The Atlas of Middle-earth (revised edition) by Karen Wynn Fonstad; $16.38 – “While it’s not 100% accurate, it’s still a wonderful way to bring the journey of the Fellowship to life.

Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.” Order HERE.
Gandalf miniature figure by Weta Workshop; $74.99 – “…the detail is
wonderful! From the expression and posture as he sits quietly with
his pipe and hat at his feet to the frayed hem of his clothes, it’s
Gandalf as we rarely see him.” Order HERE.
Funko Pop! LotR Balrog 6″ Action Figure; $15.99 – “If you could ask members of the Fellowship to describe the Balrog, it’s highly likely the last thing they would have said is: adorable. But, this little guy from Funko POP is exactly that. Standing 6” tall, the Balrog comes complete with flaming hair, eyes and whip. Together with other Funko POP LOTR collectibles, the Balrog will make a unique statement in your collection. If you don’t already own any LOTR Funko POP items, the Balrog is a perfect way to start!” Order HERE.

The Mouth of Sauron; $699 – “The Mouth of Sauron only got some love in the Extended Edition of The Return of the King. It took 14 years to get this statue but it was well worth it.

Weta Mini-Epics; $29.99 each -“Debuting at Comic-Con 2017 these guys are I think destined to be a hit.

This line launched with Frodo, Gollum, Gimli, Uruk-hai Berserker, and a Moria Orc all these are currently available.” Order HERE.
Beren and Lúthien/The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun by J.R.R. Tolkien; $30/$24- “As readers will know, this year saw the publication of the ‘complete’ edition of Tolkien’s Beren and Luthien. In what he wrote would be ‘(presumptively) my last book in the long series of editions of my father’s writings’, Christopher Tolkien has gathered and carefully edited the various tellings of the Professor’s ultimate love story. The publication also includes gorgeous illustrations by renowned Middle-earth artist Alan Lee. Why not pair this book with The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun (published just recently in America, though British publishers Harper Collins released it in 2016), as a fabulous gift to keep a Tolkien fan happy on long winter nights?” Order both HERE.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Commemorative Stamps and Coins; starting at $17.80 – “Believe it or not, it is still possible to get wonderful Hobbit coins and stamps from New Zealand Post. Many of their collectibles which were released to tie in with the movies have sold out, (as you can see at their website), but some gorgeous coins and miniature sheets are still available. I always think these stamps and coins are particularly classy collectibles – beautiful and easy to display. Any fans of Peter Jackson’s films would be thrilled to find something lovely from NZ Post in amongst their holiday gifts.” Order HERE.
LotR Collection from Shire Post Mint; starting at $10 – “Finally, if you like shiny, precious things – and who doesn’t? – but are more into book inspired collectibles than movie related items, check out the stunning coins and jewelry from Shire Post Mint. Their beautiful sets look like something you could actually spend on a pint at the Green Dragon, or could gamble away in a game of dice with Gondorian soldiers… I particularly love the Elvish Leaf necklaces – if I found the Elvish Silver Leaf of Winter necklace in my stocking, I’d be delighted. Just sayin’.” Order HERE.Posted in Books, Books Publications, Clothing, Collectibles, Collectibles, Daniel Falconer, Jewelry, Jewelry, Merchandise, Other Merchandise, Shop, Stamps & Coins, Tolkien Gift Guide, Toys, Toys, Weta Collectibles on December 4, 2017 by deej
