BBTS might have some, but it's slim pickins since the line's been dead for about a year now.

I'd also try checking your local TRU. Mine still has a few Mega Buy packs that have 3 figures for $10, though the selection usually includes a variation of Strider/Aragorn, the same for Legolas, and Gothmog.

Bumping up an oldie here, but with all the Hobbit hype I've been looking at my LOTR collection again.  The Toy Biz line was one of those where I always wanted to get into it deeper, but for one reason or another I never did.  I ended up with around a dozen figures from the various lines I believe, but always wanted to have the "Fellowship" to display.  One figure I never did get was a Boromir, and I was wondering if anyone here could recommend the best one for display.  I know there were a few, but I just wanted to check.  Actually, when I think about it, I do need to get "Fellowship" versions of a few others (like Merry/Pippin, Strider, and Gandalf the Grey since I have versions from other movies) so if you have any recommendations for those figures as well, I'd be glad to hear them.

can anyone help me out that has more knowledge about the Toy Biz line?  i.e.  Are there any other figures/beasts that are in scale with this new, The Hobbit, line?

I am going to post this in The Hobbit thread too

It may be due to the Star Wars "break", or just the fact that the release of the Hobbit has gotten the Lord of the Rings fires burning again, but I've been looking into tracking down some figures from the original Toy Biz line.  At the time of release, I couldn't really afford to get into it to far, and only have a dozen or so figures from the various lines.  Although I don't really have any more display space now, one thing I always wanted to do was have the best version of each of the members of the Fellowship.  I've been researching it a bit online to try and remember all the figures, but I thought some of you here who collected the line more might have a quicker/better answer for me.  Do you know of the best versions of each of the members from the Fellowship?

Aside from Boromir, I do have other versions of all of them, but some are from other movies (Gandalf the White, Legolas, etc.).  I have what I believe are called the super poseable versions of both Frodo and Sam, and I'm not sure if Gimli had a different version either, so I've got a few to start with.  Were there any other Fellowship versions of Merry/Pippin other than the initial two pack offerings?  I also know there was a superposeable Strider available later on in the line, is that the best version?  I know they had their difficulties with the Aragorn head sculpts throughout the line.  I really like the Legolas figure I have, but I do believe it is from Two Towers.  I know there are a number of multipacks as well, but I thought I remembered the figures being re-releases there for the most part.  Anyways, I'll be looking into it more, but I thought I'd ask for any advice anyone might have.  Thanks!

I found a fairly decent archive of Toy Biz Lord of the Rings figures.  I think some of the better FOTR figures were the ones that were offered on the later smaller cards.

The Fellowship 9-pack has always been one of my favorite pieces in the line since it had all of the characters AND the likenesses were pretty good.  But I also really liked the Frodo & Sam 2-pack with the Elven boat.

Thanks for the linky Nicklab, that's exactly what I was looking for.  I remember (during the run of the LOTR figures) checking stuff out at the Green Dragon.com, but that site seems to have changed or left since then - this is a nice archive to be able to jog my memory as to what is out there.  Thanks so much.
