Now with pictures! [In reply to] Can't Post

Just a note to add that Elessar's front page post, found here, has been updated with official images of (what looks to be 6" scale) Radagast and Azog, and the 3.75" scale "Bilbo Baggins Burglar Pack" and "Thorin Oakenshield Adventure Pack."

Can't wait for these! [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially Radagast. What I always find strange is how awful the figurines look in the photos at times, but how great they look when you have them in front of you.

All about the photo [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm excited to get my first Radagast collectible. Loved his look minus the bird poop. A lot of the times its more about where and how the photo was taken I think.

Figure photos [In reply to] Can't Post

You guys are right about the photos. One thing worth noting is that in some cases it's a prototype or early production sample rather than the final product. And companies usually heavily "enhance" the images digitally, which isn't always for the better. At least all of the accessories are matched up to the appropriate characters!

I'm most excited about Radagast, too...in both scales. I'm with you on his design. It's perfect, except for the excrement! My only real concern about the figure is that his staff looks way too big, especially the crystal. But that's not a dealbreaker by any means!

Nix the poo [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, that does happen. I like seeing those to be honest. It's cool because you know underneath that was a brand new never had anything done model. Something about that to me seems really neat.

Yeah, they really should have dropped the poo and not on Radagast. Lol the crystal does look a little off.
