Yes, just to confirm...we inserted those three cards in the new issue, one per issue.

Got P1 character montage. Like I said in the other thread, good looking card but too dark. Dark figures in black cloaks on black background. Only Gandalf stands out in his white. I hope the set is brighter and more colorful, but probably not given the costumes.

My two copies both had P2. Anyone have a P1 or P3 to spare ?

A set of 3 promos, P1-P3, was on the auction site today and immediately sold.

Not too many of these have shown up on ebay over the past 3-4 weeks. Are folks not opening NSUs anymore ?

It's probably just a matter of a lot of buyers keeping what they got especially something from a popular franchise like Lord of the Rings.

People tend to hold on to promos until they decide if they are doing the set or not. Also its difficult to find all 3 promos with blind NSU buys. I see a lot of the subscription copies carrying the same promo, while store copies have doubles of other promo numbers at the same locations.

I know NSU will probably say they mix them up, but every time I buy two copies to get two different promo numbers I seem to only find doubles of one. It does make sense to buy someone's 3 card set if you really want them, rather than keep buying magazines.

It sounds like an added step to a process to try to mix them up before they get packed to ship. I don't know the process, though. Maybe some get mixed up anyway.

Even If you get two of one any of these LOTR cards, it seems like you can find somebody who would want to trade for the extra. I'll probably try my luck if I see copies still on the shelf on my next trip to B&N.

I have a spare P1 that I'd like to trade for a P3 if anyone has an extra...
