Huge LOTR fan and I have one of each figure, and mutiple of some. Anyway, from the list this is what I want:
Collection Asst 1/2 (Sep/Oct 05) buy all of these
Aragorn at Rivendell with shards of Narsil
Frodo with Book
Gandalf in robes
Mordor Orc with skull
Collection Asst 3 (Jan/Feb 06)
Aragorn w/Light up Palantir (sorry, but I'll probably pass, tired of all my Aragorn's)
Super-Poseable Legolas (pass)
Easterling w/Banner (maybe)
Orc w/Banner (maybe)
Corsair (wil buy even though rumor has it that it will not be PJ but one of the other staff members who was on the ship).
Collection Asst 4 (Apr/May 06)
Barrow Wight ? (I doubt this will be made)
Birch Ent (will buy)
Rosie Cotton (hmmm is she in her wedding dress or normal? Will probably buy)
Berserker Uruk w/ Bomb (will buy)
Aragorn w/ Red Sleeves at Rohan (Nope, enough of Aragorn at Rohan to last til doomsday)
Wolf the Wild Man (buy)
"To be determined" figure
Now, having said that, I have to say that I really wanted the line to be done after the Epic 2 figures. I guess that is reflected in my non-completist purchases reflected above. I have loved collecting this line, and have it on display, but as much as I love the books and movies, I am very close to closing out on my collecting of the ToyBiz figures. I mean, how many more Aragorn's, Legolas et all can I get? Now, I CANNOT wait for The Hobbit in 5 or 6 years and will buy one of each dwarf, and the variations they put out. I see the traveling dwarfs, the Battle of Five Armies Dwarfs, Bilbo traveling, Biblo Twilight (different pose then the one we got in the 3 pack with the ring in his palm?), Bilbo in mithril armor, Bilbo at Battle of Five Armies (or would that also be a Twilight one?), Gandalf in his various poses . . . .
In all honesty, I would buy the dwarfs on journey, the dwarfs at Battle of Five Armies (especially Thorin) Beorn, the Elvenking Thranduil, Bard, 1 Bilbo, maybe 1 Gandalf, Bolg, the trolls Burt, Bill and the other one, an eagle, Dain II Ironfoot. Anyway, that will be an exciting time!
