No, UPC matches overseas and no part count on the front of the box.  I have contacted many sellers and they are drop shipping from overseas.  Explains the high price as well.

Can you point us to a pic of a "US" style box?

I think it may well be a full European production run of 10000 out there.

Very.co.uk just sold out 5 mins ago, I’m not sure if they were selling them online yesterday though.

Very's stock appeared after 6am. Looks like around 60 units judging by the other new sets. 

I think there are a lot less than 10,000 sets out there.

Lego branded stores would have received a shipment as well as the warehouse for online sales, hence will be a lot less than 10k.  My local store said they had a stack of them in the back but obviously weren’t allowed to put them on the shelves.  As to what will happen to them, they do not know yet.  Hence, would not surprise me if in the end they decide to put those out on the shelves those that are already in back rooms and avoid having to ship them back.  If they do ship them back I’d expect that they’ll break down the sets for for distribution to LUGs for spare parts

Here is some evidence that JLP had 159 units delivered, 53 cartons. Now they may have had more than one pallet, I don't know. Very/Littlewoods had around 60. Smyths 100-200, Argos 400, Independents 100 to 200.

Lego and Amazon stock is missing as are one or two other players. 

If anyone can add any other evidence, it would be much appreiated. These are ball park figures, but my gut today is 1,000 to 2,000 units in UK circulation, probably nearer 1,000.

Of course this figure many change in the future with the unsold stock. Will it be broken down and recycled, who knows.

What other sites should we be keeping an eye on do you think? You mentioned Amazon and Lego but that's surely unlikely now but what about others. Do some retailers wait until after release date.

My JLP order of three was also XX of 53. None of my local independents got the set or they lied to me when they told me that Lego weren't sending them any. My completely uninformed opinion is that we're looking at under 1,000 in the UK.

Yeah I’m thinking the same, probs 1500-2000 in the U.K. 

What about other European countries though, I know Smyths had them in Germany and some Czech online sites too.

If the release date in Northern America was meant to be 1st September, when do you think you could comfortably say they aren't getting any?

Given other countries who received stock started selling it a few days before the 1st August official release date.

It was Sept 1st before cancellation as far as I'm aware.  So "never".  However, I imagine there is a possibility that Lego could decide to ship stock manufactured if so to stores and just sell it.  That way said stock is sold without any "losses".

I think that's kinda day dreaming but a nice thought, Lego to ship/sell all stock that is manufactured for the Osprey would well undo all issues they are trying to avoid by recalling the product. I think there is a few little pockets of product floating about in retail stores now, but the thing is well done its dash, now to see what happens with the free market now should make for fantastic watching!

Lego technically didn't recall this product, they just canceled it.  Lego said that themselves retailers that received stock would still be allowed to sell it.  

The price average has really dropped in the past two days, earlier this morning we were at around $750.  It seems to start lower in the morning and then increase by the evening.  Currently I see a $800 average before shipping.  We are just shy of 500 listings total since inception.  The number of items being listed peaked on the 3rd at around 40 plus on one day.  We are back down to the average prior to release around 20 average.  Total sold each day has also lowered.  Each day we have seen about a 50 to $60 drop in the average price sold. If it continues by Sunday we might be in the $600 range.  Right now I believe quick flippers looking to sell are driving the lowering of the price.  Just ends up being a battle.  I think I saw maybe 150 listed currently?

The number of quick flippers selling these right now is next level. Over 300 active listings internationally on ebay. 

It will be interesting to see what the numbers look like in a week, a month, and in December... I can't see them going below $500US personally, but the question is if they'll ever get back to $1800... We can but wait and see!

I'm sitting on a few sets, waiting for the eBay noise to die down.

I've sold a couple to people in America to recover my outlay. Seems that's where the premium will be if no sets ever make it there.

If prices crash back to rrp then I'm no worse off.

I’m not in any hurry to sell, but I will take offers on a case of 3 from buyers in the United States. I also have the sets in hand already.

Did you buy these from a US store or site, or import them?

So the price may be stabilizing in eBay, seeing an avg for the past couple days of 715-750 USD before shipping.  The number of new items being listed as well as sold has slowed down.  And we are now at the fade into memory stage because the Lego sub reddit unpinned it's thread.  I'm sure it'll continue to drop a smidge more but things appear to be normalizing.
