Thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

From SS figure wise I get some of the clones from SW and some of their GI Joe line. Statue wise from them I'm getting all in for the lotr statues they make plus I'm getting the RWOS Pf as well as the Sauron Pf. From Weta I'm all in for their Hobbit statues. :) Hot Toys I just get their Marvel movie figures.

Thanks for the heads up. I may jump on that. U rock :$

Legolas? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey! How was your weekend?

Nice selections, btw. The Hobbit statues are gonna be AWESOME!

Thanks and for sure! I saw the 5 pack went up in price on Amazon from $29.99 to $34.99 I thought that was a bit irregular. I know Amazon's prices tend to fluctuate, but I could not believe that TRU had them beat! I've been contemplating order the 3.75" version of Legolas. Wish BD had some pics for him released.

It was cool that those code breakers figured out the writing on Dwalin's fingers. Only makes him more intimidating! lol

Hadn't thought about him [In reply to] Can't Post

Mine was good. Watched plenty of football and just enjoyed the nice weather.

They do that sometimes but whatever the lowest price is at shipping is what we'll pay. So we should only pay the $29. Id love to see the Legolas figure and to be honest I had forgotten about him even having one but I'd probably order one.

That was sweet! He's just the coolest looking one of the bunch. I'm curious to see how the character is in the movies. His bust from GG should ship in November and I'm hoping his statue goes up in october from Weta.

Hidden Armour [In reply to] Can't Post

Glad to hear that. I like the new avatar, btw.

Yea, I just hope BD makes Legolas AWESOME! I know he was not originally in The Hobbit so I don't know how big of a role he will play in the upcoming movies, but it would be great to see him take down a few orcs with his bow again along with a few new crazy stunts, like he pulled in the LOTR trilogy. I guess we could see him showing up at the Battle of the Five Armies. After all, his father will be there.

Dwalin looks super cool! I would imagine him being rough around the edges and very stern. Balin looks like more of the intellectual type, but he probably packs a punch. lol I was able to look at the Fili figure up close via Amazon. It looks like he may have two daggers embedded in his forearm armour. That would be wicked!

Interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks! I use that ring pic other places and I thought this hobbit pic with Greg would work good here. :)

Ditto. A good Legolas figure is needed for sure. I think his role in the movie will be medium sized. I also think we will see him in that battle take down a few orcs to the displeasure of some fans.

Agreed! I just love the look as I've said. Those reasons are just a couple ofthe many looks wise why. Balin looks very much like a leader dwarf and why he would want to go to Moria to reclaim it. Really? I'll have to check it out.

Thanduil [In reply to] Can't Post

Seems like Legolas and Thanduil don't see eye to eye, from what I read. Then again, Thanduil doesn't appear to be the type of elf that would trust too many others, let alone a group of dwarves. lol Still, I'm looking forward to seeing the figure that BD produces of him, and the other elves.

If PJ puts the scenes at the end of The Hobbit where Balin was shot in Moria by an orc archer, or where Oin gets killed by the Watcher in the Water, it would be an interesting way to connect the LOTR trilogy. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice extra, but will still be sad to watch. lol

From what I can tell, the amount of accessories vary. THe 3.75" Thorin seems to have Orcrist and a dwarven sword along with his oak shield. Balin only has a mace and a sword. Dwalin comes fully loaded with a hammer, 2 axes, and a knife. Kili has a bow, sword, and a knife. Fili is armed to the teeth with 2 swords, a hammer, and I think those 2 other knives I was telling you about. I can't wait to see what future dwarves have!

Legolas I am your father [In reply to] Can't Post

In curious to see that relationship on screen. Yeah, in the book you can tell he doesn't care for dwarves at all going back many years, but of course that changes as you reach the end. Me 2! Even if I don't buy them all I want to see them all.

I personally would love to see those an if they can be done without seeming out of place too much let's do it. In the end all of this ties together and I want one big six movie epic of time in middle-earth.

It does seem that way. So maybe they will do some kind of weapons pack then down the road.

PS: thanks for being someone I can chat with about Collectibles. It's a little quiet on this side.

Tauriel vs. Legolas [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar!

When you have Dwarves with attitudes such as Gimli's, it's no wonder that the elves don't get along with them. lol I'm curious to see Tauriel's role in the film as well. I read that she's the head of the Mirkwood Elven Guard. Something tells me that her and Legolas might butt heads as far as the dwarves go as well. That would definitely make for a good fight scene. I've never seen two elves battle it out before in Middle Earth.

Six movies of AWESOMENESS! I'll be picking up the entended editions as well, if there are any. I recently purchased Tolkien's World from A to Z: The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth by Robert Foster. I should serve as a good guide myself, for those seeing the film with me. If not, I may need to buy them their own books. lol

A weapons pack would be wicked! They could even break them into races (i.e. dwarves, elves, and orcs). I was looking at the photos of the figures online more closely. I'm not sure if all of the dwarves (Balin, Kili) have articulation at the knee. It would not stop me from buying them, but it's kind of a bummer for setting up battle scenes and such. We can only hope! lol

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

P.S. The feeling is mutual, my friend. Thank you.

It's Friday! [In reply to] Can't Post

Same to my friend :)

Yeah, you see with Gimli early on that there is a lot of distrust, and with what I think we will see in the hobbit that will be fleshed out. I'm curious to see what they do with that character. Since its a created character and all it's gonna be interesting for that reason alone kind of like Lurtz.

Indeed! I have that book. My folks or my sister got me that for Christmas a few years back. It's a nice book with plenty of info to help folks out. I've enjoyed looking at it.

That's a good idea. A races of ME weapons packs. :) I'll have to look at those photos again as I hasdnt noticed that.

Azog - 3.75" ??? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey! How was your weekend?

Perhaps there will be a type of brother/sister relationship, if not a romantic one between Tauriel and Legolas? Less than three months and we'll find out! lol Lurtz was an AWESOME character! I can still remember watching FOTR and clapping in the theater when Aragorn sliced off his head.

Sounds like you have a sister that knows you well. I need to look into that book as the movie nears.

Thanks for the kudos! lol I'm very curious to see what Grinnah, Fimbul, Bolg, and Azog look like when they are made into action figures. I haven't seen anything for a 3.75" version of Azog yet though, which is a bit surprising. Last I checked, there is supposed to be a 6" deluxe figure of him.

He's coming I'd say [In reply to] Can't Post

It was good. AMC theaters had a Indy marathon this weekend that I went to. That was a fun way to spend a Saturday.

Could be. I don't know if they'll do the relationship thing but it's another possibility. I know! Very excited to get my butt in the theater to see part 1. Lurtz was awesome! His death was a great quick action sequence within the fotr.

Yeah, she's a good kid. :) It was a sweet gift and something that means a lot to me. Like I said its a solid reference book to know things about the characters.

No problemo :) yeah, their looks are something I'm very curious about as well. The orcs in the lotr always had cool looks to them so I expect more of the same.

Battle for Middle Earth 1 and 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

Indy marathon - NICE! You gotta love Sean Connery as the father = Pricele$$! lol I visited my friend. He and his fiance got a new apartment so we had a get together over there. Good times.

Lurtz was a cool character for sure. Grishnakh's death was wicked, getting stomped on by Treebeard. I also would have liked to see the Uruk-Hai get crushed by the other ents after they fled form Helm's Deep. I wish PJ would have given Gothmog an dramatic death. As far as I could tell, he was just trampled by the Rohirrim horses.

The orcs did look pretty interesting. I hope they look similar, if not better, in The Hobbit.

I purchased The Battle for Middle Earth and The Battle for Middle Earth II for the PC a while back, but I always played skirmishes. I recently finished both of the good campaigns = AWESOME! I would highly recommend them if you like strategy type games and army building.

Loved 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, it was a blast. Last Crusade is my favorite for many reasons and I do love him as Henry Sr. Very nice of ya. That's what you do for friends of course but moving stinks so bad. lol

Loved seeing TB smash the snot out of him. Just a very early glimpse at the power of the ents. That would have been cool but at the same time it's fun to let the imagination run. His death in the EE of ROTK was pretty cool. So he got a decent death I think.

I'd venture to guess they will. I mean if nothing else the tech in 10 years is better for it I'd think.

Nice! I've played 2 before on my 360. It was a pretty good time just playing something centered in middle-earth. One of my favorites is the ROTK game which I went back and bought last year for $5 for my 360.

Conquest [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be moving soon as well, probably before the end of the year. Yea, I do my best for my friends.

As for the EE versions, I've seen FOTR. I have TT and ROTK, but still need to watch them. Now, I'm looking forward to Gothmog's death! lol

Ents aren't in The Hobbit, but a TB cameo would be cool. I mean, they put Legolas in there so why not?! lol

The ROTK game is AWESOME! $5 was a steal. I used to play it on my PS2 with my father. Did you ever play LOTR Conquest on your 360? My sister and I used to take down the dark forces together. Good times. lol I'm waiting for the LOTR Lego game to come out. I pre ordered that on Amazon.

Less than 2 weeks and The Hobbit figures will be free to roam our Earth - Whoohoo! lol

Played it [In reply to] Can't Post

Best of luck with the move. Those are always stressful.

If you loved the TE of each the EE will be better and you do get that death for which I spoiled.

It would be cool but I'd stay away from that. It's much harder to tie in than say Legolas. Plus you need the shock of the ents in lotr.

Yeah, I loved it when I had it on the ps2. So when I saw it was compatible with the 360 (the original Xbox version) I jumped on it. Just a really fun game. I did have conquest and loved it. Me and some buddies played the crap out of it for quite a while. I've got the Lego game coming from game stop as they have a PO bonus of a Lego Elrond figure. I'm also looking forward to guardians of middle-earth.

I know! I was just thinking about that today. Can't wait to get them. :) :rock

Early Bird on Ebay [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks! Let's hope it goes smoothly where need be.

No worries. I'm excited to watch them!

Did you see the new Hobbit trailer? I enjoyed the first one, but the new one is so much better! You get to see more in depth views of the trolls. I thought the goblins looked odd, but still cool. The wargs look wild! What falls on the dwarves at the end of the clip? Is that a giant? Troll? It looks like half of a body.

Guardians of Middle Earth should be a lot of fun! Let me know how you like it.

There are a few BD figures from The Hobbit on Ebay already. I know it's expected, but what a rip off! For the prices these sellers have listed, I'll be patient and wait it out. lol I actually added Legolas to my TRU pre order yesterday.

eBay [In reply to] Can't Post

I did! This trailer was even better than the first one IMO. These movies are going to be epic. The goblins do look odd but I think it's adjusting to a different breed of Orc if you know what I mean. That was the goblin king that falls on them at the end of that version. He's gross and cool looking at the same time.

Will do. I think it should be pretty darn fun

Yeah, eBay is a rip off for early release items. You can get multiple course for those prices. Nice! I'm gonna order him soon as well.

Fimbul [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar!

Saw your comments on the still shot article of the new trailer. I enjoyed reading what you and the other members had to say. A different breed of orc - interesting. Yea, the Goblin King is pretty gross. I wonder how he dies in the film as Gandalf is with the dwarves in this version when he falls on top of them? The Stone Giants look OUTSTANDING! Those definitely look like spiders legs that break into Radagast's house, but I heard that Saruman kills him.

I'm debating ordering the 6" Azog. I wonder why a 3.75" version wasn't made in the same wave? I want to order Thorin and the Goblin King, but it's pretty expensive to pre order so I might wait that one out until it hits the stores or shows up on Amazon or Ebay. Oh! I saw a pic of Fimbul - that is 1 seriously intimidating orc. I'm not sure who is more scary, Fimbul or the Warg that he rides. lol

Enjoy the weekend!

Happy Friday :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks! I thought about commenting on them all but there were a lot of shots. lol Yeah, I mean why not. I would say its possible so it's something I think that could work. I'd have to go through but I thought someplace Tolkien even describes there being some differences in the orcs. He is very gross. lol I think he'll die like in the books and that scene was just him falling after Gandalf had killed him. Yes, they do. It's cool to see them outside of the war in the north game. That's what I thought watching the trailer as well. Curious to see if we're right. Really? Not sure how I feel about that but it fits the character I think.

I'm still not sure myself how I'm going to mix my buying of these figures. I don't think I'll get all of both but not sure how to choose. Yeah, totally awesome looking. Can't wait to see him in action and the warns for that matter.

Have a good weekend.

Those Angry Wargs [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, Elessar! How was your weekend?

Well, the goblins in this film look pretty cool. Thoughts on the Goblin King's size compared to regular orcs - too many fast-food hamburgers? Genetics? Could it be cannibalism at an excessive rate? I'm not sure, but that dude is HUGE! If Gandalf does kill him, like in the book, how does he fall after the Company is already down there, I wonder?

Yea, I remember reading that Radagast getting killed by Saruman was one theory. I know we see him attacked by spiders, but that doesn't seem to be such an elaborate death for a wizard. He wasn't at the Battle of the Five Armies, so I'm guessing he was murdered before that took place.

I would imagine that the 3.74" line would have more of a variety, but due to the large fan base, BD woukld probably profit more from enhancing the 6" line. The wargs look vicious and aggressive in The Hobbit. I actually like them more than the ones that were in LOTR.

Almost there [In reply to] Can't Post

It was good. Relaxing pretty much and I started my yearly reading of the hobbit which is great.

They do look really cool. Well, I do know he's supposed to be larger than the other orcs. There is a chance he might have been a servant of Morgoth who took orc form. That's a good question.

Interesting. He is still alive during the lotr timeline so that would be a fairly large departure. Curious to see how that plays out.

That's a good question. Which line offers more chances. The 3 3/4 line might because of the price allows fans to buy more. They look nasty. I do like the design a lot based on what we've seen.

Glad to hear that! My weekend was fun. I went to a concert and did some shopping. That's a good annual activity. I might do the same.

So, I saw the article about The Hobbit figures located at TRU in Cherry Hill. I'm jealous. lol Did you ask the other members of TORN if it's alright for me to write up a review on them?

I thought I saw a Bolg and Gandalf on Ebay, but the pic was too small to make it out )-:

Cool idea - Stone Giants in the 3.75 line. They would be much larger, of course. lol I'm hoping to see some orc archers, warriors, and so on.

Giant toys [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks! Cool! That is a good way to get your mind off things and relax. It is. I've done it for several years now and it's something I look forward to. I also listen to the lotr soundtracks when I'm reading and it adds to the fun.

Yeah, they're really out and about now it seems. I haven't. Once they're officially out we'll figure out all the details. Probably have you write your overall thoughts on the line so far.

That is a 2-pack that I've seen out there as well. Bolg looks really good I think and I'm gonna get that one myself. Not to mention can't wait to see him on the big screen.

Right but they so figures like that in other lines so it could be done. Would be cool anyways. lol I think we will see those.

I saw a 2-pack on amazon from them. I'll wait until amazon officially has them or someplace in store starting October first.

Yeah, we 're good guy heavy right now so that's why I think we'll see more random orcs/goblins..
