After seeing the Comic Con pics all I can say is wow! I loved the FOTR figures and it looks as though they're improving them throughout the line.
One thing I'm happy about is that there is not a single figure on their lists that I don't want to buy! Obviously that may change once I see them in person but so far they've made a great selection of characters to start off. The line is almost perfectly split between new characters, resculpts of a few originals, and generic army builders (and for anyone who hasn't read the book, the battle in The Two Towers will make the Battle of Geonosis look like childs play So those army builders will make me VERY happy)
The Sauron figure looks incredible as well; towering over all the other figures. I can't wait for these! Hopefully Toy Biz will have learned a lesson from the first line about how to distrivute properly and we won't see a 10 month gap in between waves
