"The Hobbit" action figures wishlist

"The Hobbit" action figures wishlist Can't Post

Well I've got all of the toybiz LOTR action figures, and I'm hoping that "The Hobbit" films will produce new ones

....and also that, like Star Wars, it will encourage them to make new figures from the LOTR trilogy

for example, they PLANNED "Epic Trilogy" Wave 3 and Wave 4 but then cancelled the set:

Wave 3:
Contains: Aragorn w/ Light-Up Palantir, Super-Poseable Legolas, Easterling w/ Banner, Orc w/ Banner and Corsair

Wave 4:
Barrow Wight, Birch Ent, Rosie Cotton, Berserker Uruk w/ Bomb, Aragorn w/ Red Sleeves at Rohan, Wulf the Wild Man

And I mean I was actually looking forward to a new different Easterling, a Corsair, Barrow Wight, alternate Ent, Dunlanding, and Rosie Cotton. I mean I can do without YET ANOTHER Gollum (they seriously thought kids would love Gollum like Dobby from HP, so apparently literally half of the box sets of figures sold as a unit to stores were just Gollums; no one bought more than one Gollum or ONLY Gollum, so they were overstocked)....or YET ANOTHER Legolas (in the sense that we've already got him in pretty much every costume he appears in (FOTR costume, Helm's Deep Shoulder Armor, his Council of Elrond robes and maybe even his coronation outfit?).....so they just keep making "Legolas; sword slashing action!" (ugh) while other characters have no figures.


So, who is on you "Action Figure wishlist" for "The Hobbit"? and what characters never got action figures from LOTR that you'd like to see them make?


Hmm....as for LOTR, it's just rounding out everyone who appeared in the films. Barliman Butterbur, maybe a Council elf or Gloin or something (no big need for that), all of the above figures (Rosie Cotton, Corsair, Dunlanding, alternate Ent, even a Barrow Wight)

does anyone have the limited edition Peter Jackson as a Hobbit figure?

Maybe like Celeborn or Haldir.....Watcher in the Water? Everyone from Rohan has a figure (even like Gamling and Hama) but I'd like them to make figures of all of Eowyn's various costumes. And like Cirdan. But again, this is just to exhaust all options.


but as for the Hobbit, I want them to make two Beorn action figures, scaled to the size of the extra-large Treebeard action figure, one of him in giant-man form and another in giant-bear form.

Also Gwaihir the Windlord, and they're going to make a few of several Misty Mountains orcs like the Great Goblin and Bolg probably.....and some of the Stone-trolls......they're probably going to make another alternate Warg figure, though the one I already have is good enough for me.....

probably a set of smaller Mirkwood-spiders, smaller than Shelob-figure was....

Thranduil, Bard, and Dain most likely;

basically I'd just like to see a lot more action figures devoted to the separate dwarves

and what if they make the "Appendix" movie? What figures could we have then?
