Thread: FOTR toys and collectables
Also I have a copy of "Sting" that is no toy, but which could be deadly in the wrong hands as the edges have been sharpened and the point is extremely sharp. Both sides of Sting's 15 in. long leaf shaped stainless steel blade are deeply engraved with elvish writing and a flourish. The guard and pommel are finished with an antique gun-metal patina, and the handgrip is hardwood with a pair of faux silver vines spiraling three-and-a-half times around it.
I have recently ordered a matching scabbard for the blade. My sword is 22 in. long overall; I have seen another advertised that is 27 in. long, which must be the large one that the hobbits carried while my shorter one must be the one see in scenes with humans.
The scabard arrived today 24 May and is nicely made; however, it is too big for my smaller version sword: lots of rattle. I have just ordered the larger one and will report on its looks when it arrives.

A real replica of sting? Awesome. Sadly, my financial situation does not quite stretch to anything of any real value.
It is kind of fun to watch the kids play with the LOTRs figurines though. We have had all the hobbits riding Asfaloth at the same time, an early wedding for Aragorn and Arwen, a palantir throwing contest, and a ringwraith sitting down to a nice cup of tea with the Fisher Price family.
Only trouble is that Arwen's knee joints break easily and Gimli's ponytail keeps comming off. Lotsa fun though.

Woke up this morning to find Aragorn's minature oilskin cloak in my bed. Kids!
He is wearing his warrior costume and has a big ugly grimace on his face. If you squeeze his legs, he swings and chops with his sword. Kids will love him! They have been asking for an Elrond, but I hadn't seen one yet. There is also a Bilbo, but I haven't got him yet. I imagine this means that there will also be a Galadriel?
Aragorn has been re-released with much better accessories. Darn! And you can get a Sam and Frodo with an elven boat. I also saw a cave troll, complete with chains and chopping action.
It is totally weird, but I love it! It appeals to my sense of humour for some reason.
