The White Council
Also known as the Council of the Wise. Composed of prominent elves and wizards, the council first met in 2463 of the Third Age, and continued to meet until 2953. Its mission was to investigate and discern the rise of an evil power in the West. This power turned out to be Sauron returned, in the form of the Necromancer of Dol Guldur, located in the south western eaves of Mirkwood, which was once known as Greenwood the Great.
The figures presented here are those from the now discontinued boxed set and feature:
Saruman the White, Head of the Order of Wizards.
Thranduil, elven king of the Woodland Realm in Northern Mirkwood. Father of Legolas.
Glorfindel, Lord of the West. Here presented in heavy elven armour.
Galadriel, Lady of Lothlorien. Here presented in her 'war form', as shown when she displays her power in the movie, to Frodo, when he consults with her at the Mirror of Galadriel.
Cirdan, Elven Shipwright and Master of the Grey Havens, also known as Mithlond.
Erestor. Noldorin elf and presented here as Captain of the Rivendell Guard in heavy elven armour.
