The Lord of the Rings Action Figures
The Lord of the Rings is one of the most enduring stories in literature. It challenges the imagination and lets the reader roam Middle Earth. At least that’s what sucked me in. I’m also a collector of action figures. No, not dolls, ACTION figures. And that’s what makes The Lord of the Rings figures so great. Each character is an action star unto themselves.
The figures below are based on the films. The details given to most of the figures is so lifelike. There are definitely influences of the stars in the action figures, but they also have a touch of what I imagined the characters to look like while I read the stories.
LOTR Gandalf Figures
The Lord of the Rings Frodo Figures
Frodo Baggins has the burden of being the Hobbit entrusted with destroying the Ring. He is the lone hope of saving Middle Earth. His is an unenviable path. Surrounded by those sworn to protect him, he must ensure that he will not fail, lest Sauron conquer all the land.
My Precious! These are some of the creepiest, life-like figures of Gollum I’ve seen. I’m still afraid that some of them will come to life as I sleep and just crouch next to me.
Aragorn Action Figures
Strider is of noble blood and leads the Fellowship after the loss of Gandalf. Most of these figures do not look much like Viggo Mortensen from the film, but they do capture the strength of character from the books.
