Orthanc isn't meant to expand, but it'd look awesome with a couple of it cobbled together.  It's not quite as big as I'd like, but it's still sizable.

Just in case anyone is looking for the Pirate Ship Ambush set from LOTR: Return of the King - it's on sale this week at Toys R Us for $90.99 - it's normally $119.99 and sells on Lego Shop@Home for $99.99.

Walmart has it on their site for $90.30 and Target has it on their site for $90.99 - not sure if those are the regular prices or not - or if they've reduced their prices to match Toys R Us.

Pirate Ship was $70 on clearance at many Targets over the Summer (where I got mine) and I believe the same price at Amazon during the recent sales they've had over the holidays which have now sailed at this point.

I paid $70.99 for the Pirate Ship back in November, I don't think it is being retired yet...might be worth waiting a bit

Yeah I'd bite at that price in a heartbeat...  I want it, but part of me doesn't want it THAT bad since it's a massive spacehog.

It is, but it's downright miniscule compared to the Imperial Flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge and Black Pearl.

I think I got mine for like $65 from Amazon in November/December.

Entertainment Earth has both the Uruk-hai Army and Gandalf Arrives sets listed as "Coming Soon" - so they must have picked up some close-out or something, I ordered something else for my wife so I threw two of the Uruk-Hai Army set and one of the Gandalf Arrives set into my cart - fingers crossed that they actually get these in.

That leaves me with just the Orc Forge for the 2012 Box Sets. Still trying to decide what to do re: the Poly Bag Mini figs....

Had $7 in Kmart rewards and got another $5 worth that were expiring tomorrow. Hit my local Kmart on the way home and ended up getting the Pirate Ship Ambush set (the only set they had that I already didn't). It was on sale for $76 so factor in the rewards I got it for $64 and change and that included tax. Not as good as some of you were able to do, but still not a bad price.

Picked up over the weekend (via eBay)

The Orc Forge ($64 - including shipping)
2x Uruk-Hai w/ballista in polybag
2nd Age Elrond mini-fig in polybag

Once I receive these AND my pre-order from Entertainment Earth for the Uruk-Hai Army and Gandalf Arrives sets - I'll be down to just needing the Tower of Orthanc & Frodo w/Cooking Corner polybag set.

Picked up the Tower of Orthanc on Friday to bring my Lego LOTR collection one more step closer to being "complete".

Got it with double VIP points so I'll have a good amount of rewards bucks to put towards the Sandcrawler next month.
