The many heroic and indelible characters who populated The Lord of the Rings film series, are also among the most familiar and cherished images in Hollywood history. Sideshow Collectibles, a specialty manufacturer of iconic television and film collectibles, in association with New Line Cinema, has produced a line of Lord of the Rings Premium Format figures. This 1:4 scale figure follows a very successful Lord of the Rings collectibles line, created when Sideshow Collectibles partnered with award winner effects studio, WETA workshop, to produce more than 180 high-end, collectable statues, busts, and helms. Sideshow Collectibles has worked closely in the past with New Line Cinema on licensed 12-inch figures from New Line's House of Horror, including such films as Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Sideshow Collectible's own Lord of the Rings range includes 12-inch figures from the landmark film series.
Sideshow's 12-inch posable figures feature more than 30 points of articulation. The figures combine intricate, layered costuming, action-oriented body poses, and come fully equipped with weapons, shields, and other authentic accessories.
