Does anyone know about the LOTR figures released by Britain? I DO NOT mean any figures released in tha nation of Great Britain but am referring to the figures produced by the toy soldier company named Britains. They are known for very high quality toy soldiers. I would like to know several things if possible.
- variety of figures produced
- materials used
- size
- original price

if you have any of this info, it would be most appreciated if you would post here. Thanks.

I must say, that I think it is a shame Tolkien was ever in a situation where he had to sell the movie rights to any of his works. I'm not sure that movies should ever have been made, and I don't think he wanted that either. I would be lying if I said that I did not enjoy Peter Jackson's films, but I was perfectly happy with the books by themselves. This said, I would prefer that the first and second ages of middle earth be left alone. These stories (Silmarillion, etc.) are the 'legends' and traditions that are meant to color and enrich The Lord of the Rings, as if they have been passed down through the ages. I say, leave them to the imagination.

It is interesting Nasmith added that, though it is a wonderful little sketch. Beleg meets Gollum; sounds like a bad piece of fanfic!

I bet that will reach £500 at least before the 9 days are up.

That auction is nuts! Any guesses for how high that will go? I like the Nasmith drawing a lot. I'm not sure if it belongs in this book, but I would not complain!

I am impressed with the latest copy on Ebay from the family in front of me in the queue at Waterstones, though disappointed that they did not ask for my autograph (they seem to have everybody else who was there)

8 times signed Children of Hurin on Ebay

They have also included the bill for what they bought, 4 x Trade, 5 x Deluxe. I hope they would keep at least one copy of each, so these are probably the last for sale from them.

They could however, have bought five Trade copies so I don't know why they only got four.
