    Never purchased from them before are they reputable?

      To be honest, it was my first purchase from them. Based on that transaction, I have only good things to say. Good price, extremely inexpensive shipping, very well packaged (even though Weta statues have an external shipper, they placed THAT in another sturdy box with lots of plastic bubble packing), and timely processing/shipping. From purchase to delivery it was 6 days. Keep in mind that when I ordered the statue was "in stock." I think it's listed as a pre-order now . . .

                  I've use BBTS mostly now, as I can't afford the shipping costs that Weta wants.
                  So far I have had no issues, hope it stays that way.

                    The reason why i ordered Arwen on Asfaloth from Weta was the Vanderstelt art print when you have ordered the Ringwraith at the Ford from Weta too.
                    The prices from dealers are much lower than from Weta is.
                    Poor Arwen does not seem to be so popular, I like the statue so much.

                      I've only had one order from BBTS, and it was a flawless experience.

                        For those who wanted a better deal on it that Weta’s own, EE has Arwen & Frodo on Asfaloth for $399 and free US shipping while it lasts! Score!

                          Nice price! Should I be concerned about the amount of weight being placed on the back legs of the horse? I'm concerned that it'll end up cracking.

                            Mine stands pretty steady, I do not fear it will crack.

                              Same with mine. Perfectly stable. The statue feels well balanced.

                                So what are the chances this will be put up on a reverse auction in the next days?

                                  I don't suspect it, as she is in another deal.

                                    Given that it's already sold out in the EU, I'd say chances are good.

                                    Oh wait, it's NOT sold out in the EU warehouse!

                                      Is that not true for the Elves and Dwarves which went up yesterday?

                                        No because the revers action was for the matching pair. Just my thoughts

                                          Thanks for that information. I think for most people its six of one and a half-dozen of the other.

                                          I was speculating since WETA is determined to clean house and go to their new models in selling to the public. I know I would but the piece at perhaps $300 - 350 if it ever got down that low.
