That Fell Beast will be enormous...... I hope they release a properly scaled Balrog. Im going to start building a scaled Bridge of Kazad Dum this weekend, should be kind of cool! :)

Got all of my Series 2 stuff opened, and it is all great. Other than the typical problems with the bases, these are really cool, and even better than Series 1. Merry, Pippin and Boromir rock, and details on the Orcs and Uruks is top notch. Haldir is a super figure, and all of the horse and rider sets are great! Plus, all of the riders are removable in this series. Gimli and Legolas come off their horse, and Gimli actually has a fairly decent pose off his horse, even those he's kind of bowlegged (but he does crouch and bend a lot when he fights, so it kind of fits)

It's been a problem with a lot of them. Boil the figure, situate into a full upright position, and dunk it in an ice bath. I havent had any troubles with mine since.

The Series 2 Warriors and Battle Beasts are great, but my god, they are all royal ******* when it comes to fitting them on their stands. No problems with them falling though. All riders are also removable! :) Although it hardly does any good. Guess it will come in handy when more Rohimmin and other soldier horsemen come out, so you can swap figures and horses and diversify your army

Army Buckets should be on the way, maybe sometime next year! :)

Damn, that's another beautiful playset for this line Adam!  I agree that this line is excellent, probably due to it's smaller scale which allows for some of these great playsets that it's had so far.  I'd say behind the Muppets line, this is probably my second favorite "other" toyline that I see in the toy aisles.

But I still ain't gonna bite though!  Only SW for me...   :-*

From the looks of things, there is also going to be a Pellennor Fields set which will also include a Fell Beast and Ringwraith, along with Eowyn and Theoden. Cool stuff! :)

Is anyone having trouble finding the Ringwraith on Horse (the one posed in full gallop)? I've found a lot of the "just hangin' out" version, but I noticed the "running" version seems to be HTF in my neck of the Shire.

That seems to be a pretty popular one, but I ordered all mine online a few months ago. Very anxiously awaiting wave 3 now!

I was just wondering if it was short-packed for some silly reason. It looks great. (The whole line looks great. Must... continue.... resisting...)

Ive been seeing a lot of Dark Rider on Horse #2 lately. Do you need one?

Has anyone seen any of the 4 exclusive Toys R Us 2 packs? They are a horse/rider packed with a single figure from one of the three packs. If anyone sees them, I could definately use a hook up

No thanks. But I'll keep an eye out on those TRU sets for you. I went today but didn't notice any.  :(

If anyone wants to get into collecting these, for not a bad price, let me know. I've decided to sell my collection, and am willing to cut a deal. Just email me at aclowe@tds.net and Ill send you a list of what I've got.
