Is the chance to get any of the figures less then the others? If so - how many of the figures are "rare"? Is there more than one degree of rarity?
I am huge fan of LOTR, but I am cautious with this collectable aspect.

Sure - Gandalf is nigh on impossible to dig out of a booster this side of the Atlantic.

I had never played Heroclix before but decided I would buy 12 boosters at my FLGS and got:

01) Common - Frodo
02) Common - Legolas
03) Common - Ugluk
04) Common - Ugluk
05) Common - Shagrat
06) Common - Shagrat
07) Common - Ringwraith
08) Uncommon - Black Rider
09) Uncommon - Lurtz
10) Uncommon - Faramir
11) Rare - Eowyn
12) Chase Rare - Merry and Pippin

I don't know how common these types of pulls are. I don't know the ratio but it seems like In every 6 pack you get 1 Rare, 1-2 Uncommons, and 3-4 Commons. Sounds about right.

Is there any way by looking at the figure and card what rarity a figure is? I was looking for a symbol or different color or something. I haven't bought heroclix since the first couple sets so I don't know what the current labeling system is.

There should be a symbol on the dial with the logo of the set and if it's silver it means it is rare.

COMMONS - $2 each
UNCOMMONS - $5 "

SUPER-RARES - $30 - $40 "
