    I found this info on the web. According to them they have a list of the items that are going to be released this fall! If it's accurate then I'll be fighting with Anduril sometime this fall.

    What would those prices be in US currency?


    Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is accurate. But I guess we'll know for sure once Larry recovers and gets back here soon.

    No kids, that's a British Pounds sign, so multiply by 1.5 to get US Dollars. $300 for Gud Daedheloth? Hopefully they will be cheaper stateside!

    PS, I don't think you should edit out a link when it is dealing with news that is unavailable on BBB, only if it is advertising competing prices with BBB items. And this is just a notice of upcoming availability, so let's ease up on the censorship, eh?

    I'm sure we'll be able to find them less expensive. I got my Strider sword for quite a bit less than the retail price. I guess I shouldn't say how much otherwise I might get in trouble.

    I don't know if I can forget it. I've been deeply hurt Gûd Daedheloth. This will be a scar that will never heal.

    It is true...

    I just got back from the hospital today and read my email...

    These items will be available this fall from United:
    Herugrim-Sword of King Theoden
    Elven-Knife of Strider
    Anduril-Sword of Aragon(Reforged Narsil)
    Strider Sword Scabbard
    Daggers of Leqolas
    King Elendil Helmet
    Gimli Helmet

    Unfortunately they have not given us the spec sheets or official pictures yet.

    BBB will be set up to take pre-orders, most likely by tomorrow evening.

    Guys, I am going to take image down which refers to the pricing of the new products. This is one of the very few requests we ask our members not do here at FV, because BBB is the main sponsor.

    But I am going to explain why on this one.

    United authorized us to release the names of the items coming this fall, but they did not authorize us to release any pricing information. We do not even know what the actual MSRP will be yet, because we have not been give the official spec sheets.

    We refuse to approximate or speculate on what the pricing will be. We will post the actual pricing when we are given the correct information and are authorized to release it.

    Then and only then will we post our pricing, relative to the MSRP. Plus we will be honoring the 10% discount offered to all the membership here at FV as before. For instance Arwen has an MSRP (suggested retail price) of $310.99. But we retail it for $202.50. Plus the 10% membership discount on top ot that.

    Larry, do you have any idea of when you'll be getting the stat sheets or pricing info?

    Good point, Anduril. I didn't even notice that it was missing from the list till you said that. I'm not too worried, though. I never planned on buying it.

    The EWS, I think, is delayed until sometime next year. The scoop is that they found a more price effective way of making it, but it would take some extra time to get set up, thus the delay - thats basically the impression I got from a post a few months ago.
