  1. I just wish they’d stop releasing the darn things. I already have all of the figurines on my ‘wish list’ but adding more isn’t helping me to catch up 🙂

  2. We just updated with some shots – That Azog is pretty awesome!

  3. Okay, okay, I’m saving up already 🙂

    I’m in Bangkok, Thailand so these things are even more expensive here. Will have to see if my local shop has this as it’s very cool. Guess I won’t be eating much this month, LOL.

  4. Don’t worry Beorn,Yazneg,King Thranduil and Smaug in 3/34 are must haves for this whole entire collection!

  5. Ya mean the 6′ one or 3/34 one JasonM?

  6. Yeah fair enough but Bridge Direct are doing their best to distribute all of their toys to the whole of Europe and other countries outside of it!

  7. The 6″. Granted he’s a pretty cool looking character to work with, but he came across into the toy line pretty great.

  8. Just curious, do you shop at a chain like Toys R Us or specialty stores like a local comic shop? I’m guessing specialty store; I find most of the good stuff is either online or in comic shops these days. My local TRU has nothing I’m into.

  9. Jason, we have Toys R Us in Bangkok but they’re garbage and expensive so I don’t shop there.

    I tend to look at either comic book stores (they’re EVERYWHERE in Thailand as Thais, like most Asians, love comic books) or at specialty stores. We have a couple of excellent ones in Bangkok so they’re usually my first stop. We also have over 150 shopping malls in Bangkok, (and I’m talking massive world-class things selling everything you could ever want) so I can sometimes find things at random shops or stalls there. Throw in the thousands of bootleg game and film DVD stores that also sometimes sell models, and I can usually get what I want.

    If I can’t get what I want there, then I will occasionally order from the US and have it shipped to my parents. Then they bring it with them when I meet them in Europe for a vacation — see what some of us go through to get our favorite film and game-related toys 🙂

  10. Yep i agree but i only collect the 3/34 figures ya know i can’t be bothered with the others!

  11. Oh well where are you from then JasonM?

  12. New York, which you’d think would be great for a collector, but I still have to either go to my local comic shop or order pretty much everything I want.

  13. Oh right well yeah that is true as there are numerous toy stores there from what i heard about. But Comic-shops are probably not the best place to go unless they sell toys there as well?

  14. I know and understand as nowadays distribution is hard and elusive to deal with, but i does depend what region you’re in at the end of the day.Sorry to hear this as well
