Those are pretty awesome.  I am going to do my best to stick to Superhero stuff, but will be hard to resist these.

The ring accessory...  awesome.  Gandalf's staff seems designed to let you put crystals and stuff on it too.  Fun.

Just wow.   :'(

I saw a Minifigs Wave 6 box at TRU yesterday but it was about half full of Wave 5 bags...

When the Dwarves series of Castle sets came out I almost bought into them because it was a more interesting piece of the overall line to me. Now with LOTR and Hobbit coming, I'm wishing I hadn't passed.  So far I love what they've shown us and can't wait to see some better loose photos of the sets.

On another note, I saw Series 6 of the minifigures at TRU last Saturday.  They were already picked over and there was a lady there going through them when I got to the store so I didn't bother to sort through. 

But, I stopped at WM after that and they had 4 or 5 boxes in the clearance aisle of S5.  They weren't full, but there were a lot there.  I went through them all!  It took probably a half hour or so but I pulled out 2 Dwarves (I don't think I missed any), 2 Gladiators and the workout chick (pink w/ boom box).  That last was an accident, I thought I had the mobster. Passed up a bunch of Palace Guards (have enough) and the only other thing besides Dwarves I was looking for was the Detective, but I had a hard time finding him and didn't end up with one.

If anyone wants a Gladiator or the workout girl and has a Detective I'd love to trade (or a Dwarf <longshot>).

Edited to change Spartan to Gladiator.

Yeah, the LEGO stuff sure looks great, can't wait.  There is so much potential for what they could do with the line too.
