So Swordsman let us know! PLEASE!!!!! You said it would be released but

I haven't seen a picture of saurons helm besides of the movie, could someone post a picture of it? I have seen UC's excellent work on saurons guanlet though, that looks like a really great piece but i probably won't be able to buy it:( .

Well im as eager as everybody else about these dates.

Think UC is a bit cruel and foolish not to let us customers know about the progress.....cmon were dyin for these stuff.

I have both the helmet of sauron and his gauntlet on pre order......
and i wanna have em on my mantle pice faster than you can say Gollum Gollum.

And UC hmmmm a Mithril shirt would be a definite collerctors item!!!

Sorry to disappoint, but since it appears you didn't know, UC has already stated that they will make no armour (excluding the gauntlet for the Sauron collection). This is pretty sensible, since armour is not in their line of work, they are called United "Cutlery" afterall ;)

Armor & Costumes = Museum Replicas.

....and yes, Armor includes Mithril....
They officially have the rights to tool around with it and see what happens...
And they will.

As far as I know,United doesn't give concrete release dates,at least,not to the public.All they do is say the time in which the date is,this case being,Fall 2004.Just hang on everyone,I'm sure will start seeing them sometime in October.I hope.

Um, the helms and shields are armour too

That is a fair point, but the armour people want to see is the armour i was talking about, things such as Sauron's and Aragorn's full body armour. I apologise, i should have been clearer first time around.

Why oh why are we yet to receive an official release date for Sauron's helm?? I had hoped that Mr Bates would shed some light on this when he gave us all that delightful info on what to expect in the future LOTR line, but he never did :(
It is less than half a month until October is upon us, can we expect it then? Or even later??

I got an email a while ago now, an official email froma friend of mine.
Generally if an item has a UC Number its going to be made.

In it stated; "MYTHRIL (shirt of Frodo)!!!!! UC1399 suggested retail $498.99 (may be limited edition, not sure yet)."

Unknown date of release

I restored your post about the mythril shirt because even though United has said they will not make this I feel it is a subject that can be discussed. And there is nothing wrong with that. OF course this is only my opinion, but I feel that they do have intentions on making this product, for various reasons. I just feel that when we announced it's release months ago it was just to early, or did not fit into there plans on letting fans know they are going to make this item. LIke I said I have a few reasons I am basing my opinion on this but I have absolutly nothing solid....yet!

But officially everyone at United says that this is not going to be an item in the series of adult collectibles. And that is how it "officially" stands at this point in time.

Hopefully, with all the rumors floating around here, I think people should be seeing their helmets by the end of this month. REMEMBER I said hopefully;)

Sorry guys for the delay in responding, however I have been really busy latly. But the main reason I have not announced any thing on when the helms will be in is because we are not certian yet. We have been told by our field representitive that the helm is due to be here anyday. So anyone who has placed orders with the "unmentionable site" :D should be getting your notices very soon.

Yes, I saw them. Amazing detail. It looks even better than thier promotion pic. I look forward to hearing from the "unmentionable site". I can't wait to see this in my room.:D Oh, and I like how they chose a black box for the Sauron collection. Its fitting for the Dark Lord.

YES!! I ordered from the "unmentionable" site :D This is probably the most excited i have ever been! (maybe i need to get out more) Who cares though, i just can't wait for my Helm!!
