OldWargamer of the Xenite.org message ring reports, “I have just returned from a late night trip to our local Wal Mart. After getting the objects of my trip, I made a jaunt down the toy aisle. To my amazement, sitting there on a shelf were two packs of Lord of the Rings-Fellowship of the Ring action figures. One pack contained Merry, Pippen and a Moria Orc, the other Boromir and Lurtz. Yes, these are the Toy Biz figures and they look good.”
