I just stopped at Deluxe Toy & Hobby (my local toy store) & was told that they found something in their warehouse - a circus set from some time ago. Was I interested? I'll find out soon exactly what it is, but of course I said I wanted it. I have no circus stuff except one clown set from the '90s. I can't imagine what this is going to be.

Hopefully good. It'd be cool if it was a Roncalli. ;D My mom and I lucked up and found 3720 (the one I've been eyeing for a while) at our local thrift earlier this year!  :o Sadly the janitor and ringmaster were absent, but included was the snake lady (3737) and the lady with an elephant but no man (3711). And to think I almost passed it by. Goes to show, when thrifting— always bring an extra person!

That's a dream scenario! I'm staying tuned for this one  :munch:

I've had a peek inside the box; it's a circus toy store display including 4230 & about 3 other circus sets. I should be able to get it soon. I had to pay off my Xmas layaway first. The display is going for $100.

 :yup
The anticipation is killing me!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
