I'm kind of hoping Amazon.co.uk list it, accidentally, for a silly price, & I can order a big pile, like I did with CoH; where I bought five deluxe copies for 80p!

I am suitably impressed (with you, that is, not with Amazon!)

Aye, don't know if you recall the story; I'll tell you anyway...

LotRs in the 2004 (> present day) deluxe incarnation was RRP £100, although heavily discounted by Amazon to £60. H was RRP £60 I think. Anyway, clearly they weren't sure about CoH & flirted with £80 as a price tag. Amazon accidentally listed it at £0.80 though. I ordered five copies, for no other reason than I thought the order would be cancelled. It wasn't listed at that price for long. Anyway, it was eventually listed properly & I ordered a deluxe & a normal trade edition. But the old order remained. And, despite it being a pre-order (& therefore I hadn't paid for it; no contract as such), Amazon fulfilled the order. Think I even emailed them to ask what they'd do if I didn't cancel it. But it shipped for £4 plus £5 postage. Wonder what they'd have done if the order had been for 50 copies... (Pieter, if I recall, ordered a few at this price too.)

I was the one with the 50 + stock indeed! Was crazy not to try... and indeed did work out nicely. Have had that luck several times... am always eager to follow all changes in Amazon to pick up the cheap pre-orders!

Might have known!
