Interesting, though I suppose mostly expected. I only just noticed this though:

which grabs my attention a bit.

I hope Stephen Fry signs, and would be nice to see Evangeline Lilly and Ian McKellen too, though I have their autographs from elsewhere.

I'm not really collecting these sets (preordered a box of the first one, before it was $100 a box) but I would be interested in an autograph card from Luke Evans. And if they are doing multiple designs, how about landscape to match my Topps LOTR sets Wink

If for some reason you cannot get an Evans signed card. He is a very good signer ttm. He signed my custom "Hobbit" card and recently signed a "Dracula Untold" photo for my son.

Ah excellent, they've updated with a few more since last I checked, including Stephen Fry/Master of Lake-town! More or less the only autograph I was looking for from this Big Grin

Other new additions seem to be Ken Stott/Balin and Jeffrey Thomas/Thror

They've added Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, and Andy Serkis as Second Unit Director (?).

Also, it's criminal that it looks like the boxes will only contain one autograph and nothing else. Again.

Manu Bennett also added.

Lots of repeats, but at least it's another shot at Freeman and Armitage.
