Dwarves vs Armies [In reply to] Can't Post

That's cool. I like the concept.

As for my review, would you want me to type it up in one of my responses to you first?

I'm sure Azog will look BOSS! Bolg appears to be pretty fierce. The Great Goblin is super intimidating! The BD version of him is about 10 times bigger than the 3.75" Thorin. lol I can't wait to get the figures!

Smart move with Amazon. I may apply the same strategy for acquiring certain figures going fwd. I ordered Gandalf and Bolg separately with Toywiz early on. They're the only co that had Nori with Stone Troll available for preorder right now, from what I could find.

I hope you're right! If Thorin would take each Dwarf over the mightiest armies, we're going to require a lot of orcs, goblins, trolls, and so on. lol

More meat on the bone [In reply to] Can't Post

It really adds to it. Try it next time you read one of the books.

As far as the review. I'd suggest writing it up in word and just emailing me with it and I will go about posting it.

From what we've seen of these designs they look really good. Different from the lotr but no less fierce looking IMO. Yeah, the goblin king looks massive compared to the Thorin figure. lol I know! Looking forward to getting some of these next week.

I hope so too. I won't get them all but I know folks will and I hope they get it.

Possible Removal of Legolas and Tauriel [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar!

Will do. I should be getting the figures in the mail next week. Once I have them, I'll begin the review and keep you posted on my progress.

You're right about the designs. They are unique, and I like that they are different from the LOTR versions. I liked the Toybiz figures, but change is good now and then. The orcs, goblins, and wargs have a stellar appearance to them. Giving the dwarves their own looks and personalities was cool too.

I read the article about BD pulling the Legolas and Tauriel figures. I ordered Legolas through TRU, and I hope I get him. I might take a trip there this weekend to see if they have any of the figures yet. If so, I might pick up the L & T 2 pack.

The movie channels have been playing TT and ROTK lately. Guess they're prepping for The Hobbit. lol

Have an AWESOME weekend!

Happy Friday [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank ya :)

Sounds good. It's about to get busy for posting stuff for me product wise. My Snow Troll statue arrives tomorrow from Sideshow, bridge direct announcements, weta announcements, reviews, collector of the week, etc. Gonna be fun.

They do look stellar. Jackson and crew did awesome and tbd did as good translating them to action figures.

Yeah, it seems WB is asking for these figures back since they won't be in the movie. I don't know of the rumor is 100% true, but I've seen it enough places that its worth a mention. So if you go hunting I'd grab some as they will be even more collectible because of this potential issue.

Nice! :)

TRU Update! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, Elessar! I normally wouldn't go on TORN until tomorrow, but TRU has expanded their selection of Hobbit figures online and the online prices are exceptional! I picked up the 3.75" 2 pack of Legolas and Tauriel for $14.99 Also, the deluxe version of the 2 pack of Gandalf and Bolg is $17.99 Fimbul and Warg are up for $19.99 Plus, the Goblin King and Thorin are on there for only $29.99 Best part, over $49 = Free Shipping! Wanted to let you know ASAP.

I actually went to the TRU by my house yesterday. They had a few single figures in store, but for $11.49 That's such a rip off from their $9.99 online price. Grinnah was in store at TRU, but I managed to get him at ToyWiz for under $9.00 Also, Toywiz is one of the only retailers that have Nori and the Stone Troll. Therefore, I could not totally wipe out that order, but I did wind up $aving a bundle thanks to TRU.

The delivery dates vary so I might have to write that review in a few parts depending on when I receive them.

Def let me know if you post a review for the Snow Troll. Collector of the week - is that an award you won? If so, AWESOME and congrats! My week is also busy with work and school. I'll try to write you when I can.

Talk soon!

Intersting [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey! Interesting. I may have to jump on that if I don't see any tomorrow when I check a couple places on the way home from work since at least they have some options available. So I appreciate the heads up as a nice plan B.

That's odd that the online price would be cheaper than the instore price. I wonder if you could show them and they would lower it? I haven't seen a pic yet of Nori and the Stone Troll. Can't wait to see that one as it sounds like a freaking cool set up.

That's fine. Just write in parts and when you're all done we'll get something together.

Will do. Took pics today and will start writing the review tonight. No, nothing I won. We took some entries of people who sent pictures and write up of their stuff. We're going to start posting a few of them just to show some of the cooler collections we received. Will probably wait until after tomorrow since we've had some many posts and will for a few days of new products landing.

Later :)

The Costs of Thorin and Co [In reply to] Can't Post

How did your journey to find the One figures on the way home from work go? lol It's all good. If I could $ave you money, I'll try to hook you up.

Overall, I picked up Legolas and Tauriel, Gandalf and Bolg, Bilbo and Gollum, Kili and Fili, Balin and Dwalin, Thorin and the Goblin King, Fimbul and Warg, and 6" Thorin for under $160 at TRU. Grinnah and Nori and Stone Troll are probably going to run me around $40 So, under $200 for everything, which isn't too shabby. lol

I'm not sure if TRU does price matching, but it would be cool if they did. Should you come across Nori and the Stone Troll set, or Azog, please drop me a message on here.

Sounds like a plan for my review. I'm psyched!

Looking fwd to your review, dude. Let me know when it's up and ready to read.

Have a good 1!

Struck out. So I went ahead and grabbed some from TRU website along with what I have on amazon. I appreciate the offer as thats really kind of ya.

Picked up all the 3.75 inch figures and the big three in 6". All coming this way shortly.

Will do and please do the same if you find it.

Will do again. Gonna write it this weekend when I've got some time.

Chasing BD [In reply to] Can't Post

Bummer. TRU and Amazon hooked up the fan with their prices and free shipping options so that's a plus.

I saw Fimbul and Warg on Amazon now, but it's more expensive there ($24.99) than at TRU ($19.99). I also saw Grinnah on Amazon, but he was being sold from a different seller so shipping was not included = not worth it. Ebay has them all skyrocketed right now.

Besides possible Legolas and Tauriel, it seems like no figure is a chase or rare yet. I'm not complaining, but that's a bit odd I thought.

Nice! I can't wait to have mine in hand! Feels like we're been waiting forever. lol Now that the Wave 1 figures are all coming out, I think it's time BD gave us the list of who is going to be included in Wave 2. No pics necessary, but some names would be ideal.

You can count on me!

Cool beans.

Shipping [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I was hoping but it happens. The real bummer was the amazon order got delayed for some reason. Ill keep my order just because with the other stuff I've ordered a break would be good. lol

I didn't see Grinnah anyplace. That may be one I track down in person. Yeah, don't bother with eBay as you'll get ripped off.

Something will pop up and with my luck it will be Grinnah.

It does but it's all almost here. Funny how time flies really. Which when you're looking forward to something like this I won't complain.

What is a Yazneg? [In reply to] Can't Post

Amazon actually had my copy of the Avengers DVD delayed, ironically. TRU only sent me part of my Hobbit order for some reason. I wonder if there was an issue with BD deliveries and such?

I saw Grinnah in TRU the other day, but I already have him pre ordered. I'm sure he'll pop up again. I would advise trying to search stores this weekend coming up as the figures have been officially released. If you see Grinnah on any websites, can you let me know? I might change my retailer.

Did you see the Yazneg figure? Kind of creepy. Reminds of one of the Haradrim, but with much less skin. lol

That's true!

I was checking out the 19 Weta items TORN posted. They all look AWESOME! Thorin's map and key are pretty cool.

No clue [In reply to] Can't Post

Probably didn't have enough stock which is what I suppose happened with Amazon.

Yeah, when he pops up again ill grab him or if I get a chance to run to a store again maybe ill find him. Either way in time ill get him and the ones I want. I honestly don't mind waiting as with all the stuff that came out funds are a little lower than I'd like.

No, I haven't seen that one. Dang! Gonna have to go look for that one on the net and see if I can find a picture.

They are all very cool. I got gtg, bilbo, and the book. The rest will come over time for the ones I do get.

The Waiting Game [In reply to] Can't Post

Sounds like a possible option. Dark Knight Rises is up for preorder. You know 1 guy that's all over that 1! lol $17.99 on Amazon - not bad.

There is more Grinnah on Amazon and Ebay, but the price is still hefty. Yea, the wait isn't that bad now that we know we got them and that they are en route. My second shipment from TRU was sent. I'm actually on vacation next week so that should give me some time to focus on my review.

If those funds are low, we need to find the Lonely Mountain and try to see if there' anything left for us there! lol

Let me know what you think of Yazneg. To me, he's super creepy. lol

I give you MAD props on your choices of the Weta pieces, btw.

Nice! Ill order it to watch on occasion.

I saw the ones on eBay but those are too rich for me right now. He will be mine though. :) My TRU shipment is on the way so I can mess with those and my Bolg/GTG is on the way as well. So I've got something to look at an with funds tight till my next payday I can wait on my other figures. lol

That sounds like a plan to me. :)

I looked him up. He's cool looking.

Thanks! I'm gonna get a lot of their stuff so ill have to be picky else where.

Grinnah vs. Sloth [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar!

Speaking of Bolg, did you see the weapons he comes with? That is one killer mace! lol His swords are cool too. I can't wait to see what his dad looks like!

From what I can tell, Grinnah and Fimbul must be from different types of orcs or goblins. Still, Grinnah reminds me of Sloth from Goonies a bit. lol I read that he sucks up to the Great Goblin, but secretly despises him. I wonder if he has a part to do with his death?

The wait is dwindling day by day. Hopefully our figures come by Saturday. Either way, Monday is a holiday and I hope you're off from work. I'll be on my way home from Atlantic City.

As for our journey, let me get my mithril. lol

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

Yeah, he comes with some cool stuff. I got my gtg and Bolg two pack yesterday. Both figures look awesome! TBD did a fantastic job with these two and my TRU stuff will e here today I believe. Just waiting on amazon to ship some stuff. When I get paid next week ill pick up Grinnah, 6" Legolas, and 6" Tauriel.

They do look different so maybe it's the breed thing we were talking about. It's the only thing that makes sense to me and makes sense how to tie it in with lotr. He does have that look for sure. Interesting. I would imagine he doesn't and that its all Gandalf but that Grinnah bails before the king gets killed.

Yes, it is. Good thing because I hate waiting. lol nope no day off we have school. Have fun and be safe. :)

Let me grab my sword and we're off.

Arrival of the Middle Earth Beings [In reply to] Can't Post

Elessar, I agree with you on Bolg and GTG. All of my items except Grinnah and Nori with Stone Troll have arrived. They all look AWESOME! I'm going to write up that review and will try to get it to you before next Monday, 10/15/2012.Good luck on your search for Grinnah and the elves. You may want to see if Ugluk is available for hire! If anything, you may already have Fimbul. lol

Not even a glimpse of Nori, the Stone Troll, or Azog yet. What is going on with that?! lol

For whatever part he plays, I feel Grinnah has a bit to do with the Goblin King's death. Either way, I'm looking forward to the battle between hm and GTG. That should be interesting.

Bummer about working on Columbus day. Hang in there. Thanks and will do! I'll be on my way shortly.

They are arriving [In reply to] Can't Post

Mine have started to show up. I got GTG and Bolg from Amazon on Friday both of which look freaking cool! Saturday brought my items from TRU all of which again look really good. The Goblin King is great and heavy! Later on Saturday we stopped at TRU killing time before we went to a local college footbal game and I found a Grinnah among some of the figures they had. My other figures from Amazon are going to be here Monday/Tues I think so its all coming together. :)

I've not seen any of those yet. Nori is all I need to complete my traveling party. Azog I want to see now simply because Bolg looks awesome.

He might and I could see him being the Grima of this movie. I'm with ya there! I just finished The Hobbit again and reading that sequence just gives me a big smile.

We just might want to. They might also be a bit more friendly. lol

Grinnah Found At Last [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, Elessar! How was your weekend?

That's AWESOME! Glad you were able to pick up a Grinnah. You have to let me know who your favorite figure is. I'll be starting to take pics on Wednesday and Thursday then continue to write up my review on all of them.

Nori's knives look BOSS! To see what the figure looks like would be great. Same for Azog. To have father and son fight side by side would be cool, even if one is 6" and the other a tad smaller. lol

The Hobbit - that tale never gets old.

Sounds good! I'll chat with a wizard I know about finding one. In the meantime, enjoy some ale!

Found at last. Found at last. [In reply to] Can't Post

It was alright. How about you?

Yeah, I was really pleased to find him. Especially when they only had like 5 figures on the peg and I just happen to notice before leaving the store. Will do. RIght now just looking at what I have I really like Bolg and the Goblin King. Sweet! Just keep hacking away at it and when you're done I'll get the ball rolling.

They do look really cool. I am really interested in seeing the designs of things we've just seen in text but I'm afraid that might not happen until the movie lands. I hate waiting. lol

No, it does not. I love reading it every year and then roll over into The Lord of the Rings is freaking great (just started on Fellowship Saturday).

As Gimli would say, you have the "eyes of a hawk and the ears of a fox!" My first round of photos is complete. I finally got to open the figures and enjoy them for what they are. Will keep you posted with my progress.

Yea, the waiting is really a BUMMER. Still, I did manage to pass some time reading your review on the Snow Troll. Nice job, dude!

For sure. We're two pretty creative guys, so I think the mix of our thoughts will be appreciated. No doubt some collectors will find our insight to be most useful.

Where are Tom. Bert, and William? Those guys haven't been made yet and I am missing them. lol

Seriously, giving us Bolg and not Azog - what's up with that? lol

Will the luck of the Valar, Kili and Fili have arrived safely to you.

I'll be out of town for a few days. Back soon!
