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.

Today, we get a preview video of an upcoming Lord of the Rings piece and a Pre-Order from the movie RoboCop. From Lord of the Rings we get the Snow Troll Statue which is absolutely huge looking in the video I will link for you. This character comes from the War in the North video game that will arrive in September of this year. In the video we also get great looks at the upcoming Arwen maquette and what her exclusive will be along with a great look at the Boromir Maquette.
Robocop one of the cooler action movies from the 80’s is getting a life sized bust. Made by Fred Barton this piece captures the armored cop in all his glory. Robocop will come with a price tag of $850 and an NRD of $85 but will look great any any collection he enters. No edition size has been announced and he will not be shipping until the 4th quarter of this year.
In this review I will be going over the new Aragorn maquette from Sideshow Collectibles Lord Of The Rings maquette line. With this line Sideshow will be taking looks at the characters we’ve grown to love reading or watching Lord Of The Rings and show us other aspects of those characters. This line is off to a great start with this piece and what we’ve seen in the 12 days of Sideshow back in December. I have no problems saying this piece is truly one of my all time favorite pieces.
As always here’s the review and a lot of pictures.
