Lord of the Rings: Collector's Ed
About this deal
Players also have a chance to find surge foil versions of the Realms and Relics Box Toppers from the original Tales of Middle-earth set. There are also 100 serialized versions of each Realms and Relics card in a double rainbow foil treatment. These are the rarest cards in these boosters and will likely be pretty valuable, especially for cards like Ancient Tomb. Front inner flap and cover: ‘The West of Middle-earth at the End of the Third Age’ (1980 Unfinished Tales map, colourised)
The Lord Of The Rings: Book (1) One: The Fellowship Of The Ring; Book (2) Two: The Two Towers; Book (3) Three: The Return Of The King - Collector's Edition It’s wild to describe a box set containing 31 separate discs as “bare bones,” but that’s exactly what this “Middle-Earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition” set is. It has the movies, and that’s virtually it. Now, to be fair, you’re getting all the movies, both in 4K UHD and remastered on the standard Blu-ray format, including both the theatrical and the extended editions. It’s a little hard to visualize, so here’s a breakdown of what the set contains: Prefatory material includes ‘Note on the Text’ (emended 2004), by Douglas A. Anderson, and ‘Note on the 50th Anniversary Edition’ by Hammond and Scull.Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Limited Edition.

Prefatory material includes ‘Note on the Text’ (emended 1993) by Douglas A. Anderson. After looking at this new release, there doesn’t really seem to be a lot to it. It feels more to me like Wizards had too many ideas for Lord of the Rings card treatments to squeeze into a single set, so they made a new one specifically for the Brothers Hildebrandt and poster cards. The inclusion of new serialized cards seems less like an exciting opportunity than a cynical method to get players to fork over cash for the same cards they bought a few months ago. That said, I do like the design of the poster cards and the Brothers Hildebrandt art is all fantastic as is to be expected from them, but I’d advise buying the ones you want as singles. Colour plates tipped in between pp. 320‒21: ‘Leaves from the Book of Mazarbul’ (three 1947 illustrations, full colour).
