Welcome back after St. Paddy's day. Many Irish are still recovering from the celebrations. This month was a single figure month as as usual we have been inundated with marvellous ideas from the club members. I wish to thank all who participated in the suggestions, whether it was submitting or commenting on the submissions. Positive Debate is always welcome. Anyway back to the suggestions, Chris has selected 11 of them for this round, and they cover nearly every race, and even a squirrel. So read through the list carefully and decide what your ideal suggestion is for this chilly/rainy/sunny/warm month. This vote ends on the 25th of March. Have a great Easter Holidays.
Well i am always for the bad guys and i am missing more nazgúl (recognizable different, that is). but i also wish to get saruman as sharky ... finally... after many many suggestions. i still think its worth it.
so, i am waiting with my voting, until i can see which of these will get the most support and then make it count. so, allies of the dark one, vote and show me where your gloomy heat lies and i will follow...
Although I really think that this marvellous squirrel would be a great pride in every serious collector´s treasure I voted for the best 1/3 of my last suggestion. But maybe it would be better for an M-series-release or a boxed set because of the tremendous prices . . .
Bill the Troll, a bit of bad-mannered, uncouthness wouldn't go amiss ;D, and yes someone could suggest the other two in coming months. Bill could even be stuffing a Black squirrel into his mouth - two suggestions in one
to me it is time for the one responsible for Gondors beginning of decline: Castamir the usurper!
It was him who led the realm into civil war, a thing which is one theme in Tolkiens writings, that fighting of Good and Evil is tragic, as even the greatest like the Elves fell into madness of fighting each other. It was Castamir, who brought the corsairs into existence...
As for the Orc: give us a regular M- series boxed set of Orc heroes! Celebrian, Thorongil, Sharkey: next time!! (especially Thorongil as part of "corsair-history" AND Celebrian another Elven female apart from Galadriel!!!!!!) and the 3 Trolls: well another new M-series boxed set, giving us something new: not a monster set (one dragon, oliphaunt and so on) not a 9/10 heroes set but a set of 3 Trolls (maybe with campfire or a vignette base??)
Without goblins, trolls, giant spiders and dragons, you might as well take the "Middle" out of Middle Earth. Humans are already plentiful. Let's bring forth the monsters! I'm all for a box set of infamous orcs, or a trio of trolls; however, since we can only vote for a single figure this time, let's make it a nice orc captain or even Bill the troll. On second thought, just vote for GRISHNAKH! How can Mithril have an Ugluk without a Grishnakh? That's like having Gandalf without Saruman! Donnie without Marie! Makes no sense! I know you orc supporters are out there. Don't let some pasty-face elf or rebel sailor sway you! Come out of your holes and cast your vote! Now, prepare for the 2nd round! Vote Mordor! Vote for GRISHNAKH!
