Battle Above the Black GateSideshow Collectibles is honoring the memory of a fallen co-worker by holding a charity auction to benefit the Diane Kamahele Memorial Fund – a fund set up to support Diane’s four children. One of the items will be of particular interest to LOTR fans:

This auction is for a one-of-a-kind treasure, an early sample of the faux-bronze version of the Battle Above the Black Gate Diorama. Our product development team tested several engineering solutions for this product, to ensure the product could be properly packaged for safe shipment. In this sample, the Fell Beast’s wings were designed to be detached from the body, intended to be packed separately for shipment to the collector … This is the only ‘detachable wing’ engineered sample of the Battle Above the Black Gate Diorama that exisits, or ever will exist, and you have the opportunity to own this archive-quality piece, which nicely illustrates the design & engineering present in every Sideshow product.

If you are a LOTR collector, this is a one of a kind item that you may not want to miss out on! And if you are simply feeling generous, the Memorial Fund accepts donations. [Black Gate Diorama Auction] [All Auctions] [Memorial Fund]
