The new plaques are going to stand out like a sore thumb & i would be duplicating pieces i already own....

Dilemma!

I kinda like the new plaques but I agree they wont blend in well with the older ones. You'd need a separate wall to display them on. You can pretty much guarantee Glamdring and Sting as exactly the same as the previous releases too.

I'm actually hoping that its an all new sting, adult sized rather than hobbit sized... but I'm not gonna hold my breath on that.

it deffo looks new, the pattern on the blade is different and the silver on the hilt looks lumpy rather than just painted on like the UC one.

Ah turns out those Glamdring and Sting swords are actually from the Noble Collection. Time to start saving some pennies.

You're best off asking Los for the ETA mate,

A matter of weeks according to other sites, and they're taking pre-orders now too. No idea yet if B-UK is going to stock the Noble swords though.

I also see another site claims there will be two Orcrists, one by UC the other by Noble. Be interesting to see which one is best.

On this subject I always regret never buying the Noble version of Herugrim. It looked so much better than the UC version...

I must say, the two hammers are cracking, are they full sized or miniatures?

Is that a subtle way of telling me they're miniatures? Lol
