Yeah, the new Aragorn baffles me. I saw a nice big pic of him in Action Figure Digest a few months ago and it looks GREAT. MUCH more like Viggo Mortensen than the first crappy Strider figure. Then I finally see the new one at TRU and I couldn't believe it. Since when is Aragorn balding? Ugh... I'm going to have to get him anyway, because the rest of the figure is great, and I need a new Aragorn. The first one just sucks.Originally posted by Twodot Tatooine
I got the Gimli/Uruk and Frodo/Sam 2-packs a couple of weeks ago. They are truly superb! I passed on Elrond and the new Aragorn. The latter is hideous. Also got the new Orc Warrior. Can't have too many Orcs!
The detail on these figures is amazing. That, with their action features and accessories, has forced me to take a shelf from my Star Wars collection and create a Middle-earth display.
It's funny; when LOTR came out, I bought all of the nine Fellowship figures except Frodo, Sam, and Gimlie. I didn't know why, but everytime I saw one in the store, I would pick it up, then put it down and tell myself I would buy it later. Then I found out that all three of them had new figures coming so I waited to get them instead. I'm soooo glad I did; the new Frodo and Sam are AWESOME, and I'm getting Gimli and the Uruk Hai today, but Gimli also looks even better than the first one
