BTW, I'm not really sure what the objection is (aside from fleshies, but, c'mon, everyone here has access to the secondary market, and most people doing the objecting probably have hundreds of figs in their collection, so the complaint seems to be "I'm happy over here eating ice cream. It makes me mad that other people might eat pie.")
But aside from that, let's take this MOC:
"It's an inn!" say the Castle purists. "We love it!"
"It's my interpretation of the Prancing Pony" says Jon Furman (the builder).
"Arrgh! We hate it now! Down with Tolkien!" yell the Castle purists.
I mean, really? I suspect that a lot of the sets could be relabeled (and, I suppose, have non-fleshy figs swapped in), and all of us would be pretty excited by them.
And I'm curious how they will make a Lego ring? That photo looks more like Lord of the Bracelets...

Thirdly, yes fleshies, had to spoil it didn't you, LEGO. Fourth, Wow! a Lord of the Rings theme! And lastly the issue of the ring. I can't imagine there NOT being a special element for something so central to the plot of the books/ films/ animated series/ breakfast cereal, whether it be oversized or not. I think a printed tile - while infinitely more likely - would be a disapointment. Lord of the Tiles just doesn't have the same ring to it
All in all, I'm looking forward to this new theme.

Were you maybe thinking of Hermione's Prisoner of Azkaban torso, with the printed Time Turner? 'Cause something like that could work.Bruce N H wrote:I was thinking there was some existing torso like this, but can't find it. Something like the Guardian's amulet from KK2, or Yoda's little flute-thingy. . .
