Hi, I was looking at your pre-orders for Legolas/Gimli/Gandalf Maquettes and had an idea. Unlike a lot of previous LOTR items that sell out very quickly, why don’t you do more characters that haven’t been done that collectors would love to see made? For instance, I can’t believe that your not even considering statues like Haldir/Denethor/Skully, and with nothing of Gondorians or Rohirrims. What about Wargs riders and any other riders? I would just like an answer as to why not? Are you prejudice against such statues?
We are, in fact, considering MANY characters for the LOTR statue line! Especially the Rohirrim dudes, we’ll be taking a ride with them at some point. We start off new lines with strong, well known characters, so that the line can seed and sprout and grow, and have the best shot at longevity.

Also, a fair warning: Questions that ask, “Will you be doing/Why don’t you do [insert license or character name]?” may never be answered. We’re happy to drop hints when we can, but we sometimes cannot answer direct questions about what we’re planning in the future for a variety of reasons, which include (but are not limited to) licensing, production, artistic contracts, and ever-changing schedules and projected release dates. Please feel free to use the form for all these sorts of questions or quasi-suggestions, but PLEASE don’t take offense if when we don’t answer to your full satisfaction… or don’t answer at all – it’s not personal, we promise!
