Our friends at Weta have released the the second print in their The Lord of the Rings art print line with the subject matter capturing Arwen’s attempt to get Frodo to Rivendell after being stuck by the Witch King on Weathertop. This amazing print beautifully captures a secene during this chase where you can see Arwen looking back at the Ringwraiths on her tail along with the look of falling into shadow that Frodo has on his face. The artist for this piece is Gus Hunter a long time artist at Weta who got his start working on The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. This superb work of art is available right now for pre-order from Weta for a price of $35 plus shipping from their New Zealand warehouse. So make sure you get over to Weta’s site now and order your Flight to the Ford print today!

This week we have something a little different from previous articles you’ve seen with this column. Art Prints are a collectible I love adding to my collection especially when the subject is The Lord of the Rings. So, I wanted to take the time and get something set up with one of the leading artist out there working in Middle-earth.
The artist that I wanted to bring to your attention is the one and only Jerry Vanderstelt. You may recognize Jerry’s work from his The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Prints, ‘Clash of The Kings,’ ‘Fell Beast Print,’ or his most recent ‘Sauron’ Print. Not to mention Jerry has done many Star Wars pieces for ACME Archives. These art prints from Jerry are some of the best pieces in my collection, and only add to the amazing items we’ve seen from Weta and Sideshow Collectibles. Needless to say after seeing the print pictures in this article and reading the Q&A below, you need to go to Jerry Vanderstelt’s site and get your prints now!
Finally, I want to thank those that helped with some of the questions. Sending them in really aided me in getting this article finished. Click the ‘Continue’ button to read the interview.

The other morning in my email inbox, the weekly Weta Collectibles newsletter was sitting there waiting to be read. Of course as any fan does I opened ready to see if there was anything that I had to get into my collection. As I had hoped there was something that I will have to add as it’s really something I think you all should grab as well.
The crew from Weta has announced the ‘Disturber of the Peace‘ art print. Obviously, the name of this piece comes from when Gandalf entered Hobbiton and meets up with Frodo. The print however captures the scene as Gandalf The Grey knocks on Bilbo’s little gate door as they prepare for his 111th birthday. This piece has an amazing view of not only that moment but you get a truly beautiful look of the Shire as a whole.
Ben Wooten is the artist who is responsible for one of the best looking Lord of the Rings prints around. Mr. Wooten who for five years worked at Weta did work on movies like The Lord of the Rings and King Kong. He no longer works at Weta but when he did a couple of well know pieces he had a hand in where the Ringwraith on Steed and the Balrog from the statue line.
‘Disturber of the Peace‘ can be bought right now on Weta’s website and will be autographed by Mr. Wooten himself. The price of this art print is only $35 plus shipping which for an art print of this quality is a steal. Once framed this piece will look even more exceptional on your wall so please don’t pass up a chance to order this now. [Order]

Been to Wellington? Couldn’t get that perfect memento of your visit? Daniel Reeve has filled a gap spotted by local tour company Rover Tours and Jack of the Noldor Blog, and created a Tolkien-inspired map of Wellington’s film sites. It’s in that authentic quill-pen, parchment style Reeve does so well. You can have fun translating the Reeves’ runes into real place names. No doubt there’ll be a mountain of Tolkien-themed goodies available when The Hobbit comes out, but in the meantime, there are a few of these available to buy right now. [See More]
