I have about 8 different sets. Sadly, they are sitting in boxes. My wife just found them a little too bachloresque. One day, I will finish off part of the basement, and exhibit these treasures.

@Patrick and america 117

I think the towers were a special edition for germany and only avaliable in germany plus they werent displayed on the towers to scale website.

I cant remember the site anymore but on every site I find them theyre sold out!

I have a blacklight. They glow very intensivly when you hold it up to the puzzles. Plus I took the picture for 60 sec (which makes it look even better). You can tell in the last picture I was moving the light arround while the camera was taking the picture.
