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.

Oh well...here’s hoping for a series 2!

Same, I have put bids on a couple when they've come up and gotten outbid because I won't go over a certain point :(

Haven't looked recently, how bad at the prices on the HT ones now?


Lurtz and Ewoyn was high $100 to low $200 last I checked, with the Witch king in the low $100(Found him in the wild had to pay for Lurtz and Ewoyn)


Wow crazy prices for minis.

Does anyone know if Barnes and Noble has stopped selling these? I don't see them on their website anymore.

Agreed. It can be a game at B&N too. They increase the percentages pretty quickly from 25% to 75% but sometimes waiting too long and stuff flies out of the bins. I've tried waiting for stuff to hit 50-75% and have missed out on good deals because stuff does sell.

I was there on Sunday (Rancho Cucamonga) and not a single pop was left in the clearance bins.

Thats the market tho. They were 1/72, 1/72, and 1/36 in an exclusive box. Extremely hard to get, and prices reflect that, also the only versions of these characters available. I have none of the 3.

Buckbeak on the other hand, now thats crazy.

Buckbeak is one of the reason I jumped ship from collecting HP and the fact the LOTR style is so much better than the cutsey HP style

Correct. Exclusives are Barnes (tempted Galadriel, Invisible Frodo, Gold Gimli) and HT (Eowyn, Lurtz, Witch King).

I don't think this set is officially "vaulted" yet, but the store exclusives have been out of stores for awhile. But you never know, Barnes and Noble could stock them again!

Don't lose hope. I found Witch King over the weekend. My area is so hunted I was surprised at my luck. The box had been thoroughly squeezed and with the weight being so close to Saruman, I almost left it behind.

I was lucky enough to trade a Pippin for a Merry. Now for those HT three...I just can’t justify that sort of money

After hearing how the minis are hard to find...I feel even worse that the third LOTR mini box i ever pulled was an aragorn duplicate. Wish I oculd have gotten a third unique character.
