Nevermind, I bought it. :)

I have an auto-search set up on ebay to look for these. MRL lately has been selling what amounts to a store-bought type of Halloween costume. The costume has fake fabric-mail sleeves attached, and so on.

Instead, these stand-alone surcoats were actually pretty well made, so of course they discontinued them. My original goal was to get the entire set, but I'll be happy with a few key characters, Lancelot being one of them of course.

Ninja'd by the Commander.  It is all good...I really shouldn't be buying anything at the moment anyway, but I seem to recall you mentioning we might do a Monty Python-style event or gathering, or maybe we'd all show up on DoW garbed as those storied knights!

At VARF for 2012 we did a "guest appearance" with the Black Knight and King Arthur on the last show of Sunday at the longsword demos. I bet we can fit Lancelot in there somewhere too.

When MRL originally released them, they had the black knight, arthur, lancelot, robin, galahad, and bedevere.

So far I have the black knight, Arthur, and now (soon) Lancelot.

Galahad's is just a templar surcoat, so no biggie there (I could always make/get one of those), but Bedevere's is kinda cool, and Robin's is kinda complex too. No idea if I'll ever find the rest.

This one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/231109093993

It actually doesn't look so bad, overall, for a joke of a movie prop. Still, I don't think I want to spend $350 on a Monty Python replica.

Someone is now selling the King Arthur surcoat on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Monty-Python-the-Holy-Grail-King-Arthurs-Tunic-NEW-/301055345202?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:3160

This is one of the discontinued surcoats that were actually pretty decent, not the new "Halloween costume" version. I already have this one.
