    United now has the license to manufacture Full Scale Helmets! The first three confirmed helmets will be Gimli's helmet, King Elendil's helmet from the prologue of "Fellowship of the Ring", and the High Elven war helmet also from the prologue. If those are successful, United has plans to make many others. Possible Helmets we could see are The Uruk-Hai swordsman, Theoden, the Elven archer from 'The Two Towers,' and there are quite a few in 'Return of the King' that they are looking at.

    So what do you think fans? Which ones would you like to see. I have listed some that are going to be made and other that are under consideration. Cast you vote and let them know which ones you would like to see made. Leave your comments and opinions below. If your choice or favorite is not in here let us know which one you would like to see!

    I plan on getting Gimli's, but the one I really want is Éomer's!

    Gimli's is nice, and he is a main character, but Theoden's and Eomer's helms are awesome and I'm sure we will be seeing more of them in ROTK.

    I Want them ALL!!!!!!!!! If you have read some of my other posts you will know that my H/T room is being designed around my collection and I have also designed space for displaying helms with the swords.

    All of those are nice, but why wouldn't they include Eomer's in that list. His was the most remarkable and stood out most in the movies so I would not only think that it would be most in demand but most favorable for marketing...

    Looks like Éomer's Helm is pretty popular. *Hint Hint* UC *Wink Wink* OK, I think you've got the picture. :D

    id love elendils helm, i would also liek them to make a standard gondorian helm, modern, not prologue. from what ive seen in TTT they look pretty good, and they might not cost too much as they seem one-piece.

    What about the Elven warrior helm from the prologue? We've heard nothing about it for ages.

    The Elven Warrior Helmet has been delayed for some reason unknown to us right now. But it has been confirmed that it will be released guess we will just have to wait and see on this one.

    In another post you asked about the limited number amounts on the Helmets too, Here is what Kit Rae said about that way back when they first announced they were awarded A new Contract to produce more than just swords.

    The retail costs for many of these products will be higher than the swords due to the complicated manufacturing methods used, especially the helmets. Most of these will be more or less hand made, in limited production runs of 1500-3000 pieces each

    Now that I think about it actually, ther are still Shards of Narsils available. Hopefully the helms won't sell out so quick.

    my life savings barely come to £500 ( i am only 16 though), but i did get a bonus in money for good GCSE results, so im looking to get a good sword, sadly the entire UC LOTR range is out of the question for me as retailers here in england sell em at rip off prices and the shipping from BBB is too much.

    I got my Witchking from a site in England and had it posted to Northern Ireland to save on postage, (I'm in the Republic) but it still worked out cheaper to get them from BBB. (until I found out about the import duty!)

    What I'd do if I was you is buy one sword (your favourite) and see what you think. If you like it (and you will) you could get a part time job in a shop or some where and start saving like mad and buy another.
    And of course if you have any rich relatives, drop a few hints as to what you want for christmas!

    I have the first three swords from the LOTR collection, dont ask how, and im quite content with them, although id love to have narsil or the ranger sword. but with the money i managed to con out of my dad for my GCSE's im probably going to buy a normal sword, maybe start up a collection, i found a few decent sites that i can get good prices on.

    Well I can tell you the Ranger sword is SWEET. I'd definitely get it next if I was you. ( with the scabbard if possible!)

    The Ranger Sword was the second most popular sword as far a sales went. BUt I think that when UC deicides to release Boromir's Sword they will all be blown out of the water!

    what was the most popular? I'm guessing Hadhafang, from all the times it was out of stock.
