    I'm not sure about whoever desined these new Episode II figures.

    The "gun firing" plastics are too heavy. You can probably get the figures to stand up if you buy the stands, but otherwise forget it.

    Even if you have stands, the weight quickly bends the guns, especially Zam Wessell's long rifle.

    And still no Information Book / CommTech Chip type extra.

    The MouseDroid that comes with the PotJ R4-M9 figure is a bit out of scale too - much tooo big.

    :(

    Zigactly! who needs stands when you keep your figures trapped in plastic (its fantastic) although I dont have any more ceiling space :(

    My figs arrived today. I'm tempted to take Jango out and straighten him so he doesnt look silly-twisted to the left.

    The Clone trooper has an interesting pose...
    Dunno if I like the blaster shots etc.

    I like the teebo figure, lot of detail. the amidala decoy is also nice :)

    I hope you guys are saving your pennies. I just found this on the Usenet Newsgroups ...
    Get all the new sw episode 2 figures.( ALL 31) delivered to your home before April 23rd. Coming directly from hasbro.


    So, 31 figures @ $20 = $620!! OUCH!! :(

    I remember a similar price when I got ALL the first release of Episode I figures from the Warehouse.

    I saw an Elrond FOTR figure today. And a windswept Aragorn and an Orc Warrior.

    Is there a new wave out? Or did I just not notice these first time around?

    Bilbo was the 4th character (on the back of the other boxes, not inb-store) in this wave by the looks.

    Can't find any pix online though. Very strange.

    SFL or Chansplace, whats the URL on the 1st wave packaging?

    From that site; "There is no word from Toy Biz at this time about the lack of the scheduled Bilbo figure in the cases recieved by 411Toys."

    ooooooooh

    Elrond does look nice!

    :D :D :D :D :D

    //happy yet sad camper//

    happy = more LOTR figures

    sad = costs money

    happy = mum put figures on lay by when they come to The Warehouse, as we had a look today and they were no where to be seen. :(

    Here is a post from "The Council of Elrond" discussion forums:

    They have some new Action figures out 2 new double packs of Gimli with a Uruk-Hai and Frodo and Sam with a Lorien Boat. They also have new single figures but I didn't see those in the store but they are Elrond in his Last Alliance gear, Bilbo, a new Aragorn, and a orc

    And here are some pics of figures from "The Two Towers".

    If you are spoiler free - you may not want to view these figures.
