Contents

In addition to giving an overview on collecting and the various movies, including a general preview of the as-of-then upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the book also covers licensed products from the 1970s onward, including books, calendars, games, and collectibles from various companies (Kinder Surprise, Mithril Miniatures, Sideshow-WETA Collectibles).
