    EDIT: I couldn't decide if I should put this in the LOTR collectibles section, or here. Feel free to move it :))

    I have scrapped my plans to buy the one ring stirling editiom (for now, anyway.).

    because the sideshow figures are cheaper, and limited, and taking into account the fact that I have almost none, and because the "evil" side of the story has not been represented in my collection, I am going to but a Orc bust. (If that wasn't a run-on sentence, i don't know what is :p)
    I am choosing between Grishnakh and a "Cleaved Orc Bust".

    So, which should I buy?

    Did you consider a bigger statue? Ringwraith on Steeds are considerably cheaper right now (they can be had for $200 or so on ebay, when previously they courted $500.) Its a wonderful statue.

    Also the Morgul Lord is a great statue as well but that one isn't going anywhere as quickly as the RW.

    Go with Grishnakh. He is by far the more superior and memorable. ;)

    I am also considering getting the ringwraith bust. the problem is, it's backordered.

    Get the Ringwraith bust...its an awesome piece. :cool:

    Also, according to people I've spoken with, the Grishnakh bust looks a lot more better in person...so go with it.

    I have the RW bust and can personally speak of its quality - it is very large compared to other busts!!!! It is backordered on SW's website, buy it from eBay, you can find it for about $55, that is where I got mine. I have no regrets!

    Definently get the Ringwraith, or if you can't, i'd go with Grishnakh over the cleaved-orc. Just my opinion though.
