Yesterday we showed you official images for the first wave of 7" Lord of the Rings Select figures coming from Diamond Select Toys which includes Gimli and Legolas, we now have an official image for the 13" Sauron Build-A-Figure to show you.

There will be a total of 6 figures done that you will need to get in order to complete the Sauron figure. We saw all 6 figures on display back in February during Toy Fair. The other four figures being released include Aragorn, Ringwraith, Frodo and a Goblin.

I still have my Battle of Helm's Deep box set from Toy Biz and they still look good to me. I might keep an eye out for this line but I doubt I'll get into it.

I keep an eye on this from the fence too, I love LoTR and I still have some of my old Toy Biz figures, they were great in their time, there were some whose aesthetics was ruined by their gimmicks and I'm glad that after so many years finally another company will be releasing LoTR figures...well, kinda since DST is not a company that I'd have taken into account to give the license, however I've heard good comments about their John Wick figure and that gives me a little hope on this line, but I'm not holding my breath neither. So let's wait and see.

I just really want that Build-a-figure Sauron more than anything, Ringwraith and Goblin are also must haves

I am really looking forward for this I would love to update the toy biz ones but it is diamond select who are notorious for dropping lines cross our fingers they dont and they get to a point where we could get a balrog. The neca one was always my grail but never found.

I would also like this line to be successful so that we can see a good number of characters having new versions, however I think a 7-inch scale Balrog would be far beyond what DST could consider feasible or profitable, they are not even very sure if they will continue making more BAFs besides Sauron.

If we're uncertain of getting the major characters from the LOTR, (I'm looking at you Gandalf the Grey), it's a bit hard to start collecting thesenew 7" versions; even with a BAF Sauronin tow.

To tell the truth there are several figures in the old Toy Biz LoTR line that are not in perfectly 6 inches.

Can they do it with Marvel select I wonder.

Nope, Disney/Hasbro won't allow 'em to do that.

I am not into LOTR, never was but that Build a figure looks amazing, and it just generally good to see Diamond select join build a figure trend after so many years. Can they do it with Marvel select I wonder.

That sauron is really nice and tempting, its a shame we'll have to wait like 3 years to get all the pieces to build him, also the figures look nice, legolas and gimli look on point but aragorn and frodo dont seem like they need a little more work on the face sculpt of the actors, also im on the fence because diamond almost always has qc issues or things that make the figures loose points, paint chipping, broken pegs, hands that wont hold the weapons, it seems like with diamond its always a coin flip and most times there issomething worng with the final production pieces, Ive always thought of diamond as Neca bootleg in some way, a figure that could be just as good as neca but ultimately ends up lacking because of those little things that they seem like they dont care and Neca does (the little extraeffort that neca puts in their figures comes a long way and with diamond its those little things that always come lacking that make their figures be just ok instead of what could be great figures), hopefully they put more love and thought with these figures.
