Just curious if anyone had read this report at OfftheCard.com, regarding ROTK figures/toys...it is at this link, under October 15th News:Off the Card.com
Since the story is a couple days old, I'll also post the text of it here...if that's a no-no, I'm sorry, and feel free to delete it if necessary mods! Anyways, this report might be totally untrue, just thought some of you might want to read it if you haven't already. Here it is:
Another Nail in the Coffin?
It is starting to look more and more likely that the ToyBiz ROTK product currently on the shelves may be all we will see. OTC reader Matthew recently contacted ToyBiz, and got this response:
I noticed you have listed a Wave 4 with Harad Archer, Pippin in Armour, etc. I eagerly await this series because I think that there is hardly any different character selection in the Return of the King figures! But I called ToyBiz and they said they are stopping at Wave 3...
While it is entirely possible that the Customer Service rep Matthew talked to wasn't completely informed, this may also be taken as a good sign. The rumored LOTR "Trilogy" lists that popped up about a month ago didn't list an ROTK Series 4. Entertainment Earth's case assortments list the ROTK wave of the Trilogy assortment to be exactly the same as ROTK Series 4, however. As long as nothing gets shifted around at ToyBiz, it looks like all plans are going ahead for the Trilogy Assortments, which should start to hit in January with FOTR, TTT, and what was originally ROTK Series 4:
* King Aragorn
* Pippin in Armor
* Harad Archer
