    I'm usually a little cautious with my posts - I really don't want to offend anyone - but thanks Jessehk.

    You may notice I also didn't post direct links to gauntlet pics or mention the name of the other forum. You can all find them if you really want.

    There's been so much controversy and arguement in the past that out of respect to everyone here, those that run this forum, retailers, and fans that visit this forum, I don't want to throw any logs on old fires.

    You will get one. I don't know how these people on ebay have so many, honestly. We usually get large shipments. We placed our order with UC the day they became available, and we placed a pretty large order. Our account rep was on vacation the week they came in, and she usually gets us extra (whatever other retailers cancel) so maybe thats why. But it sounds like BBB got a small shipment too, and I'm sure theirs are also usually large. I think our first shipment of the helms, 44, was probably larger than almost everyone else.


    Smaug, you'll get one shipped to you on Monday.

    Thanks Chris, I appreciate the follow-up. I thought I had pre-ordered this one earlier, but I remember now I was going to get the master replicas light up ring finger thing but canceled my order with them after I saw preview photos of it. Looks light cheap plastic. The ring looks cool, but overall I thought the gauntlet would be a better addition to my collection. I was actually suurprised these came in as soon as they did. Seems like UC is getting better at keeping their release dates closer to the mark and I thought I'd be getting one this time.
    I would appreciate any info you get on arrival time for the next shipment.
    Thanks again.

    Thanks so much Chris for the info! I hope they send you a similiar number like the one I got for Sauron's Helmet. You ARE the BEST :halo:

    Not to get off topic...but.....

    How are the Pre-orders for the High Elven Helmet, High Elven Shield, Isiludur's & Gondorian Infantry Helmet going?

    I have not pre-ordered any of them yet........(Christmas made funds not available), but I would like to know if there is a real urgency for me to do so before they are sold out. I'm sure the pieces that are limited to 5000 will be around for awhile, but I was wondering about the 2000 limited edition pieces. Are they selling out faster?

    Do you think any of the aforementioned items will be availble by March? I could get my b/f to get them for me for my birthday :)

    They are not in danger of selling out yet.

    No offense to those who have ordered this one, but to me the leather is ALL WRONG! The metal work is incredible, but what is with the brand-new looking racing glove on the inside?! Geesh, you may want to take it outside and scuff it up a bit, that way it will look like something straight out of Mordor! Hopefully this is just in the pictures that I have seen so far, there may still be hope.

    Well it needs to be wearable and thick/distressed leather wouldn't be as wearable (or as easy to mass produce).

    Perhaps if they had used a rough brown suede instead of the glossy black leather it might look more period. Still... you don't buy it to display the leather.

    Just got the Sauron Gauntlet number 62! Wow...very low number... !
    I like it very much, but it is a bit small for me!?
    Plus the fingers doesn't bend all the way they should, that means I cannot hold a sword with it.
    Does anyone else have these problems?

    Mine came today - #528. I have no problem bending the fingers on mine it is quite well articulated. Tough to get my hand in and out though, it's a little tight.

    Thanks Chris!
