Any FLASHBACK figures? Can't Post

Do any of think that The Bridge Direct will do any flashback film characters in it's action figure lines coming up? Thrain in his armor or as the crazed half dead character Gandalf will face in Dol Guldur! How about Thror, King of Erebor! Any others? Weigh in.

I imagine so [In reply to] Can't Post

If there's money to be made, then there will be figures. Wink

Why? They missed the great chance to produce new action figures when the film came out although the movie came out in perfect "christmas present buy time". THE best time for new merchandising! And now it's too late for the big money... hopefully they improve their marketing campaign for DOS... we see the result at the box office and in our local toy stores Unsure

Lt. of Dol Guldur who do you.... [In reply to] Can't Post

think will be the new action figures or who is most likely to have figures for Desolation of Smaug? We saw the first wave for the Bridge Direct line...which included some figures that probably should of been a part of DOS's collection instead of AUJ such as: Legolas, Tauriel and Bolg (none of whom were featured in AUJ)

I am hoping for at least 5 new Dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

of Thorin's company and Azog with white Warg to be released. I wonder if BD will release a huge Smaug toy? Will it have electronic sounds with phrases from the movie? I wonder if it will be too late to get any of the Stone Trolls as larger figures? As they are from AUJ. Its a good question to wonder about if BD will concentrate on DOS characters and not bother with any characters that are only in AUJ. Seeing as Tauriel, Legolas and Bolg will be in DOS, these 3 will probably be released.

Answering the question that started the thread, i wouldnt mind prologue characters, once all 13 Dwarves have been made first though. Those are the most wanted i would expect, by me they are anyway.

I have seen..... [In reply to] Can't Post

the Legolas and Tauriel 2-pack, but not the Gandalf/Bolg one. Did they recall the Gandalf/Bolg 2 pack because I have not seen it at all! Maybe they are holding back proliferating the item and will re-release for DOS? I suspect Thranduil gets more than one figure: 6 inch., 4 inch and possible 4 inch w/ his steed (TABA). Beorn I expect for DOS as well: 6 inch and 4 inch w/bear form as a beast pack I presume.

Yes it seems... [In reply to] Can't Post

as though they would need to release the remainder of the dwarf company as well as Azog and his white warg for the AUJ lineup,possibly Yazneg as well. If the DOS wave 1's come out next year in the fall( October like AUJ's did) then it would seem there would be these additional AUJ figures before then. Unless they are making the DOS collection have more items. What do you think?

Bolg/Gandalf [In reply to] Can't Post

Here in the UK, the Bolg/Gandalf pack is only available in one shop that i have seen, Argos. I have not seen this pack available anywhere else, so maybe it is an exclusive.

Holy guacamole, I'm THERE! I started collecting the 6 inch figures, but I really get the feeling the 3 3/4 line will have all the good stuff. If TBD
make the trolls or Smaug (a must!) they will be 3 3/4 scale. unlikey 6 inch. Toy Biz dropped the in scale Balrog due to production costs, if that
was true 10 years ago, a 6 inch scale Smaug is not really on the cards...
