Oh, and the Tolkien Society has the following listed as currently available:

"W. Britain's Hand Painted Cast Metal Collectable Figures - Accurate depictions of the film characters, ready made, hand painted, approx. 54mm. SOME no longer made, last few. 25% off!! (Prices listed include discount.)

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: Aragorn, Bilbo, Boromir, Galadriel, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Saruman, Orc overseer. Each. £15.50

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: The Hobbits (3); The Orcs (3); (NO longer made, running out fast.) Each. £38.75

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: Gandalf and the Balrog diorama. (Last few.) £119.50"

They usually charge retail, and shipping is included in the rate, so these are not quite accurate reflections of the original retail prices.

I did a quick search online and found this site that has about a dozen figures and images that might be useful. I also put a request into Britains for more information if they will give it to me.

I agree with alpingloin about how easy those bookplates look to be duplicated. With the instant price jump the original books saw, it is going to be very easy for others to try to capitalize for a quick dishonest buck.

I hadn't noticed the Yeltsin and Vonnegut bookplates last time I looked through his auctions. It seems unbelievable that eBay doesn't do something about sellers like this...

It was only a matter of time, given the $250-$300 that copies with bookplates are selling for this week.

Hi Trotter,

a Deluxe bookplated book has shown up on eBay now - looks to be from the family that was in front of you in line. Here is a quote from their auction: "only the first 8 people managed to get deluxe with book plate as they were put into books by staff at waterstones by mistake once in they could not remove so they had to sell like that so i was verry lucky"

Any feel for how many deluxe copies got bookplates from when you were there? The above quote feels mostly like hyperbole to get a higher eBay price to me.
