All members can comment on the promotion here. The promotion will run for 2 months only. Anyone who is interested will be asked to sign up before the 3rd week of September. Then they will be given access to the forum in October and November. If any member does not join the gold status membership before the last week of November will be removed from the forum, the newsletters and will no longer be allowed to purchase any fellowship figures.
Bronze lever members will not get the Aragorn and the Palantir figure or the Tengwar magazines when they join. They will only acquire them when they upgrade.
there are many Mithril customers who have a great interest in LotR and mithril but have not committed to the idea of joining the fellowship. We aim to encourage those collectors to try out the club and see for themselves how enjoyable it is.

I am not familiar with merchandising at all ... But it seems to be an idea/attempt that could turn out to be successful (in terms of getting new GF members). There's just one problem with it, I think. What then will be the Silver Level Membership ? ;D Keep on !
Anything to promote interest gets my vote as it may lower GF prices in the long-term, plus it does sound like a good idea on its own merits.
I would hope though that regular ranges would appear a little more frequently to keep the interest of those new and/or undecided collectors out there who may be swayed by this experiment to join in the fun.
It's a good idea - but I'd also think you should look at a "year three" Fellowship set up where another hundred or so of the first year's miniatures are released, at a reduced price, available to anyone who wants the "bronze" membership. Or something like that.
