Just looked at previewsworld’s website and they list Aragorn/orc AND Gandalf/Uruk-Hai releasing next week. Won’t know for sure til Monday.
Not very likely from the very post by MSWord a few posts up.

I'm definitely in on this line. I'm curious to see how deep it goes. Any word on when the next wave gets revealed? And I see some people have Aragorn...but what's the eta in the states for him?
Not sure about the next reveal, but hopefully we'll get Series 3 in the Diamond Comics warehouse by the end of the year, shipping delays are real.

Yeah, that is not correct. You need to check this week and next week's ship lists to see accurate toy shipping information. Next week's is only finalized on Wednesday. Otherwise it is all estimates, usually based on old info.

Great shots! I want a couple more Wraiths now!

I just got a notice from BBTS that wave 3 is hitting my POL soon!

I thought we were going to see these until after the holidays, maybe it's fake news? Im so confused lol

I just saw the BBTS email as well.....strange. I'll be happy if it happens...but I doubt it will based on what we are hearing. Usually BBTS is pretty good about that sort of thing though. I've never seen them jump the gun and say they are getting stuff in soon and not deliver. What's everyone else's experience with these emails? Have they been pretty accurate?

I got that email as well as one for Iron Giant. Hopefully they brought stock over themselves & this is legit. I guess we'll find out soon enough!

They've always been accurate for me, though some items hit faster than others after the notice, it can be a bit random. I got a notice last week about a few Hiya Predator figures, but they haven't hit my POL yet, and I had another figure a few months ago that took almost a month to hit after I got the notice, so who knows!

I got the e-mail for Wave 3 as well from BBTS. They've never been wrong in the past when they have given me such info to expect a product soon, so I'm hopeful we get them. If we don't though, being all that's going on in the world, I will totally understand. But still, fingers crossed.

Ordered a Ringwraith and Frodo from Dorkside. Looking forward to testing this line out. I always love Ringwraiths.

Just got my Ringwraith in, decided to dip my toe into this line. Absolutely love it, probably going to play catch up (at least for the BAF Sauron waves).

So....wave 3 just hit my POL at BBTS. I'm surprised it actually hit this soon.

Series 3 hit for me too! A day after I shipped series 2, of course, but I'm not complaining. It'll be great to have an army builder and a complete "faction" of the Fellowship. Gandalf is one of my most anticipated figures, so I'm eager to be one step closer to him, as well!

Mine hit too, glad I waited to click the "ship all" button! Man, SDCC Gollum/Frodo, Wave 2 and wave 3, and 13 other figures are in this shipment. It's gonna be a fun one to open!
