Oh, and WHY is there no white hand banners in the Uruk-hai army?????????
and new progress on Helms deep in other thread...
The lack of an Orc doesn't make me sad, the lack of the hairpiece does.

I might be reading into this too much, but perhaps someone thought at the last minute that the one with Lurtz's hair might be mistaken for an Uruk-hai, and quickly removed it.
If the lack of hair is really that worrying, you could always equip Lurtz with the armour and give his hair to the Orc.
Rebooting my Flickr, so almost all my images will now disappear, sorry!

You must have the Gimli head. Mind posting a pic of both sides of the Gimli head?

Dunno why he even has a dual face, since he has a beard that covers his face....

Here's a youtube video showing the new magazine (May-June 2012). It is of very poor quality, however. Hopefully, it'll be available on the LEGO website, soon.

I've forgotten if I still have my subscription so... That'd be great, yes please. I hope (probably unreasonably) that with the sets appearing in the May-June issue, maybe they'll come out in early May rather than in June. The sooner the better!

According to the Toy Fair, the sets are going to be released in June. But, I asked someone at my local LEGO Store if they have any idea about a specific date, and they said the only info LEGO has given them is Summer release. They say it is because the people who gave LEGO the license still retain the rights to push the release back or forward to whenever they want. So, this information can be taken as both bad and good: either they get released a bit later than scheduled, or they decide to release them earlier. I hope they just stick with the original June release.

Does anyone know the price of the forge, it isn't listed with the others.

Each set says it's a June 1st release, but sometime later this month they will probably be available for shipping...
$333 (rounded) for all of them? Exactly half way to the number of the
I really need to slow down. I bought way too much last month, and I've got TWO week long vacations coming up. While I'm a huge Tolkien fan and have been wanting this for years, I'll probably leave it for my wife to get me for Christmas... maybe I can get one for Father's Day to tide me over.

Not if you count the Orc Forge, which likely adds another $40.
I just hope that the euro prices will be reasonable enough since I intend on getting them all, if not really most of them first and the rest later...

At the moment, 1 US$ equals 0.97 AU$.
- PotC: London Escape: Amazon 40, Australia 89-99
- PotC: Whitecap Bay: Amazon: 65, Australia 117-120
- SW: X-Wing: Amazon 47, Australia 120
- SW: Tie Fighter: Amazon 34, Australia 99
- SW: Droid Escape: Amazon 20, Australia 49
I assume that these sets are good indicators for LotR prices. :(
