Kili and Fili [In reply to] Can't Post

Awesome! Congrats man. :)

I agree. It's good for folks to see that there are many good things about this line from multiple people.

That's a good question. I would imagine they'll be in eve 2. We know what they look like so it's just a matter of time.

Maybe he will be in wave 2 if they show a flashback to Azog and his battle with the dwarves.

They have arrived. I'm all set now on 3.75 in figures from wave one it seems. Just gotta get time to do my review and pics. lol

Be safe :)

Bolg and Boba [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks, dude! It's a big move for me (mentally, emotionally, and physically).

How was your weekend?

The Flashback to Azog and the scene where Dain cuts his head off would be pretty cool. It would be more moving to have Bolg there watching as this happened. It would build up his anger towards dwarves. Reminds me of Boba Fett watching Mace Windu behead Jango. lol

Glad all of your figures have arrived! I'm looking fwd to our combo review on here.

As for Wave 2, I'm hoping they come around before Christmas!

Interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

No problem. I don't doubt that at all.

It was good. We got wet as all good out from the Mizzou game but other than that it was good.

That's not a bad idea to be honest. I wouldn't play it exactly like SE but that's a good idea to base it off of.

Yeah, it's nice to have them all. If you check out TORn's FB page you will see a couple of shots I took. Took pictures of my Weta stuff after grades where done. Will write those reviews this weekend. Me 2. I hope people enjoy reading your thoughts.

Merry Christmas 2 us :)

From Nain to Dain II [In reply to] Can't Post

Glad to hear that. A little water is good for the earth. lol My weekend was fun. Went to a friend's bachelor party in Point Pleasant on Saturday. Sunday, I took the day to recover. lol

Thanks for the props! Plus, who doesn't want to see the battle of Azanulbizar? Nain dies and it introduces Ironfoot in The Hobbit. This way, when he returns at the Battle of the Fives Armies, people understand his history a bit as well.

Might just check that out. Ditto! Do we have an ETA on our TBD review? No rush. I'm just curious.

Seriously, Christmas seems a while away, but I know it will be here before we know it. The Hobbit is less than 2 months away - WHOOHOO! lol

Dwarf History [In reply to] Can't Post

It's good for the earth but not for me when I dang near drown. lol Sounds like a good time.

I think we will see that and I'm sure it will look great. This should be a very impressive moment much like the battle of the last alliance was at the start of FOTR. Plus the emotional impact it will give should be something most of us want to see.

No not yet. I've got to write mine plus a load of other stuff. I'd like to get it all taken care of within the next week.

It will be here pretty quick. It seems like ages ago we saw the initial trailer but we're almost to the finish line for part 1. :)

Where are the Rest of the Dwarves? [In reply to] Can't Post

Whenever you get wet unintentionally, think of the Dwarves rolling down a river in a barrel. You may feel better. lol

I hope your right about this battle. Unlike the the Battle of the Last Alliance in FOTR, I hope this one is a bit longer. I know the film is probably going to be over 2 hours in length, but that battle scene should be pretty AWESOME! To cut it short just doesn't do it justice in my book.

Sounds good. Please keep me posted.

With the film's kick off nearing, I'd imagine that BD would want to release figures of the remaining dwarves by December. That would be the most strategic road. Sure, there are a lot of fans for LOTR and The Hobbit, but other consumers' interest should lessen over time. "Get them while they're hot!" lol

Wet like a rat lol [In reply to] Can't Post

I can totally relate to how they might have felt. lol it's been a long time since I was that wet.

I think it will be about the same to be honest. It will make for a nice flashback sequence but I don't think you can make it too long. So if they match it for as long as the LA sequence was that's ok.

Will do.

I'd think they'd want to and it's something I'd expect to get info about fairly soon. I agree though you have to strike while the iron is hot.

Thror [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope we get ot see Azog slay Thror. If I have to settle for a short battle scene, I at least hope we get to see Dain take down Azog. The Battle of the 5 Armies better be longer! lol Though, I'm sure it will be.

As far as The Hobbit figures go, I liked Thorin and Dwalin the best. To me, they seemed to be the best all around.

Not sure if you're into SW figures, but the Vintage collection has some nice items coming out at the end of November.

Let us hope! lol

History [In reply to] Can't Post

That's one of those things I'm really looking forward to seeing among many many things of course. Its the Dwarven history that I am very curious to see whats included and just how it will make the movie version of middle-earth so much better.


Both of those are really good but I also liked Bolg and Gandalf.

I like them but honestly outside of the figures for The Hobbit and a few of the LOTR ones I still have I stay to statues and those types of items.

Bolg the BIG [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar!

Yes, it will be amazing to see the history of the dwarves! Plus, it would give the audience a better understanding of how Thorin and Company came up this adventure. We should also get a glimpse of Smaug, if they show the sceen where the dwarves originally espaced from Erebor.

Bolg was pretty awesome! Besides the Goblin King, he is the biggest orc I've ever seen! Definitely works out. lol

The statues are cool. The Clone Wars is an interesting series. I pre ordered Season 4. For figures though, I think I like the Vintage Collection better.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Happy Friday [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree. I love this fictional world a lot an I love history so mixing the two here would be fantastic. I mean seeing what Tolkien described in the dwarf hairier coming to life. I would think a small glimpse of Smaug would be acceptable by Jackson and the team.

They're two of the biggest for sure outside of the Uruk-Hai.

For sure. As I've said that's what I collect. I'm gettin these because I really think they're good and I want something like that coming out of these films. My collecting heart belongs to the statues as they're great captures of the movies with the feel of the books.

I have season 4 on PO as well. Will have to watch it all when it arrives as I skip it until that point.

A Smidge of Smaug [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, dude! How was your weekend?

I can almost see Smaug's part in Unexpected Journey being a shadow and perhaps gleaming eyes, but Jackson is probably going to hold back the full view until the second film. Though the dragon in all of his splendor will be glorious, I'm sure.

That high resolution shots of Bolg were neat! The detail is excellent! That mace really is huge too. I thought that might have only been for the action figure. lol

I haven't watch CW Season 4 yet, but I am excited to finally see it! My dad loves the show as well.

LOTR TT and ROTK have been playing constantly on the premium channels lately. I feel like my DVDs are always on. lol

Smidgen of Smaug [In reply to] Can't Post

It was alright. Did some running around and found the TORn magazine, read fotr some more, and played some MW3. U?

I think we will get something like that. I also heard there may be a scene after the credits so maybe a bit more then. When we do see him it's going to be awesome!

I saw those. He looks gross. I hope he looks as good in action as I think he will be. The whole thing about him is big as in his size and his weapon. A larger than life Orc.

Nice! I love watching them but I do have to space it out so I don't over do it. That's why 1-2 times a year is good and reading them once a year is good.

Bolg the GIANT [In reply to] Can't Post

Sounds productive. I watched a lot of movies, exercised, and bought some items for my new apt. I move in come November.

An extra scene after the credits = AWESOME! Thanks for the heads up.

Seriously, Bolg looks like he takes steroids...often. lol I think he has the bone structure and muscle mass of an Uruk-Hai. If all orcs were shaped like him, they would have given the Fellowship more of a run for their money.

I typically watch any films form LOTR whenever they are on TV. They are some of my go to movies. lol

When do you think we'll hear anything on Nori and Azog? It's been too long not to have pics of them, in my opinion.

He a biggen [In reply to] Can't Post

It was for the most part. Yours sounds more productive especially with you getting closer to your move in date.

No problem. I'm very eager to see what it is but mostly just eager to see the movie.

He does seem built like a Uruk. Which as we saw at Helm's Deep gave them a good fight.

I understand that. When they first came out I watched them all the time. You do start to feel burnt out a bit so I manage that by making the anticipation build until I see them again.

I don't know. I would think probably right around when the movie comes out r shortly after.

Hobbit Cartoon [In reply to] Can't Post

Imagine an army of Bolg clones - WOW! I wonder if his orc subjects will look similar to him. Azog should be fairly large as well.

Did you ever see the old Hobbit cartoon from decades ago? I wasn't really a fan, but they must have been cool for back then.

Dude, that is too long for Nori. lol I really hope he's worth the wait.

Attack of the Bolgs lol [In reply to] Can't Post

That would be scary just based off the figure and the picture. I would venture to guess they will. I'm curious to see if and how many might look like the Moria style Orcs. Azog I would think would be of the same size as Bolg as it would just make sense.

I saw them but didn't think much of them so I don't remember how good or bad they were. lol

I know. I know. I hate waiting as well but we will make it as we have great items to keep us going until then. :rock

My plan is to actually start it this weekend. I wrote two of my Weta reviews last weekend and have one more to write. I was also waiting for something to arrive in the mail from TBD that I wanted to include in the review so now that its arrived I can get started.

Council of Elrond [In reply to] Can't Post

Even if I had an army of dwarves at my call, I would be intimidated by an army of Bolgs. Sure, the dwarves beat the orcs and wargs, but with help from the eagles, men, and elves. I have faith in the dwarves, but I don't know how they would do against an army of massive orcs that probably have the strength of Uruk-Hai. lol

Good point. The standee for the movie looks pretty cool. Gandalf in front of Bag End. Very original and most appropriate.

Sounds cool. Can you keep me posted on the write-up?

I read that the Council of Elrond met today to discuss the fate of the ring. Imagine what it must have been like to be there? WOW!

Would be cool [In reply to] Can't Post

That would be a challenge for anyone for sure but I think Dwarves could do it. Especially with how awesome Gimli wsa.

It look great and I want one. I have no ide what I would do with it though.

Of course. As soon as its ready I'll send you what everything will look like for the most part.

If it was real I'd imagine just watching it would be cool. Which is whats great about the movies is it lets you see what it would have been like if real.

The Young Gimli [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday, Elessar! What's up for the weekend? I'm hosting my father's 65th birthday bash! It's a 2 party celebration that lasts an entire day.

Gimli was pretty AWESOME! Being as dwarves live a few hundred years, I wish Gimli could have joined his father and the other dwarves in Thorin and Co. I know it was said that he was too young then, but it would have been cool to have a dwarven character go through The Hobbit and right into LOTR.

As for the standee, you could put it front of your actual door. lol

Cool beans on the review.

That's true. Whenever I watched the films, I always felt inclined to help the members of The Fellowship.

Enjoy your weekend!

Love Gimli [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Friday to you as well. :) Well, kind of a repeat of last weekend. lol Sold some stuff that I have to mail and I am going hunting for hard copies of the new Empire Magazine. Then I believe on Sunday we're taking my grandfather out for his 84th B-Day (which was Thursday) and my 31st B-Day (which is Monday). I'm taking Monday off from school to just sleep in and enjoy the day. Hope you all have a great day celebrating your dad's b-day Cool

Yeah, of course I'd have loved if Tolkien would have included him. He's one of my favorite characters in all of Middle-earth and he is my Dad's fave. I will say though him not being in it really is a good thing because you learn to love the other Dwarves for different reasons and not because you have a familiar Dwarf with them.

You know what would be cool to have a little collection room and that be the entrance.

Yeah, I'd love to have tagged along and helped The Fellowship out. :D

Hey, man! How was your weekend? Dad's party was pretty AWESOME, thanks! Happy birthday to your dad and Happy birthday to you as well! Anything from planned. I'm actually working from home tomorrow (Monday) due to the hurricane.

Yea, Gimli ROCKS! I wish I could have seen more of Haldir fighting. He seems like such an interesting character.

A collection room would be pretty BOSS! Someday, perhaps...

If you could have been involved in LOTR, what would you have been and why? Like Elf, man, dwarf, etc?

Have a GREAT birthday!

Thanks :) [In reply to] Can't Post

The Weekend has been good. I'm extending it by taking Monday (my b-day) off just because for no other reason. lol Good! Thank you! :) My folks took me and my grandpa out for our B-Days so it was a nice day. Honestly, I have nothing real planned. Normal get ready for the rest of the work week stuff since the day falls during the week. Be safe!

He does. He's my dad's favorite character so my couple of collectibles on the character mean a lot to me for that reason if nothing else. Haldir seemed cool. I mean you don't get much of him in either but I liked the look of his armor in TTT.

Yes, it would. Oh yeah! Someday it could happen but thats a ways off.

I'd be a man. I'd imagine myself to be something like Aragorn. Someone who is caring and willing to help out because its the right thing to do. How the character is written in the books and how he is in the movies differ some but I can totally relate to both and see small bits of myself in those. I just love the Gondorian culture and how beautiful it looks. What about u?

Thank you so much. :)

I was wondering how you were. I assume you made it through all right besides the power issue?

Being a dwarf is a good choice as well. Gimli and the Dwarfs of The Hobbit are good example.

Going to try to get pics today. Just not getting the time to really make an headway on this. Little ticked at myself that I haven't.
