I do all my decorating with antlers... Can't Post

...has become a meme in fandom. (a comparison between Thranduil and Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast)...

to that, I offer this bit of sciencey fact...

Hilarious! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can see how easily Tauriel can get exasperated with Leggie.

Is that Sebastian the Hedgehog in the first picture? He would be a bit out of place, too.

Love the second one. A Tauriel and Thorin romance would be interesting...I have actually spent an hour comparing the height of Tauriel to all the other dwarf action figures.

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

...is much shorter than I imagined. I got her action figure early on, and went...

Shocked

...she's a hair taller than Thorin. A lot shorter than Legolas.

OK, so she's a Sylvan Elf.

The action figure must be very good. When I saw pics on tumblr of the actress in a scene, I was like...

o__O) Is that the action figure?????

I've always thought the 6" figures were real works of art!

Yup, I had a random hedgehog...

...fandom seems to have decided that Martin Freeman looks like a hedgehog... ie: very cute.

I know that Evangeline Lilly is short. [In reply to] Can't Post

I used to watch Lost - she was shorter than Dominic Monaghan. It seems the action figures are realistic in terms of height. Bolg is HUGE.

Those figures are usually very well made - Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Bolg, Gollum and Legolas, but some others like Bilbo, Tauriel, Fili and Kili made me go - UnimpressedPirateCrazy
Bilbo looked too much like Sam to me and was way too chubby to be Bilbo.
I'm also sad I never found a Yazneg. Spent an hour scouring the store behind racks of Avengers toys. Also took me ages to find Thorin. He was sold out almost every time. I think I found the see-through Bilbo, but it might be Harry Potter. Too invisible to tell.

Now I feel like playing with my action figures and legos.

go outside and play (with a camera)(and your toys)...

I've actually seen some clever "fanart" on tumblr of various action figures (Gollum making snow angels for instance)....

And every last inch of me's covered with hair.....The images.... so not Disney.


As for antler decorating...those antler chandeliers are enough to give me nightmares.
