Lord of the Rings 'Aragorn' action figure
Aragorn, son of Arathorn is everyone's favourite Dúnedain.
He is the thirty-ninth male descent from Isildur. Isildur had four sons, Elendur, Aratan, and Ciryon who died when Isildur were ambushed at the Gladden Fields, and Valandil, too young to go to war, who stayed at Imladris...
But now we're getting very bookish, so we'll stop right there and focus on the action figure on offer: Aragorn comes complete with Anduril, and many other accessories, and therefore ready to dispatch many a pesky orc or uruk hai.
Produced by Toybiz in 2002, these figures feature fantastic articulation, detailing and attractive packaging, and therefore are a must for fans of the trilogy. Amen.
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."
