As you know, over the next couple of weeks or so TORn is conducting a pledge drive to raise funds and keep our servers running. But, as you might know, we also have some very exciting auctions going on over at ebay.
We have some fabulous, exclusive pieces up for grabs – including some things which, usually, money can’t buy! Here’s just four that might tickle your fancy:
Burger King Lord of the Rings Goblets: Arwen, Frodo, Strider, Gandalf
A like-new, complete set of 2001 Lord of the Rings, Fellowship of the Ring glass goblets. Only removed from boxes for displaying (unlit).
These 4 collectible goblets were only available with Burger King meals! The set includes Wizard Gandalf the Grey, Ring-bearer Frodo Baggins, Elven Princess Arwen Evenstar, and Strider the Ranger/Aragorn, Son of Arathorn glass goblets in their original boxes. Each goblet measures 7 inches tall and is made from glass with red LED lights in rubber cup bottom, which can be turned on or off for display.
HUGE replica of Bilbo’s Contract signed by Celebs & Oscar Party Attendees
Item’s size: a 44 x 72 inch foam core mounted reproduction
At auction is a huge replica of Thorin’s contract for Bilbo Baggins’ employment as Burglar for the Company of Dwarves on their Quest to The Lonely Mountain as it appeared in Peter Jackson’s movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. TheOneRing.net threw a magnificent party as we were joined by film celebrities, Tolkien artists, authors and many more to celebrate the 2012 Oscars on February 24, 2013 while The Academy Awards took place just around the corner in Los Angeles, California. This contract was signed by attendees at that party, including artists Donato Giancola and Tim Kirk, Celtic band Emerald Rose, and many others. Here’s your chance to own a piece of TORn and Cinema history… not to mention a very easy-to-read copy of Bilbo’s Contract!
This replica can be kept intact in one large piece if it’s picked up in person in Los Angeles, California. However, because of the size and dense mounting board this Contract is affixed to, the Contract will be divided into 12-inch sections for the most manageable and economic shipping cost possible.
The seller may be delayed in shipping this item right away as they’re on a Road Trip to DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia for TORn’s participation at that fantastic convention during Labor-Day Weekend.
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Sony PlayStation 2, 2004)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a beat-’em-up action title that follows events from the first two films in the movie trilogy, which is based on the novels of J.R.R. Tolkien. The game is inspired by the battle scenes found therein. The story is told through footage from the movie that slowly melds to in-game cinematic screens, all explaining the origin of The Ring and those who covet it. Players choose from three warrior characters, patterned after their onscreen personas: Legolas the Elf, Aragorn the Ranger, or Gimli the Dwarf. Then, embark on a quest that spans a multitude of levels. Players will revisit such familiar locales as Fangorn Forest and the Mines of Moria.

Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Sony PlayStation 2, 2003)
Electronic Arts continues their exclusive relationship with the cinematic versions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s famous trilogy with the release of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. In this combat game based on the third film by Peter Jackson, players will fight legions of orcs and other creatures from a third-person perspective as heroes Aragorn, Gimli, or Legolas. Following the same structure as its action-oriented predecessor, players will wield swords, axes, daggers, and bows to fight multiple enemies simultaneously. Featured locales include Minas Tirith, Mount Doom, and more, with each environment offering multiple tiers or planes to travel across. Now characters will be able to jump and climb, enabling them to interact with their surroundings to a greater degree. Film composer Howard Shore’s epic score punctuates the battles as the original cast provides the voice acting. The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King also features a number of film clips used as segues to the game’s action scenes.
