I've just been trying to keep up with what is coming out in the future, and what was shown at Toy Fair (via TheGD and LOTRGuide). There is still a part of me who would like to get a few more of the main characters, not a huge collection, but just a handful. With what you collectors know that is upcoming, or what you have seen, who would be the best ones to pick up and/or wait to come out? I kind of like when they do super-poseable versions (as long as they have great likenesses), and was leaning towards those. Here are the characters I'd like to pick up:
Strider/Aragorn - Just about got the Pellenor Aragorn, but wasn't sure if I liked the "screaming" face. Any better ones available in your opinion?
Gandalf - I have been leaning towards the Gandalf the White version.
Legolas - I have the Rohan Armor version, any ones that are better?
Gimli - From the pics, the ceremony version looks kind of good I thought (and is super-poseable?)
Frodo - not sure, I thought I saw that a super-poseable one was coming up?
Sam - no idea, I hear the boat one is good.
Merry and Pippen - I was thinking the "armor" versions from ROTK, any thoughts?
If any of you have any advice for me, I really appreciate it. I'm not nearly as up on this line as Star Wars, so I always look to the experts with any questions. My wife isn't crazy about my collecting budget the way it is (spent over $100 on SW stuff this year already, which is high for us), but if I can pick one up here or there...I'd like to have in mind who I'm looking for. Thanks for any info everyone.
