That HD Uruk Hai is definitely cool.  That's one I've been waiting for for some time.  I'm wondering what that second Aragorn is.  I know the first one is the Weathertop figure.  Is the second one yet ANOTHER HD Aragorn?

It looks like a mere repack of the recent SA Aragorn.
That's just judging from the pic, though. ???

I was reading somewhere a few weeks ago that his undershirt changes color from like blue to red to green.  Amon Hen to Orc Hunting to Edoras to Helm's Deep to the first half of ROTK

I'm not sure if that's true or not but he seems to wear the same costume for quite a while with perhaps some subtle differences

I have the same trouble keeping track of Legolas' costume changes.  They are more pronounced but also fairly subtle

So I'm REALLY behind on my LOTR and I thought I'd take a last stab and see if any of you folks out there can help me.  I have som stuff to trade, including minty red box TTT Twilight Frodo and single packed Boromir that I would give up to finish most of this off:

Attack Troll
SP Boromir
Isildur
Denethor
Gorbag
Citadel Guard
Smeagol fisherman
Shagrat
Gamling
Coronation Gimli
Gil Galad
Theodred
Orc Captain

Loose is more than fine with these.  LMK.  Help!

I've got the following:

Theodred
Gamling

Can probably get all of the following:
SP Boromir
Isildur
Denethor
Gorbag
Citadel Guard
Smeagol fisherman
Shagrat

As always, you're faced with the price dilemma.  TRU up here is the main retailer for these, but they charge what works out to $9 US (taxes in) for them.  Walmart is better, charging around $7.50 US (again, taxes in) but I can't always find everything there.  Currently they are only stocking the green cards, for some strange reason.  But I saw a SP Boromir and Prince Isildur last night.  The Theodred came from TRU, Gamling came from Walmart. 

Orc Captain seems to not be in Canadian shipments.  Attack Troll doesn't show here, but if it does, it will be at TRU and expensive ::)  Coronation Gimli and Gil Galad seem to have run through now, not seeing them anymore at all. 

I'm happy to help with cost and shipping if you like, but I understand if not, they are quite pricey up here :-\

I'm definitely in for Gamling.  I have some ebay auctions going my way right now, so if you could find these:

Denethor
Gorbag
Citadel Guard

That would be great.  Thanks a lot.

Will check for you starting tomorrow.  Those three move slowly here so if anyone has restocked them lately, I should find them.

Picked up Gorbag today to go with Gamling.  Also picked up spares of SP Boromir and Isildur (Prince) if you also want them.  Picked up Beth's Prince Isildur today as well.

I am officially caught up thanks to Amazon!

Preordering went slick, I hope the same holds true for the next wave and Marvel Legends

Thanks, Morgbug.  What would the damage be for Gorbag and Gamling?  If it's cheaper to ship them, you could ship them loose, I don't mind.

Got a Mirkwood Legolas from Amazon today, which I thought I had canceled, but I actually like it, so I'm glad I didn't.

Also got an the Orc Captain I ordered from Qwiksand/Krypton/whatever Collectibles. It cost me $16 with shipping, but at least I have one.

Which leaves me with these few figures to catch up, which are the hardest ones to get:
Hama
Gamling
Isengard Orc
Bilbo Transfixed
Peter Jackson as a Hobbit
