Weta Workshop is at it again! This time they’re wowing fans on the East Coast with the goodies they brought with them to New York Comic-Con. This event brought us several new items from both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. From The Hobbit Trilogy we got an amazing Smaug bust it is a hugely detailed piece giving fans a super upclose look at him without being turned to ash. You can order Smaug right now for $399 with it shipping in Dec/Jan. Also up for order and a new piece from NYCC is one of the cooler looking Orcs in this set of films Yazneg. Like the other Orcs he has that brutal looking skirt of Dwarf faces. You can also pre-order him right now for $279 with him arriving in Dec/Jan. The final Hobbit item is one that debut at Comic-Con this past July. Ori the Dwarf comes to fans with an edition size of only 500 pieces and with a price of $249 he is sure to sell fast. He’s in-stock, so make sure to get your order in now.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy was not to be left out as well. Fans got two of the most asked for pieces since the films landed in 2001. The first item comes from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and more specially The Battle of the Last Alliance. That’s right! We’re finally getting a statue of the a High Elven Soldier statue. No price, as of yet, but as soon as we have more info we will let you know. The next piece comes at the other end of the trilogy, being from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Fans can finally add Grond to their fantastic Middle-earth collections. If you check out Weta’s Facebook page they have a video posted showing Grond will actually move. Again, no word on price or time frame but we will pass it along soon.
