Due soon are the Lord of the Ring’s Mystery Minis. Sold in blind boxes, there are several figures you can get. What I like about these are that it’s something I’m really into, so getting doubles wouldn’t be a bummer. If my buddy Rich was here I’d just give him the doubles, but also, since I like the books & movies, pretty much whichever one I get I’d like.
Gandalf I just need to get. I really like how the Hobbits look, as well as Gimli.
Exclusive to Hot Topic is the Uruk-Hai & Eowyn, the Nazgul Witch-King.
Barnes & Novle also has a few exclusives, such as the Silver or invisible Frodo, the Gold Gimlu, as well as the Galadriel when refusing the One Ring.
The best part of Barnes & Noble getting things like this is, when something like these DOESN’T sell, they eventually put them into a clearance bin. The discount on them starts low but can get to even 75%. Of course, it would be what doesn’t sell, but there’s always the chance some of these might not sell & they need to clear them out so you could find them pretty cheap.
