During their New York Comic-Con Online, our friends at Sideshow Collectibles debuted a new collectible from Middle-earth.
If you’ve been following the line of collectibles from Iron Studios you would know that they’ve been creating the Balin’s Tomb sequence from The Fellowship of the Ring. We’ve already got Gimli and Legolas and now, taking this set up to the next level, we’ve got a Cave Troll! Fans can pre-order it right now for $725 with payment plans available, to add it to their collections next summer when it ships.

Over the summer I got a chance to sit down and finally review one of my favorite pieces, and my favorite version, of the character Aragorn. This outstanding piece from our friends at Weta Workshop has long been sold out, with eager collectors snapping it up during the early bird pre-order stage. So while you may have to go to the secondary market if you want to get him yourself, I hope you use this review to see it is absolutely worth tracking down.

Collectors should log into their accounts before it goes live (times listed below) and be ready to be quick with the order button. We’ve been waiting for years to get another shot at the Cave Troll.

Gondor isn’t the only realm in Middle-earth that is getting some love from the folks at Budk. Rohan is getting attention in the form of the helm and sword of none other than Eomer.
The helm is designed to look exactly like the one worn during The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. As with other items from Budk it will be made out of polyresin but will be brushed to give it the appearance of steel. The helm will also be leather padded, it comes with a leather chin strap, and imitation horse hair to finish off a pretty cool looking helmet. The base is made of wood and designed to look like Eomer’s armor. This one is limited to only 1500 pieces, priced at $356, and is expected in February 2021.
The other Eomer themed item is his sword Guthwine. The sword has a 27” stainless steel blade and precisely detailed metal hilt parts, finished in brass. The sword will also come with a decorated wall display so you can hang this in your collection room. You can snag this sword for $206 and it is also due in February of 2021. Both items will come with certificates of authenticity.

Budk has some awesome new items coming to fans over the next few months.
The first amazing piece coming from them is The Horn of Gondor, that we saw Boromir carry and use during The Fellowship of the Ring. The size of the horn, overall is 19”, it is made of finely cast polyresin, with precisely-molded details for the look of real polished brass and steer horn. The horn comes with a 62” genuine leather shoulder strap and a polystone wall display, sculpted with the Tree of Gondor Motif. Fans will also get a certificate of authenticity with their replica. Collectors can place their pre-order right now for $169 with it expected to ship in February of next year.
