I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

I love all the Middle-earth products we get. It's not like a fan of Tolkien is forced at gunpoint to by the merchandise. There's a variety of merchandise for a variety of fans. I love the LOTR games, for example. Love LOTRO, and recently got Lego LOTR. These products don't necessarily ruin Tolkien's name, rather they enhance it by branching out to more fans in different mediums who can appreciate it. I also like to collect the figures, and to some they may seem like cheap cash grabs, I think they are fun to collect, as when you go to the store or whatever you never know what you can find, and if you find something you want you get this little joy inside you where you're just bustling with happiness for Middle-earth. Sure, there are cheap cash grabs (the slot machines, for example), but there is a lot of quality LOTR merchandise. Merchandise, for me, enhances the property, and allows it to live on longer than just in a passing memory. It also gives you something to look forward to if we don't have a movie coming out or something like that. Like whilst waiting for The Hobbit movies, we got LOTR games throughout the years (some good, some meh) that gave us that little fix we need to immerse ourselves into this world, or we get a tie-in novel to the films that we can grab and reread.
