being paranoid but with all the scams going around, why chance it.

"Better safe than sorry" has always been a good guideline in life I think. I can't really offer much advice (over the net since I can't actually shift the set and listen for myself) but if the box sounds as though too many pieces are hitting the insides of it instead of the bags themselves moving about then you may be right to not take a chance.
