Lord of the Rings 'Helm's Deep Gimli' Two Towers action figure
Helm's Deep Gimli shouldn't require much of an introduction. He's an Australian exclusive and there's rumoured to be only 500 that were made. If you consider all those that were opened, how many does that leave that remain in the box?

Please note that this Helm's Deep Gimli has shelf wear to the packaging, that can be seen via the photograph.
J R R Tolkien studied and taught at Oxford University, and while there he started a writing group called The Inklings, which counted among its members C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield (a little known fact is that here at OCC, we can be sometimes be spotted in 'The Eagle and Child', chosen and preferred pub of the Inklings, enjoying a pint of fine ale, sitting in the EXACT spot where Tolkien himself used to sit).
It was also at Oxford, while grading a paper, that he spontaneously wrote a short line about "a hobbit."
