I‘m not a fan of 1/4th either. Even having some statues in that scale, I feel they could have been done the same in a smaller scale. Unless we’re talking about Prime 1’s statues. They’re even bigger at 1/3 but packing so much detail that they justify it. (Comes with the appropriate price tag too)

1/4 figures are even worse as there’s usually very little detail increase compared to the price hike or space needed. Just look at the new 1/4 Joker which even manages to take many steps backwards.

Of course I’d be fine with figures that are larger due to scale, like Hulk, Thanks or a potential Sauron, etc

When asmus showed that work in progress table azog looked like a statue to me....this 1/4 statue with “limited articulation” thing asmus is trying is strange. 1/6 with limited articulation would have made some sense since at least it would fit with the rest of the collection..oh well, easy pass

Yeah honestly I’m just glad I’m saving money somewhere. Asmus especially has been raping my wallet lately lol, I haven’t even bought that many HT’s recently.

I also saw that Asmus has rereleased the Mouth of Sauron as a slim version on bbts. $145 for the PO.

No steed this time, and comes with a mithril shirt. I wasn’t even collecting when the first one came out so I’ll definitely be picking it up.

I just hope this means they’ll do a 2.0 of the witch king and nazghul (with steed in his case)

The mouth of Sauron is one of my most prized figures! I have the mithril shirt still from the first Frodo release I believe. I don’t display mos holding the shirt though. Asmus have said they plan to redo the Nazgûl and witch king, so yeah I’ll take an updated witch king for sure! The only Nazgûl I have are the aci versions (which I really like) but I’ll take more

If you got the original with the horse, I’d never display him holding the shirt either. Such a menacing look. I wish they would 2 honestly, and give us the choice of a ‘deluxe’ MOS with the horse.

It’s too bad, it was still available when I first started collecting, but the rest of asmus output wasn’t up to snuff so I just held off on the LotR line completely.

That’s sweet if they’re gonna redo the nazgul/WK. Fingers crossed they really improve the bodies this go around.

Then we just need the big dog himself, Sauron.

(As an aside MOS makes me keep thinking of ‘Man of Steel’)

Yeah buddy, he sits upon his steed gripping the reins looking like a total bad ass! One of the most impressive pieces! I highly recommend him! MOS :ROTFLMAO: yeah every time I write that I think man of steel also.... Sauron is definitely my most anticipated figure that hasn’t been announced. I thought about getting the weta fellbeast bust and putting WK on it as a display

Yeah it's such a good design. I'm jelly, I gotta admit :LOL:

And oh my lord, putting the WK on top of that bust would be amazing! If you got the funds and the space, you should definitely do it! (whenever the new WK comes out anyway)

That'd be such a great display

Asmus just teased that they're working on what looks to be an armored Elrond as well as the Witch King in wraith form up on Weathertop:

2412

2413

Definitely in for that Elrond over the robes version, and if that wraith WK turns out good... yup. Asmus finally hitting their stride here

Still not decided if I’m getting Elrond and Galadriel. Would feel weird not having them, but not sure I have to have them.

He looks awesome! Gonna pass though. I need his normal form before anything else.

Yeah I need the normal one as well, hopefully they put it out soon. I'm knocking Theoden off for this guy (plus his whole hair seam snafu didn't help)

Yep, Theoden was an easy pass. Still not sure if I’m getting Elrond. If he were in his robes, it would be a pass. I’ll probably end up getting Galadriel, if she isn’t terrible.

Elrond up in the house









Exclusive flag for ordering direct from their store:



I think it's a decent sculpt of Hugo Weaving, but it's somehow missing the 'elfiness,' for lack of a better word.

I don't remember his armor being so colorful since the opening to FotR was so desaturated, but looking up production pics it's completely accurate. Either way, they pretty much confirmed a robed version so I'm going to see how that turns out first before pulling the trigger on either, as that is my preferred look for him.

While going through their facebook I also noticed them post this along with a Happy Bday to Viggo in Oct:



:love::love::love:

Hell yes, been waiting a looooong time for a new version of Aragorn. Both the older ones looked too derpy for me to ever buy, and with the way they've stepped up their game lately, it seems like I'll finally have an Aragorn!

I like the second Aragorn. I don’t think I’ll get the new one. I just need a Gollum and a new Legolas headsculpt.

I’m gonna pass on Elrond. Possibly even the robed version as well. He’s really only in the films very briefly, in relation to even his daughter.

Galadriel may be too tempting though. Plus, I think Cate is gorgeous.
