Really? He is a hideously deformed orc though... I'll try to find a you tube review on him.I saw a few photos of the Gothmog posted somewhere (most likely on Facebook) recently and it looked terrible. The head sculpt was okay but the body looked like it was a G.I. Joe or Sideshow. sort of like the old Sideshow POTA General Ursus with pudgy arms and short legs. Photos can be misleading unless taken by a good photographer but after seeing those I was happy to have ignored this line.
I had to fight off pesky little children in Toys'R'Us but I got my toybiz version!:lolWas hoping for Gimli next, not another Orc. Guritz was very hard to find on the small scale toybiz line, so maybe he is pretty popular. Easy pass for me though.
Hehe, good idea, they do look like dwarf beard trophies!Is it possible that Bolg wears dwarven scalps (beard and hair)? On the movie picture it doesnt look clearly like it but on the Actionfigure it looks like that the hair doesnt really belong to him... :thumb
The in hand pictures from eBay of Gothmog (he is sold in parts) dont look like the quality what I have expected from the prototype but I think that counts for almost any 1/6 release.
But I really like that they release all those bad guys thats usually a serious lack in the 1/6 hobby :thumb
Pretty damn good idea.Each figure released will contain part of a separate figure. Gandalf has the orc head. Guritz has the banner. Aragorn will have gauntlets and gloved hands. Nice.:thumb
Great idea as long as you don't miss one or they cancel the line b4 you can complete it!:lolEach figure released will contain part of a separate figure. Gandalf has the orc head. Guritz has the banner. Aragorn will have gauntlets and gloved hands. Nice.:thumb
Really? I don't agree, these are my two custom orcs, a Uruk Hai and a Morria one, they look pretty different to me.. What do you imagine they should look like? Just curious not knocking your opinion.The orcs were a big disappointment (the only one in fact) to me in the movies - I have learned that "all orcs are black except the green and brown ones" - the orcs in the films just looked like humans having a bad hair day. And we didn't see enough snaga.
(There are (in Tolkien mythology) two types of orcs: the smaller but more numerous snaga (for most people into other fantasy, snaga would probably just qualify as goblins or hobgoblins) and uruk-hai who are bigger, stronger and in every way better.)
