To me, that LOTR line should've been pimped a LOT more than the Armies of Middle Earth. I think that company should've been given whatever contract was given to the company making AoME.
They are nice though, if you're into diorama building or gaming. A good dual role.
I just happened to get a bunch of new minis in today for Star Wars... I got:
-Rebel Officer (Capt. Antilles uniform)
-Rebel Fleet Tropoer (Last one I needed, the 2nd female trooper)
-Imperial Stormtrooper (Cold Weather Gear)
-Imp. Naval Trooper with E-Web Cannon
-Stormskimmer (Imp. Landspeeder thing)
All good stuff... It cost me $38 for all of that, which is pretty cheap for this hobby since these are out of print.
I'm 99% up to snuff on minis that are army building type of minis now... I need to now focus on getting the aliens and "hero" figures like the Han's and Luke's and such. Also the Emperor and the two Royal Guard figures incase I ever wanna do an "Assassination" type of mission.
Cool stuff... I had a good day today between getting the Jabba's Palace wave and a pile of new (and some rarer) minis.
I'm going into the weekend on a high note!
