Not really.... the rear legs only go back so they are horizontal and the feet are kinda low given the articulation of the knees... so it only comes up chest high to a minifig. Again; if the front legs rotated like the back you'd get more flexibility like kicking up higher for example.
Imagine a horse's rear hooves impacting your chest...
Still, I agree about the LOTR sets. I've got Moria, Uruk-Hai army, and Shelob sets. I especially love Shelob. The other day I saw the old Harry Potter set with Aragog. I just laughed.
Actually, I really love the uruk-hai and orcs, too.
And everything else.
My only problem-- Legolas's hair means you can't turn his head so he will aim his bow. No matter, I can work around that.
BTW--Legolas is freaking awesome.
