    Here I chose to open a thread about Galadriel figures … as there are many.
    Some of them are quite rare by now .
    Many years ago Chris Tubb always had her as one of the first figures of some series.
    My intention about this thread is trying to collect all you can find about her. That could be photos or information about certain releases of any Galadriel figure.
    Please feel free to provide any pics or information to this thread.
    I will try to see through it and hopefully in the Ent (sorry) end may be able to provide a “history” of Galadriels.
    Please help !

    This is an unprimed version of MS423A its origins are explained in the database – 32mm figure.

    Sorry I couldn’t get a decent image of the base with the reference number, but it was handed to me personally by The Man.

    Ms423A was originally thought of to introduce the the Fellowship-Range.

    Later on it was decided that Aragorn and the Palanthir should start the new idea of a ‘Mithril-Fellowship’. That’s why the Lady once got lost and was never produced.

    Well here is M1[imgz url=http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/21_pict0714.jpg]http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/thumbs/21_pict0714.jpg[/imgz]
    I think some people incorrectly assume that there are variants of this figure based on the position of the arm. Not so…due to the lead content it can easily be bent into another position! Still, a fine figure and a stand out from the very first series!

    Thank you for your comment about a variant of the M1. That’s exactly what I wanted to point out in the forgotten discussion about this figure.
    Ahem, I wish I could be able to produce such layers of colours as you do.

    A painted lady, MA1[imgz url=http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/21_pict0679.jpg]http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/thumbs/21_pict0679.jpg[/imgz]
    And thanks for your words, kind master tree. Perhaps it’s time to open a ‘painting tips’ thread. The antique finish is rare as is the base shape variant. It would be a shame to stain them with paint!

    There’s a painting tips thread over in the gallery. It’s down a ways, but I’ve asked Gildor to sticky it when he gets a chance. Definitely feel free to add any tips you can think of Ken! :)

    I feel the same about some limits of painting some Mithrils, Ken. I also would never dare to paint the Galadriel Christmas figure (the one with the different base) or those lads of Saruman’s army for example.
    Well, Mistress Wendy I really do appreciate your entries about painting tips. Maybe we should have a new thread especially for those matters. I think a fine place for that is the Gallery you take care of.

    Here are some Galadriel impressions from my collection: MA-1 Antique, MS423A Primed, LO-10 Antique. :)

    you could add a M1 and a Christmas 92 Galadriel to complete the family :)

    I wish I could do the same with Aragorn….. [mith]ME2[/mith] [mith]Chr1988[/mith] [mith]MS423[/mith]

    Well, the Christmas 92 Galadriel is here …

    Oh by the way, protozeus, having had a closer look at your pic I have to tell that the LO-10 has no “antique finish”. You just have to compare the surface of the figure with the one on the left in your photo; she’s got “antique finish” and is one of the rarest Galadriels. The LO-series were never primed so their surface is a bit silvery-shiny but that is absolutely different from “antique finish”.
    The LO-10 was produced after her smaller sister (LR9 – Galadriel, bearer of Nenya) was released in the ‘Early Ringbearer’ release which was the second series of the LR-range. Besides the LO-10 figure consists of two parts, the figure itself and the base. They can be clearly distinguished from the old MA1 and M1 … ahem … because of the flatter bosom, so to say.
    The Christmas 1992 Galadriel is slightly taller than the MA1-releases, because the oval base was put onto an hexagon-base which in some years was typical of Christmas figures.
