So you may or may not have seen this link to the TRU UK site featuring Yazneg...

Does anybody know what the story is with this? Why isn't this figure in the US? Will it eventually?

I can't give you any answers as to whether it will be available internationally [In reply to] Can't Post

But I have been to a couple of local TRU here in the UK, and they don't have any Hobbit merchandise whatsoever! No idea when they will start rolling it out in store. Unsure

I saw some Hobbit action figures in a local toyshop yesterday. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not Yanzeg though. There was a set with Bilbo and some of the dwarves, and Bilbo, Thorin, and Gandalf in septate packs.

This was Epsom, Surrey, UK.

A Far Dragon is the best kind...

Who knows? Seems pretty arbitrary to me. // [In reply to] Can't Post

Mmmm [In reply to] Can't Post

I intended collecting the 6" Hobbit figures by The Bridge Direct. I've picked up Yazneg three times now at my local TRUs, only to put it back down on the shelf every time.

I cannot justify paying 15.00 ($24.00) for what can only be described as a small, pretty poor figure, with little accessories, in poor packaging.

This one's not in the same league as most of the 6" LOTR ToyBiz figures I'm afraid. Unsure

I assume he will be in wave 2 here in the states.
