Aragorn as Strider the Ranger

Sideshow Toys has introduced their first character from their 12-inch Lord of the Rings line.  Aragorn as Strider the Ranger is currently up for pre-order.  If you have seen the films, you realize that this is Aragorn from the first flick - The Fellowship of the Ring.  It's an amazing likeness of Viggo Mortensen.  Sideshow has raised their prices a little for this line, as Aragorn is selling for $64.99.

The many heroic and indelible characters who populated The Lord of the Rings film series, are also among the most familiar and cherished images in Hollywood history. Sideshow Collectibles, a specialty manufacturer of iconic television and film collectibles, in association with New Line Cinema, is currently producing a line of Lord of the Rings Premium Format figures. This 1:4 scale figure line follows a very successful Lord of the Rings collectibles line, created when Sideshow Collectibles partnered with award winner effects studio, WETA workshop, to produce more than 180 high-end, collectable statues, busts, and helms. Sideshow Collectibles has worked closely in the past with New Line Cinema on licensed 12-inch figures from New Line's House of Horror, including such films as Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And, starting in second-quarter 2006, Sideshow Collectible's own Lord of the Rings range will expand to include 12-inch figures from the landmark film series.
