To this end much painstaking research has gone into this range, both in costume and character appearance, so as to make and retain an authentic and consistent feel to the figures and above all to remain true to Tolkien's original vision of his strange and magical world.
The Mithril Classics series represent key personalities and generic types selected from Mithrills huge range of over 500 Middle-earths subjects. The LO and LT series are produced in an unlimited run. The LR series were produced in a limited edition of 2500 of each, when they are sold they are not produced again. The M series of miniatures were produced on a rolling basis. As new series were released, older series were retired. The Classics series is the core range which is continuously produced, and means that the most important figures like Gandalf, Bilbo and Aragorn are always available to the collector.
The "M" series and the Classics series are supplied undercoated ready to paint. The "LR", "LO" & "LT" series are supplied without undercoat to allow the finishing and assembling the figure to be completed before undercoating.
