Lord of Rings Action Figures
Have a Little Fun With Colleting
After the success of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy adaptation from the original works of J.R.R Tolkien, many different collectable Lord of the Rings action figures were released to coincide with each of the films. There are a few different series of action figures available which you can see below. The official movie action figures are available in different collections from The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
Some of the figures appear more than once as action figures as they journey through middle earth, eg Gandalf the Grey becomes Gandalf the White.
The two main producers of Lord of Rings action figures are Toy Biz Toys who produced many six inch articulated replicas from the movies and Play Alongs three inch"Armies of Middle Earth" series of LOTR action figures as well as many deluxe playsets.
Gandalf the Grey - The Fellowship of the Ring
The ToyBiz Toys range of 6 inch Lord of the Rings action figures based on the first movie in the series, The Fellowship of the Ring feature many of the different characters from the movie and are movie replicas that are created with incredible detail to remain true to the movie. There are over 30 different figures from the first movie alone in this series. Many of the action figures here are no longer in production but most are still available to purchase from places like Amazon (see below). Of course this means that because they are no longer being produced they will eventually become unavailable and if you are a collector it is worth getting them while you still can.
This is the 6 inch Gandalf the Grey action figure made by ToyWiz with light up staff and is incredibly detailed for a 6 inch figure. With 12 points of articulation, Gandalf can be posed in several positions and comes with his staff and sword, Glamdring. A great collectors item for Tolkien fans.

The Two Towers 6 inch Action Figures - Gollum
Gollum is one of the best action figures to collect, his character is unique in the movies, unlike hobbits, elves or orcs there is only one gollum. The Gollum action figure from the two towers was released in 2003 and is now also out of production.
As Gollum is supposed to be smaller than the other characters in the movies, the Gollum action figure from the Two Towers is only 4 inches in height but comes with a rock based stand that is actually electronic and produces one phrase "My precious!" Gollum is a great collectors action figure.

Most collectors will agree you can't have Gandalf the Grey without Gandalf the White. The third installment of the film and the third set of action figures from ToyBiz.
