No thread other than the preliminary discussion one on the series itself.
I'm being pessimistic and believe they are going to butcher Tolkien (much in the same fashion as Wheel of Time), and if so, that will automatically kill any interest whatsoever in any replicas... but we'll see.
As for a license, I'm pretty sure it would have to be a brand new thing. Remember, the movie license belongs to Warner Brothers, and this new series is an Amazon production. Two completely different things.
I also distrust very much. The few things that have been leaked give me a bad feeling... for now the only good news I've seen so far is the "confirmation" in twitter that behind the soundtrack is Howard Shore again... I hope so don't be a fake new.
And after seeing Wheel of Time, even worse sensations, as you comment. Because even if the series entertained me, I didn't love it, I didn't find it believable. And I'm not saying this because of the adaptation, because I haven't read the books and I can't judge what changes they've made. I say this because there was always something in the scene that took me out of fiction. Especially the clothes without beliable weartering and with too modern fabrics... too current haircuts and makeup. I think I've seen more believable cosplays.
But well, before the original trilogy was released, when so little was known about the movies as about the series now, I also had my fears and mistrust. But as good news leaked out, my hopeful grew.
Hopefully my gut is wrong this time too.
I hope I love it and have replicas to buy from the series too.
