    Hi there everybody

    I am trying to rebuild an index of all known variants in the mithril range… I noticed my own data is far from complete and it requires some update.

    Besides MX variants which are recent and referenced, I am talking of “old” variants rather

    things like the MW337 B1,  or the M86 bear with right paw, or M146 Nazgul with separated rider….

    Zoetrop had made a list back in time, (appearing in the 2009 catalog) but itself is incomplete too… If you can help me track them all down along with pics, I could update both the database AND the gallery with them all

    Master elf, I think Gandalf variant never existed apart from Mithril Fellowship Book number one.

    I Wonder if there might be also M262 Eomer which either come seperated from his Horse or not?

    well, as of today I managed to get my hands on M86, M124, M138, M146, M260 variants and all the MX. I think I only miss the MW337 horse rider but this one may be harder…

    I think you are right Milo, the M125 does not exist except on the leaflets.

    As for the Mouth of Sauron, I have to check if I got one with single head … don’t remember…

    Congratulations Gildor! That seems quite a feat.
