Sorry about the delay in starting this vote. However it seems that there was a draw and the votes were very even, most likely due to the high quality of the suggestions. I chose to include 'Haldir, guardian of Lorien' as this was just one vote behind the rest. You have until the 1st of October so vote today.
This is an open vote so you can see the current status of the vote before you cast yours.
I also feel that it's about time for Haldir to win. Poor chap has been around the houses for more months than I care to think about. Mind you, he is an Elf, so it probably seems the blink of an eye to him.
"A worthy man, but his memory is like a lumber-room: thing wanted always buried."
Don't worry Master Barkeep, I'll vote for Hurin in the second round next month
I really should go re-read the relevant passages in The Fellowship of the Ring, and see if I can offer some insight into what Haldir would look like.
That being said, a "multi-part" model with optional bow arm, bare arm, sword arm and spear would be worth buying and worth paying another 5 euro for. Optional heads would be nice, but hardly necessary - there'd probably be issues with hair and so on. Though perhaps all heads could be hooded to go alongside the Lorien Archer and the Lorien Guardian-Guide.
So much for the Orcs. Well, let's see now... a black-hearted and rotten tree who is indiscriminately dangerous to all those who walk on two legs...not bad. This fellow might be swayed by a bag or two of fresh fertilizer to join the ranks of the Orcs! Creeeak! Bend! Crunch and Crack! Limbs and Roots will break your back! Forward march!!!

The problem is that you would not pay 5€ for the set, but 25 for the second mini (or 20 with discount) just to get him. If there are three variants, you would need three of them to build all.
While I like that concept a lot, I am not keen on it for a Fellowship-miniature due to its cost.
But if we add the idea to the custom of producing MX with a limited variant, we could probably increase the output of MS-releases by just adding a change and then releasing a well received mini as a general release. We FS-members would still own our limited variant, and perhaps Mithril could profit from it.
Not all fs-releases are suited as general releases, too, but some definitely should see a wider audience and prolonged production.
you are all right: it might be, that we need to buy at least 3 figures. I did not really think about spending money as I feelt a need for that Elven heroe not relized yet by the Company. Unfortuntely I am not paid for this marketing/production idea ;D
To be true, the idea was born when I thought of the older M-figures, which often had multi-parts, so just some kind of nostalgia
