Quoted from DeathHimself:
Looks like Sam, Pippin and Merry got the axe lol.
Quoted from PinMonk:
I like the coloring and general composition of yours better (I never realized how GREEN the playfield art was through the whole thing), but the party montage is just wrong. Frodo is the central character in the quest to destroy the ring, not Gandalf (much as I like Gandalf). I also don't like characters that are now missing in that montage.
Agree that Frodo should be center. Not sure if you're saying that you don't care for the missing characters in the montage, or don't like that they are missing from the montage.
I've read the series a few times, but not in more than 25 years. I've seen the extended versions of the movies 3-4 times now. I like both, even though I know there are differences.
Over time, I've grown to think/feel that Sam is a very important character in the entire series, and this idea seems to get more recognition, especially in the extended version movies. He's the "everyman" that just gets things done without a need for pomp or huge recognition. It's be a shame if he was left out of any new art.
