AOME LOTR - Prologue Elves

For those who have been following the Fire Engine and Emergency Vehicle Friday posts you'll notice there haven't been any the past couple of weeks. After looking at my photos I decided none of them were really that great so that means they'll have to be re-done, but that may take awhile given the number of projects currently in the works. Hopefully this Friday will bring another post.

This past week I was fortunate enough to acquire the complete 19 piece Burger King licensed tie-ins to Peter Jackson's 'Lord of The Rings' trilogy. The toys are still in their original packaging, with each figure having its own base shaped like a wedge. There are 18 characters/wedges, and when assembled, form a round display with the Ring of Power at the center - the 19th piece in the set. I don't know about you, but I can't wait until 'The Hobbit' movie tie-ins start to come out in stores. Generally speaking I'm not into the larger collectible figures (mostly because I have no room for them!!) so I hope someone issues a toy line in the same scale as the Play Along Toys series.

Toys & Stuff continues with its LOTR blast from the past by bringing you another set in Play Along Toys wonderful Armies of Middle Earth series: Prologue Elves. The Prologue story line could have benefited from more figures but it was still good to see these offerings. Also, if you'll remember, there was a set 'The Defeat of Sauron' with Elendil, Isildur, and Sauron.
