I wouldn't hold my breath for TW Frodo.  TopJedi's right, Ebay will probably be your best bet.

Hey all, you'll probably want to check your local KB's. They're getting in sweet discounted TTT stock, priced at $5.99 each. I picked up a Prologue Elf. Galadriel was still there. Oh, and they had a lot of Frodo w/ light-up Sting. Couldn't be because TB packed him 4x a case could it? ::)

The employees told me they still had more swag on the truck. LOTR goodness. Fetch me a mop.

I also got a Prologue Elf today and was disappointed to find no Merry & Pippin 2 packs among those at KB.  Makes me wonder if Wal Mart was the pnly place that particular repack showed up.

Luck?  I'll think you'll need more than the Force AND Luck combined to find TWF on the pegs ;)

Some new's here is the scoop:
Coming Soon: More on the Exclusive 3-packs for the U.S.
Dragonspy Michael sends in some definitive evidence of the upcoming 3-packs headed for U.S. Toys 'R Us stores early next year. These 3-packs are slated to be priced at $17.99 and contain 3 repacked figures. Check out these images of the TRU stock paperwork, Also looks like Toybiz and TRU will be reducing the prices for the upcoming Trilogy Assortments down to $5.99. Hopefully this does NOT MEAN NO NEW PACKAGING...but time will tell:

Got this from thegd.com: click here to see the pics!

Eeeesh. Plenty of repacks, yet no Balrog. Sounds like a bit of cranial-rectal inversion at Toy Biz there.

Carded ROTK Series 4, or I guess LOTR Trilogy Series 1.  With new cheap as we can make it packaging!  Still, the figures are fantastic, with the exception of Legolas, who looks like a repack.  I think.

I hope that Entertainment Earth lowers their price on the carded figures, because hell no, i am mad!!!!! I do not like this at all!!!!!  So they are basically going to re-pack all the figures in this ugly a** packaging.

eh...not sure what to think only that I am glad this will be ending soon for me.   I seriously need to downsize my spending habits with Padawan #2 on the way and I have given up MOTU and LOTR pretty much already.  Marvel is so limited in only 2 releases a year I can stomach that

I don't like the packaging too much but those figures look sweet!

Icky packaging. Horrible beyond reckoning. Further proof of TB's real commitment to this line.
