Saw the 3 3/4inch figures today in TRU for the first time, but strangely it was a 3 figure gift pack i've not seen shown online, it had Gandalf, the Red clothed Dwarf and the female Elf.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Guess it was an exclusive set to TRU then?

I'm assuming that too, they wanted £22.99 for it so nothing special about the price. I should of took a picture but didn't think till i had left the store. I have to say the figure look awesome in person, can't wait for them to come out properly.

Anyone bought the Goblin King yet, if so what are your thoughts after opening him?

I have him. He is huge and cool. I like the articulation, but I am worried about how he looks when he sits. I also hate the overall design. I may like him more if he had a throne or something besides thorin

I haven't picked him up yet. I want to, and will at some point.

Kinda surprised that Wal-Mart/Target haven't put any of these out yet? Maybe after Black Friday they'll have a little display? They should -- the latest movie trailer kicks ass!

I have not been able to see the movie yet, which is killing me.

But, I've bought all the figures, except for one of the 2-pks. I haven't seen TRU stock any of this stuff really since December... hope they get some more in?

I do like the Goblin King figure, but I also agree the design of the character is a bit weird. Overall though, very cool and I'm glad they made him.

Today I bought two more of the Grinnah Goblin figure - making my total up to 3 of him. Since there's a lot of Goblins in the movie I figured he kind of serves as an army builder.

I saw the movie on Saturday, with my son and my dad - was a great experience, it's the first time the three of us went to a movie together!

I liked the movie quite a bit (though I thought the Goblin King lair was a bit overdone, and the fight was a bit silly - no way they would have all survived that). But overall, I think I'd give it 3/4 stars. It was very entertaining and I loved almost every aspect of it.

Now I really want them to make more figures! A Necromancer, Sauramon, Elrond, Galadriel, White Orc, the Brown Wizard and his bunny sled, more orcs, the fat dwarf, etc... I'd also like to see a horse or two and the Mountain Trolls!

I'm really glad the two of you enjoyed the film. CHEWIE, it's awesome that you had an inter-generational experience. I went to a movie with my dad and grandfather a few months before he died, and it is a special memory for me. I'm a big fan of Tolkien, second only to Lucas by maybe a hair; or, maybe he's first. Either way, I'm glad to see some love for "The Hobbit"!

Happy these are continuing.

Dr Who and this might make up for the lack of Marvel next year.

These are awesome... and I'm hooked. But somehow, all of my Hobbit figures have ended up mixed in with my son's GI JOEs... :? :lol: :mrgreen:
