Order your Hobbit 3D glasses and be ready to watch An Unexpected Journey in style! Can't Post

You may remember reading about these awesome 'Dwarvish'-looking 3D glasses, when we posted this story back in August.  Now you can buy your very own pair!  The folks behind the glasses, Look3D, tell us this:

'Look3D, along with Warner Bros. and RealD, have created these 'Middle-earth' inspired 3D Glasses specifically for the new Hobbit film!  Look3D has only created 5,000 units of the limited edition packaging, and these will be available for a limited time on Amazon.com in the US, and through www.look3d.com.  The limited edition pack comes with the 3D glasses and branded soft cloth bag.'

There are a few ways you can get your hands on these fabulous glasses.  They are available at 'Made in Middle-earth: Wellington's Hobbit Artisan Market' - so those of you lucky enough to be in New Zealand for the Premiere can head over there and snap up a pair.  We're also excited to let you know that the good folks at Look3D have given us pairs to give away at some of our Line Parties - so if you come along to one of TORn's Line Party events, you may win a pair of these glasses.  Click here to look for a Line Party near you.

If you're NOT in Wellington and you don't want to chance your luck on winning a pair, don't despair - you can order online at Amazon.com!  The glasses are only $10 - order your own pair now, and watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in style!  Click here to order.

I'm surprised they're not slightly more expensive.

I think it's only certain products [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not in the US, but Amazon US has delivered CDs to me in the past.

More recently, I attempted to order the Hobbit soundtracks, and they woul dhave been shipped to me, but Amazon US charges a ridiculous "customs deposit" amount, so I ordered the soundtracks off of Amazon UK.

When I tried checking out these glasses, I got a message saying it won't ship to me. So I think it's only certain products.

Pity... I would've liked to have got one for myself.

LOL... yeah, me too [In reply to] Can't Post

They looked more expensive to me, but I suppose they're cheap plastic ones.

If you have yours, what's the quality like (are they even a little durable!), and do you think they're worth purchasing?

Really? [In reply to] Can't Post

I've bought a number of items from amazon.de and amazon.co.uk. People outside the U.S. can't do the same from ours? That's no fair.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
