Faramir (Sword Weilding) Review

 
 
Faramir (Sword Weilding)
Lord of the Rings - Two Towers (Toy Biz) - Series 1
The younger brother of Boromir and supposed heir to the throne of Gondor, Faramir was a skilled warrior.

As most basic LOTR figures, Faramir stands at about 6 inches. He bears two weapons, a sword with sheath and a longbow with quiver and several arrows. He also has a special feature, a lever on his back, when pulled this lever causes him to swing his right arm up and down, allowing for sword swining action. Sadly, Faramir is one of those figures whose head looks very little like its movie counterpart. His head looks dumb, like hes lost. His hair is also the wrong color, its to dark while in the movie he had more blonde. The other bad thing is his sword. It comes in his right hand, prepacked. This is a bad thing because his right hand is like a rock, you CANNOT move the thing and the way the sword is made you cant just yank it out. Even worse, when attempting to pull the sword out, it broke easily so now I have Faramir with just a bow, which all and all is better quality then most of the other LOTR bows.

Paint job is your replica movie job. He bears the exact Ranger clothes he was wearing in the Two Towers movie. Its basically olive green with the white tree emblem across the chest and an olive green cloak. His quiver and bow are bow brown. Arrows are brown with silver tips and green feathers. Th sword was your typical silver color.

I can say that the articulation remained good here. he sports articulation at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, thighs, knees and feet.

A good figure but I have to take points off for the crappy sword+hand and the dopey looking head.

The Witch King(wraith with all the armor and a giant spiked mace)? Ya I got him from one of my Kmarts a while back. He''s a cool figure with his big fancy mace and armor.
I still need to do a review on him and my Haradriam Warrior.

Ack, I don''t even remember now. It was Legolas, Aragorn, Gimli, The red elf guy, and I think someone else, not sure...maybe it was Gandalf but I don''t think so. Maybe a Boromir? I think it was the bearded king guy, Eomer''s father? Maybe it only came with 4 figures

Hey Doc, what all came in the Helm''s Deep pack?
I only remember seeing Legolas and Aragorn in it the once or twice I saw it in stores...

I got mine for Christmas a couple of years back, cant rmemeber if I picked him out or someone else did. Through all the LOTR figures browsing I never came across many so he might be hard to find. I smack myself for starting to buy the LOTR figures late, I missed the entire first wave of the Fellowship of the Rings and missed the Lurtz vs Boromir combo pack, thing runs for over $30 now...

Cool, now I want one of these guys, is he hard to get?

He''s about 6 1/4 inches at full height, one thing I forgot to mention in the review is that his arm swing lever is actually under his cloak(which is not removable) so you cant see it, a nice way to hide the small stuff.
Edit: He''s got five arrows
