    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    The talking feature sounds pretty cool to me - we have the technology to fully integrate it into the figures themselves without screwing up the design of the figure at all. The only one in that anouncement that gives me pause is the "Eye of Sauron" figure. How would one make a figure out of that?! I don't think we really need it at all and would prefer maybe a withered King Theoden or Oliphaunt Driver figure over that. I predict a pegwarmer there.
    I'm really liking the sound of that Lothlorien set! Hopefully it happens and if it does, hopefully well get a fully resculpted Haldir figure in the appropriate outfit rather than the repack of the Helm's Deep figure as ToyBiz always tends toward. Legolas in his silver under-tunic would be nice too - I've got way too many of the same old Legolas figures already.

    Also, I almost forgot to mention that I found something quite interesting at SUncoast the other day - an individually packaged Coronation Arwen. I hadn't heard that Toybiz would be releaseing her this way, and I kind of wish I'd known about it in advance. If they were to do the same for Coronation Eowyn and Faramir then I wouldn't have needed to buy the boxed set, and wouldn't have endedup with extra versions of the crappy and far too short King Aragorn and ceremonial armor Eomer! For anyone wanting the Arwen without having to buy the set, she's out there; save your cash!

    Lord of the Rings Minimates Wave 1

    Has anyone seen Lord of the Rings Minimates Wave 1 at retail yet?

    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    Seen 'em? I own 'em! These things hit all of the TRU stores near me - all five of 'em - in quantity about a month and half ago. Surely you should've seen them by now. Not only have the series one three-packs been out for a while now, but the first series of two-packs have been all over Suncoast stores recently. The two-packs actually make me angry considering that each one comes with a brand new character packed with one of the previously released figures. They didn't even bother to give us different versions of Legolas and Gandalf with the new Gimli and King Theoden figures. Instead I now have to buy yet another Helm's Deep Legolas and Aragorn, Gandalf the White, and Saruman (who wasn't terribly interesting the first time around!) just to get the new guys!

    I might be able to help you out with them if you'd like.

    Also, is anyone out there seeing any AOME Osgiliath Ruins playsets still? I didn't have the cash the first couple times I saw it, and it seems to have disappeared from shelves after an incredibly short time!

    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    I only saw the AOME Osgiliath ruins set once at Suncoast...and never saw it again. Wish I'd bought it now.

    Nope, not in the TRU LOTR section at least. I hit Suncoast almost daily as I dine at Subway in the local mall during lunch. I've never seen the 2 packs


    I did however cash in my Replay rewards & got the NECA Aragorn. Very neat!

    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    I scored a ToyBiz rotocast Battle Troll today at TRU. His head had come off the peg, and was sitting in the bottom of the package (I think that's the only reason it was there). Got it home and got the head back on with a little elbow grease.

    It's a great looking toy. Very well worth the price ($9.99)!

    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    I found the SP Helm's Deep Aragorn today. I wasn't going to buy it, but the head sculpt was so good... Why did it take Toybiz so long to finally get his face right, when all the other characters have been nearly perfect since the line started?

    "So good"? "Face RIGHT"?! I was just about to post about how much he looks like Jason Patric and not at all like Viggo. Plus, he's got no neck. If you say you see Viggo in there, I'll believe you buddy. Sadly, I just don't see any resemblance at all. In fact, I was shocked that they didn't just reuse the same head and body sculpt from the original Helm's Deep Aragorn, retooled for the added articulation. That sculpt was, far and away, the best representation and I actually prefer it (even without the added articulation) to the new one. I may even pass on this one. So disappointed I was.

    Re: Lord of the Rings figures

    When I first read your reply Roojay, I thought you were crazy. Jason Patric? But then I found some photos. Well, he does resemble Jason Patric, but I still think it's a better Viggo likeness than any of the previous offerings. I'll continue to proudly display my "Jason Patric as Aragorn" figure
