AOME LOTR Ringwraith (Dark Rider #2)

Today on Sci-Fi and Fantasy Saturday we bring another Ringwraith in the Armies of Middle Earth (AOME) Lord of The Rings series by Play Along Toys.  The first Ringwraith issued (see 19 Oct 2010 blog) was marketed as a 'Dark Rider'.  The one in today's post was marketed as a 'Ringwraith' and there is yet a third one on horse back which was also marketed as simply 'Ringwraith'.  So, what I have done is to simply label these as 'Dark Rider #1, #2, and #3' to differentiate between them.  You can tell by the shiny plastic that this was one of the earlier LOTR issues.  Compare this to the 'Mouth of Sauron' figure I posted last week (15 Jan) and you can readily see the difference in surface textures.  Enjoy!
