    For those who already get her, do you think she worth the price ?

    I am really hype for her but I'm a bit worry before getting her in hands.
    Deep within the rock, they buried him. In a tomb so dark, it would never come to light

      Yes, no doubt about it. It’s a lot of money and I’d never spent so much on another statue, but she set the standards.

        Depends on how you look at it. I know I wanted this scene for a long time, and when it was finally made I had to buy it. My collectors heart tells me it is right. However, when looking at it rationally, I think this is way too expensive. For this money you can buy a new washing machine or something. I know I will have to think hard for my next buy, because statues of this price are not good for the budget.

          Wait, how do some people already have her? I feel like I preordered the second the link went up and don’t have a tracking link yet... I’m in New York...

            It has started shipping from the EU warehouse, not the US or NZ yet.

                Utterly impressive. A truly gorgeous piece. Thanks for all the great pics.

                I have not yet purchased this but my resolve is melting a bit after seeing this.

                  It's really tricky to judge the likeness well because of the new resin material, it would be great if someone would be able to take some photos while using downlights from above the face. Even a torch would work ok!

                  The shadows and light would reveal the sculpt better I think.



                  I have to be honest, I'm actually quite tempted by this statue, even though I have Glorfindel issues. And regardless of whether the facial likeness is ok, it's stunningly beautiful.

                  (although my wife says Arwen has big hairy feet, no matter how many times I say "They're Frodo's feet!" )

                  Glorfindel (and other storyline additions or modifications) aside, I loved Liv in the movie and was really impressed not only by her performance but also her ability to modify her US accent to British! Arwen was the perfect role for her, I felt the movie was better for her being in it

                          Indeed. Very curious to see it in person and be able to make some real hands on calculations of how I think it came out.

                                Sorry for the poor quality pics.

                                    I don't know horses well enough to differentiate between the different breeds and if this accurate to the one playing Asfaloth, but this sculpt is beautiful nonetheless. The only thing I am not entirely happy with is Arwen's face. But I know from Thranduil that they tend to look a lot better in person.

                                    Are you going to visit someone who've got it, Idril? You never ordered it for yourself, did you?

                                      Congratulations bill59 and thank you for sharing the photos !!!
                                      Good luck Ringer! I would highly recommend the original SSW Arwen, she is not only true to the books, but is a relative bargain for some reason, and the likeness is really very good

                                      Great shots Bill! Thank you so much

                                      Beautiful statue


                                      I own 2 Arwen statues already, the original SSW and the SS exclusive maquette. I'd never sell the original SSW, and no room for 3 Arwens, so if I possibly went for the new AaFoA statue I'd likely have to sell the SS maquette, which is a really stunning statue too.


                                      Hmmmmmmm... I'll keep thinking about this one, it's not low stock yet!

                                        It's a pleasure Valar. No problem at all. I still think AaFoA is well worth having. But to each their own. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

                                          Is that your picture, Valar? It's amazing how angles and lighting plays a part with how good a likeness is
