The Witch King with fiery sword and chained mace is a must! But with his sleeves pushed back and up and down wrist hinges!

I don’t think they look stylized at all. Think that’s just an uber-fan being picky.

When will the actual accessories be revealed? Any idea if maybe Lurtz comes with an alternate army-builder head?

I kinda feel like Sam’s wave mate will be Saruman. Faramir would work thematically but Saruman seems like a major villain to balance again Sam’s hero.

Sorry also that people are finding the figures stylized. We are going for photo-realism, but obviously many details are lost at 1/10 scale.
I think these are the best looking figures you've released. I think they're up there with some NECA stuff. Keep up the great work with these and glad to hear Sam is next.

Do Boromir and Lurtz not have accessories?

They haven't been shown yet.

Those photos were just an early look at the figures themselves.

Sorry we can't release the Fellowship all at once. Sam is next, I believe, then Merry and Pippin. A two-pack is not out of the question.

I don't think anyone actually expects that you'd release the Fellowship all at once... Thanks for the info about Sam!! So exciting! And potential for a 2 pack?! also, I'm guessing that the next series must be getting close to being ready to reveal for you to even come here and drop that little Sam nugget.

And stylized? Like movie style? If that's what that means, then yes, your figures are perfectly in the style of the Peter Jackson LOTR trilogy they're based on. I think the figures are excellent and look amazing! The changes to the most recent figures (Boromir's wrist specifically) shows that you're listening to fans and that's awesome.

Third! I think these figures look great and keep looking better. I'm so excited to here Sam is coming next and Merry and Pippin will be soon.

At this point, I'm just really hoping we can circle back & get a Gandalf the White as well.

In terms of the style, I think the only real upgrade they could have is the print tech face likeness. Maybe increase the texture resolution so that it's more noticeable? The sculpts are great and even with the hand-painted details they have decent likenesses. Boromir looks fantastic, with lots of detail in his belts and robes. His face looks great too.

I forgot to show this here, but I made a Bilbo figure using the DST Frodo and Marvel Legends Everett Ross head. i can't take credit for the idea (saw it on Facebook initially) but I just had to do it!ImageImage
