Um . . . Aragorn?

As most of you know, I am a big fan of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, warts and all. A large part of this is because I've also seen Ralph Bakshi's Lord of the Rings, which, admittedly, is its own special brand of crack-a-licious fun, but which has more . . . significant warts than Jackson's remake.

Now, you may ask: What could possibly improve upon the already psychedelic nature of Bakshi's Lord of the Rings, other than a shortcut to some very special mushrooms? Wonder no more! I have just learned that there were tie-in action figures for this movie! Yes!

Feast your eyes upon a completely random assortment of horses, Hobbits, Ringwraiths, Gandalf the -- well, he claims it's Grey, but it really looks Blue to me, Gollum, and . . . Aragorn, son of Arathorn, known as Estel and Thorongil, the Dúnadan, Strider, Longshanks, and Wingfoot, reigning King of Gondor, Elessar Telcontar, Envinyatar . . . and a snappy dresser!
