    Great to hear! Some of their prices are typical LCS prices, while some are ridiculous; like their $1k Delorean. Though they still had these two for a decent overall price.

    When I bought mine, they immediately went to sold out status. Either because they were waiting on more, or had to disable that 15% off coupon

    Say no to drugs. Because if they are talking to you, you've probably had enough.

    I know this isn't the right place to post this, but I just wanted to share a couple of pics of my custom Frodo figure, that I have just finished. I really wanted to love the Asmus Frodo, but whilst the clothing & accessories are undoubtedly superior to this old Dragon in Dreams ensemble, I could never see past Asmus's headsculpt. And he has a metal Sting, too...

    Yeah, got em for $246 shipped. Given the situation, I'm happy with that.

    Finally managed to get my hands on this set. Overall I'm pretty pleased with it, even if the sculpts are not exceptional.
    Pros:
    I like this set more than Merry and Pip....better body proportions (thanks to the sculpted necks that make the heads sit higher and slightly bigger heads), lots of accessories, great tailoring. Great stuff on the ring and ringed hands, nice weapons (Sting in particular).
    Cons:
    Why on earth Frodo comes with his travel cloak while Sam don't? Why there's the light of Earendil but no elvish rope? Why just Sam's Barrow-blade and not Frodo's? These two Hobbits are better than Merry and Pip but I don't like the inconsistency they generate: now M&P are smaller (and even if in the movie they're the same height it should be the complete opposite), with (worse) smaller heads and less hairy feet.
    Lastly Sam's buttons are a nightmare (I already reglued back two of them) and I understand why they included some spares.

    Here's a quick pic with some pieces of wood I'll use as travel sticks. Sam's slightly padded as the fatsuit wasn't absolutely enough.

    Great pics!

    Aren't all these bodies the same?

    Did Sam actually have those extensions on his pants like that? Never noticed.

    Cant' answer completely (I only fully undressed Merry) but the neck is different. Merry and Pip have a torso with sculpted neck, while Sam anf Frodo's necks are one with the head.

    Technically yes... The seam is there but it's almost unnoticeable at normal viewing distance (enlarge the pic...is hi-res):

    So, Asmus, will this get a reissue?
    Still confused why you choose to do the most crucial LOTR characters in the smallest possible edition size?!

    Why make a reissue od Saruman and not these two?!

    Apparently they are making an UPGRADED version.
