Lord of the Rings 'Gondorian Ranger' action figure
Lord of the Rings fact: Royd Tolkien, great grandson of J R R Tolkien was cast as a Gondorian Ranger its rumoured that this figure is of that exact character. We must say, when we look at the sculpt and pictures of Royd himself, it's hard not to agree...
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."
