Barad-dur: Fortress of Sauron. Weta

 

Soaring from the base, the ominous dark tower reaches an impressive total height of more than 20 inches (530 mm) and weighs in at a staggering 22 lbs (10 kg). *

The menace of the Dark Lord is perfectly captured in every detail, this piece is an EXACT model of the Shooting Miniature (or BIG-ature) used by director Peter Jackson in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Every crag, buttress, rampart and pinnacle has been expertly reproduced by Weta Senior Model maker David Tremont and his team of model makers, mould makers, sculptors and painters.

Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron is different to other environments in that it will be made from a combination of polystone and polyurethane. Being such a complex structure, the use of polyurethane ensures the smallest and finest details can be accurately reproduced with reduced risk of breakages.

Minas Tirith Environment. Weta1463

 

The greatest city of Gondor, the citadel of Minas Tirith is a towering, fortified community built into the side of the White Mountains.

Minas Tirith has seven levels, divided by concentric walls and crowned by the Tower of Ecthelion and the Court of the Fountain, where grows the White Tree of Gondor. Bisecting the city, a great rock abutment sprouts from the mountainside like the prow of a ship.

When war comes to Gondor, Minas Tirith is besieged by the forces of Mordor to the East. Riding to the defense of the city from Rohan and beyond, the free peoples of Middle-earth mount their last stand against the Dark Lord's overwhelming forces at Minas Tirith.

The Minas Tirith environment from Weta is based on the miniature featured in The Lord of the Rings and built by the same artists and craftsmen that work on our movies.

Rivendell. Weta 1697

 

Home to Elrond, Rivendell was founded in the year 1697 of the Second Age by the Elven Lord as a haven amid the growing darkness in the north of Middle-earth. Under the protection of Elrond's Ring of Power Vilya, Rivendell was a sanctuary and meeting place for the forces of light and persisted in secrecy and security until the War of the Ring and the fall of Sauron, the enemy. There dwelt the Lady Arwen, and king in exile, Aragorn, came and went as he pleased. Bilbo Baggins called Rivendell home in his declining years, and often it hosted secret war councils and discussions among the leaders of the free peoples. The heirlooms of Middle-earth were gathered there in Elrond's library: Narsil, the sword of Elendil that cut the Ring from Sauron's hand, and Aiglos, the spear of Gil-Galad, among others.

Imladris, the Last Homely House - the Elven settlement was known by many names, though its paths were shrouded in secrecy and enchantment. Perched among waterfalls in a hidden valley in the foothills of the Misty Mountains, Elrond's home provided a safe haven for Thorin's company during the quest for Erebor and Frodo's party when they sought refuge from Sauron's wraiths. It was at Elrond's council in Rivendell that the Fellowship of the Ring was born and the quest to destroy the One began. Even beyond the end of the Third Age, when the Rings of Power were no more and Elrond had passed over the Sea, Rivendell remained, at least for a time, in the keeping of Elrond's sons Elladan and Elrohir.

The Rivendell environment from Weta is based on the miniature featured in The Lord of the Rings and built by the same artists and craftsmen that work on our movies. The combined efforts of 14 people have resulted in a stunningly detailed environment that evokes the serenity and peace of the House of Elrond.

7.9x18.1x12.2"/20x46x31 cm.

White Council Chamber. Weta 01008

 

At the lip of a waterfall with breathtaking views over the hidden valley to the east stands an airy dome of carved stone. A roof of delicately interlaced stone tracery perches atop twenty-four elegant carved pillars, each gently entwined by snaking vines. In the centre sat a broad, flat table around which Rivendell’s Lord Elrond played host to members of the White Council.

In this chamber, with the roar of the waterfall underlining the gravity of their discourse and the stars overhead, a gathering of wise Elf Lords and members of the Order of Wizards convenes to debate whisper of the return of their ancient enemy. Saruman the White, leader of the council and greatest of the Istari, casts doubt upon the signs and evidence brought before them by his fellow Wizard, Gandalf the Grey, but standing with Gandalf at the break of dawn, the Lady Galadriel of Lórien reassures her long time friend of the esteem and trust with which she regards him.

Beneath the pale stone arch and as the first light of day sets her hair ablaze with shining gold, she promises to be at his side when needed most.

Weta is very proud to announce the first collectible environment from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Weta's legacy of finely crafted minitures from Middle-earth continues with this iconic piece from the first movie.

The White Council Chamber environment from Weta is based on the set featured in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and built by a team of the same artists and craftsmen that work on our movies, led by Senior Modelmaker David Tremont and Leonard Ellis.

Orthanc - Black Tower of Isengard. Weta

 

Before the great wizard was turned to the dark side, in the time when Gandalf sought council with Saruman - the head of his order - Isengard was lush and green and its gardens lent themselves well to a contemplative stroll.

This Orthanc is the inspiration for Weta's latest environment from The Lord of the Rings.

Weta has previously created an Orthanc collectible based on Isengard AFTER Saruman and his orc cohorts felled the trees and turned the once-pleasant sanctuary into an industry of war and destruction.

This new Orthanc at just under 17 in (43cm) towers above the old collectible, which has allowed for intricate detail in the tower as well as the surrounding gardens.

The Fellowship of the Ring, part 1

 

Leading this brave trek across wild and dangerous country is the Wizard Gandalf, wisest of his order and friend to Elves, Men and Dwarves.  At his side is the ring bearer Frodo Baggins, a gentle spirited Hobbit far from the green swathed hills of The Shire.  Though all the Fellowship’s members are sworn to protect and guide him in his quest, ultimately the burden of carrying this mighty weapon of the enemy is Frodo’s alone to shoulder.  In Frodo’s service are the keen eyes and strong arms of the Elf prince Legolas of the Woodland Realm, an archer of great renown and integrity.  The Elf’s hawk-sharp gaze scans the horizon, alert to threat and boon.

This is the first in a series of three Sets, which together make up the entire Fellowship of the Ring. The first set includes the first 3 characters; Gandalf the Grey, Frodo Baggins and Legolas.

These three Sets have been created in response to ongoing collector requests for a diorama of the full Fellowship on their trek across Middle-earth. They have been sculpted at miniature scale (for those with limited shelf space) and are ideally suited to display alongside our iconic The Lord of the Rings environments.

The height from the bottom of the base to the tip of Gandalf's hat is 5.5 inches (or 14cm). The base is 7.5 inches (or 19cm) long and 5.1 inches (or 13cm) wide. Frodo is just 3 inches (7.5cm) tall from his head to his toes.

The Fellowship of the Ring has been sculpted, molded, modeled and painted by a wide team of artists from Weta Workshop, who helped create the Trilogy. It is then reproduced in polystone resin, the material of choice for fine art details.*

The height from the bottom of the base to the top of Boromir´s blonde locks is 5.1 inches (or 13 cm). The base is 7.9 inches (or 20 cm) long and 5.1 inches (or 13 cm) wide. The hobbits are just 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall from head to toe and Gimli only slightly taller at 3.5 inches (9 cm).

Hobbithole: 36 Bagshot Row

Scattered among the grassy hills of Hobbiton like a purse full of lost coins, the bright round doors of many dozen hobbit-holes shine in bright, summery hues, each home to a Hobbit or family of the little people.

As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.

Turning right out of his front gate would lead Mister Bilbo BagginsTM past the entrance of number 36 Bagshot Row, the pretty, blue-doored home of one of Hobbiton’s most enthusiastic flower gardeners, with its front yard full of pots of colourful blooms.

As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as Hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.

Crowned by the resplendent Bag End, Bagshot Row is dotted with a handful of more modest dwellings, bearing wreaths of flowers and painted door faces.

Neighbouring Bilbo Baggins on the left is the warm red door of number 40 Bagshot Row, a humble Hobbit-hole when compared to Bag End, modestly dressed with small white flowers and a stone slab porch. Well kept in true Hobbit fashion, it overlooks the Party Field and the Party Tree and is the second home in a series of collectible Hobbit Hole environments from the artists at Weta. *

As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as Hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.

Just where you enter Hobbiton from the south, the road bends and enters a cutting through the grassy hills surrounding the village.

It´s known locally as Gandalf´s Cutting after the Grey Wizard who often enters from that direction. Just there, on the left is a smial with a blue door adorned with a beautiful leadlight porthole and a small halfmoon window, often dressed with drapes to match.

Observant moviegoers may have seen Everard Proudfoot sweeping its doorstep...

Climbing the hill, bound for Bag End, well-wishers and distant relations of the esteemed Mr. Baggins would pass the colourful number 35 on their right, with its distinctive brick and thatch-roofed extension.
Each an individual dwelling, the Hobbit holes lend themselves splendidly to creative placement in your cabinet. With a flat back and shallow depth of only 55mm, they can be placed on mantles, cornices, shelves and in windows.

Tom the Troll. Weta 01278

 

The first misfortune to befall Bilbo Baggins and his Dwarf companions on their quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain comes in the form of three gruesome Trolls with plans to cook the Company for their dinner. Dimmest of the three ruffians, Tom the Troll resides at the bottom of their brutal walloping order. Wheedling, allergy-ridden and lazy-eyed, Tom frequently catches blows from his companion...*

William the Troll. Weta 01280

 

Weta, 2013. Height: 6.5"/16.5 cm. 

 William the Troll - the third and final in our trio of gruesome trolls is here. We have previously introduced you to Tom the Troll and Bert the Troll.

By virtue of a slight advantage in intellect and a forceful character, William the Troll is the trio’s leader and provider, snatching up the Dwarves’ ponies for their dinner. Calculating - by Troll standards - it is William who realises catching Bilbo is the key to disarming the angry Dwarf mob that attacks them. He is the only one of the group who grasps that the Hobbit is trying to trick them with cooking tips and tales of parasites, but, unfortunately for the Trolls, a little too late.*
