Both of those lead me to suspect the list is wishful thinking rather than an actual leak form someone at Target (and why would Target know already what was wave 9 and have that info readily available to rank and file employees...)

    Doc said the two-packs were coming back, but in a different box design for the reasons you stated. But a number of those should be Wave 8, unless 8 is like 6 and built around international variants. Idol, Twisted Sister, Ganddalf and Frodo are the only ones who would seem to need the time to be pushed into a ninth wave. Zombies, TNG Jeckyl/Hyde would be repurposed EMCE or other parts.

    I’m hoping for Arwen, Eowyn and Galadriel for the LOTR figures. As well as Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, and Merry and Pippin. If we’re lucky we can get the twelve Dwarves as well. I want the female Romulan Commander eventually. She was one of the better Trek villains.

    I loved Aragorn and Legolas so I am hopeful for much more to both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. I agree with all the characters JediJaida mentioned and I hope we get Smeagol and some Nazgul as well!

    well if they tool a smaller body for the hobbits we may well get Gollum and the dwarves. they have to make it worthwhile to produce the new body size

    ^Absolutely. And DM/Emce already has the tooling for child bodies. The question is, will it be worth it to tweak the molds to add that new MegoCorp neck connector (and hobbit feet)? I think so, I think LOTR has legs.

    My suggestions:

    Gandalf
    Gollum
    Frodo
    Samwise
    Gimli
    Galadriel
    Orc
    Witch-King

    That'd be a darn fine collection IMO.

    Come to think of it, 8" feet on the child body might work well for Hobbits & Gollum...
