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.
