I just got a shipping notice on my Frodo!  Looks like we have a wiener!

Me too!!!!!!!  I'm so happy!!  Lately, the on-line stores have been keeping me happily supplied in both LOTR and SW stuff.  I'm on a first name basis with all the UPS and USPS drivers now! ;)

Wow. Elrond. About time he showed up again.

Too bad I've spent all my toy budget.

Oh well. The shipping notice I received said that my Frodo is sitting in Roanoake, VA right now.

My Frodo apparantly shipped yesterday as well.

With all these toys showing up OL, I wouldn't be surprised if they start hitting B&M stores...

I got my Arwen horse set today.  Believe me or not, I never saw this in a store anywhere.  Granted, I really wasn't looking for it until TTT...

My TW Frodo also shipped yesterday.

Yeesh. ROTK is going to have to be the greatest movie in history to move that many reapacks.


On a lighter note, The GD is reporting that the Twilight Frodo figures from KB are the exact same as the chase figure. No differences whatsoever.

exactly Darb, they are sure banking on the fact that people will be so enamored with the product that they will rush out and start collecting these all over again...yowza, looks like I have around 2 or 3 figures left to buy...

And hoping these someday do get made but not holding my breath

Pelennor Gimli (assuming he has a new outfit)
Denethor
Mouth of Sauron
Queen Arwen (this has got to be made!)
Merry in Armor
Army of the Dead Warrior
King of the Dead

I agree on the Merry in Armor...this one needs to be done. I also think Denethor has to be done.
I'd love a couple of different Arwens but I doubt that will happen.  So many figures they could make still it's hard to believe they'd just end it (and lately the figures have been awesome).

My Twilight Frodo arrived today. It's a good thing the market fell out for these. Mine arrived with the j-hook area slightly but noticeably bent, and the bubble beneath the LOTR logo is smashed. It also had an easily-removable white label right over the figure.

Despite these gripes, I'm glad to have it, and might buy another to open if these show at the brick-and-mortar stores.

OCB, on an earlier Trilogy list (from Marz.com I think), it listed further ROTK waves next year which included many of the figs you're hoping for, with the exception of Denethor and Mouth of Sauron.  Personally I think those two and a Gondorian Knight are also in the cards.   The fact there isn't a Gondorian Knight already is more evidence of Toy Biz's hit and miss planning.

I hope my TW Frodo doesn't show up anything other than minty-mint for the price we paid for it.  I'd be upset if I were you, HMI.

I too now own a Twilight Frodo that I can open!  Does anyone need one?  Otherwise I was going to dangle him for an Evil Lyn

I know that since I paid 20 bones for this thing, I should be a little disappointed, but I was able to reasonably fix these problems with a bit of effort. Just wanted to give y'all a heads-up.

The box this thing came in was absolutely huge, and the fig was sitting at the bottom with this stupid airbag thingy taking up the rest of the box. They could have thrown some tissue paper around the package, but I guess they used my $4 shipping for the bigass box.
