Things I wished I saw: Rivendell
Alas.The prices certainly are steep. I can tell right away, though, that I will not be able to resist acquiring the Gandalf fig.
And Tom Bombadil, but that's obviously not going to happen.

92% of BZPers use sigfads. If you are part of the 8% that think them pointless, copy and paste this into your signature.
Yayz! I'm an old, defenseless leader guy!

Right, first, let me express my satisfaction with this entry in a internet slang-ish way.
THIS IS AWESOME.

(yeah, I'm not normally that cheesy and dramatic)
Thanks and credit to Smeagol4 and Black Six for the proto boosts. Credit to this guy for being so spectacular!
I was formerly known as Krakuaofsonics (if that means something to you)...
RotGBs chapter 3 is on hiatus, and probably won't be heard from for a while . If you're on the sound team for BNG (or want to be) and haven't heard about the reorg, PM me..

Thanks for the catch.
They look pretty awesome! I really love all the details they've included!I would also just like to point out that to get the entire fellowship you're only looking at $172.96, not $302.95, as the Helm's Deep set is not required for this feat. (Of the fellowship, it only comes with Aragorn and Gimli, which can be acquired in Weathertop and Moria respectively.

Three great comedies at one low, low price....NOTHING!
Kicking the Bucket (archived)
Three late-middle age matoran think of something they want to do before they kick the bucket.
Choose Your Own Bionicle Adventure (archived)
Navigate your way through a myriad of meaningless choices as you try to not make a fool of yourself in perhaps the only comedy ever written almost entirely in spoiler tags.
Useless BZP Junk that you Must Have!!!
Get to your phone, whip out your credit card, and prepare to buy some useless BZPower related junk that has no benefit on society except that you want it!!!

WHAT!? You dont' like Tom Bombadil? Crazy.These look even better than expected, and I had hight expectations. Of course, the hight prices offset that a bit, but they'll be worth it. I can't help ut notice that there's a catapult function to throw Gimli into the fray in the Helm's Deep set, which I find highly amusing and epic.
If you're only trying to get the Fellowship minifigs, then E-bay is your friend. As for these sets, they're kind of steep. I might pick one or two of them up, but only if I can find a good price. Anyway, next year they will absolutely have to make a Mines of Moria set with the Baldrog, as well as Minas Tirith, Rivendell, and Bag End. Oh, and Mount Doom. As for Tom Bombadil, I don't really miss him. To be honest, Tom Bombadil was my least favorite part of the entire Hobbit+LotR cycle. -don't touch my pocket protector

Everyone is one choice away from being a bad guy in someone else's story.

You might want to reread the second paragraph of the article again:
Kind of small for the prices... and too bad there aren't any Hobbit sets, what with the movie coming out, but other than that, awesome!
There will be Hobbit sets, they just were not on display, likely due to Warner Bros not wanting to 'spoil' the movie just yet.
We'll start off with what wasn't on display. There were no sets from The Hobbit. This made me very sad. Jim Foulds suggested we might want to pay close attention to San Diego Comic Con though.

Hey everybody! I'm working on getting a Bionicle podcast set up, it's almost ready to go, and I have one or two regular positions open for anyone with Bionicle knowledge who would like to join! Or if you would perfer not to be a regular, you can guest star as well. We will also be reading and critiquing short stories and possibly epics on the podcast, so if you'd like yours read let me know and I'll look it over and we may review it! For details and any questions you may have, just send me a PM.
To all image makers! I am in need of a logo for a podcast that I am going to get up and running pretty soon, and one of the final things I need is a logo for the podcast! If anyone would be interested in making me a good quality image, just message me, I would greatly appreciate it!
