The stuff I ordered from them always arrived fine, but came with a shipping sticker applied to the bubble of the figure.  Comes right off, if you peel carefully.

What did you order?

The NECA Balrog.   ;D

Have we talked about this?  I forget.  It's not the TB one, which seems doomed and now irrelevant.  Looking SO forward to this.

Sure, why not.  Lots of people think the Mona Lisa is beautiful (not one of them) and have so for a long time.  What's the difference between a painting and a comic?  Nada.

About what I expected.  Army builders at one per case.   ::)  Good news is it seems the Hama rumor is panning out.

That's great.  :)

Nor am I.  I've made a grand total of two LOTR customs (far more SW ones): Amon Hen Aragorn and Dunharrow Eowyn.  They're simple but effective.

Naturally the network cancels the show and then airs what I believe is it's best episode ever.  Sigh.  I loved the show tonight, I don't know if it's puppets or what, but it had me laughing myself senseless.

If the show has to end, it has to end, let's go out on a high note.  Perhaps down the road we can have movies and such.  Sigh.

Good points.  I'd like to see an all out effort on EP3, not that the last two launches haven't been 'all out.'  Just in terms of the world class sculpting, articulation, and selection we're getting now.

Amazing jadesfire!   ;D

I'm glad they didn't, not that it would have made any difference.  I don't think I'm collecting these.  Budget is tight and will only get more so, and really, as cool as these are, I have really cool Hans and Lukes right now.

 Toy Biz makes these.

Jadesfire, I'd love to see your work on the dolls.  Sounds cool.  I think Coronation Eowyn would also make a perfect base for the gown she wears in the ROTK scene where she shares the goblet with Aragorn.

Spuffy's Thoughts:

#1 Most Important: Coronation Eowyn is the best figure TB has ever made. She's perfect, and that Faramir is nothing to sneeze at, either. She's perfect for an Edoras White Dress custom, and I look forward to her the most.

#2: SP Boromir. The 2nd best fig TB has ever done. I've been waiting for him for years, ever since the so-so first Boromir.

The Fell Beast: I needed the laugh. Still, I'll probably buy one.

Roto Attack Troll: What this series was meant to be. Fantastic.


Ringwraith - A smart repack. I would have prefered a new one, but oh well.
Coronation Gimli - I really like him. Looks very regal and about time we got a new Gimli for goodness sake.
Uruk-Hai Warrior - He looks great, but WHERE IS THE HELMET?!? Sigh.
Queen Arwen - She looks great, but the reuse of Galadriel's body is curious, especially when they lavished on the coronation Eowyn. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.
Gollum - I didn't buy the SP one so I'll get him.
Shelob - A bit too small, but no big complaints here. She looks great.

Isengard Orc - Never have enough orcs.
Gamling - Turned out good.  Just what I expected.
Aragorn - Obviously a stand in.
Armored Boromir - I hope this is a stand in. He disappoints if not. The Coronation Faramir is actually more accurate to Boromir's armor, so I'm thinking this isn't final at al.
Frodo - Another stand in. Better be.

Birthday Bilbo - For some reason he looks like Joe Pesci instead of Ian Holm. Hmm. Doesn't interest me in the slightest.
Elendil - He looks great. Needs bit more of a beard.
Elrond in Robes - One of the best TB has ever done. Magnificent.
Gil-Galad - Can't say I wanted him, but bring him on. Looks good.
Moria Archer - Another world class figure. He's perfect. MUST HAVE.


Mt. Doom Frodo: Stand in.
Prologue Smeagol - He's great. I love the smirk.
Gorbag - He's really cool. I love the detail on many of these figures, just outstanding in every way.
Denethor - I love the sourpuss look. Great figure.
Gondorian Guard - Great figure. I'll get two, but we still need the regulars of course.
Legolas - Umm. More money for me.
Isengard Orc Capt. - Orc Brute surfaces. Cool, but not high on my list.
Theodred - I thought he would be a very simple Eomer swap ala Gamling, but he appears all new. Kudos to TB.
Samwise - Stand in central.
Shagrat - I love the Uruks, and he's awesome.
PJ Hobbit - The nicest surprise and most troubling development. When they mean chase, do they mean TW Frodo chase? This will make a lot of people unhappy if he proves impossible to find.

Again, more detailed thoughts later, but I agree whole-heartedly with jadesfire, the Coronation set is the hallmark of the year for me.  Not the ridiculously small Fell Beast, not the NECA Balrog (close second), but that fantastic Eowyn figure.  She's perfect.  I'll buy two, and customize the White Lady Edoras dress out of her.  :)

This will take a while to digest, but for right now:

Peter Jackson Hobbit chase figure: UGH.

SA FOTR Boromir: Best figure they've done yet.

Some of those figures in Waves 3 and 4 (Mt. Doom Frodo) better be stand-ins.
