"I had been quite strict on what gets included and what doesn't this month and for that reason have left out the Frodo and Gollum vignette, the seated Gondorian statue ( he has a throne) and the bodyguard of the Mouth of Sauron, who I assume was mounted". by Chris Tubb. I think all our fans will be satisfied at the list of 13 options to vote for. Remember one vote per member for this round of voting. You can add your personal comment why you voted for that option as well. Vote ends October 26th at 16.00 GMT. Vote for your favourite. On the 26th I will start a second vote on the 3 or 4 most popular suggestions. This will allow you to vote again to decide on the final winner. Remember you can always resubmit an idea another month to try again.
I'll throw my lot behind Lossie this time, I've tried to support regular combatants and this will be no exception (I would prefer it more as a vignette, but let's see, a compromise is no problem), so "Go Lossie go".
I also vote for the Lossoth Hunter, one of the last Races of Men originally mentioned in the Lord of the Rings by Professor Tolkien not yet produced by Mithril. You all know how Chris might fashion him: furs, snowshoes, weapons, polar bear tooth necklace, etc . . . However Chris sees fit.
On another note, I see sixteen votes cast and only two comments in support of an idea. Perhaps some are waiting to voice support for their votes?
Unsurprisingly I support Arwen. Scenes from the "daily life" of elves are always welcome here (there are very few of Chris Tubbs vignette left, so for those who were contemplating about getting this, do it fast)
Those among us who are not keen on another representation of Arwen can always use it as a stand-in for another famous elven princess who met her mortal love while dancing through the wilderness (no names, please)...
I voted Thranduil... As I think that it could both be used for the battle of the five armies AND the battle of Mirkwood (as he was present and the mirkwood series already exists) AND why not it could pose as another elf lord in armor (if you see what I mean...)
"Elves seldom give unguarded advice, for advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise, and all courses may run ill."(Gildor Inglorion, LOTR1)
What a list of great suggestions! I think, we should stop voting for the next year and instead get all of these - one by one ;-) But my favourite is the Lossoth hunter and I will suggest and vote for him each month until I'll get him! Sincerely, Alex
I like that Barliman ready to defent idea, but it whould fit better as a vignette with at least Gandalf, + maybe Frodo and Sam.
Castamir is great, but should be released together with Eldacar, the rightful King, the latter missing in our collections also...
Arwen will come, Roac will come...
The Lossoth Hunter has a good chance this time I think, but what about as a vignette with sled?
Thranduil fighting is fantastic too, but my first round vote goes to Lady Celebrian, my own suggestion.
If she doesn't make it, I will suggest her Rescue as a Vignette next month! Imagine: we could have in one release Celebrian, wife of Elrond, rescued by her twin sons in ranger garb ), fighting at least one stinking orc!
Listen - How the wind howls! - It howls with the voices of wolves!!!
