Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop Orc Soldier and North Courtyard Pre-Orders

We’re just out of Comic-Con and Weta keeps on delivering new and amazing pieces for us fans to add to our collections. One of the things we’d not seen so far from The Hobbit Trilogy line is one of the many soldiers who aide Sauron, Azog, and Bolg. This has been taken care of with the latest release announcement of the Dol Guldur Orc Soldier. This Orc is brutal, with the blood on his armour, as well as the severed Dwarf heads on the pikes on his back. Fans will want to act quickly to grab this Orc as he’s limited to only 500 pieces with a price tag of $449.

The other new pre-order continues the Dol Guldur 1:30 Scale Collection. Fans can now add the North Courtyard allowing them to continue to build this scene and giving them more scope to recreate this scene in whatever way they want.  In-line with the South Courtyard this piece will be limited to 500 pieces and comes in at $149.

As you will recall, Weta has been doing questions in intervals and the winner will receive an autographed set of the 1:30 Dol Guldur set. The fifth and final question has just been released – which means the clock is ticking. Get your entries in before August 31 to go in the draw! Enter the Dol Guldur 1:30 Set Contest.

Collecting The Precious – My Middle-earth Collection Update

Almost four years ago I showed off my collection as it looked upon putting it in its own room. A lot has happened since then and I thought it was time to show how things look right now. As you will see I’ve added a lot of pieces, cabinet, and bookshelf since the last time I showed off my collection. This is for me, as I said, my way of showing off how much I love Middle-earth. My collection encompasses pieces from Weta Workshop, Sideshow Collectibles, Badali Jewelry, Noble Collection, United Cutlery, and even custom pieces. So I hope you enjoy taking a tour of my collection.

Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop Comic-Con 2017 Booth Tour and Recap

Comic-Con 2017 may be over but our coverage still has a little left for you all. Our friends at Weta Workshop had some really awesome pieces this year and were full of surprises. They hit us with pieces like Thranduil on Elk as well as the Gollum 1:3 mixed media statue. Both these pieces are fantastic and pieces nobody saw coming, which made covering the booth even more exciting. We had two pieces that fans had long been waiting to see, where fans could order them and get them added to their collections. Of course one of those was Grond who we had been patiently waiting to be able to order, and then we also got the Mouth of Sauron on Steed. Both pieces are limited with Grond at 500 pieces and the Mouth of Sauron at 750 pieces. Fans can expect these won’t last long so make sure to get your pre-orders in now.

Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop’s Hobbit Hole 19 & 20 Pine Grove

I’m a big fan of the Hobbit Hole line. It’s such a cool way to bring Hobbiton into a collection and is a price point that fans can get into Middle-earth collectibles so easy. Our friends at Weta Workshop today introduce a new Hobbit Hole for folks to add with Hobbit Hole 19 & 20 Pine Grove. This fantastic piece is super detailed and very much gives you the feel that you now have a piece of Hobbiton in you collection. Like the other Hobbit Holes this piece is an open edition and is currently in stock. This one is however larger than some of the other Hobbit Holes and will have a price tag of $99.

Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop’s South Courtyard of Dol Guldur Pre-Order

As you know we currently have an amazing contest going for a signed entire set of Weta Workshop’s 1:30 Dol Guldur scene. Going up for Pre-Order today is the South Courtyard area, which will be limited to only 500 pieces. This fantastic piece captures the broken down, thorny vine, creepy feel that we saw the Dol Guldur sequence during The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Not only does it do that but this gives you the freedom to create “what if” this happened during that sequence in the film when other pieces from the 1:30 range are added. The newest Dol Guldur piece comes in with a price tag of $99 and will be shipping in August of 2017.

Collecting The Precious – Middle-earth: Shadow of War Story Trailer

The folks over at Monolith Studios released the official story trailer for the follow to the hit game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Middle-earth: Shadow of War picks up where the events of the first game end, with your two main characters Talion and Celebrimbor still looking for revenge against Sauron. This time our two main characters will create a “new” Ring of Power that they believe cannot be controlled by Sauron. In order to make sure of total victory, besides the new ring you will recruit followers who will help you in battle via the new large scale battle system. The trailer looks really cool and having played the first game I’m very much looking forward to playing this one.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro; the game is up for pre-order right now at all your e-tailers with Standard, Silver, Gold, and Mithril Editions. Currently Middle-earth: Shadow of War is due to arrive October 10th, 2017.
