This set looks awesome to me. Green hood, great torso, small tree, uncommon chalice, and mushroom that is < BF's but still nice, are all excellent. I think it is going for $5.

I must find and purchase! Has it been located at places such as Target? I think if I find it there this week it will be acquired, looks awesome.

Oh, I'm going to keep an eye out for this... I'm not usually interested in the little polybags but this one looks nice!

The article says it is at TRU. I am hoping they show up at Target since I have soured on TRU, but regardless, I plan on finding them. At $5 a piece, I'd like to grab a few. The limit to buy online is set at 5. The torso appears to be the same as the Legolas from the Mines of Moria set. That means the torso has no flesh colored print. :)

Those look like a great deal, and yes with some nice pieces.
I wonder who I can get to scout for those - for me ... which one of my kids can I bribe ...?

Went to TRU today, these were not in the store yet and according to the young woman at the customer service desk they were not showing up anywhere. She said they may end up as in store promos or some such. Looks like if people want them, and want them now, it may be best to order them online.

I picked up one last night fro TRU and love it. I can't wait for the dark green hood to be more available. I pretty much avoid TRU these days, but I had to see if they had these. The one thing I did see that made me sick was the increased price jump TRU has now on other items. What used to be $1 more has now become $4 or $5. Looks like I will be searching for most my LOTR parts on BL.

OH! I completely forgot about this thread! I was able to find some on Black Friday at my local TRU. Picked up three: one for parts, one to keep sealed, and one extra (the extra ended up going to one of the guys who works at the LEGO Store). The hood is great, and I'm always a fan of barrels and cups that aren't mugs.

I agree QB, the markup at TRU is crazy. There are days when I am in there and really can't understand how people are shopping for LEGO there when there is a LEGO Store right across the street. If it wasn't for their exclusive polybags and their retention of retired sets I would NEVER go in there.
