Apparently the black armor is sold out already, at least for European PaB customers. I do not know if this also applies for US PaB.

The black ones are apparently discontinued being leftovers from the 7015 Viking Warrior vs. Fenris Wolf and 2006 KKII rogue knights production while the silver ones are still in production and part of the newer Fantasy Era castle line. I expect that this silver armor will therefore remain available for a longer period of time. At least, let's hope it will be.

I think Lego parted out some special pieces from the 5615 The Knight impulse set which explains the availability of the torso's and armor pieces. Unfortunately, they forgot to include the silver helmet and the crown shield.

Upper part no.1266 seems to be the torso used on the 5614 Good Wizard impulse set by the way except for the different color hands.

The US still has the armor. I'm not surprised that it's been sold out already there.
Do parts commonly come back after they've been sold out?

Usually not if they are out of production which is the case with black armor. The KKII line of products and the Vikings are gone. In other words the black armor is discontinued unless Lego decides to use it again in new sets. Then they will need to start producing this part in black again but my guess is that the black armor is all that is left from the KKII rogue knights and the Viking line.

Maybe they will restock the black armor pieces. They did use them in the Final Joust as a printed element, so they might still be churning them out.

There's always hope!
As for me, I put out an order for 100 of each color. I'll prolly buy more if they can keep them in stock.

Looks like PaB is now limited to 25 items in the US:

If I am reading it right it is of one item right?

Sad that TLC just does not increase production on popular items instead of this solution. There are a few Lego items I wish they'd up production on. I can see it as fair in some cases. I keep going to buy a few of the stupid battle packs and they are always sold out, likely because someone bought the 10 I wanted or more! They finally came back up a few days ago on S@H and by the time I got out of work and had time to make an order they were gone.... the thing that really gets me is that I bet in a week half the sets will all be on eBay for two to three times what they are worth. I am going to leave the Lego website up all the time and refresh it so I can pounce next time they appear! :D

The limit of 25 per customer is if you order multiples of your PaB selection. You can still buy 999 pieces in one lot. If you wanted to you can buy 24,975 of one type of piece, that would max out the limit of 25 PaB per customer.

I know what you mean HoBF, except I look at it from the point of being the re-seller. I end up kicking myself for not hopping onto the boat earlier and buying all that I could. :roll:

God Bless,

It would be $3,996.00 if you maxed out on Black Euro Armors. ;)

Henry V,

Still waiting to pounce.... this time I will get them if I can get them before they are all gone. Sadly I cannot even one of each from TLC as they sell out so quickly. Looks like the battle packs are good sellers.

Can't quite understand why...the skellies and crownies never really appealed to me...

HenrytheV, despite the number, I still can't fathom the cost. I maxed out on black euro armor and only got fifty-five...

Hmmm, I wonder why I can buy as many as I want then. :?

Of course, shipping is $200 at that point.

Woo hoo!

Just got my first shipment of Euro armor from PaB. 100 silver and 50 black. $27 shipped to my door.

Though I was expecting chrome when I read "silver", I'm now glad they're the light pearl gray that's found in the new sets. I still may have to order more black if there is indeed a finite number of them available...

"I'm now glad they're the light pearl gray that's found in the new sets."

Aww snap!

I thought they were going to be metallic silver (I know, I had high hopes..). Guess I'll just auction them off to get some of the cash back, as I've no use for the pearl armors.

Perhaps I should order more blacks now, if available. Plenty use for them! :)

I think this is incredibly, myself. Euro armors for 16 cents a piece. I am placing an order for 50 blacks, so I'll be armoring up my army, wooo!!
