The Lord of the Rings is a near-perfect trilogy of action/adventure films and one of my favorites of all time.
As someone who hadn't read the books, Gandalf's apparent demise in the first film and his transformation into Galndalf the White in The Two Towers was one of the highlights of the films. And I certainly couldn't imagine a better actor than Ian McKellen to embody that character so perfectly.
Asmus Toys has at least five years of LOTR figures coming our way, and this is their first human character, as well as the first of the Fellowship. It will be interesting to see if they produce the main cast since the were already produced by Sideshow years ago, but I'm thinking, if they do, it will be a while before it happens.
Gandalf will arrive some time during Q2 of 2014 for a price of $169.99
