            Congrats on the bust, Celaglar Do you have the bust of Arwen?

              No (not yet...). But I found Aragorn yesterday for only 15 euro so who knows what I will find next.

                Mithrandir85 How did you do it?
                Stig- Last year, I found that many of the rarest SW statues had come down from their once stratospheric prices so, I went shopping! There are two dealers, one out of New York and one in New Jersey, who’ve been dealing with Sideshow for many years- even before Sideshow became the powerhouse they are today. The sellers were listing them all on eBay!

                Between the two of them, I was able to get low numbers on nearly every statue, all brand new, and at some incredible prices; including their art boxes and in many cases, the shipper boxes as well. In the case of the dealer in Jersey, I was able to get prices much lower than their original retail! To make it even better, I saved even more because I was buying so many from him. He said he didn’t care about the low numbers and that he’d already made his substantial profits back when they were selling at huge premiums in aftermarket. He was just happy to be selling them to a die hard fan/ collector and he was most concerned about reducing his inventory; I actually went to meet him for a pickup one time- He has 4 different storage sheds packed to the brim! I drove back with a carload that day!

                To put the savings in context- I got the #1 ‘Battle Troll of Mordor’ and #1 ‘Legolas & Gimli on Arod’ for just over $100 each! Even now, he’s got #’s 5&6 of the Easterling Soldier for $100; I might get one because that is one of the few higher numbers in my collection. Amazing opportunity I came upon. STill spent a good amount but, nowhere near what I would’ve a few years back and I’ve wanted these things for 17+ now. I was ecstatic to finally have my chance! Luckily I already had the Cave Troll and Balrog- THOSE are still very expensive lol.

                  in our hobby its a matter of time to find the right opportunity. I hope one day to find a ssw balrog in good shape for a decent price.

                    You would be most welcome! His handle on eBay is ‘musicfan66’ and he’s got almost 7000 feedback, 100% positive. Has many great deals.

                    Very true- yes the Balrog is an amazing piece. I do hope you’re able to locate one as well. Do you have the Cave Troll in your collection by chance?

                        Oh, hello. New York, here I come



                        Some truly nice deals there, but the shipping kills it.
                        So it wasn't just kidding that going to NY could be a possibility. Just not right now.

                          You are right- that shipping can get to be really bad. I actually contacted him directly and scheduled to meet him on my way up from Florida in November, just so I could avoid that cost. And he gave me even better pricing after that because purchasing outside of eBay saved him a bunch in fees as well, so it was a win-win. That’s when I came back with a whole carload lol.

                          The dealer in NY prices his stuff a bit higher, especially for lower numbers but, he ships for free in the US- not certain about internationally. ‘Tmsamm’ is his handle.

                              Ah, for some of us outsiders (of North America) tend to be a bit more liberal with the US geography, so New York/New Jersey - same, same.

                                    Mithrandir85 , that is one heck of a list you have there. Many extremely low numbers and , what a collection.
                                    I can't thank you enough for placing everything in the same order as the registry, not sure I would have been able to get it done pre Flamies 2021, if you had not.
                                    I don't usually ask this question of members, but seeing that you have so many of the Medallion Collection I just want to make sure you do not have these two medallions vs missing writing them down on your list: #11 - Return of King Theoden and #15 - The Easterling,

                                    Again thank you so very much for placing your list in the order of the registry.

                                    All have been added.

                                      I am hoping that you meant Ringwraith on steed, as this is where I placed you number and name on the registry. Please confirm that I am right, or inform me that I am wrong, which ever it happens to be.

                                      All of your items have been added. I hope you enjoy your time here on the forum.
