I have just unwittingly bought two LOTR figures on ebay. they are super poseable Boromir and super poseable Aragorn (Pelenor Fields). They are MOC and in very good condition on green FOTR cards but the cards are for other characters ( I forget which as i'm writing from work at this time).
Boromir has his sword in the scabbard and no other weapons. Aragorn has no weapons.

Any thoughts on this? Just interested on what anyone has to say.

WILL GET SOME PHOTOS OF THE PACKS UP SOON!

Thanks

I know of a few random figures that were packed on error cards that have been speculated to be bootleg or possible production samples. Personally I have no idea which is true but it seems they came from the same factory as the toybiz figures and I have heard reports that they were originally found in random discount shops in the UK. Quality is on par with the Toybiz figures and the card* quality is identical quality although most are misprinted (*EDIT: I mean the stickers are misprinted, the cards appear identical to the normal release).

Figures I can confirm are Minas Tirith Citadel guard, Prolouge Elven warrior and an Eowyn (with a weird head) all with army type knifes and packaged on a card with their image but the name Eomer on the sticker. All figures are missing all of their other accessories.

I believe I have seen other figures of this type with the correct name but can't confirm as i never bought them... but anyway thats all I have heard of. Your figures might not fit this type of figure but so you know what i'm talking about here is my Eowyn... or commando Eomer in drag if you will.

So check again to see if they have the same army knife.... if they do then they are from this random series and thats all I can help with. And if not I am sorry. Hope someone else knows more. :)

Thanks for the assistance, JaffleMaker I do indeed have the super poseable Aragorn and Boromir as you have pictured. I think I'll keep these even tho I did want the original correct packs.
Are these worth holding onto from a collectors point of view, or just red herrings?
