The Tauriel thing is because a couple months ago when it was announced The Hobbit would become 3 movies instead of 2, it was semiannounced that Tauriel would have to be moved to the second movie and would not feature in An Unexpected Journey. However the toyline was already coming out so the packaging, case assortment, etc. wasnt changed. So shes still in the toyline and people thought shed become "rare and hard to find" blah blah. More scalper crap really.
The Tauriel issue I already knew - I've been stalking... I mean "watching" this line very closely for months. I just think it's funny that people still think she's a big deal when other licenses have also put out material from what would have been the end of the first movie, back when there was just supposed to be two. Lego has a Mirkwood Spiders and Barrel Escape sets that feature characters that were due to be in the first movie before the re-organization of it.
Since we're on the subject, I wonder when/if we'll ever see the UK 6" Yazneg and Australia 4" Invisible Bilbo figures stateside. I was hoping they'd be an exclusive somewhere in time for the movie, but that's not going to happen. There are so few places carrying the line anyway and with wave two being released sometime in the spring, we could've used the boost.
Nutimus, have you gotten into any of the new Weta stuff?
