Are they coming to other retailers?

Im assuming they will-- just not sure when (maybe with the Jan resets)-- Target just got the Nick figures which have been at TRU for over 2 months--

This seems to be the trend lately. TRU gets stuff around 2 months before the others stores (and some stores have been getting exclusive lines)-- maybe they have cut a deal with the other companies other than lego.

TRU almost always gets Lego sets first.

And I remember getting the Iron Man 2 figures there well before they showed up anywhere else.

K-mart is carrying the line though I've not seen any at my local stores yet. I believe their prices are the lowest too - 7.99 for 3.75" singles (not sure on the other prices).

I thought TRU might have a sale on Hobbit toys this week but have not heard about any.

The warg set is very nice. That's the only one I've gotten thus far.

Got almost all of the figures released so far, and I'm really liking them. (Thanks again to fball13z!)

Does the two pack Legolas come with an arrow as pictured on the packaging?

Is it just me or does this line seem like a dud. Are kids just not responding to it the way collectors are?

Well I only grabbed Gandalf-- I had the chick elf in my hand once (both sizes) but decided against it-- For some reason I just dont care about Tolkien figures (unless they were to do Rankin and Bass versions)

Kids only seem to want smart phones and to play Minecraft these days.

I think the line is awesome (I have all the little guys) and really enjoyed the movie.

I don't know . . .

. . . It's not like the first wave was knocking them dead retail wise.

I wonder if we will actually see these in stores?

It looks like these new figures are branded "Desolation of Smaug." So it seems we only get 1 wave per movie.

Went into local KMart-- everything was on clearance- at 50% off-- they had one of those full pallet displays- (complete with the 3-3/4 Singles, 2 packs and Wargs, and the 6" figures--- not a single thing had been bought from it-- (another Kmart has had the same display since before Christmas- it is still completely full as well- although those werent marked clearance yet...) Id say failure at retail is an understatement..
