A pair of Little Portrait sets to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.  It’s technically not due until December, but I couldn’t wait - have had LOTR on my to-do list for years.  My Dad is a massive fan of the books and for three years across the early 00s these films provided an opportunity to bond.  He’s been known on occaision, when my Mum has gone out for the day, to nail the Extended Editions in one long stretch.  He’s hardcore.

I found it extremely difficult whittling it down to two sets of 12 - I knew I needed the Fellowship in there, but after that there were a lot of good-guy (and morally-ambiguous) characters I had to miss off, Galadriel and Elrond in particular.  It’s a shame, but I’m happy with the choices made.
