Does anyone know how much this set usually sells for or its general value? I'm not selling the set but thinking of buying it.

This set is very uncommon. If you can get it for under $200 I think you are doing well. $300-400 is more likely I think.

The Set originally retailed at £150 Sterling and is indeed uncommon at this stage.

The last one I saw on Ebay sold for around $550 as far as I can remember.

Thanks! The set I found was $400. It doesn't seem like such a good deal, though. I doubt I'll buy it.

For anyone interested in buying the set, I found it on craig's list:

I do not know the seller, nor am I vouching for him or her.

Here's some prices I've noted (on eBay) over the past few years:

In 2006:
£110 no slipcase
£97 no slipcase
In 2007:
£112 no slipcase
In 2008:
£283 still sealed

Also wanted a set; but prices have always been highly variable I think.
