    LOL

    I still think the original RWOS is perfect and arguably the best ME piece ever sculpted.

    Some impressions:

    Treebeard is gigantic. So much so that it doesn't really register in your mind as being related to the other pieces in the shop at all. Who the f can critisize minute paint details when the thing is over a friggin meter tall (j/k :D)? Too bad I'm not a fan of the Treebeard design in the movies nor of Merry and Pippin really, but, boy oh boy!
    Gandalf and Cart is just so quintessential Shire, it's hard not to like it. Plus I've taken a face close-up just for you, Phil!
    Gollum I still reeeeally don't like. Just looks pale and awkward to me, sorry. Maybe next life.

    Also great props in the cave, King Kong stands out here.
    And, please, please, please with sugar on top, release that rat monkey maquette from Braindead! Awhh!

    In the wake of the holiday, I did a buyback of the old Sideshow/Weta Aragorn statue for 150€ which I sold 10 years ago for somewhere around 600€. Funny how that works, lol.
    I'm also leaning towards getting Thrandruil on Elk (which is on display in the workshop, not the cave) and the Iron Dwarfs. Not sure if I'd keep both permanently, but they really stood out for me for some reason.
