Lord of the Rings Action Flipz Artbox - 2002
Notes: It is very difficult to tell some of the hobby-sticker variations apart from each other, but Futuristguy has provided some great explanations that you can view here. Flipz and stickers measure approximately 2-1/4" square. Because some of the clues on telling the stickers apart work better with some stickers than others, Dérik Dufour offers his suggestions, which I post at the bottom of this page. One basic problem is that it's a lot easier to tell them apart if you have all three types to compare, and more difficult to identify them if you only have one type! Many thanks to Jennifer Johnson, Joann Girard, and Futuristguy for the updates! In 2003, Artbox began issuing exclusive factory tins covering the three series. Information on these tins is posted here.

You will need the stickers #23 (Saruman) and a good source of light. Put the 3 stickers side by side and look in the window behind Saruman. - The Regular chrome: There's nothing in the window. - The Rainbow chrome: You can see the rainbow easily in the window. - The mosaic/squared: You see the small square in the window. Use the same technique with the other stickers, put side by side and compare.©2002, 2003, 2004 Jeff Allender. Comments, updates, & corrections are welcomed!
