I was checking out GW's LotR strategy mini game with the thought of possibly getting it for my son for his birthday. Then I noticed that the starter set sells for $75 CDN and really doesn't include many figs. I'm curious if it's the same price in the US or if, like many miniature/board games, it's a whole lot cheaper there?
They've got it priced a couple of different ways on their website. 70 bucks US for the hobby set,
but 60 bucks for the basic game.
You'll probably be able to find it cheaper on-line, but due to Games Workshop's weird web policies, you generally have to contact the store via phone or email to actually place the order.
edit - looks like The War Store
sells these minis at a discount, but I'm not sure if it'd be worth it once you factor in shipping costs to Canada.
