Yeah.  If they do 3.75" figures for The Hobbit and LOTR ... and they look halfway decent at all ... I'm screwed.

Kind of where my mind is too...  I'm just, wow.  I may just have to keep my composure on these, but man...  And then you're in, and then they don't do them all that you want and the line ends...  ugh.  I'm already overthinking this stuff, haha.

I see BBTS updated their info a bit (still no pics of course), and added in some character names.  Here's what I see for each scale:

3.75 Scale
Bilbo Baggins
Gandalf
Thorin Oakenshield
Legolas
Grinnah

Figure 2 Pack - Bilbo and Gollum
Figure 2 Pack - Legolas and Tauriel
Figure 2 Pack - Fili and Kili
Figure 2 Pack - Balin and Dwalin

Collector Pack - Bilbo, Thorin, Dwalin, Kili, Fili
Beast Pack - Fimbul Orc with Warg
Beast Pack - Goblin King with Thorin
Deluxe Battle Pack - Gandalf and Bolg
Goblin King Battle Playset

6" Scale
Bilbo Baggins
Gandalf
Thorin Oakenshield
Legolas
Tauriel
Deluxe Collector Figure - Azog

Although I definitely don't need more to collect, I'm really hoping this line is well done.

I've been hearing that The Bridge Direct has apparently hired a number of former Toy Biz staffers.  And the news of the 6" scale figures is definitely cause to be a little more optimistic about this line.

I am intrigued to see the 3 3/4 scale. If it looks good i hope we get all the movies done in that scale.

I would be in serious trouble if I started the 3.75" stuff, but I'm glad to see some 6" figures. I just can't imagine that scale lasting more than a couple of series.

can't wait to see these but we are probably going to have to wait until SDCC at the earliest, right?

Agreed! 

And Hasbro needs the competition, in my opinion, to step up their game.

BBTS has some preorders listed, and there's quite a bit there.  There are 3.75" single packed figures and 2-packs.  Plus there are also about half a dozen 6" scale figures listed, too.

Agreed - cause Mattel with their DC 3.75" junk certainly isn't providing any sort of legitimate competition to the Hasbro Marvel/Star Wars/GI Joe 3.75" stuff...

I can't believe it's the middle of June and we haven't seen ANY photos of these figures.  You'd think that these figures would be out by the middle of November, at the latest, and that's only 5 months from now.  It's really hard to build buzz and put in pre-orders this far in advance for product you've never seen.

Did they offer up any protos for buyers at Toy Fair?  Have, at least, stores that are going to be carrying the line seen it yet?

Obviously they are waiting for SDCC...I was whole hog in on LOTR after initial reluctance.  I sold it all 3 years ago. My boys are really into The Hobbit and LOTR now, they'll probably want more than I do.  I did buy all of the Lego sets already :P
