Whoa. That's a long name for the Aragorn figure. Still, it's neat.
I'm hoping that Gollum is better than the piece of crap we got for the TTT line.

It be Eowyn in Armor, albeit a lousy photo. The tard turned the card the wrong way.

It's at $27 at the time of this writing. The same seller has a Pelennor Aragorn at $35. Can these people not hold their wads or what?

I can't believe that people are willing to pay that much over retail.  Especially when these figures will be readily available at retail in a relatively short period of time.

Eowyn!!  Eowyn!!  ;D

I remember thinking when TTT came out how royally she got the shaft, and now here we're getting two great Eowyn figs at the same time.

And yeah, these people need to learn restraint.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I bet the solid cases of Twilight Frodo would be in a blue ROTK box. As long as it has that Eye of Sauron in the background, it doesn't matter to me. I just want one to keep my basic 6" collection complete.

I agree with HMI.   Red, blue, periwrinkle, I don't care.

Wait for the toys...

Meijers, Targets, and Wal-Mart are getting in the ROTK toys now. So far I have picked up all that is available except for the Eowyn and Prolog Bilbo.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

The Target here hasn't put out any 6" basic ROTK figures yet, and TTT comes out on DVD Tuesday. Way to capitalize, you commie tards.
They STILL have an army of King Theoden, the first version. That's the only figure they have on the pegs. Even Gollum completely disappeared before the royalty of Rohan.

WOOHOO!  Traded this morning for Eowyn, and bought a Prologue Bilbo a little later!

Lucky you...

I preordered Eowyn and Bilbo from TRU.com just so I wouldn't have to look.  I've seen the rest now at TRU or Wal Mart, except for Series 2 (Aragorn, Armored Eowyn, Gollum) which I'm REALLY looking forward to...

Well, if it's any consolation, I haven't seen Pelenor Fields Aragorn or Armored Eowyn yet.  Also, I paid $15 for Bilbo.  I thought it was a little high, but not crazy.

I found Eowyn at TRU today, no Bilbo. Oh well.
I thought her hair was supposed to be more blonde. Meh. It's still cool.

Edit- I read that TRU.com has a red-boxed Boromir up for pre-order. I didn't check, but does anyone know?
