Weta Workshop The Hobbit Comic-Con Exclusives

As the folks at Weta Workshop released their newsletter tonight it contained their two exclusives for this years Comic-Con. The first of their exclusives will be a statue of Thorin Oakenshield leader of the Dwarves you will see in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This statue will have an Edition size of 700 pieces world wide with 500 of them being sold at the Con. Thorin will cost $250 and be limited to only two pieces per day during the Con to make sure fans get a chance. The other is an art print similar to the teaser poster for The Hobbit. This print by Gary Hunt will have 100 copies signed by Mr. Hunt while the other 400 will be sold without the signature. A limit of 2 per person will also be put on this collectible.
