    Just broke down and purchased a retro "Red Box" Twilight Frodo - this will likely be the most valuable LOTR action figure.

    OOOOOHHHHHHHHHH, I stand corrected! BTW I just picked up the new ROTO Samwise figure, looks good; TRU had a Gandalf the White (ROTO) but he had two left hands - go figure! (No pun intended!)

    Congrats on the Retro Twilight Frodo. I've been meaning to pick one up myself but I've got an insane amount of figures coming in the mail. Since my last post, I've been making deals and have a huge chunk of the Retro collection coming.

    Heres what I have coming:

    FOTR Elrond (already came)
    FOTR Gimli (already came)
    FOTR Gandalf the Gray (already came)
    FOTR Legolas (already came)

    FOTR Frodo/Sam Boat Two Pack (already came)
    FOTR Strider (shipping)
    FOTR Aragorn (shipping)
    FOTR Orc Warrior (shipping)
    FOTR Traveling Bilbo (shipping)
    FOTR Merry/Pippen/Moria Orc Three Pack (shipping)

    I hope I didn't miss any. My goal is to collect the entire Retro line. I still got expensive ones to collect such as Twilight Frodo, Boromir, Elven Archer/Berserker Two Pack, Boromir/Lurtz Two Pack, and Australian Exclusive Helms Deep Gimli. I'm waiting for all these to come in before pursuing those.

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to give you all an update on my Retro Toybiz collection. A few of those pending items in my last list didn't go through so I'll post my new buys.

    FOTR Newborn Lurtz (pending)
    FOTR Orc Overseer (pending)
    FOTR Boromir/Lurtz Two Pack (shipping)
    FOTR Cave Troll Green Box (shipping)

    TTT Elven Archer/Berserker (shipping)
    TTT Prologue Elven Warrior (shipping)
    TTT Traveling Bilbo Red Box (shipping)
    TTT Sam in Mordor (pending)
    TTT Aragorn Red Box (pending)
    TTT King Theoden (pending)

    RETRO ROTK Haradrim Archer/UK Exclusive (shipping)
    ROTK Battle Troll (shipping)

    Supposing all those pendings turn to shippings, heres what I'm still missing from the FOTR and TTT line.

    Fellowship line complete
    Missing:
    TTT Frodo with Light Up Sting
    TTT Smeagol with Phrases
    TTT Boromir
    TTT Helms Deep Gimli
    TTT Moria Orc
    TTT Ugluk

    I may have to wait a week or two, to start to wrap up the Retro lines because I am buying the United Cutlery Prologue Elven Warrior Helm on the first. :)

    So what does everyone think of the new TTT and ROTK wave 4, i think the Citibel Guard is the best and probably Denethor 2nd. cant wait till these hit although id like to get the rest of the other LOTR Trilogy figures first, ive seen some but most are hard to find so ill wait and see what i get for Christmas before i go though eBay or what ever.

    Im only missing from series 1-3:

    Fellowship:
    Twilight Frodo
    Legolas (seen but couldnt get)
    Lurtz

    Two Towers:
    -- just Wave 4

    ROTK:
    Legolas (seen but couldnt get)
    Coronation Arwen

    Just picked up the FOTR wave IV: Gandalf the Grey, Legolas, Boromir (SP), Isildur (I have two if anyone wants to trade), Peter Jackson, Bilbo transfixed.

    I personally like the Isildur the best!

    I haven't posted in a while, no one seemed to have much interest in this line! But as of late I have all of the new FOTR, TTT, ROTK lines including PJ and Bilbo - my favs out of all of them are the Isengard Orc Overseer and the Shagrat, Gorbag is cool too! Good figs, the Gandalf is an improvement as well!

    I too haven't posted in a while. I now have almost all the Trilogy Series 4 that I was interested in. I think my favorites are the Orc Captain and Fountain Guard. Now I'm just missing PJ. Congrats LOTR Fan on finding him.

    As far as my Retro collection, it is all but complete save for 3 figures. ROTK Crossbow Uruk-Hai, ROTK Helms Deep Aragorn, and ROTK Ceremonial Eomer. I'm not in a big rush to get these yet. I must find PJ first. :)

    Oh, BTW Merry Christmas everyone.
