Our friends at Diamond Select Toys are announcing the next two figures in their The Lord of the Rings action figure line. Fans can start looking forward to adding Aragorn and a Moria Orc to their Middle-earth action figure collections. These figures, like the previous, will have multiple points of articulation, detailed sculpting, and paint applications. Aragorn includes a torch, his ranger sword and the sword Anduril, while the orc includes a sword, a spear, an alternate helmeted head, and removable shoulder armor, so you can customize different orcs! These two figures will come in with a price tag of $29.99 like the rest of the line – and, like those earlier figures, they include parts which can be assembled to build your own Sauron!
Last night our friends at Weta Workshop presented collectors with another goodie we can add to our collections. Fans now have the chance to add the Rivendell Guard’s Helm to the growing relaunched 1:4 helm line. Limited to 750 pieces worldwide, this helm isn’t going to last long; and as you can see by the picture, the paint/detail on this piece is really fantastic. Weta also announced one of their fun announcements from Comic-Con has arrived. That’s right! The Mini Epics are here, and the video below even gives you a look at the packaging for these awesome little figures. If you have a loved one who might be interested, these little vinyl figures would make for a pretty fantastic stocking stuffer.

If space in your collection is at a premium then the mini line of statues from our friends at Weta Workshop has to be one of your go to lines. These great statues carry all the detail you expect from Weta Workshop but are scaled down into a smaller statue.
Tonight we get a new statue joining the line, this time from the bad guy side of Middle-earth. As the Fellowship made its way through Moria, Pippin set off a series of events and The Fellowship would have to face off against the Orcs of Moria. The Moria Orc mini depicts this Orc crawling on one of the beautiful pillars in Moria.
Fans who want to add this Orc can do so as he is currently in-stock and can be had for $125. Also, as you all know Weta has been running a contest for their uber cool 1:30 Dol Guldur signed by Richard Taylor, Leonard Ellis, and Dave Tremont. This contest has just seven days left and all the questions are now posted. Make sure you enter the 1:30 Dol Guldur Signed Set before it closes August 31st.
