Woolworths Goes LOTR As Well - Xoanon @ 19:33 PST
From: James

I saw your articles on the WHSmiths LOTR stuff and thought I would write you about this. I just got a Woolworths Christmas Catalogue through the post (Woolworths is a British WalMart type store on a much smaller scale) and turned straight to the toys sections! Of course there was Frodo, Legolas, Gimili, Aragorn, Gandalf, Saruman, A Nazgul, Boromir and I think what must be Lurtz. I am sending a scan separately because I'm not sure it will work (I'm not the best with computers).

Just incase the scans don't get to you, I'll give a quick run down of what I see:

There are two stars saying NEW on two sets of pictures of different figures. The two largest are Frodo and Legolas ( I don't know if this is significant or not).

They are priced at 13.99 per twin pack...I guess that means you get two in one pack (duh).....and 7.99 for single figues (I'm working in pounds Sterling of course so I'm not sure what the $$$ would be [ probably cheaper than here cos everything is overpriced here]). There are two descriptions:

1. Lord of The Rings Twin Pack - Figures have unique action features. Age 5+ (...yay this includes me!)
2. Lord of The Rings Figure - 15cm fully poseable action figures. Age 5+.
