Was the Toybiz Sauron a big figure or regular sized? The size of the DST figure is what prompted me to go with DST over the AXN line.

Toy Biz Sauron was a standalone oversized figure. Maybe 8” tall.

I'm pretty sure the TB Sauron was at least 10" tall.

OT Customs is a reliable seller, but their communication is horrible. I haven’t heard of him stiffing anyone, though. I was tempted by the LotR cloaks, but funds were a bit tight when they were initially offered. Then I forgot about them.
I ordered his 1/6 mando full upgrade kit when he announced it and it was about 5 months before I actually received the set. Beautiful work, poor communication, decent prices.

Well, nine months later, I hope you're right.
9 months….Oof. Me too. For your sake and everyone else’s sake that ordered from OT.

Has anyone heard back from him at all yet? I tried a few times, but no answer. I'm not sure what Paypal's policy is on something like this, since it was never fulfilled. I'd hate to report someone who does great work, but the straight-up ignoring and lack of any updates is pretty infuriating.

So the “new characters mostly” wasn’t ROTK? Gandalf the White and Helms Deep Legolas seem like they’d fit into the “mostly” if you’re not referencing ROTK and Helms Deep Aragon isn’t in the works.
One of the new characters is ROTK. They don't even appear in FOTR.

The only re-do we have planned is Two Towers.

I love and hate these teases, as I love and hate gollum... who hates and loves the ring, as he hates and loves himself.

So..."don't even appear in FOTR" like not in the armor that they wear in ROTK, but still stabs Frodo with a Morgul blade on Weathertop, or "don't appear in FOTR" in any form?

Either Faramir or Eowyn. The redo is probably Gandalf the white, but I’d love Helm’s Deep Legolas.

i agree, Gandalf the White makes sense. As far as an ROTK character, I REALLY hope it's a Gondorian Soldier army builder! If not, then Faramir or Eowyn would be amazing this early in the line. But the Gondorian armor is my favorite movie armor ever and the ToyBiz figure was not great... and also at the end of the life of the line, so more rare. so, I'd buy several for sure. I know I'm not alone in that.
