10 BOROMIR

See The Price Amazon

Boromir was a member of the Fellowship of the Ring. He was the son of Denethor, the Steward of Gondor and sent to Rivendell at his father's request. He seemed to join Frodo's company reluctantly, but he was a great warrior nonetheless.

Famous for his use of a sword, shield, and horn, he was an iconic character in the movies. This Funko Pop! brings Boromir to the bobblehead world. All the details on his suit and face are accurate. He is even holding the Horn of Gondor in one hand, which he used in the movies to signal that he was in trouble.

9 GIMLI

See The Price Amazon

Gimli is the only major dwarf to appear in The Lord of the Rings. He joined the Fellowship and worked alongside Aragorn and Legolas for most of the trilogy. Despite his gruff appearance, Gimli was often the comic relief character, having quippy lines with Legolas and often competing to get the most kills.

All of Gimli's Dwarvish details are brought to life in this Funko Pop! figure. Even the insignia on his helmet is represented accurately. Gimli is also holding two axes, which lets him stand out from the other figures. You can even see chainmail underneath his brown armor.

8 THE WITCH KING

See The Price Amazon

The Witch King is the leader of the Nazgul and Sauron's most powerful servant in The Lord of the Rings. Not only was he responsible for stabbing Frodo on Weathertop, but he was also the one who led Sauron's army during the battle of Minas Tirith.

He was the deadliest opponent who struck fear into the Gondorians. The Witch King's menacing appearance is replicated perfectly with this Funko Pop! figure. He is given a flaming sword, which he used in the films to destroy Gandalf's staff. Despite having a cutesy design, there's still something menacing about the Witch King Funko Pop!.

7 KING OF THE DEAD

See The Price Amazon

When Mordor was marching toward Minas Tirith, the men of Middle-Earth banded together to stop them. However, Aragorn knew their numbers were too few, so he took a different road to summon the Army of the Dead.

These ghoulish soldiers were led by the King of the Dead, who had a skeletal appearance. This design is reflected in the Funko Pop! figure. It's easy to see the King of the Dead's skeleton, but he also has the transparent green shade of a man with facial hair, just like his appearance in The Return of the King. There are also many great details on the armor and crown.

6 GANDALF

See The Price Amazon

There are a few Funko Pop! figures of the wizard Gandalf already, but this one has to be one of the best. This figure represents the time when the Fellowship was traveling through the Mines of Moria.

Gandalf has to use all of his power to get the company out, and it nearly destroyed him in the process. Not only does this figure not have Gandalf's hat, but he is wielding both his staff and his sword. Adding more to the figure is the dirt around his face, signifying that he has been battling and needs a break. It captures a great moment in the trilogy.

5 ELROND

See The Price Amazon

Elrond is the lord of Rivendell in The Lord of the Rings and the one who organized the council that decided the fate of the One Ring. Elrond has a few different appearances in the trilogy, but this Funko Pop! figure captures his most iconic.

This figure shows Elrond wearing robes with Elven markings as well as his braided crown from the trilogy. Because the figure is standing upright with its hands wide open, it shows the famous hospitality of the Elves that was also present in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. All the details are on point with this figure.

4 BALROG

See The Price Amazon

The Balrog of Morgoth was a demon of the ancient world. It slept in Moria for years before the Dwarves accidentally woke it up. When the Fellowship traveled through Moria, they were met by this fearsome foe who could only be defeated by Gandalf.

The Balrog has such a menacing design that it left an impression on many viewers. That design is reflected in this Funko Pop! figure. The Balrog Funko Pop! is appropriately larger than standard Funko Pops to depict its larger size. It also comes with its flaming whip and fire accents around its body. Even as a bobblehead, it's still scary.

3 TEMPTED GALADRIEL

See The Price Amazon

Galadriel was the most beautiful Elf in Middle-Earth in The Lord of the Rings. However, she had a great deal of power that was only hinted at. When the Fellowship reached Lothlorien and met Galadriel, Frodo offered to give her the One Ring.

Tempted, she gave Frodo a glimpse of the power that would be unleashed if she were to have it. That brief look at Galadriel is what inspired this Funko Pop! figure. Galadriel is wearing a different outfit and is covered in a pale blue. The figure even replicates the pose she took in the movie during the scene.

2 WITCH KING ON FELL BEAST

See The Price Amazon

While this is the second time the Witch King is featured on this list, it's easy to understand why. After the Nazguls' horses were drowned by Arwen in The Fellowship of the Ring, they resorted to using Fell Beasts during the rest of the trilogy.

These were dragon-like monsters that only made the Nazgul more threatening. The Witch King rode his Fell Beast to battle in The Return of the King, which is what made him so frightening. This Funko Pop! gives fans the Witch King on his Fell Beast, preparing to send his legions out to Minas Tirith. It has great detail from the scales on the Fell Beast to the tattered robes of the Witch King.

1 SAURON

See The Price Amazon

One Pop! to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. Sauron is the antagonist of The Lord of the Rings, though he spends most of the trilogy as a flaming eye atop Barad Dur. In the prologue in The Fellowship of the Ring, we see the massive figure in his full form. Clothed in a full set of menacing armor and a mace in hand, the Dark Lord Sauron nearly defeated the alliance of Men and Elves single-handedly.

This version of Sauron was given a Funko Pop! figure. What's impressive is the sheer number of intricate details that are accurately represented with the figure, all the way down to the tiny inscriptions on his armor. It's a figure made for the fans.
