Rant over Bridge Direct’s Hobbit Action Figure line
I’m a little upset over the Bridge Direct action figures. They just released the “2nd wave” of figures. The only new 6 inch figures are Azog and Radagast. Which I want, but where the hell is my Thranduil?
Oh, in the 3.75 inch pack with 4 figures I don’t need.
Really wishing Toy Biz would have stepped up and taken over the figure-making mantle like they did for LotR.
One of my favorite figures is the talking Sauron figure from Toy Biz. It’s Sideeshow Weta quality. Every little detail, down to the tiny One Ring, and his detachable fingers.
He’s not my only favorite. Each one of the 50+ figures from the LotR that I have, are special in their own right. With an ENORMOUS amount of detail. I had a monstrous collecting binge when these toys were around. So needless to say, I was uber excited to score some ‘Hobbit’ figures. The possibilities where just as endless!
The Bridge Direct toys just lack so much. On top of detailing, lack of articulation is the next big beef I have with them. Almost every joint from the Toy Biz figures, move.
But on top of all of that, my huge beef is the lack of diversity among their products. Toy Biz came out with EVERYONE. I’ve got 2 different Haldirs, two different Elronds, two different Arwens, FOUR different Legolas’ and Aragorns. On top of the fact I have back ground characters like a Haradrim soldier, an Easterling and two 2nd age elven warriors. They even had 2 separate packages for Gollum; one for him and one for Smeagol.
Man, those were some intense picking and choosing days, back when LotR came out. The vast amount of figures to choose from at each release date, bowled you over.
Now? Now we can’t even get a 6 inch Thranduil. You have to buy the $30 Mirkwood set with 4 other figures we already have. On top of the fact I’m not interested in the smaller figures. Give me my 6inch figurines.
Which aren’t even as big as the Toy Biz figures either. (See the Legolas’ together). Granted the Bridge Direct Legolas knives are a teensy bit nicer than the Toy Biz knives, that’s really it. I mean, the Bridge Direct Leggy is a cool figure, but his damned quiver won’t stay in his back, his face sculpt isn’t nearly as accurate as Toy Biz’s, and the details could have been pushed a little farther.
Just wanna know who dropped the ball with choosing Bridge Direct? They’ve also been less than helpful with answering questions on their FB page.
Atleast give us the diversity, Bridge Direct, that Toy Biz whooped you on. This is pathetic.
This. all of this.
#Imagine hanging around after school being grumpy and you walk along the street kicking little stones wishing something good would happen to you anything that’ll brighten your day #and then there’s this nice guy smiling and waving at you from the other side of the road and you are confused but you wave back and go on #and then you realize who that was and you stop rooted to the ground and nearly get a heartattack

I’ve seen this on my dash a few times, but I gotta reblog this one just for the comment.
If you follow my blog/s you would know that the last three or so weeks I have been seeing a therapist. A friend very dear to me sort of disappeared into nothingness, and I just.. stopped. I stopped being me. Like I was an antique music box that needed to be wound by key and my key was him.
sweety I’m so glad that the therapist has helped. So, so glad. But I know you’re not normal to me. To me you’re very special and I always love talking to you and being with you. And there is (at least to me) absolutely NO reason to apologises. You are you. And that is more than enough and I wouldn’t want you any other way. Love you dear.
LINDIR, GRUDGINGLY AT YOUR SERVICE.
SET SOME BOUNDARIES IN YOUR WORKPLACE, MAN. IF YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION IS JUST “DOING ANYTHING ELROND DOESN’T WANT TO DO” YOU ARE SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR THE WORST IN LIFE.
The recent news about the extended edition reminded me that there’s meant to be more disrespectful dwarves at Rivendell stuff in there and I really hope it’s like an anarchist version of their raid on Bag End’s pantry, with Lindir being run ragged by Mahal’s Lil’ Assholes and their vibrant array of behavioural problems.
"Master Dwarf, please, the celebrated tapestries of Imladris are not for wiping your boots on."
"Traditionally one writes on paper, not on walls, and with writing implements, not every weapon you own."
“WE AGREE TO YOUR TERMS AND MENU SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE LET THE FLAUTIST GO.”
"Earlier, when I clearly said, DO NOT LAUNDER YOUR SOILED UNDER-CLOTHES IN OUR FORBIDDEN SACRED SPRINGS, you nodded. You nodded as if you understood what I was saying. I do not think you did.”
While Bilbo sits in the corner, sympathizing, “Just wait ‘til you see what they’ve done to your bathrooms.”
Y’all know how much of a little bitch Lindir was in FotR right? Being all mean to Bilbo.
That’s why he wasn’t allowed the pretty purple-blue elf eyes. The bitch.
But seriously if he had to put up with all that shit from them wouldn’t you be a little bitchy at first?? Idk i think I may just like him too much XD

The only thing wrong with sex?
When it’s not consensual.
Because that’s not sex. That’s rape.
Reblogging again because this post is so important.
