The hour of darkness has come upon our world, as it did in the end of the Third age of Middle earth. We must do something to fight this malice that lives in the air we breath, this malice that is used without mercy to its creator. Stand up, and unite!

Well, it was inevitable, I supose. Dont' worry. It'll just be a fad for a while and then we can go back to reading in peace.

But I still can't believe it. Crap!

When you think about it, most of those (the above merchandise) will be sold to little kids (i.e. the kid in the third picture). There will be a lot less little kids who've read LotR, so they will have absolutely no idea how much was changed. They must somehow be shown the truth

A light & sound Sting sword? :( That is definately the most depressing thing I've seen this week.

On a lighter note that was my 200th post. :D Now I feel a little better.

Just as long as they don't make and sell Turin's sword. We'd have a bunch of dead kids on our hands courtesy of a talking, blood-thirsty sword.

Yeah...well, wait till you see the Frodo Fries and the "Onion Ring to rule them all", let alone the Green Gollum mint shakes. Yeah, it's gonna be like that, you won't be able to swing a dead cat in KayBee Toys without hitting some bastardization of the Lord of the Rings. New Line wants to make their money back on the first film so that everything them make on the next two is pure profit.

What *I* want to see is a Big Flaming Eye doing ads for ClearEyes...that would rule. *Snicker* You just have a big C.G. eyeball and Ben Stein's voice...

I hope I don’t get flamed for this, but I’m actually looking forward to the action figures. Of course, the moment I get them home, I’m repainting the hair of Boromir, Legolas, Sam, Merry, and Aragorn, but other than that... ;)
