Diamond Select Toys Gollum from Lord of the Rings

Wave 4 of the Diamond Select Lord of the Rings figures has been a moving feast since it was first shown in February 2021 with a Gandalf the Grey figure displayed alongside a Gollum.

Since that point, the Gandalf figure has remained constant, but soon after we were told Gollum was not in wave 4 and was being replaced by the Uruk Hai Orc figure. Gollum was then announced as an SDCC exclusive this Summer complete with his raft and an invisible version of Frodo - but limited in numbers. DST said this was the only way to get Gollum.

Roll on a little and Diamond then said Gollum was being packed with Gandalf in wave 4, this was retracted as originally a static Gollum was planned as an accessory and then withdrawn so an articulated version could be done.

And in a new twist seems he is not and we have a Deluxe release of him instead, meaning the SDCC version is not the only way to get Gollum - but is the only way to get the boat and the invisible Frodo (and possibly some accessories).

The deluxe Gollum features the figure plus three head options. He is packed with a rock accessory which is slightly generic but looks most like the one from his cave under the Goblin City - which if I am being pedantic makes this a release from The Hobbit trilogy and not LOTR. The blurb also talks about some specific character accessories - these may or may not be the fish he comes within the deluxe set, or the alternative hand holding the One Ring.

Deluxe Gollum is due for release in November 2021.

Gollum gets the deluxe treatment in this new action figure release! Based on his appearance in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Gollum comes packaged with multiple interchangeable heads, a rock formation to climb on, plus other bonus character accessories! Gollum features 16 points of articulation, detailed sculpting and paint, and comes packaged in a full-color window box. Designed by Eamon O'Donoghue, sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!

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...
