    Great video. The Lord of the Rings figures are nicely done, I hope we get all the main characters from Mego, the Ringwraiths would make for very cool looking figure.

    Great review, thank you!

    Ok, something has been bugging me about the head sculpt since I first saw this figure and I just now put my finger on it. It's not anything to do with the Andy's sculpt...it's the paint application. Mego didn't do the eyeliner over Aragon's eyes and it makes him look bug-eyed. In Brian's review you can see him next to Legolas and the problem becomes apparent. But I guess, with a very steady hand...it can be fixed.

    Yes! For me, that painted upper lash is distinctively "Mego" and frames the eye.

    Nice figure. I posted in another thread that LOTR could have Star Trek-like stamina for MegoCorp.

    Jeez, what a great idea--those work on vinyl?

    I really struggle with painting eyes and eyebrows as I age, paint pens might be a solution.
