New ‘LOTR’ Figures from Funko!

Have you heard the news? Funko announced that they’ll be releasing a new wave of The Lord of the Rings Pop! figures along with Mystery Minis! For years it seemed like we would never be getting anything else LOTR-related from Funko and now we’re already on the second wave of Pops! (unless you count the lone Sauron as wave 1).

Let’s talk about the Mystery Minis since they’re going to be released first. The LOTR set looks like it includes: all the members of the Fellowship, Sauron, Galadriel, Arwen, Saruman, Gollum and a Ringwraith.

Barnes & Noble and Hot Topic will also have their own set of exclusives. B&N will be selling a “glowing” Galadriel (which looks not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the dawn), “invisible” Frodo and a golden Gimli–I’m not sure why Gimli is golden, is it because of the giant gold dwarven statue that momentarily took down smaug in The Desolation of Smaug?

You can find the Witch-king of Angmar, Lurtz and Eowyn at Hot Topic. So if my calculations are correct, there will be a total of 21 Mystery Minis to collect, anyone going to try and get them all? My goal is to find the entire Fellowship! The Minis should be released in January.

Time for the Pops! We’ll be getting 9 new ones including Merry (holding a pint!), Pippin, Lurtz, Gollum (+ chase), Aragorn, and Treebeard along with two exclusives. Barnes & Noble will be selling an invisible Gollum (to match the invisible Frodo!) and Toys ‘R’ Us will have Aragorn in his kingly garb. I’m surprised they released a Lurtz without a Boromir, hopefully we’ll get the other Fellowship members in another wave!

These Pops! will be released in February.

Imagine how perfect the Merry and Pippin Mystery Minis will look next to the oversized Treebeard Pop!

Which figures are you hoping to collect?
