Middle Earth / Re: LOTR Trilogy Figures

You remember that little nugget I copied and pasted from The GD a few months back? About some TRUs not carrying ML and LOTR anymore?

Well, that's the case. It has struck my TRU as well, and since they aren't a player anymore, there is absolutely NO new LOTR around here.

Same thing happened by me.  But in the case of my local store they stopped carrying Marvel Legends but kept on carrying LOTR.  What's even more bizarre is that this store was the second leading seller of Marvel Legends in the Toys R Us chain.  No wonder TRU is in financial trouble.

I was just re-watching the Trilogy over the past few days, and here's another figure that could stand to be done:  The Numenorean Soldiers from the Prologue!  We've got Prologue figures like the Prologue Elf Warrior, Elrond, Gil Galad, Sauron, Elendil and now Isildur.  The Numenorean soldiers look pretty cool, too.

Ya think?


Darth Maul is on the way, though.  Ray Park was in for a visit and a scan at Gentle Giant this past summer, so Darth Maul can't be far behind.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A question to Star Wars fans.

Ok we all know that most of us here would have, in a heartbeat, appeared in one of the Prequel films, even Episode 1. I have a few questions though, that I don't think have been asked before!!

1. Would you want an action figure based on your obscure character??

Sure.

Quote
2. Would you want a figure of yourself, even if it was as a human character, not an alien??

Yeah.  A small measure of immortality like that is kind of appealing.

Quote
3. Would you go to those Star Wars cons and autograph the thousands of pics and or figures the fans present to you??

Having met a lot of the people who do this, I think so.  The fans I've come across who go to the autograph booths are pretty cool.

4. What about the thousands of photos they would ask to take with them??
Yeah.

Quote
5. Would you quit your job to do the cons full time??

Probably not.  I don't think it would be THAT lucrative.

Quote
6. What would be your limit as to appearances??
Travel and accomodations.  Pretty much the standard deal.

Cool.  I guess I'll have to hunt for that one.

I thought the PJ figure was shipping in a Fellowship 10-pack.  Am I incorrect?

Isildur is the FOTR figure I REALLY want.  Such a pivotal character in the Prologue, and they've waited to do him until now?!

The error is going around.  Check out this article with some info from Gentle Giant on the subject.

FWIW, I'm still interested.

Boussh isn't a rumor, it's fact.  Gentle Giant showed a prototype of it at Wizard World Chicago.  They weren't allowing photographs though.  Darth Maul is also in the pipeline in the not-so-distant future as well.

I know where those first carded samples on eBay came from.  It wasn't a way you would typically see things make their way out to retail.

Looks okay to me.  I actually passed on the Frodo for paint issues though.

I actually managed to find Denethor, prologue Smeagol, Citadel Guard, Gorbag & Frodo this evening.  Very cool figures!  I'm going to have to buy at least a couple more Citadel Guards.

Saw this wave at Toys R Us today so they out at retail now too!  Which means we might see the Preview Wave fairly soon...which then means there will be a good three month lull in figures ::)

Actually, the Preview wave showing before Christmas is kind of unlikely.  I think the last SW to ship is going to be this Cantina wave.  I can't see them sneaking two waves of figures in before Christmas as we're only 2 weeks away.  Besides, there's probably a rough street date on the preview wave.  I wouldn't expect to see them before February.

Traditionally, the lull at toy stores occurrs immediately after Christmas.  There will be a number of year-end sales.  Then, the toy chains go into inventory mode for a week or two.  Then orders go our and things start to trickle in towards the end of January/early February.  I've seen it too many times to not to know what to expect.

Well, I can certainly understand everyone's frustration.  I just happen to think that the best form of protest in this instance is not giving in to the collecting bug and making a statement monetarily.

I think if you're going to compromise and buy the thing, you do have options.  I would consider buying two.  One I would keep with probosci in place, and on the other one I would remove the offending protrudences.  I would then fill in the holes with sculpey and do a repaint of the head.  Not a very difficult solution.
