Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop Comic-Con 2015 Booth Tour

July 14, 2015 at 6:05 pm by elessar  - 

IMG_5664We’ve completed another Comic-Con and once again our friends at Weta Workshop did not disappoint. There are new pieces from both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, thus letting fans add to the amazing work from Weta many of us already have. From The Lord of the Rings comes one of the coolest looking orcs in the Uruk-hai Swordsman piece, another great environment in Minas Tirith, and the mini line adds Frodo Baggins. The Uruk-hai and Minas Tirith are due to ship during quarter four of this year while Frodo is due in quarter three.

The Hobbit line has several new additions, some in-stock as well as pre-orders. From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey there are two in-stock purchases with The Green Dragon and Hobbit Hole #35, and Bilbo’s Pipe, due out in quarter three of this year. Legolas Greenleaf from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is up for pre-order right now as well, with shipment due to start in quarter four of this year. The Hobbit also has several new items that are coming soon. From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey we get Dori, Ori, and the wonderful Hobbit Hole #23. From The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies we get Elrond in that amazing Dol Guldur armor along with the pretty slick Dain on War Boar, both slated for quarter one of 2016. Also from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies we get Azog in an equally slick looking armor but in two different scales. First is a full 1:6th statue as he smashes the ice in the battle Thorin Oakenshield, due out in the fourth quarter of this year. The other Azog is a new scale from Weta coming in 1:10th, which is something I think fans are really going to like. This scaled figures will be made of vinyl allowing them to fit in any collection, as well as having switch out parts for those that like to create their own looks. He will also be shipping in quarter four of this year with his big brother.
