I'd have thought £200 would be about on the money for a fine set. Not like they are particularly scarce. I guess dealer prices like this are aimed at those (probably uncommon) buyers that just want to be able to buy the item immediately, rather than trawling eBay and Abe for a few months until the right set comes along.

Also, thanks for the Deluxe HoME pictures, Stu. Did you order this one:

Yeah, that was where I ordered from. Was a bit cheaper when I ordered (in fact, oddly it was cheaper with an NZ IP than with a UK IP that day).

That's a pretty diplomatic way of describing a price that is practically ten times what you might expect to pay for a decent set. Even a F/F set could be acquired for £200 tops. That price is total nonsense.
