Lord of the Rings Mystery Minis

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

These are seriously amazing! Will definitely be getting the cases for these!

Anyone else think it’s a little odd to have a gold Gimli though? He’s never gold like that lol

That is true they are all about them shinies! I don’t hate it either just not sure why they did it heh. I’m hoping that’s a 1/72 so I don’t have to stress about getting it. Otherwise all of the others I will definitely need to get. They are seriously amazing!

If they do this I bet we get more waves of them down the line... here’s to hoping we get a Smaug mm! (And I could see a gold Smaug too! Haha)

That Witch King and Sauron look amazing!! (Understatement)

And could you imagine Smaug variants? Regular, Gold... open wings?? Ooo and of course we’ll need a Balrog.. maybe even Shadowfax too? Ok... now I’m just making myself excited haha

Completed the first set of LOTR Pops, so will definitely need to get those. Really like the minis too, but don't know if I want to go down that path too even if some of them (ahem, Witch King) do look awesome

Sauron and the Wraith I will need for sure. and I would kind of love a Shadow of Mordor with Talion, Celebrimbor, a half Tal/Cel "bright Lord" hybrid and of course Ratbag.

At first I thought "this is an insta-case-buy". Then I reallized " hmmm, this is actually a whole-set-buy".

Now, which case to start with....
I bought a Mystery Mini and thought it was cool. Now I have shelves covered in Funko vinyl products. What Happened?

These are so great! A little sad there are no Boromir, Merry and Pippin to make the Fellowship, but love all the ones they did include. So excited for a Galadriel!! So...I couldn't help but notice that there are only 12 commons pictured. Could that possibly (please, please, please) mean that these are all 1/12?!!! [-o<

Look at the side of display box and the caption. 3 missing, 3 exclusives that they forgot to announce? <---Good eye, J.

Well now I am happy and bummed all at the same time! Super happy for the three to complete the fellowship, but bummed it's going to be harder to find some since they won't be all 1/12. Mostly still excited though because...LOTR minis!!! :cheers:

Worst case scenario is Merry, Pippin and Boromir are Walmart or Walgreens exclusives. I wouldn't mind Gamestop. But hey, if those 3 are exclusives then the dream of a case of 1/12's is still alive :cheers:

That was my fear, that they'd be in the Disney penguin pose or they'd look like the Stranger Things ones (which are the worst looking minis IMO). I'm pleased with how these look. Very similar to the GoT ones.

I'm going to order a regular case from Big Bad Toy Store and then I think I'll just need to resort to buying the ones I need rather than taking the chance--looking at my multiples of Sorting Hats and Severus Snapes.

This is the first set to make me perk up my ears since Horror 3, but if these have some of the insane half-the-case-is-one-thing ratios some of the recent cases have, I'm not even going to try. It's too depressing to think of having a shelf with a Frodo, an Arwen, and 18 Gimlis, etc. It would be really neat though if the standard set was just 1/12 across the board, even though we all know the odds of that are slim.
