I've noticed the 'horns' on Saurons helmet are different from both the movie and the figures prototype.

They seem to curve inwards. It's really putting me off. Is this something that can be fixed?

Any news on when Gandalf can be expected in the US?

One thing is for sure, he will arrive precisely when he means to.

No argument here. And it's nice to know that Gandalf will be the one figure out of every toy line that definitely will not be late.

I would like to know if you have news about the other figures that make up the Fellowship of the Ring, fair by Diamond Select. All that's left is Merry, Sam, Pippin and Boromir. I don't want to believe Diamond won't complete this set. I'm begging on my knees for information. Thanks!

I sure hope they at least finish the fellowship! Even if it is a four pack and costs twice as much as the others. If they finish them then I would consider the line a success. Granted there are more figures I want and additional accessories but I can at least feel like it was not a waste. I for one have really enjoyed what they have done so far.

Got Aragorn in (based in the UK). Articulation is better than Legolas and Gimli, face paint is a bit hit and miss. I am disappointed about the swords though, very warped and the edges are very rough, they were not cast well.

The heads are cartoony (and Gandalf’s leg broke when I tried to pop him apart) but the BST AXN Legolas looks good. For the sticklers, apparently he didn’t have that bow and cloak combination at the same time. No idea if they’ll fix that.

That's disappointingly non-committal. I really hope they at least complete the Fellowship.

Yes, I understand not wanting to say ANYTHING before things are set, but it does make me anxious. It would be a real shame if we didn't at least get the Fellowship, and the assortments kind of suggest that a bit more longevity was in the cards, but things obviously change.

Maybe it is just smoke since Toy Fair time is approaching (I know it is canceled, but I would assume many companies will do a reveal cycle around that time), and we will see more soon.

The line feels like it is finding its footing now, so it would be sad to see it go.

At the very least, I want Boromir and Lurtz. I’d like for the line to continue and the Fellowship be completed, but those two would be a partially-satisfying end.

Yeah, but we really do need Sam, Merry and Pippin too, otherwise it's kind of in a wonky place. The Hobbits are what really binds the whole [email protected]#$ saga together.

Oh that is disappointing, was fully expecting they’d be well into production for whatever wave would follow Gandalf. At the very least it’ll be a year or more between waves if we’re lucky enough to get more. Agree that it’d be nice to at least finish the fellowship before it’s over.
