Diamond Select also chose April the 9th as the date to run a video event for fans to showcase their upcoming 2021 product. The 40-minute video featured Zach Oat (Marketing Supervisor) from Diamond as well as Diamond President Chuck Terceira, Product Developer Dev Gilmore and Product Manager Robert Yee.
The Lord of the Rings Select 7-inch figures are continuing past Series 3 and the Sauron BAF with a 4th wave containing Gandalf and Gollum. Gandalf is as seen in The Fellowship of the Ring as Gandalf the Grey, consistent with the other figures released to date. He is pictured with his staff and with Glamdring at his waist - although it is unclear if this a weapon accessory or a sculpted part of the belt.
Gollum is shown simply as a figure and there will need to be some further inclusions with Smeagol to ensure there is a perceived equal value of him vs the other figures in the line. This may be dealt with like the Orc with multiple head options.
This 4th Series is also not (as yet) associated with a BAF. It is down for a Winter 2021 release, but may well fall into early 2022.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
