    I know it say's details are coming soon for the staffs on the BBB website, but I've been waiting ages for the staffs, and was wondering if anyone knew anything on them. I'd like to know when they're going to be available for shipping/ and pre-ordering, roughly how much they're going to cost, and how much it'll be to ship it to the UK (if this options available - which I do hope). Thankyou.

    my local retailer (uk based) claims the white staff will be in their possesion sometime in January, and they've always been on the mark in the past so fingers crossed

    Yeah I have seen a UK site, which are by no means very cheap, which is taking pre orders. Though the staff seemed fairly cheap (price wise, to be honest). Maybe that was a deposit/pre-order price but it wasn't a round figure which has made me think otherwise.

    Ah very good... That's new. I looked a couple of days ago and that wasn't there.

    I'll be interested to see BBB's price. The RRP is a lot higher than I thought it would be...

    I think Saruman's staff would be more of interest to me personally. They look good though!! :D

    Just kind of curious if swordsman, Kit, or anyone else knows or has heard anything about the release dates of these staves other than "2004" ... They both look really great, (although I was kinda pulling for a UC Gandalf the Grey staff!) :D

    The advertisment for the staffs are now in the fall 2003 lotr Weapons and Armour catologe. Along with the offical specifications. United has not yet sent the official text or pictures to the dealers. As soon as they do this we will begin to take pre-orders. I am not as certian as HybridK03 about a January shipping date. I know it will be soon however because they would not have started to advertise them if they were not about ready to start to distribute them.

    I've been waiting for Gandalf's White staff since I found out about the weapon repros. While I'd have fun going to toll bridges and telling people they won't pass through with a Grey staff, I really want to learn how to project a beam of light from my White staff.

    I just talked to steve brown and he informed me that he has had our stock or orer for the tow staffs, Saurman's & Gandalfs White Stff, on order for a month now. Hopefully we will get them in without haveing to go thru pre-order steps.
