Toy Vault's Barrow-Wight - Xoanon @ 15:54 PST
The good folks at Toy Vault have sent me thier latest group of images and still via CD (a very cool idea by the way) and I've posted a few for your viewing pleasure.

From: Toy Vault

'The Barrow-Wights are some of the best characters in the series," said Jon Huston, creative director of Toy Vault. "The wights in Middle-earth had tremendous powers. They were able to effect the minds of hobbits and humans, effect the weather, and cast spells to achieve their ends. when Frodo met the wight, Gandalf felt that moment was more dangerous than when Frodo met the Nazgul on Weathertop"

The Barrow-Woght is a six-inch figure featuring eleven points of articulation; a colored plastic gem is implanted in the skull of the figure so that light is reflected through the eyes. The Barrow-Wight will be released in three versions:

The Barrow-Wight ($12.95)
The evil Spirit of Angmar ($14.95)
The Nocturnal Barrow-wight ($12.95)

Tolkien Story at fatbrain.com - Xoanon @ 09:26 PST
I would like to inform you of a brief book that I have written. It is called: Exploring Middle-Earth: Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings.

I wrote this 75 page book mainly for those who have not experienced Tolkien. With the anticipation building over the upcoming movies, I thought an introductory text covering Tolkien the author, his created world and characters, a discussion of his major themes, and some teaser text about the new films would be a good idea.

My work is available in digital only format and has been published by fatbrain.com. I would like to know if you would care to write a brief announcement about my book on your site and/ or provide the link directly to the webpage where it is available. The price of the book is $4.00, which allows one to download and then print as many copies as they want.

I think it is a great overview as well as an interesting presentation of Tolkien's themes in The Lord of the Rings. I would appreciate any assistance you can give me. Please respond to this email with any questions or to let me know if you decide to put something on your site.

Here is the url:


I have attached a Word file with some excerpts for you to review if you desire. Thank you for your time and keep up the great work on your Tolkien site.

Bilbo's Great Adventure CD - Calisuri @ 22:18 PST
Bilbo Adventure CDCheck out this great offering from The Warm Weather Music Company:

"Bilbo's Great Adventure, Kevin Henry's new CD release, is the contemporary tribute to "The Hobbit" all J.R.R. Tolkien fans have been looking for. This musical account wraps powerful original lyrics in dazzling, yet simple melodies in twenty four songs (16-page lyric booklet included)and sixty-three minutes of music."

"An acoustic presentation, a mix of folk-rock-blues and new-age musical styles takes no creative license with regard to the story and follows The Hobbit perfectly. This CD is a MUST for J.R.R. Tolkien and Hobbit fans of all ages who can relive their reading experience by listening to the "greatest adventure fantasy." In fact you might get the urge to buy the book and read it again!"
