PostSubject: Does anyone else collect Knickerbocker's 1979 Lord of The Rings figures ?   Tue Jul 30, 2013 6:40 pm

Here's another one of my collections - The 1979 Lord of the Rings figures that were made by Knickerbocker . It's a small set but they are tough to come by complete and in good condition - the entire line was only 6 figures and 2 horses .

I only have 4 figures and its taken me over 2 years to get them for a cheap enough price that I could afford to buy them . My Ringwraith is complete but I am missing swords for both Frodo and Sam . Gollum didn't come with accessories so he is by far the easiest and cheapest to get in the line .










Here is a pic of what the Frodo and Sams swords look like ...



if by some miricle you have one or ever happen to see one of the swords for sell please let me know What a Face 


here's a couple links with some more background info on the figure line if your interested ...

Thanks Guys !!! Glad you like them Very Happy 

here are pics of Frodos Horse and Ringwraiths Charger - hopefully someday I will come across them somewhere for a price I can afford to pay Very Happy 




the horses are by far the hardest pieces to get in the line - a complete Ringwraith Charger usually sells in the $300 to $600 range affraid 

here is a pic of what the packages look like ...



Thanks for the link Chopper cheers 

I have seen that Aragorn and have been thinking about him thinking 

I am watching a lot of accessories that has a sword and scabbard for Aragorn - if I win it I will probably buy the figure in that link Very Happy

James, I went into sticker shock this morning at the Ontario Collectors Con. I saw a couple of complete Frodo and Sam with their swords, but I didn't have enough cash on me to pick them up for you. affraid

very cool man - how much were they asking ?

If a person could get a complete Sam or Frodo for under a $100 each it is a bargain - their swords are extremely hard to find Mad

Hell I would pay $50 for a sword and I am a cheap ass bastard lol!

They had more than a couple.  They were asking $125 for each of the incompete ones without the swords, and I think it was around $325 for the complete Frodo and Sam with their swords as a pair.
