Not an exclusive, but they are also planning on releasing Army Buckets, with upwards of 30 army building troops, like an Uruk bucket, Rohan bucket, etc

is the "they" Walmart Canada, or the manufacturer?  IOW, is this another Canuckian exclusive?

OK, this is now officially the greatest toy line ever.
If it isn't, it's getting pretty close.

I've really been having trouble deciding which line to collect, Toy Biz, or Armies of Middle Earth.  Since I don't have any LOTR collectibles so far, I'm starting from scratch and could go either way.  I have always wanted a few TB figures, but the AOME are appealing due to a space issue with my collections, and being able to get three figures for about the same price as one 6" figure.  I'm not sure what to do, but both lines are looking great lately...and easy to find thanks to KBtoys.com.  Do any of you prefer one line over the other?

I just got my Series 2 stuff! :) Havent had a chance to open it yet, but everything looks much better than Series 1, and Series 1 was fantastic.

There are tons and tons of great pictures at KBToys of upcoming sets. The Fell Beast set looks great, and should be near perfectly scaled. It also has a Ringwraith rider (you can see his arm if you look closely).

AOME is shaping up to be an unbeatable toy line.

Mosnab, since you are just getting started, I'd definately recommend AOME. It's smaller, just as much detail, and you dont have as much catching up to do.
