Quite so, I am afraid.

I did find a Cirthxlxlxlxhxkfhfoeicl Uruk-Hai today, if anyone wants one.  Also grabbed another two Ring Wraiths, but still no accursed Arwen.  Aggravating, to say the least.

The search for Arwen is over :)  Also picked up a second Moria Orc Archer and a Lurtz.  Left everything else behind.

Yeah, I just noticed that news over at theGD.com this morning too, pretty cool.  I was curious how much longer this line would continue after the movies, but its good to see it has some legs.  My collection is pretty limited, but some of these other figures are making it more and more tempting to delve further into the world of LOTR.  Thanks for posting the link!

It's like what I said on the way home form Toys R Us on the way home: "What must make these Figures so darn cool?" I wanted to get all the giftsets there, but I could get a Shelob and a Rings bearers giftset, because I could ton of vintage MOTU; OTC Figures (plus VOTC Vader); Marvel Legends Urvab Legends Giftset; and Black Gates of Mordor Giftset a few days ago.

We're just seeing the multi-packs and Fell around these parts, haha.  Gotta alert my bro I guess.  :)

Super Articulated Versions from TTT  Boromir with Armor

I believe I missed on Gamling, glad I got the Orc though, he's freaky looking

They had the pegwarmers from ROTK 3 there too, I still have yet to spy Shelob and Gimli who I need

Happy to trade you Shelob and Gimli if you like Scott. 

Gamling wave arrived here at Walmart and promptly disappeared.  I fear I made an error leaving the Orc, Boromir and Gamling on the pegs.  Alas, such is life, I have no need for these fellows.  Agreed on the Isengard Orc though, quite a different piece from the other Orc.

Damn, you guys are scoring big time.   If it wasn't for paying twice the price at amazon, I'd still be two waves back!!

Anyways, care to share your thoughts on yet another Frodo and Aragorn Scott?  Since I collect loose, is it worth it to hunt these down or are the sculpts pretty close to the others?

The Aragorn looks very nice, haven't ripped them open yet.  Frodo looked nice too but I didn't really give him a full once over.   Looking forward to some major LOTR opening though.  I was thinking about thinning the LOTR collection a little but decided against it after these last two waves...amazing figures!

Nice to hear this wave is starting to show up.  I'm really looking forward to the Aragorn and Frodo personally.  I got into this late, and don't have versions of either of these characters yet, and was holding out to see what these were like.  If you have the time, when you open them Scott, I'd like to hear your opinions on both of these...if they are the "best" versions of these characters, or at least in these particular forms.  Even though the movies are through and done with, this is a line that continues to tempt me to expand it more and more.  The latest figures have all looked pretty spiffy.

Has anyone seen the minimate two-packs of Legolas/Gimli or Gandalf/Theoden yet?  If so, where?

Who knew Canada would be the hot spot!!??  If you see Gamling again, I'll be more than happy to provide a place for him in the good ole USA.  ;)

Yeah, I've seen those mini-mates near me.  Also finally found the Sauron mini-mates at Tower Records.  I was begining to think those were just a figment of my imagination.
