    I received my [mith]Chr1993[/mith] order today.

    Miniature is 100% identical to the old original one I have.

    Still, I noticed little ways to differenciate it:

    – base marking: new [mith]Chr1993[/mith] has little “S” engraved whereas the old one does not.
    – antique finsih is much nicer nowadays.
    – It is provided in a white box, as per other Xmas figures (no box for the old presents)
    – Mithril added a leaflet (with www link, funny as mithril on internet did not exist in 1993 :lol:)

    I will take a picture to illustrate.

    I have seen some letters on some references also…. is there a topic explaining them? are they a mistery?
    Congrats for that christmas miniature ;) and also curious to see that leaflet.

    Indeed, Master Mornedhel.

    Well, I received my “new” 1993 Isildur last Saturday and also compared it with the one I have from Chris. So, Master Milo is absolutely right. There’s this “S” below the base the old figure hasn’t got. Also the base of the new figure itself seems to be cut a bit more roughly below. – Ah,the leaflet … It made me laugh for quite a while because of that serious misprint on it (… the northern foothills of the Isildur … “). Well, maybe it’s just Irish humour.

    You are right about the base being rough. ;)

    Hello guys:

    I’m back on bussiness… Getting miniatures again!

    Yesterday I recieved the Isildur christmas 1993 miniature… Also MX600 LOTR ‘The Crack of Doom’ and 2014 Lord of the Rings ‘Lossoth™ Shaman Chieftain’

    But when I made the order last week, I also asked to get a refund of my still proccessing order (from 21/12/2012!!!) with the MS532 Lord of the Rings ‘Durin VI™, king of Khazad-dum™, as many of you know, it’s in “OUT OF STOCK” long time ago.

    Well, last week with the email about my current order processing, Joan answer this:

    Hi Jose , I have found an MS532 for you so I will send it with your order. Joan

    With my box, it comes a MS532, so I finally got it. But the mini it’s still out of order in web page.

    Maybe people that it’s still waiting for it (Mornedhel???, ddaines???) if you talk (and insist) with Joan at dispatch@princeaugust.ie can get any response.

    I am a really happy man now. Back to collect Mithril Miniatures and I get two minis I could never hope to get.

    Best Regards,

    Imisel

    I received my own Isildur today and I must set I am a bit upset,

    First, it does not have this “S” you are talking about but more importantly, the front of the helmet (in Isildur’s left arm) and the corner of the cape, below the same arm, are ‘flat smoothed’… as if the figurine had been too close to a heat source and had begun to melt… I compared with the original Isildur 83 (primed) I have and definitly the helm is not the same “flattened there.

    I just wanted to know if your helms had the same problem or if I was sent a bad casting or a damaged one… I will try to make pics soon to illustrate what I mean, but please let me know.

    I just can confirm what Milo said before. The “new” figures are exactly the same as the “old-ones” in each and every detail. The only difference I can tell is what Milo also witnessed. It’s the “S” at the base. – I’ll also try to take some pics to confirm what I said. It might be useful then to have pics taken from your side to find out about this.

    [imgz url=http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/2_dif_helm.jpg]http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/thumbs/2_dif_helm.jpg[/imgz]

    Honestly I think I should write to PA with this pic and ask for some explanation or a resend…
