262 figures divided by €40.00 EUR = €6.55 EUR per fig is that good?

Isn't that more like €0.15 EUR per figure?

If it's usable stuff it's a bargain so long as you have a use for it.

I thought I might use the No Quarter rules with them, I was just curious is the very low price I paid was a fluke or if the value of these things was gone to hell. With a lot of older lines ftom GW they end up being very hard to get and pricey years down the line, but they saturated this market so much , I wasnt getting these as a long term investment, but I thought it might be nice to have them for when my sons get older and inevitably get into LOTR.

Two Frodos, eh?
"You fake like you have the Ring, while I make a break for it…"
"Yeah right. No, YOU fake like you have the Ring…"
"Wait. Do you have the Ring?"
"No, I thought YOU had it!"

That looks like a good bargain to me

I would've opted for the Ansel Adams glass negatives, myself. laugh

Looks like a good bargain to me. The Ansel Adams negatives are the find of a lifetime.
