The Hobbit (and LOTR) toys
« on: December 20, 2011, 11:18:20 PM »

So Lego has announced they got the licence to do Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit sets. Pretty cool. (http://www.bricktuts.com/2011/12/lego-lord-of-the-rings-preliminary-pictures-of-summer-2012-sets-revealed/) I may try and pick up the fellowship in minifig form. Not sure if I will get anymore than that since space and budget are ever increasingly an issue, but it's pretty awsome to see these coming.

I also found out that "The Bridge Direct, Inc" got the master toy licence for the Hobbit. No hasbro, no mattel, no toy biz (I guess they're gone). They make justin bieber dolls.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley: I don't really want to get into another action figure line, but I was hopeful someone like hasbro would pick up the licence. I'd love a nice quality 3 3/4 Gandalf figure. I have low expectations on this one though.

The Toy Biz line was fantastic, other than a few instances of paint chipping, mine still look awesome & they've been dogpiled in a big cardboard box for nearly 10 years.

I use to collect the LOTR Toy Biz figures. It was pretty cool stuff. I have gotten rid of them since then. Kinda wish I hadn't though.  :(

The LOTR Lego looks pretty sweet! I wonder if they will eventually come out with a Lego LOTR video game!

my LOTR Toy Biz collection was pretty extensive .... they take up SOO much room to store too. But I LOVE them. The only figure I never was able to purchase was the Mordor Orc Lieutenant .. and that was because the two I found had their bubbles punctured fully with a huge hole in the sides  :(  .. this figure went on to be worth about $80 to collectors and then I never found one again ... I really regret not buying those two damaged ones.. the ONLY figure missing from my LOTR collection ... makes me sad thinking about it some days ..

Glad they are making Hobbit toys ... It'd be cool to see some photos perhaps at Toy Fair in February?

Most likely, every other movie license they've had got a video-game made.

Depending on whether they make a Minas Tirith set and how it looks, I might crack and get that, but otherwise I think I'm going to pass. Not into LOTR as much as I used to be.

Still too early ... they showed LEGO LOTR sets at Toy Fair but that was it. I'd say some stuff MIGHT be shown at SDCC but most likely the NY Toy Fair in the fall..

Loved the LOTR figures growing up. They were some of the most beautifully sculpted figures I have seen next to the Macfarlane's  figures. The only problem I had with them is that you couldn't really play with them since a lot of the weapons (Legolas' knives in particular.) were rather fragile and very easy to lose. I debated about selling them but I didn't have the heart to part with them. Curious to see what the Hobbit figures look like...

Saw the LOTR lego at walmart tonight. Soo tempting to get the sets with the fellowship in them. Just don't have the budget or space. Although, if I bought the sets, kept the minifigs, and sold the rest, that wouldn't take up much space... there's a slippery slope to go down!

Awsome stuff though.

That's exactly what I was thinking.  :cool0037:
