Hey Beren (and whomever else wants to chime in),

you mention still being able to get the Deluxe 50th Anniversary Lord of the Rings book from Amazon.co.uk in your Children of Hurin article on TolkienLibrary.com. (Is that enough links for one sentence, you think?)

On Wayne and Christina's website, they say "While working on the Companion and Guide we edited the 50th anniversary edition of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, with the approval of Christopher Tolkien, to ensure the most accurate version to date. This was published in 2004. A new printing, with further corrections and a new, much enlarged index, appeared in 2005." (The emphasis is theirs).

I'm assuming the currently available printings from Amazon are the revised edition. Has anyone bought both, and can compare the copyright statements? Is the 2005 restart with a new numberline and edition statement, or is it a second (or further) printing on the number line and some other edition modification statement?

Just curious. I only have printings of the 2004 edition, myself.

That's the book - all text (no pictures). There is also Treasures From the Misty Mountains by James Gillam that has pictures (between pages 127 and 143, but not all Bakshi related materials). It is nowhere near complete in any sense, and sometimes inaccurate, but some of its pictures of rarities are nice for reference.

Thanks for stopping by lapo! Hopefully we can all work on filling out the Guide section on these materials together. Any images and descriptions you can give me I will add to the guide ASAP, if you don't feel like trying it yourself.

I agree with you Dior, I have one of the Guides on the bedside table, and I find myself seriously wanting to have a stack of other books there for cross reference.

Don't think I can get time off work, though. We will be travelling to China soon (who knows, any time in the next few months, as soon as a few weeks...) to bring home our new daughter.

Does this mean you want me to generate calendars out of thin air for you? I thought you already had them all...

I am making progress on the New Line Cinema calendar data dump I was blessed with.

Not really a collectible (at least not yet, who knows, maybe people will be buying and selling characters and items from the game somewhere down the line, or the boxed software may be many years from now) but I just got invited to participate in the remainder of the beta test for the next few months.

I had a chance to play it for a few hours last month, and it was really buggy but still playable, as expected for a beta. I had fun, but wasn't totally blown away (yet).

How many others out there are in to the massive multiplayer games? This will be my first, I'm more into seeing what they have done with the license than staying up till four AM every night hunting orcs. (I do have a soft spot for good first person immersive games, though.)
