I enjoyed reading that so much!! Thank you.

That was fantastic, thank you!

Thank you! Oh, I remember how I cherished that magazine then!

Those were the days. :-)

oh, that's wonderful. Thank you so much, i was not aware that Empire had done this (5 years ago i would have been badgering them, wanting to know why it was not in at my local store!)

Ambree, do you have any of the magazines that were made especially for the fan club while the movies were being released? They were pretty wonderful, too.....

You're welcome. :-)
No, I don't. I didn't watch the films until 2010, so I missed all the early furore. Serves me right for wanting to stick with the book.

ah, but if there hadn't been a book, there wouldn't have been films.......

I'll check around, see if there are extras in my band of merry friends (or folks who simply don't want their any longer, ya never know)

there are a lot of them on ebay and they are pretty cheap http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xlord+of+the+rings+fanclub+magazines.TRS0&_nkw=lord+of+the+rings+fanclub+magazines&_sacat=0

here is an ended listing, but one that shows every issue http://www.ebay.com/itm/390718201774

(other than the mags, what else was cool was that you got a set of lithographs, and of course your name in the credits......but i liked the lithos best, I think)

I once saw a marvelous set of FOTR figurines in one of the famous "cube houses" in Rotterdam that is now a museum (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cube_house). I would love to have my own miniature Frodo and, perhaps, a Gandalf. Time to search the internet for a bargain. :-)

how cool are those houses!

what sort of figurines did you see? ones from 'our' movies? or stuff like this? (Pippin is adorable, not sure about any of the others): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lord-of-the-Rings-Fellowship-Complete-Set-Danbury-Mint-lot-of-9-Figures-LOTR-/302205908815?hash=item465ce0374f:g:~ykAAOSw5cNYRff2

(I have a wonderful Frodo from Royal Doulton that I got on ebay about 12 years ago.....and then a friend gave me the Gollum from the same set (oooooo). She got him at a flea market! There is also a charming (!) Smaug but I've never been able to find him.......

That was wonderful, thank you soooo much, my dear!

You're welcome, Julchen. :-)
