    FYI. Olszewski sells the table (but not the plexigalss cover) you saw at the Gallery.

    Yes, $60 is a great price.

    So far, all I have is the hub and the cinema piece.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    If I go again...and they have it...do you want me to pick it up for you? I don't collect them and have only sold them on Ebay when I get them at a bargain at the CW. You know, last year, I got 2 of the City Halls for 35.00 each!!!

    Bah! $35! I just paid $135 for the firehouse on e-bay....I'm late to the game so I've been picking up all my pieces on e-bay. I hate it. It's so stressful! I've only got 6pieces so far --shoot, I should just go get a bottle of TUMS from Costco....

    They are absolutely beautiful but because of their detail they are hard to display. You have to see them 360 degrees. There is so wonderful to see from all sides, but it is hard unless you have some sort of display that allows you to walk all around them. They are still magnificent!

    There's no need to pay extravagant prices for any of the pieces. With the exception of the Ripley train (which was a limited edition), all of the pieces will be re-released at some point in the future. If you just wait until each piece is re-released, you can just pay regular retail. They may be more expensive than the original release price (because of inflation and such), but they won't be the extravagant prices people are asking for on ebay. And you won't get the first day of release plaque, but that won't make any difference in how beautiful the pieces look.

    Re: Olszewski Anonymous

    I should not have gotten sucked in!! My first mistake was buying the train station JUST TO HAVE A LOOK...next thing y'know, UPS dude is knocking on my door 4 days later with City Hall...hahahahaha and so it goes with me. I won't be able to WAIT for the re-releases....I'm like that little bratty Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka. I want it now! So paying more for the pieces than I should is my road to take since I must have them all, SOON!

    I so wish I had the $$$ for these pieces! I want to start with the most iconic ones (Main St. Station, Hub, Castle) and then fill in as the budget allows. I'm in love with this set & take new pictures at the Gallery every time I go!

    I'm afraid I'll have to join this group...Been getting back into collecting these pieces lately. Started out with the Sleeping Beauty Castle piece back shortly after it came out, hoping to collect more of the pieces as they were released.

    Well...that plan fell through. But now I'm getting back into the game...playing catch up, as it were, to piece together Main Street. Started up again with Main Street Station in mid April, and I intend to go around Main Street clockwise (starting with City Hall), acquiring pieces once between every 1-3 months until it's complete.

    Of course, after I'd diluted myself into believing that just collecting any and all Disneyland pieces wasn't so bad, I had to stumble across the fact that Olszewski is doing the Magic Kingdom as well. May God have mercy on my wallet.

    Well, the good news is that there's only three or so pieces in the WDW collection, along with a few accessories, so there's not nearly as many to have to catch up on there.
