Lord of the Rings: 1980's Releases - Alternative Figures - Collectors Guide
Citadel produced a significant number of alternative figures for many of the original mid 1980s Lord of the Rings ME range, many of which are uncatalogued. These included Orcs, Elves, Dwarves and Deadmen of Dunharrow. Many of the figures shown here were later rolled into various Warhammer ranges once the LOTR License was lost. Later castings have the LOTR-specific information on their slotta tabs obliterated.
