    I love the idea to sit flat as a bust or wall mount, they must be on some swivel mechanism.

    Can you imagine how much they would charge us for a FS Fell Beast statue in 1/6 if this bust retails for $699? :freezing:

    Gollum 1/3 is supposed to go up for pre-order tomorrow...I'm curious how much this will cost.
    Oh,and it has been confirmed Weta is going forward with their Hobbit/LOTR 1/3 line...next 1/3 release is from LOTR.
    Honestly I can only see Frodo,Gandalf or Aragorn as possible candidates to be immortalised in 1/3 scale.
    I don't expect them to do the complete fellowship...especially with Weta's intention to release only one 1/3 scale piece per year.

    Nothing should surprise me anymore price-wise but I'm still shocked at that price tag for such a small character with an ES of almost 600.
    I was expecting 1000-1200 EUR but hey,Weta is playing with the big boys now...

    It's more or less the price I've paid for my 1/4 Alien Queen statue of 120cm long and 107cm tall with an ES of 300 pieces.
    Gollum on a giant rock is 42cm tall and Weta don't have to pay lincense fees either.

    Well,I liked the video very much and you can feel the love behind the project.
    It's nice and all but personally I'm not blown away like everybody else is apparently.
    We'll see what prime 1 brings to the table.

    Well they're obviously trying a new premium thing here since other, regular resin pieces of this size are still priced "normally".

    Movie Gollum seems to have a big fanbase, so maybe they can pull it off? :shrug:

    $1000 for a 35cm tall polystone Troll statue can't really be categorised as normal ,lol
