I've had these about a week now. I like Gimli, but Legolas is such a letdown for me. His leg articulation is pretty much useless. Even if it weren't, his tunic skirt is so incredibly stiff you could barely move his legs forward anyway. Then they switched his hands, so his grip for the bow is his right hand & the arrow grip is the left. It's just really disappointing. He looks fine & he can certainly stand there in a display, but he's an action oriented character, he deserved better. I hope Aragorn fares better.

Legolas looks good, but he is poorly designed. He can barely hold his bow in more than 1 position. The choice not to include his swords is absolutely insane, and his legs might as well be static.

Am I wrong or does Aragorn come with his sword?

Legolas cannot even turn his left to the right, his hair is blocked by the quiver straps, so perhaps that is a prototype?

Two swords.

It's Legolas that the people want blades for.

He can turn his head. You just have to make him look down to get his hair to clear the quiver.

I got my figures, they look great....except the paint job on Legolas. His neck is all red and his face is all splotchy. Looks like he has a rash going on. The sculpt is fantastic though. The hip design was an interesting choice, but I didn't have any issues articulating it because I didn't assume it was a T hip joint.

I freaked out for a minute. I went to BBTS and the set was Sold Out. But then I went and checked EE, and luckily they still had it. So I got one :)

I purchased Gimli and love it. He is well articulated and very detailed. A little taller than I expected, but super fun. I have always loved that character and the Dwarves from LOTR and the Hobbit books. I have a feeling this will be the only Dwarf we will get, but I sure would love for them to make more.

The Gollum and Frodo two-pack..... What the hell is that "boat?" I've watched all six movies within the last six months, so they are relatively fresh to my mind. I don't recall ever seeing a "boat" that looks like that.

That's a nice-looking set! I'm a sucker for "invisible" variants on figures, so consider it ordered! MSWord, is there any plans for a swappable head on either that or the mainline Gollum in order to make him Smeagol?

Regarding the boat, I'm not sure where it shows up in the LOTR movies, but I know he pushes himself across the water in it in An Unexpected Journey.
