Lord of The Rings - Action Flipz Tins
Artbox - 2003

Notes: In 2003, Artbox began issuing exclusive factory tins covering the three series.
Each set contained a tin with an exclusive image, either two packs of flipz cards or
a complete set of 60 flipz (as shown below),  and (except as noted) an exclusive promo
flipz. Note that the "TS1" series was issued both with the full ROTK set or with
two flipz packs.  Many thanks to Dona Peacock, Joann Girard, Dérik Dufour,
and Angie Clough for updates!

Large Action Flipz
  This card came out at about the same time, and I don't know where else to
  list it. Produced by Artbox, it is marked "Distributed exclusively in Canada
  by Motion Picture Distribution LP." It's titled "Lord of the Rings" on the
  front and "Seigneur des Anneaux" on the back. Has anybody spotted any other
  cards that might indicate this was a larger series? The markings are similar
  to some I've seen in some phone cards and other collectibles, meaning that
  Artbox issued a lot of items for different markets beyond the hobby-card
