Fellowship: The fellowship looks good and much better than the earlier poster. The use of the highlander sword works well for me. Boromir looks much better now. His shield and cloak really make him stand out. Too bad LEGOlas can't have a quiver or a cape. The hobbits are perfect. Gimli's axe is ginormous! (easily fixed) His helm is incredible. The lack of a staff for Gandalf is nutty. A bar for a staff? Atleast his torso is printed. The beard looks like it may have some hair around the sides? I hope so (because) without some hair in the back it will not look like him. He is the most important character across all 5 movies and he only gets a new beard? I cannot express how disappointing the Gandalf fig is to me. Please make a staff mold for him.
Overall things are looking pretty good.
I agree completely. Gandelf wouldn't be Gandelf without his long flowing hair. "Nutty" is a good word to describe the staff, but I think that we should wait and see if they are really going through with a bar piece, as I said in a previous post. When I first saw the (leaked) images of the sets, I was not happy with them, but once someone informed me that the sets usually turn out different from the first beta version, I'm willing to give the them a second chance (though I'm still upset that my two favorite themes are no more).
