    Hi

    May you help me on this figure. It’s nearly the same as Legolas LO5 but:
    The base is clearly not the same and the figure is primed;
    The date on the base is 199?, earlier than the 2001 LO5 date
    The hair and cape are a bit different;

    Thanks
    Thijl

    AH, but I need this one ! you would not sell it by any chance? :)

    it may belong to those series of 54mm prototypes… how did you get it? It seems there is no bow with it or you just did not include it in the picture?

    Master Gildor, it seems, there is a new entrance to add in MMP [ Uniques & Rarities Gallery ]

    Never seen nor heard about this miniature before.
    As Master Thingol wrote, highest fanatics (or Chris Tubb ?) may have the answer.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    I wonder if it could be part of ME collection?

    I asked the man, including the pictures, about this figurine… I’ll wait for his answer and I’ll relay it there

    I first thought it could be one of the forgotten ME… but the ME list was established and does not include Legolas :

    ME1: Gandalf,
    ME2: Aragorn,
    ME3: Frodo and Sam,
    ME4: Galadriel,
    ME5: Boromir in combat pose,
    ME6: Hithaeglir Orc

    maybe there were more, after all, there is this Saruman 54mm…. there are the three white prototypes I have (of which it appears Mornedhel also has)

    as I am quite interested in 54mm I would be really interested if you have any other 54mm Mornedhel :)

    oh by the way the date is clear it is not 199? it is Chris’99 so this figurine is from 1999, while the ME are from 1993 as far as i remember.

    Thanks for interest.

    This figure was not even in shelves, just in a box. I promise to take picture of blistered Mithril for the Wiki this week end when i found it in my “Mithril Master” box.
    I think I will go on to check all my figures I left in boxes as I have not enough place…. :D

    From what I see on picture, I agree Master Elf. So this maybe a [mith]LO5[/mith] pre-release or prototype ?

    On the base it is also written “mithril CS”.
    What the hell CS stands for ? :rolleyes::)

    in 1999, only the LR figurines were released, and the LO followed soon after LO5 was released in 2001 I think.

    since [mith]54Proto1[/mith] [mith]54Proto2[/mith] [mith]54Proto3[/mith] [mith]54Proto4[/mith] seem a bit different though. The base does not mention anything and they are elaborated base meant for display and promotion (big hexagonal bases or rune incrusted, like most Christmas figurines) This Legolas has the typical shape of the LT range though…which makes it from a different kind than the others

    CS could mean a lot of things “Character Series” would be quite fitting… but that’s only hypothetical

    The bow is exactly the same as for [mith]LO5[/mith]. It’s sometimes hard to remember how I get some Mithril (even the prototypes I am not sure).
    I am used to send for years belgian chocolates (famous praline) as Chrismas gift to Prince August full team in Cork to thanks them for their job. I think I received this one as a new year gift from them.
