Well, I was on the fence about getting this, so I'm okay taking the risk.  My money should be protected from Paypal, so all I have to lose is pre-order status.  If it falls thru, I'll just continue to wait for a better deal once they're released.   ;)

Paypal protection is only good for 45 days that I know of, it's a November release so it might be towards the month end & cutting it close. Screw Paypal, if paid via CC then call the CC company for a charge back. I'm sure you will get the set tho, I just stay away from the bay preorders.

Just checked my pre-order with HLJ and it still says November release but no specific date. Are they released on the 23rd like the website updates?

Niiiiiiice score.  Knew I should have waited on this one.  I think mine came to about $40 shipped as a pre-order, but I haven't heard any word of it shipping yet.   :P

Man, that's a pretty damn good deal. I have not heard from HLJ thus far but should be soon.

I've just picked up the same deal, he has 7 left still to sell. I didn't think this set would sell so cheaply so quickly on ebay so I just cancelled my HLJ pre-order so I won't have to pay import tax to the UK  ;D.

Just looked at ebay to see how many sets this seller had left. He must have quite a few because he has sold 17 since yesterday and still has more. Dare I say we might see even lower prices on this set. Could this be a trend for future 2 packs? Let's hope so.

Could but I'm sure she'd see through it, being an accountant and all. She and I had a disagreement over my collecting habits this weekend.  ::)
