Sting The Collection Grows

A few days ago I got him...Frodo!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Now my Sam and Bill won't be quite as unnerved surrounded by my bear collection...*though I keep telling Sam they're harmless...* I mean gee, Bill's even let one of my tiny ones ride him, as skittish as he is... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
  • So, now my LOTR collection consists of:
  • Sam and Bill (my prize peice) [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
  • The special edition TV Guide with all 4 Hobbits on the cover
  • A magazine I can't remember the title of with the page open to an article about LOTR---again w/a picture of all 4 Hobbits
  • "The Arms of the Hobbits"--a plaque with replicas of the 4 Hobbit swords and of course, the weapon of all weapons, Sam's saucepan [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
  • Sam's dear companion, Frodo
  • A stack of newspaper inserts about LOTR/TTT, and one that includes a large article about Li'l Mr. Wood
  • ...and lastly, a Spanish version of the book, "A Bad Case of Stripes". (Yeah, I know it's not LOTR, but there is a site where you can hear this book being read by Sean Astin) [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I have six action figures (Sam, Frodo, Pippin, Merry, Legolas, and an orc that came with Merry and Pippin), three One Rings (isn't that wrong?), two bookmarks, the "Return of the Rings" TIME magazine, the USAToday poster and all those puzzles and games and stuff from that one, the review from EW (I was horrified by the "B" rating, but then I saw it...le sigh!), and tomorrow I think our paper will have a review in it, so I'll save that. I also have all the clippings from the last Oscar coverage in our paper, and a picture of Orlando Bloom from USAToday a while back.

Samwise... you can get a lot of FOTR action figured at KBee Toys (and they are on sale now)! They also had some TTT figures, but I think that my mom says she's seen the most at Target. I believed I am receiving a stock pile for Christmas... YAY!

Also, have you seen the wonderful Sam and Frodo figures from Applause??? You can see them at their website... www.applause.com - they look most like them than any other figures I've seen!!!
I must now go to join pio at our LOTR merchandise anonymous meeting...

Here's Frodo and Sam... but the website has so much more great things, and these are the ones that are really hard to come by.

Sounds great Samwise!

I've been gathering the Movie cards (not the trading card game) and I got 2 really cool ones. One is a foil of Legolas the other is a piece of movie memrobelia; a piece of Pippin's cloak.

OOOoooo! Rae! I was given a collector's card with a piece of Sam's traveling coat in it! I don't know where my friend got it, but it is truly a treasure now.
I got some great giveaways at the midnight showing too: A Fan Club mag, a free long sleeve T-shirt (compliments of a local radio station and New Line Cinema), some Decipher cards, and the same friend that gave me the above gave me a set of those toys that come in the German prize eggs!!!! It was so fun!

Samwise... I found the Frodo and Sam at Suncoast Videos... do they have those by you? They are so cute, and quite sizeable! I also got the Treebeard with Merry and Pippin (the Applause not the Toybiz version).

No, Miss Tigerlily, 'fraid I never heard of it. Oh, well. My "Sam" is still trying to convince my "Frodo" that my bears are friendly, anyway, and I don't know what my bears would do if I had a Sam and Frodo with "arms" drawn. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Well, I don't have the money to go out and buy all this wonderful stuff, but for Christmas I got this beautiful dark green suade shirt. It has long sleeves and the coller laces up. I call it my "elf shirt". I figured I could post that here since someone talked about their "hobbit socks". very cute by the way...

Oh, how lucky you all here are!!!
I can't get hold of anything so cool - nothing seems to be on sale here, and I've no idea how you buy things by Internet.
And what makes it absolitely unfair - my daughter has stuffed the flat with her H-P stuff. Why can't I? Why aren't they selling anything???
I've only got books (in English and in Russian), the film in English - had to search hard for it... and lots of 'rubbish' in my poor computer.
Just say you are sorry for me... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Well, tonight I got a late Christmas gift from my "LOTR expert" friend. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] The Samwise Gamgee action figure w/Moria mines battle action base from Toy Biz. Not quite as nice as the ones above, but not bad, either. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]He even comes with a sword in one hand and a saucepan in the other, so he can "whack" the Orc that's sticking its head through the door (okay, yeah, I've played with it.....) ;D

Tigerlilly, you're the only one I ever heard of who also had a piece of a cloak! They must be special!

Really? Wow.
I've seen the costume cards on Ebay, but I have no clue where my friend got it (though I know she went to the Toronto exhibit, so I suspected that she got it there... since it was a costume exhibit... maybe...).

If it's appropriate, I'd like to add my memories of TTT. I absolutely fell in love with Frodo and Gollum all over again.

Ooooo!!!! I saw that at Noble Collections, Rae! It is lovely. I am also fond of the Rivendell inspired necklace, but I spent my wad on the Evenstar pendant... so my LOTR jewelry buying is currently at a hault.
I kinda hope they make a replica of Eowyn's necklace because I plan on dressing up as her for ROTK.

So, now my LOTR collection consists of:

Sam and Bill (my prize peice)

The special edition TV Guide with all 4 Hobbits on the cover

A magazine I can't remember the title of with the page open to an article about LOTR---again w/a picture of all 4 Hobbits

"The Arms of the Hobbits"--a plaque with replicas of the 4 Hobbit swords and of course, the weapon of all weapons, Sam's saucepan

Sam's dear companion, Frodo

A stack of newspaper inserts about LOTR/TTT, and one that includes a large article about Li'l Mr. Wood

...and lastly, a Spanish version of the book, "A Bad Case of Stripes". (Yeah, I know it's not LOTR, but there is a site where you can hear this book being read by Sean Astin)
Added: some interesting little "viewmaster" type thingies that each focus on one character--in this case Gandalf, Frodo, Bilbo, Aragorn, and (((shudder))) the Ringwraiths (hm. That's 9 characters...oh well.) The guy I bought them from said there's another series he'll soon have for sale, which had BETTER include SAM!! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Soon I'll have one of Li'l Mr. Wood (OOC), and I hope to find one of Sean Astin.

My collection consists of:
*several sets of paperback copies of the Silm, the Hobbit, & LotR (from current versions with movie photos to the old psychedelic ones with emus/eggplants)
*BoLT part 1 & 2
*history of LotR parts 1-4
*Tolkein Illustrated Encyclopedia
*Atlas of Middle-Earth
*paperback of Bored of the Rings
*the Alan Lee illustrated centenary of LotR
*the Annotated Hobbit
*first American ed Silm
*collectors ed Hobbit
*first ed collectors ed LotR
*unabridged audio cd's of Silm, Hobbit & LotR
*theatrical release dvd FotR
*extended version dvd FotR
*approx 200-300 photos from the film that cycle as screensavers/wallpaper in both my home computer & my work computer
*miniature replica of Sting (letter opener size)
*full-size replica of Sting with scabbard
*full-size replica of Strider's ranger sword
*(the full-size replica of Narsil is still on back order)

My son & one or two friends are envious. My daughter and the rest of my friends (and co-workers) think I've gone off the deep end. However, the collection has acquired a life of its own and will continue to grow. I may have to get a part time job to help pay for my addiction, but obsession requires sacrifices.
