I should also add that the fact we're getting 4 and 5 so soon gives me great hope that we'll see many more series from ROTK.  The original Marz Trilogy list suggested this:

Series 6 - Queen Arwen, Gimli, Ringwraith, Uruk-hai, Gollum with Ring, and Shelob

And I think beyond that we still have plenty of time and opportunity for Denethor, Gondorian Knights, Orcs, Uruks, and all the other figs we want.   ;D

I hope.

Entertainment Earth posts some interesting news:

QUANTITIES AND FIIGURE MIX IS LIKELY TO CHANGE

Return of the King Series 5 - January 2004
To commemorate the release of the final film in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Return of the King, Toy Biz introduces 6 inch action figures! This case of 12 individually packaged action figures includes:

2x King of the Dead
2x Faramir
2x Merry in Armor
2x King of the Dead (Glow in the Dark)
4x Witchking in Armor.
QUANTITIES AND FIIGURE MIX IS LIKELY TO CHANGE.

6 King Aragorns?  Umm... okay.  Otherwise I'm glad we're getting both Series 4 and 5 in Jan.  Hopefully Faramir is the armored version, allowing at the least customizing options for Gondorian Knights and Boromir.  After seeing the rotocast Legolas figure today, I think this will be the so far unseen Series 4 version, shrunk down of course.  New sculpt and likeness, lots of articulation.

There are some nice choices to bid on, and I was all excited for Kitik there for a second, but yeah, stoopid.  There's little point in even trying.

They look awesome, Obi Wan and Asajj in particular.  I agree, a nice little side line.

It is, best I can tell.  Sounds new, though.

I was beginning to wonder when he was showing up.  Pretty cool.

That trailer is on par with the first teaser for Episode 1.  Utterly amazing.  Speechless.

Yeah, I don't think the films (and toys) really went into overdrive until TTT.  And absolutely, I have no idea why TRU wouldn't take this on as an exclusive.  This is right up their alley.

Yeah, why didn't they just do these?  Hmm.  I am kind of looking forward to these, though.  Hopefully they turn out cool.  And where is Yoda?  Grr.  Wave 2 probably.

I'm really happy with the announcements, even if I am slightly surprised/disappointed not to see Hermie, but he's inevitable.  R1 and R2 look fantastic.  I'm so happy with those, and Luke, too.  J'Quille!   ;D  Next year looks to be fantastic.

The three pack is a great idea.  I also vote for Vader w/ Meditation Chamber.  He's rock solid.

I don't think there's anything to stop TB from pushing the Balrog as an exclusive somewhere else besides Wal Mart.  It's obvious both KB and TRU appreciate the line.  A rotocast Balrog (what, $10?) would blow out of stores.   The only alternative would be to shrink it and include it as part of the figure assortment ala Treebeard, but if Wal mart is really against this figure no matter what, then that's probably out, too.  Come to think of it, WM probably killed that Orc Warrior from Toy Fair, too.
