Rumored, teased, unconfirmed, myth, legend… this is a list of those models we’ve got very little info on, but hope to see soon. For example, the Lord of the Rings location models teased over a year ago. I’ve decided to create this post, and update it as needed, so we don’t lose track of, or forget these models. In addition to the rumored models, I’ll be listing exclusives that haven’t been released yet. Basically, this post will endeavor to contain a list of unreleased models that are not in the Coming Soon section of Metal Earth’s website.
Star Wars Full Body Figures?
Sounds like we may be getting at least three full body Star Wars characters (full body in the style of the Black Panther model). So far Darth Vader and Boba Fett have been confirmed to be “in the works,” no word on the identity of the third. The above picture is not of the models themselves, but some pictures of the characters that I threw together (and distorted) to represent the models until such time as we get actual photographic evidence.
Lord of the Rings Locations/Architecture
Posted by @metalearth_official to Instagram way back on July 21st, 2018, these gorgeous fictional architecture / locations from Middle Earth are taking forever for any news updates. Looking closely at the photos posted, these appear to be constructed from a high-weight paper, possibly card-stock, solidifying their status as prototypes. I’m really hoping that the delay is because they’re taking my advice and adding a Helm’s Deep model. I can dream, right? The prototypes include Rivendell/Imladris, Minas Tirith, Orthanc and Barad-dûr.
That’s all Folks!
That’s all I know about, for now. I’ll try to keep this up to date, though, just like my Exclusives post. Special thanks to AnimateOrange for suggesting the idea of adding this reference post!
