"Is merchandise collection an exuberant outgrowth of your love for Tolkien? Or are we just suckers for a conga-line of corporate bloodsuckers out to inflate their profits...?"

I would suggest that if your "love for Tolkien" manifests itself in the desire to collect movie memorabilia; you probably fit the description being offered.

Tolkien wrote books; what does that have to do with action figures, costume jewelry or polystone (whatever that is) sculptures?
