If you are a Lord of the Rings fan and collect 12 inch action figures, chances are that you have probably heard of Asmus Toys by now. Last year they revealed that they have the 1/6 scale license for Lord of the Rings figures, and this year they announced that 2014 is going to be the year of LOTR as Asmus Toys. For 2014 Asmus said that they are going to be making a dozen sixth scale figures. The first figure to make his 2014 debut is going to be the Asmus Toys Mordor Orc Lieutenant Guritz sixth scale figure.
In LOTR: Return of the King, the Mordor Orc Lieutenant is only briefly shown as the right hand man of Gothmog, the orc that is second in command to the Witch King. Hardcore Lord of the Rings fans probably know that in the movie script the Mordor Orc Lieutenant is given the name Guritz, but he’s such a minor character that many people don’t know his name. During the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, Guritz suffers a death-blow from the sharp blade of Gimli’s axe.
Asmus Toys’ latest figure announcement of the Mordor Orc Lieutenant Guritz sixth scale figure has really pleased the early collectors of this new 12 inch figure line. He comes with an incredible portrait, interchangeable hands, a finely tailored costume, a weapon, and a figure stand.
Look for Guritz to arrive on your shelf in the 2nd quarter of 2014 for about $130.
