In a short discussion on a famous Facebook page (for Mithril Fans ), some of us suggest to wish a "Scouring the Shire!" range).
For me, who is not a specialist, it seems that the "M" series are definitively closed, but MS and MZ are always produced ( Am I right ? )
So, here are some ideas:
-Sharkey (and Wormtongue ) in the Shire
-The four Hobbits mounted on Ponies and arriving in the Shire
-Pippin blowing Horn
-Lotho as "The Boss"
-Shiriffs, Guards, "ruffians" ,
- Thain Paladin II and all the Hobbits in revolt, and in the Battle of Bywater
-of course, some Hobbits archers for killing Sharkey !
I know I'm a dreamer but I love so much the Hobbits !
You may find that such a suggestion had been made many moons ago (possibly ), but it would be a great Mithril Range to have I agree.
You may need to ask Michael O'Brien regarding the status of the 'old' M Range, or its successor (if there is one). Mithril have redesigned The Hobbit box set (not released yet) so hopefully may revisit producing 'Ranges' albeit in the new MZ style
