    But he has his pipe staff that is taken by Saruman, it would have to be before the Fellowship is formed as he would have the "Moria" crystal staff.

Upgrade the old ones maybe, but I have great sentimental value towards them.

      Same here high hopes and excited about that classic line, I have no intention to buy all the old ones again but will be happy to get a new pose/scene in a quieter style for my favourite characters and hopefully we will see unexplored ones too.

        My first guess was Weathertop too, but just check Wetas item description guys

        Ringwraith at Bree:

          Of course, how could I make that mistake
          I’m glad they went for the pipe staff.

            Poopin Pippin could finally be usurped from my collection if he is added to this new line in Hobbit attire to match the original Merriadoc

              I'm not.

              If we were supposed to finally get a new and cohesive Fellowship set, Gandalf already ruined that out of the gate by holding his pre-Fellowship staff.

                You can't display this Gandalf next to a Legolas he never bore this staff while meeting him? That's a new level of nitpicking

                  See my full reasoning in the Gandalf thread.

                  Oh, I can display them next to each other no problem. In fact, since the two of them already knew each other before the Fellowship formed, that's not even an issue. Heck, I have Bard next to Lurtz. Why? I dunno... space and... bows? Whatever.

                  However, if I am trying to theme together an actual, accurate Fellowship, heck yeah, I'm going to nitpick. I fully own up to being silly about these things, but it's my collection after all, so I can choose what makes sense and what doesn't.

                    Of course, nobody said otherwise.

                    If Weta had made this mistake on the Fellowship statue set, it would had been worse.

                      That would have been inexcusable. This only rates as high as a very personal annoyance, nothing more.

                        I have high hopes too. Been waiting for some more static (and slightly more affordable pieces) for a while now. I really hope they will release a new Gimli in that line. I have his miniature, but missing a 1/6 statue and he’s one of my favorites from LOTR. A new Aragorn would be great aswell. Or an affordable Galadriel, etc. So yeah, hope

                          seriously I LOVE the new classic line - the thing is that I have no space for more statues what to do what to do...

                            Buy a bigger house? It’s the option we picked

                              aah well that would be a good solution indeed but not possible for me for now but ya know I am going to pre-order the classic statues anyway (I am weak), I will try to make some dedicated space in my room, I have time till February 2021 it is a great hobby to collect LOTR Weta statues but the space is always an issue for those living in a flat and especially if you have also some statues from other fantasy/game lines

                                Tell me about it we have been living in flats/apartments for a few years. Room for statues has been a problem the last few years, especially since we also collect movies and tv shows. Thank god we finally have the means to move to a real house. Dedicated tv room with a lot of storage.

                                Wise of you to buy them anyway! You have a few months to figure out where you will place them hope you get some more room soon!

                                  Thanks I know. I don’t know why it did that but it usually just puts my name there so I didn’t bother to look. Doh!

                                  My pleasure. The reason I thought Minas Tirith was the base looks like light grey stone steps. Plus he has his scarf which he may be wearing when he goes to find Isildur’s Scroll. I can’t recall exactly if he’s wearing it then but I seem to remember it. Neither of which he has in Moria though I admit at first I did think maybe he was could be from that but the scarf made me cancel that idea.

                                      I will only speak for myself but it’s absolutely my pleasure. I love this place and I love you guys. You guys are always amazing to me every time I post a picture or video. I can’t give you all my usual Comic-Con treatment so I hope this works with what’s going on.

                                      Edit: You guys are always amazing to me with any post but especially so when I post a picture of video. So thanks again to you all for always making me feel like I didn’t fail when I post those pictures/videos.
