Diamond Select Toys Lord of the Rings SDCC 2021 set of Gollum and Frodo

“What has it got in its pocketses?"

The new Lord of the Rings line from Diamond Select will have an exclusive box set this Summer. The SDCC 2021 Exclusive will feature a version of the upcoming Gollum figure, along with his handmade bone and skin boat. Gollum will feature two head options and will also come with a fish accessory. There is also an alternative right hand, sculpted holding "the precious" - the One Ring.

He will be joined in the pack by a translucent Frodo, as though turned invisible by the One Ring. Frodo will feature a translucent Sting sword with a working scabbard. The set will be packed in a display box that opens like a book (not yet pictured).

This set does have a little bit of a context issue in that Gollum and his boat are from The Hobbit, while Frodo is obviously from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Lord of the Rings Exclusive pack is now being sold via Gentle Giant and Previews stockists in the absence of an SDCC show this year due to the Covid pandemic. It is limited to 4000 pieces and can be ordered now for a Summer 2021 release.

What has it gots in its pocketses? This exclusive two-pack of Lord of the Rings action figures lets the cat out of the bag, showing Frodo in his completely invisible mode, wearing the one Ring of Sauron. Standing right next to him is Gollum, who looks pretty angry about someone stealing his “precious.” Each 4-inch action figure features multiple points of articulation, as well as detailed sculpting and paint applications. Limited to only 4,000 pieces, the pair comes packaged in replica of an opening book and includes a scale replica of Gollum's handmade boat. 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...
