Always wanted a Frodo but I'm not impressed with the Asmus version. Wish they would do a revision with a better paint job
@Antarion you’ll need to let us know how the clothes look. I have a Frodo from summer of 2021, and the pants and vest are made of the same material as the inner lining of his jacket. He has gone in and out of stock a couple of times since then, and I keep wondering if they’ve made changes.
I got a set of Frodo clothes from an older release and redressed him. The clothes not on the body that are all the same color are what I received from my 2021 batch figure. The second photo is to show the 2021 pants laying against the interior lining of both the older and newer jackets.
I’m not sure if the forum will keep a high enough resolution on the photo to show it, but the older pants are also a totally different kind of fabric in addition to being a different shade.
They’ve been making the best Frodo heads they ever had with these recent batches, but the cost cutting on the clothes’ material really stinks. Four tones and two different major material types vs Two tones and one material type.
Yeah I hear you, hence why they really need to work on a definitive version at this point. I'd happily take a Crown Frodo with rooted hair, correct costume and perhaps even have it as a double set so we could have a battered ROTK version.I don’t really want to give Asmus the idea that the latest iteration of pants is the best simply because they happen to be the darkest brown iteration. I feel the coloration is about as lifeless as a handful of dry potting soil, whereas the images of the costume like you’ve posted are closer to moist chocolate cake.
I feel insane for wanting to dissect these shades of brown. But all I know was that getting the figure dressed all in this one shade of brown was disappointing and made it look a little cheap. I displayed him with no vest at all until I got the alternate clothes. And still not being able to make something perfectly screen accurate after getting an alternate set, I went with my own personal preference.
Would love if Asmus re-did him. A Gandalf, InArt Aragorn and new Frodo would be epic together imo.An updated Asmus Frodo with correct costume colours is definitely long overdue now. The trousers are a dark brown velvet, the waistcoat is a shade lighter and the coat is a rusty brown herringbone with darker lapels which are closer in shade to the trousers.
Best combination for the Asmus stuff is to use the newer darker trousers with the lighter waistcoat. If you can find one, the old Sideshow Frodo coat is perfect as it's the correct colour & material and has a much better drape as it is cut slightly baggier then the Asmus version which is too tight.

Where did you get him from? Directly from Asmus' site?
I got him from this site. Looks like they still have some for sale.Where did you get him from? Directly from Asmus' site?
Thanks so much for responding! I never came across this site when searching for places who had Frodo at or below MSRP, so I was expecting to order him directly from Asmus (which would've been $173 total including shipping). However, I just ordered from here for $107 shipped!I got him from this site. Looks like they still have some for sale.
