Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

Nice thinking! I like this outline. This is good because it also gives us some more cards to focus on in our first "wave" of working on designs,

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

M only thought are:
Should we hold off on Durins Bane for a special release?
Do standard Orcs have much organization, I'm sure they're there somewhere, but I don't actually remember Lieutenants in Fellowship?
I'd like to work Galadriel in there in place of either of the above. Actually Arwen could probably wait until Aragorn is done being Strider.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

From what I recall Orcs are organized into tribes mostly, I'd have to try and did for names of commanders but we can honestly take license with that as we know that they had to exist. Forces cannot exist without organization of some kind, we could even delve through the games to find some stuff if we needed to.

Galadriel is going to be a boss unit, she's effectively one of (if not THE) most powerful magical entities on Middle Earth. Arwen could come at some point, I'd be cool with that. We also need Glorifindel and the characters that were left out of the movie but actually did things that were attributed to Arwen

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

There was some kind of "orc chieftan" or orc leader (I don't remember the phrase Tolkien used) in Moria who stabbed Frodo - that's what I was going for with "Orc Leutenant".

Regarding the other Elves, I was thinking about having another pack of "Heroes of Rivendel" w/ Arwen, Glorfindel, Eladan, & Elrohir. I don't think Glorfindel is crucial enough to include in the 1st 30 figures personally.

Galadriel was a tough exclusion, but similarly to the above I was thinking about having a pack of elves from Lorien (or maybe "Other high elves", with her & Cirden, maybe some more?).

I like the idea of including Durin's Bane in MS1 because I think it's nice to include one huge figure with eash MS (Smaug w/ The Hobbit likely) because it fits how they released classic scape, and it seems fitting to include Durin's Bane with the rest of the Moria figures.

I've added these new figures to the list as 'possibilities' though for the MS, pending more discussion.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

I'm going to go through the story linearly and pull as many figures as I can and place them in initial "sets" that mirror the timeline of books.

These aren't intended to be final or anywhere near it - mostly I think it is helpful to have an enumerated list of all the figures we want and then we can adjust that list by release as we go / make decisions.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

Ok, I added all the figures I could think of for the 3 LotR books in sets that are (mostly) chronological. Please point out any figures that I missed.

This should at least give us a good starting point.

At some point I'll do the same for the Hobbit as well.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

This seems like a great starting point! I'm sure it'll get tinkered with as time goes on, but the best plans always are!
Having the Balrog in the Master set could potentially be problematic. I like the idea, personally, but it does mean we'll be releasing something near the top end of the power level right at the get go, so I think we'll have to be very careful with point costs there, but I'm sure it'll work out.

Re: Release Schedule (Future Planning)

I added characters from The Hobbit (MS2 + Wave 5) and re-grouped the individual Packs less by timeline and more by geography so I could get exactly 4 packs into each wave like classic scape had.
