Got a Lord of the Rings fan on your list this year? Then you might want to see what Sideshow has on tap. They’ve got orcs, trolls, and even a wizard.
One Guide to rule them all
Arguably as prominent as it’s been in a few years, The Lord of the Rings saga has definitely been in the news this past year. Amazon’s Second Age-set series debuted (which we won’t get into), and there are rumblings of something happening at Warner Bros, with perhaps an ‘expanded universe’ of movies coming at some point.
And of course, added to all of that, there’s been a nice stream of collectible items hitting the market. In with that lot, more or less at the fore honestly, is Sideshow’s collection of goodies. The included come from a number of different companies, covering a spread of categories.
Sifting through all of that has been the gift-masters at the company, who’ve come up with a selection of Sideshow’s very best. That’s what’s listed below, and when you scroll down you’ll find 12″ figures, statues, and even a print.
None of what you’re about to see is all that inexpensive, but if you’re looking for something awesome to give to a LotR fan, you’ve found the right list. And as a nice bonus, all of it should be in stock now as well. So you should get it in time for Christmas (but make sure to check before you buy).
Here’s what’s hotter than Mt.Doom, straight from Sideshow:
