The prices on Amazon were lower.

LotRs was available for £70 when it came out.
CoH for £39.60
Silm. just came out for £42.
[=£151.60]

I didn't buy the Hobbit from Amazon, but I'm pretty sure it was available for around £40 aswell. Point is, you could have easily got a new copy (1st imp.) for <£50. Giving a total of <£200 (for a full new 1st imp. set). Seems like a pretty poor release.

I concede the point regarding US/UK releases (Deagol! ). I didn't check! However besides Amazon themselves I'm not sure if any small dealers would pay any attention to this (would they?).

Obviously money is the main issue though...
