I've heard that Boromir is going to come out as a single packed figure.  Not sure which color packaging.  But an educated guess tells me that it would be in blue packaging.

Oh, and I forgot to mention...I got my Sharku and Warg this morning, too!  It was a LOTR BO-nanza!

Everyone's finding Eowyn's except for me...  :(

But hey, a publisher wants to see my book!  Got the letter in the mail today!   ;D

Still want Eowyn.

Traded for an Eowyn as well, sounds like Wave 2 (Aragorn, Gollum, Eowyn) are showing up on both coasts at Target ;)

Got my latest trio at Target today. Finally, a decent Aragorn! It's lines like this that make me wonder what Toy Biz would do with a 6" Star Wars figure line.

Oh, and I just had to add that Éowyn is THE best figure of the entire line, if not the best ever made in action figure HISTORY. Anyone who does not have this in their collection should be very, very sad.

What do I care? I already have one. And I am that much happier for it.

I cannot describe the bliss in my bosom upon owning this action figure. It is truly a marvel of sculpt and engineering. Would that all could enjoy it, alas 'tis not to be.

All this Eowyn talk only makes me more sad.   :(

Oh, well.  I did get the TTT DVD last night and that gave me my Eowyn fix for the moment.

One day at a time, Spuffy. Perhaps she will come to you. Pray for it.

So should I open her or put her on eBay?  :-\

Have faith, Spuffy. I found it at TRU, of all places. If one can find a one-per-case figure there, it will arrive everywhere so all who want one can get one. I haven't opened mine yet, because I'm still basking in the 1-2 punch of a figure and picture of Miranda Otto-ness.

Have faith Spuffy.  I found the new Aragorn and Gollum this morning, and I missed armored Eowyn.  Just keep looking out.

Thanks for the support, guys.   ;)  I shall keep the faith.  I guess I should be happy for getting two great Eowyn figs after getting none last year.  That was real despair.

Crossbow Uruk Hai is out in the Phillipines.  Should be here soon enough.  He's fantastic!

NICE!  I've been wondering when we'd get just a plain Uruk Hai, and here they give us the crossbowman.  Very cool!

Even in that crappy picture the chainmail looks good! Is the ROTK line going to be the best yet? Is Toy Biz going out with a bang on this property or what?
