Lord of the Rings Mystery Minis

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

It's not just you. Between the hair and the body style, it doesn't really seem at all like the Aragorn or Stryder look.

Need the witch king, freaking the freak out about it.

YOU'VE NEVER BOUGHT A FULL CASE BEFORE??? Now I'm dead.

And this set is killer. I can't believe Funko finally got some pretty full rights for LOTR. I can't.

Christopher, the son of Tolkien, resigned as executor of the Tolkien Estate last month and has always fought against products related to his fathers books in most instances. Supposedly his resignation possibly opens the doors to more products, which we may be seeing here with Funko.

I’m thrilled about it. The last time LOTR had a major product line was the old ToyBiz figures that came out during the movie years or maybe the WETA statue line. I’m hoping someone picks up an action figure license, like NECA or an import, like Bandai.

But I’ll also be thrilled at a Pop/MM line.

Yeah, I think I had some of the old Toybiz figures too. Also the mines of moria lego set and one of the hobbit lego sets. I wouldn't mind seeing Neca either and I will definitely get the mini line.

I was really looking forward to buying a case of these, but with those ratios? No monies from me, Funko.
I bought a Mystery Mini and thought it was cool. Now I have shelves covered in Funko vinyl products. What Happened?

Hot Topic Just announced ratios last night for their exclusives. Witch King is a 1/36 and Eowyn and Lurtz are both 1/72. This set is extraordinary, but it's going to be brutal to try to complete

Oh boy, those odds. Does that mean the Wringwraith, Arwen, and Sauron will be 1/36 and 1/72 in the regular cases? If so, that probably means the B&N figures are 1/36 Galadriel, 1/12 gold Gimli, and 1/6 ring Frodo, with Wringwraith, Arwen, and Sauron still being 1/36 or 1/72.

Man these are awesome. Brings me back to my childhood.

But boo at the odds, the 1/72 exclusives are such a pain to get. Most near me HT only stock 1-2 cases the lifetime of the mini, so even if I go to 3 HT and bought everything still a chance not to get it. To ebay I go I guess.

1/6 Mystery Minis are a plague.

Possibly even more of a plague than 1/72 exclusives.

There's a fine line between "fun chase" and "I'm never going to get this, so why bother?".
