    We're well into the new year and Golden Globes, Grammies and Baftas has been handed out to deserving

    award of them all. This is the fourth annual Flamies at The Flame of Udûn message boards and it is a big
    one. More categories than ever and more prizes than ever. The voting process is about halfway there.

    The Flight to the Ford
    Arwen with Frodo on Asfaloth has started shipping from the EU warehouse and the other
    warehouses are (most likely) not far behind. Several members have already posted their pictures and
    the new resin used for the skin parts of the statue is still a controversial topic when it comes to the elves,
    but our elven maiden is an impressive product none the less. Her companion piece, the new
    Ringwraith on Steed sold out in about a week’s time. With such a quick sell out we can only ask
    ourselves if Weta may end up making another Ringwraith in the ford some day. After all, there
    were more than 1 Ringwraith who faced Frodo and Arwen at Bruinen. The dark rider has an arrival
    date of Q4 2019, it’s a long way until we can have them both on the shelf together.

    2019 marks the 10 year anniversary of Neill Blomkamp's award winning motion picture District 9. Even
    if 10 years has passed since the "aliens in Petersburg buzz" filled the Internet, Weta is coming out with
    several new products now. After the big success of the Giant Killer Robots kickstarter, Weta will be
    starting a new campaign for a District 9 boardgame. If boardgames aren't your thing, Weta is now
    shipping the Mini Epics CJ and Wikus.
