Found a Kmart in my area that actually had some Hobbit stuff and scored quite a few items on the cheap.  Mostly just goblins for my "army" that I really just let my son play with.

I should have done this...  I am going to go back today and see if there are any left.

thanks for the idea!

and I came home with 6 more Grinnah figures - bringing my total up to 8.  I also grabbed an extra set of Balin/Dwalin and Kili/Fili

I finally found a  store with Hobbit stuff. I got one of everything and some extra goblins. THey didn't have the Goblin King or the Gandalf/Blol 2-pack, of course. I was just gonna get a Warg and Frodo with Gollum and maybe the goblin. Then I did the math and realized I could get everything 3 3/4" scale item for under $30, so if I liked the line I would have almost everything. If I don't, well, I doubt I won't be able to get my money back on it at some point.

Those didn't seem to go to K-Mart...  Don't know why but no reports of them hitting there.  Go figure.

thanks for the heads up!!!

Thranduil and Beorn are news to me!  At first I only saw Thranduil was in the Myrkwood pack and I was pissed - but then saw he is available as a single - awesome!

I am definitely down for these:
-Thorin Oakenshield Adventure Pack: Nori, Ori, Dori, Gloin and Thorin
- Bilbo Baggins Burglar Pack: Bifur, Bombur, Bofur, Oin and Exclusive 3.75" Invisible Bilbo

and these as individuals:  Radagast, Thranduil, Azog, Beorn

cant wait to see what else is coming - yes I am expecting more!  One thing they left off the list - Azog and the White Warg

TNI has updated with images of the upcoming Hobbit figures:

http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=16&itemid=20297

They all look really nice, looking forward to getting the rest of the dwarves.  I am a little surprised we're not getting any dwarves in the six inch line this time around, with only Thorin in the last round I'm guessing it is a little unlikely we'd be able to get the entire set by the time the movies are done (if they continue this release pattern).  Happy to have them in 3 3/4" though, and really hope we get some LOTR figures in the future too.

they just posted about it on Facebook so check that out for full details.  Basically it is a 7 inch Azog figure with interchangeable hands and weapons and one of the hands will be holding the head of King Thror

I got the first wave of the 6" figures last year (in addition to the 3 3/4" stuff), and thought they were pretty well done.  That being said, I don't have a lot of faith that they are going to get to all the dwarves in this scale, since we only got Thorin so far and it doesn't seem like they are making any of them this year.  Unless they really go nuts with this scale for the last movie, I don't see it happening, so I may bail on the 6" scale from here on out.  Happy to have Gandalf and Bilbo though (and the rest are well done too), but I should probably stick to one scale.

I'll have to check that out as I've passed on the Goblin King but want that set a lot...  also bolg.  TRU's stuff was just way too much for the most part, for me to commit.
