The only problem with that list - not that I'm complaining - is the frequency of Lukes. Those are all figs I want, but Hasbro wouldn't want to put all its Luke eggs in one basket, considering how much longer this line will likely continue. That we're getting three so early in the year still amazes me.
Yeah, from the sounds of it, the ROTK line ends basically as soon as the film comes out in December, replaced by the Trilogy line, which includes ROTK Series 4. What will be interesting to see is if TB pushes the ROTK assortments with the FOTR and TTT ones in support, or if stores are going to devote a lot of shelf space they haven't before to a film that's over with.
Jesse certainly doesn't need anyone to defend him, but I think it's unfair to ask him 'why he collects SW.' His posts (including the ones above) are among the most thoughtful and reasoned in the SW collecting community, and a big reason why I enjoy JD more the RS nowadays.
He came in the bundle with Gollum, Legolas HD, Theoden in Armor and Sam in Mordor. I'm so happy, especially since Boromir is one of my favorite characters. He comes with the a nice shiny new dagger and a new elven cloak.
