No new action figure news before christmas? A missed chance! (+Questions) Can't Post

Well... I don't want to talk about the... not so well done marketing campaign of the Hobbit (at least in Germany) but are there any hints of new action figures coming out?

I mean... it's christmas time. THE season for merchandising if you ask me. Look at the Star Wars franchise... almost every background character has his own action figure. The last film appeared in 2005 and the next one won't come untill 2015 and I'm not just talking about the movies.. also video games, books and tv series have their own figures. And look at our Lord of the Rings toys. A lot of different characters, situations and multipacks. Main characters, background characters a big selection... But for the Hobbit? One wave of action figures and nothing more. The film is out NOW. Christmas is NOW. Who cares in April or May? I think it's again a missed chance! Although I'm not a huge fan of the quality of the Bridge Direct toys I liked at least some of them.

15 different characters from the film... sorry 12 from the film (Legolas, Bolg and Tauriel don't appear in the final cut AUJ). I'm a huge fan of the Fimbul the Hunter with Warg figure and also I like Grinnah the Goblin (although he doesn't look like Grinnah but at least he's a goblin)... I'm sure that I would like the Yazneg one aswell, but there's no Yazneg in Germany (like there's no Gandalf&Bolg and no Thorin&Goblin King either).

Only 5 dwarves out of 13. No Azog on White Warg, no Galadriel&Elrond multi pack, no Radagast the Brown. But we've got Bilbo in different sizes and invisible, we've got Gandalf and Thorin in different sizes too. And we've got Legolas and Tauriel in different sizes, single AND in a multi pack! Why a Thorin&Goblin King multi pack instead of a Goblin&Goblin King multi pack? I really wondered that there's no Radagast&Rhosgobel Bunnies with sledge and Sebastian the hedgehog or a Dwarf on pony pack or a Bombur the master cook... Hopefully they work on it and especially improve their qualities... the figures are nearly as expensive as the Toy Biz figures from LOTR and only a third of the size and almost a quarter of the quality of them...

1) Is there anybody who saw, heard or read something about new action figures for AUJ?

2) Who would be your favorite action figure after seeing AUJ?
