Our friend and amazing artist Jerry Vanderstelt who as you all know has created so many superb pieces of Middle-earth will be starting a new line of prints capturing this world.
Fans will soon be able to start purchasing prints of the many landscapes we’ve seen in Peter Jackson’s films. The first print pending licensor approval will be capturing the beautiful place we all know as Rivendell. This is such a beautiful piece and looking at this picture you really do feel like you’re about to get an up close look at Rivendell. As soon as this goes up for sale in Jerry’s store we will let you know.

With all the holiday craziness that comes as we hit the holiday season you may have missed a brand-new item from our friends at Weta Workshop that went up for order on Black Friday. King Thror was one of the show stealers from Comic-Con this past July and now fans can add this to their collections.
The King is on sale through tomorrow night for a $50 discount taking him to $299, which is a great price for such a beautiful piece. If you wait and order him after Sunday at midnight then he goes back to his normal retail price of $349, and no matter the price you pay he is an in-stock item so you should have a King ready to show off when you have family/friends over for the Christmas.

Peter Jackson is the editor for the new, upcoming issue of Empire which is being released next week.
“Empire likes movies, and for that reason I have always liked Empire. As Editor-In-Chief for this issue, it’s certainly been an interesting experience — signing off pages and approving photo shoots for Empire, at the same time as I’m signing off visual effects shots and approving sound mixes for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies.
Coming to the end of such an unexpected, unforgettable journey fills me with a mixture of pride, relief, sadness, fun and satisfaction. Middle-earth is such a fascinating, rich world to explore and one that never leaves you, even if you leave it.”

I stumbled on this a little while back… and thought it quite cool… and then forgot about it. So before I forget again, check out this Lego “My Own Creation” of the entire Company of Thorin Oakenshield.
It’s the work of Pate-keetongu, a Finnish LEGO enthusiast who builds mostly Bionicle, castle and steampunks MOCs. (more…)

Today is the day! As we promised you last week, the Smaug the Terrible statue by our friends at Weta Workshop has gone up for order. This was a show stealing piece last year at Comic-Con, and I know many fans including myself have been waiting to get a chance to order this piece. Smaug went up today at 11am PST with a special pre-order price of $699, which is good through January 25th of next year; after that date the price will go up to $749. Another note about the pre-order: when fans place their orders there will be a $100 NRD (Non-Refundable Deposit) at the time of order. Smaug has an edition size of 2000 pieces world-wide, and as per the sign at Comic-Con is due to ship in quarter one of next year. Do not hesitate to order this piece and add what will be a grail into your collection!

TheHutt, chief editor at Henneth-Annun.ru provides us a hands-on look at the digipak for the Special Extended Edition of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. We have to say, with a couple of quibbles that will make hardcore collectors twitch in frustration, it looks pretty awesome.
In fact, as a visual presentation, it’s nearly perfect.

One of the best items from Comic-Con 2014 is coming up for Pre-Order next week.
Smaug the Terrible was so impressive and one of the most detailed statues I’ve ever seen. There has been so much packed into this statue to help recreate the amazing work by Weta Digital in bringing one of Tolkien’s coolest characters to life.
I know for myself, it has been one of the amazing pieces I’ve been eagerly awaiting to become available for order so I could get ready to add it to my collection. So the time has finally come to mark our calendars for next Tuesday, November 11th at 1pm PST. That is when our friends at Weta Workshop will put this superb collectible up for order. Make sure you get your order in so you can be one of the lucky 2000 collectors who will have a chance to have this in your collections.
