Thanks to all who posted. This is most helpful. I will pursue the leads provided here.

Now if I could just find someone who bought the set with LOTR film fever and now is tiring of it.

Oh, and the Tolkien Society has the following listed as currently available:

"W. Britain's Hand Painted Cast Metal Collectable Figures - Accurate depictions of the film characters, ready made, hand painted, approx. 54mm. SOME no longer made, last few. 25% off!! (Prices listed include discount.)

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: Aragorn, Bilbo, Boromir, Galadriel, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Saruman, Orc overseer. Each. £15.50

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: The Hobbits (3); The Orcs (3); (NO longer made, running out fast.) Each. £38.75

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING RANGE: Gandalf and the Balrog diorama. (Last few.) £119.50"

They usually charge retail, and shipping is included in the rate, so these are not quite accurate reflections of the original retail prices.

I did a quick search online and found this site that has about a dozen figures and images that might be useful. I also put a request into Britains for more information if they will give it to me.

I do not know much about this topic, but the ones I have seen were made in 2002 and are tied into the New Line Cinemas movies. They were 1/32 scale. I have seen them for sale on EBay a few times, usually for pretty cheap (i.e. ~$5). There are currently examples of Galadriel, Bilbo, and Saruman on EBay now. One would have to assume that all of the major characters (Gandalf, Frodo, Aragorn, etc.) were made.
