Any idea when these hit retail in Australia?

I still look at my LOTR figures and think, Man, these are great!

I think they were scheduled for an October 1 release in the US, but some retailers there jumped the gun.

I'm sure we'll get these soonish, given it's a movie tie-in line. Probably be littered with the smaller figures though. >_<

6 inch for me or nothing - I flat out refuse to invest in a new scale for these.

Yeah, unfortunately there are more of the smaller figures than there are 6 ones. Normally Im not interested in the smaller figures, but there are a couple of nice little monsters in the line that would suit my regular figures, at least as minions. There is a pretty nifty goblin as well as a warg. The warg could easily pass off as a wolf.

Big W has the smaller 2 packs and single figures. They cost 12 bucks something for the singles. I bought a goblin.
No sign of the 6" figures or the warg pack.

TRU Cannington had, I shit you not, 16 invisible Bilbo figures (in the smaller scale). Two pegs worth of the same crap.

Now, I'm well aware that TRU continually gets the worst lines in bulk and then gets minimal of the best lines. Whether its a supplier thing or not, this is beyond a joke.

This is like a case of the SAME shitty figure.

They also had the 5 pack of Dwarves and Bilbo for $50. But SIXTEEN freakin' invisible Bilbos? WTF???

Found the 4" figures in Big W. Bought single packed Bilbo & Legolas/Tauriel 2-pack. They are such nice figures!

I've seen the 6" figures at my TRU and Toyworld. Gandalf was the one that seemed scarcest.

So having seen the movie I am alittle resigned to the fact I'll probably have to get some 3.75" figures to get the dwarves and the Goblin King.

Anyone found any news on future releases from The Bridge Direct in this line? As it stands we only have 5 of the 13 dwarves.

Let me know if ur stuck mate. TRU in WA seems pretty well stocked. Also, check out Amazon. Probably works out cheaper from then anyway.
