I'm going to collect fleshies....gasp. Can't belive I finally said that!

But the problem is I bought POC sets for the torsos for my pirates and couldn't use half of them because they had tan chest parts showing...maybe the LOTR torsos will be all browns and greens, but I think I'm finally just going to keep the fleshie heads and try to incorporate fleshies and yellow...
Technically, if there's a set with Smaug we'll get Benedict Cumberbatch, too.RichardAM wrote:I just realised that because of the theme we get a Martin Freeman minifig. Sherlock MOCs a go go!

It's too bad we never got a Sallah minifig, otherwise John Rhys-Davies would be joining Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, and Christopher Lee in the additions to the "Actors-with-two-different-characters-made-into-minifigs" list (assuming we get Galadriel and Saruman eventually, which I think likely but not assured).
Note that I said additions to the list - the three I mentioned are all LotR actors with one other "minifig credit" to their names.wobnam wrote:Kev wrote:Don't leave Harrison Ford off that list...
And, technically, Kenny Baker
But Alfred Molina has three!

I love that we're getting for both, but my big fear is that, like all the other licenses (Toy Story/POTC) it's be just these two waves of sets and then nothing else. If there's one thing Lego love doing it's buying an expensive license then supporting it as a theme for only for a year, so I think it's a valid concern. Maybe the fact that there's a Hobbit sequel too will help ensure this doesn't happen though?
