Weta Workshop at Comic-Con 2012 had several items straight from Middle-Earth. Some of their eye popping The Lord of the Rings items included the much anticipated Fellowship diorama series and the truly amazing looking Barad-Dur environment. Weta also introduced us to their 1:6th line of statues from the first of two films based on The Hobbit. Representing the start of the line you had characters such as Gandalf The Grey, Bilbo Baggins, Dwalin (my favorite), Balin, Bombur, and Thorin (Comic-Con Exclusive version). They also had some props from the film that will like these statues be up for sale come October. As, I just mentioned the Thorin you will see is their Comic-Con Ex version and a regular version minus a piece of his shield will be up for sale in October. Weta had one of the coolest booths at the Con this year with all the items and the Trolls who feature in the film and The Fellowship of the Ring.
