If you live in LA and you have some time in the next few weeks, get your butt over to The Puzzle Zoo, on the Third St. Promenade in Santa Monica. The Puzzle Zoo has a completely unique store display, built for them by the folks from Sideshow/WETA Collectibles. The display is absolutely gorgeous.
The thing that grabs your attention is the large scale model of a Troll (turned to stone by Gandalf in The Hobbit) reaching out at passers by on the sidewalk. The troll’s finger-tips are pressed against the glass. Next to his head, is a large layout of the Sideshow/WETA Collectible offerings. While they display objects from series 1 to 3, not all of them are currently for sale. However, you can purchase all of series 1, right now at the official SideShow/WETA website.
Green Books Writer Quickbeam and his friend Robert had a chance to visit the store and take some pictures. So Enjoy!
