    Two Towers Aragorn Rip-Off

    Has anybody else seen the new Two Towers toys? Especially the Aragorn toy.

    Well if you haven't let me enlighten you.

    It's the EXACT same thing as the Fellowship toy, except in the red packaging. Exact.

    WTF? This toy sucked the big one, the first time around, and its sucks twice as much the second time around. Why can't they make a new mold, or least retool it a little?

    I'm still waiting for a damn good Aragorn

    I hear ya Prince Xizor. I've only seen the first wave of the Two Towers figures. They are impressive as hell. The quality is beyond amazing. Toy Biz definatly excedded my expectations of them. I havn't seen the Aragorn figure but I've heard it's the same as the Fellowship version. Which sucks but I'm sure we'll get another version a little down the road. I've head they just re-tooled and repackaged Saruman the White also. But Saurman is cool so they can repackage him as often as they'd like.

    Hopefully the Saruman the White figure is actually white this time, instead of the light grey and tan that the original figure was. I hunted that figure for a long time, and when I finally found it, I was disapointed.

    I have the new Saruman figure, Jar. I don't have the first one, but my friend (who does have it) tells me its the same exact thing as the Fellowship one except with differant accessories. Sorry...

    Aragorn with Brego is the one to pick up. I, too have been unimpressed with the Aragorns up until this point, but I saw one at Target yesterday and its very nice.

    Man! Toybiz kicked big booty with the new TTT figs, didn't they? I had sworn off collecting them when the first ones came out. Now, with the new TTT figs, I am scrambling to get the FOTR figs before they disappear or get relinquished to Ebay for 50.00 per. Too bad I am a completeist. The TTT figs made the cheesy FOTR figs worth having.

    Darth Cruel- How were the FOTR figures cheesey? Just curious! I found them back last November and immediately picked them up. They were great. You might wanna check various Wal-marts cause they JUST got their FOTR stuff in, only about 10 months late!!!

    I'm doing pretty well on the TTT figures so far. I ordered about 80 bucks worth off etoys and i found the first 4 a few weeks back. I think once i find Gandalf and King Theoden, everything else will be relatively easy. I just got a gut feeling those are going to be a huge pain to get. Happy Hunting!

    Yeah, Theoden and Gandalf. Those are 2 I want the most, and the 2 I have yet to find.

    Actually I want the Gandalf with his Horse, that toy just looks Awesome.

    And EP, I picked up the Aragorn with Brego just yesterday, and you are right, it is the one to get. The cloth cape is cool, Articulation is O.K. and his sword rules. I am thinking of getting the single pack Aragorn just so I can have the accessories for the Aragorn that I have.

    I just picked up Eomer the other night at Toys 'R Us. The sculpting is excellent on Eomer. In fact, all of the figures are sculpted well except for Aragorn. The face just doesn't look right at all. I think a neutral, closed mouth might have worked better on the Aragorn figure.

    But overall, "The Two Towers" figures are nicely done!
