Hello collector fellows! I think it's time for a female figure once more, for there are much Men released yet.
My suggestion for this month whould be Eowyn and Faramir at the houses of healing again. I see them as a couple like the one from the Turin series, Morwen and Nienor: Two figures close to each other on one base. With entangled hairs and flowing cloaks. It whould be a great fellowship figure when done by Chris.
Cheers and happy voting!
Listen - How the wind howls! - It howls with the voices of wolves!!!
Has anyone suggested Dernhelm with Merry, charging into battle, or even trotting along on her horse?
Re the beasts of Middle Earth, I would welcome that in a normal range - the Kine of Araw (I suggested it with Vorondil [it didn't do too well] previously, the beast that fits the 'bill' in my opinion would be the Aurloch - I think that's how you spell it - this beast actually exists today and I've seen one in a UK zoo. They are HUGE!
Looking back on some of the comments, perhaps it is time to give some of our roleplayers a chance with more action poses although the average price of these exclusives would put large numbers out of the reach of most, that is why personally I prefer the more unique 'one-off' type suggestions that wouldn't make too much commercial sense for Mithril to produce in large numbers.
Anyhow, if no one has suggested it and I'm not 'stealing' somebody's idea, perhaps Dernhelm and Merry might make a good figure cast as one peice to keep it a 'single'.
Isn't this Isildur represention already made actually? both in the LR range and in a former MS vignette (with Elrond and Othar) or even in 54mm christmas figurines (though 54mm is different) I like the "beasts series idea" that's quite original! I also like the Brand idea actually
Can anyone confirm this? The only figure I remember like this is Celebrimbor in MS225.
I just saw MS226. Is he holding up the ring? I thought he was using his hand to shade his eyes. Well, that's what I get for not looking closer.
Here is a suggestion for a figure that is mentioned in the works of JRRT, but has never been produced by Mithril: A Lossoth Hunter!
He would be Human, a "Snowman of Forochel," and dwell upon the shores of the Ice Bay of Forochel. He would be bearded, and cloaked in furs, with seal-hide boots, and a cap of tough hide, perhaps with walrus tusks protruding from the sides. A necklace of polar bear teeth would be draped around his neck on the outside of the furs, to ward off evil spirits. A long knife would be his weapon in hand, with a club in his multi-pouched belt.
According to a note in Bilbo's Red Book of Westmarch they were: "A strange, unfriendly people, remnant of the Forodwaith . . . The Lossoth housed in the snow, and it is said that they can run on the ice with bones on their feet, and have carts without wheels."
This figure would represent those Humans who resided in the northernmost climes of Middle-earth, who are not depicted by Mithril so far, and his primary enemy might well be the legendary "Snow-Troll!"
