Nada. Nichts. Nothing.

I think there may be some sort of licensing issue with the LoTR and Hobbit Pops and am not expecting any new ones. It should be one of their flagship lines, and they didn't even debut, let alone tease, a single new figure during SDCC. We had a good run though! At least we got some really cool Pops while the fun lasted.

They must have some ideas still waiting, I'd think it's too popular of a line / movie / books to not continue.

I second that!

If they still have the license, I can't understand why they wouldn't have already announced some new releases. It just doesn't add up. I have asked them on their IG but not gotten any response.

That said, if we do get a new wave I will be the first to bite. But I'm not holding my breath!

Mouth of Sauron must be on a lot of people's lists, which is great since now we know most people prefer the extended movies lol

I would really like to see a 10in Sauron as well as Gollum, maybe a Gollum diorama pop

Need some Rohan riders

Me personally I would like to see more orcs. If only we got some from the Shadow of Mordor. So many cool characters in that

I'd still love to see Theoden, Eomer, Eowyn, Faramir & Wormtongue as Pops, otherwise I'm happy with having the full Fellowship, Galadriel, Gollum & Saruman.

It appears to be the case. No news in almost a year. I have written them to ask if they still have the license and no reply for months...

That won't be for another year at least, and they still have so many they could do already, without needing the new series to debut. Disappointed that they don't at least let us know what's happening. I get that they can't divulge all their plans, but would be nice to give us some info.

Two ideas I loved above would be a LotR Freddy and 10" Gollum. It'd also maybe love a 10" Sauron!

With LOTR there will always be so much they can do. What if they get into the animated style for pops also.

But why wait for another year, when there's TONS of LoTR and Hobbit Pops they could do now? The source material is bursting at the seams with cool Pops ... Cave Troll, Ringwraiths on Steed, the Company of Dwarves, Shelob, Thranduil... I could go on and on!
